The 2022-23 NBA season continues on Sunday, February 26th, with 18 teams in action.
Take a look at three strong player props for tonight’s action, featuring LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and Nikola Jokic.
NBA Player Prop #1: LeBron James Over 26.5 Points (-110)
LeBron James is currently ranked seventh in the league in scoring. The Los Angeles Lakers star is averaging 29.6 points per game while shooting 50.3% from the field, 31.0% from three-point range and 76.0% from the free-throw line. James has scored at least 27 points in 30 of his 46 games played this season. While LeBron has only scored 27 points in one of his two matchups with the Dallas Mavericks this season, he is averaging 31.0 points against the Mavericks defense. Look for the four-time NBA MVP to bounce back from a poor night on Thursday as he finishes with at least 27 points.
NBA Player Prop #2: Kyrie Irving Over 24.5 Points (-110)
Kyrie Irving is right behind LeBron James on the scoring leaderboard as he is ranked eighth in the league in that department. The Dallas Mavericks star is averaging 27.1 points per game while shooting 49.2% from the field, 38.2% from three-point range and 89.6% from the free-throw line. Irving has scored at least 25 points in 29 of his 45 games played this season. In his only matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers this season, the eight-time All-Star finished with 26 points while shooting 7-16 from the field, 3-7 from three-point range and 9-11 from the free-throw line. Look for Irving to finish at least 25 points on Sunday.
NBA Player Prop #3: Nikola Jokic Over 49.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists (-110)
If the season ended today, Nikola Jokic would become the third player in NBA history to average a triple-double. The Denver Nuggets star is currently averaging 24.5 points, 11.6 rebounds, and 10.0 points per game while shooting 63.2% from the field, 40.2% from three-point range, and 82.6% from the free-throw line. Jokic currently ranks 19th in scoring, third in rebounding, and fourth in assists. Look for the two-time NBA MVP to finish with at least 50 combined points, rebounds, and assists for the seventh time in his last 15 games.
