Best NBA Player Props: Can Jaden Ivey Sink His Three Pointers? (January 30)

The NBA will kick off the work week with a solid eight-game card tonight. The matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets would headline the card, but both Anthony Davis and LeBron James will sit this one out. With nine other games to handicap, even the best bettors may let the sharpest player props slip through their fingers. The below Jaden Ivey prop stands out as especially easy to miss.

Enter Stokastic’s new NBA Bet Pro. Instead of manually sifting through each game to find value, bettors can now sort every prop market by expected ROI. NBA Bet Pro pulls lines from every major sportsbook to help you find the best deal available for that given play. If you’re not convinced, see how much money you make after a one-week free trial of the product.

Stokastic’s NBA Bet Pro model is all over these three NBA player props for Monday.

Today’s Top NBA Player Props | Jan. 30

Josh Giddey Prop O/U 0.5 Steals 

The Oklahoma City Thunder will face the Golden State Warriors tonight. Although second-year guard Josh Giddey has averaged 0.7 steals per game this year, the NBA Bet Pro model doesn’t expect much from him defensively tonight. Giddey averaged a single steal per game against the Warriors last season.

NBA Bet Pro projects Giddey for exactly 0.7 steals tonight, right at his season average. But with BetMGM listing the under far into the plus money, users can still find an edge relative to the implied odds of 40.8% — Giddey has a 44% chance of staying under this line. This bet is one of the best on the slate, per NBA Bet Pro, and users looking for more high-value NBA player props should sign up for the tool now before the price increases next month!

Best NBA Player Prop: Josh Giddey Under 0.5 Steals (+145) at BetMGM

Jaden Ivey Prop O/U 1.5 3-Pointers 

The Detroit Pistons have leaned on their rookie guard, Jaden Ivey, with Cade Cunningham out for the season. Ivey has averaged an impressive 15.1 points and 1.3 3-pointers per game this year. His production has ticked up lately, too — Ivey is averaging 15.3 points and 1.4 3-pointers per game in January. He’ll face the shorthanded Dallas Mavericks tonight.

Ivey should make 1.7 3-pointers tonight, per NBA Bet Pro. That gives the over a 43% chance of hitting, far better than the implied odds of 39.7% available at Caesars Sportsbook, making it the highest-EV bet on the slate. Users who have yet to register at Caesars can even secure first-bet insurance of up to $1,250!

Best NBA Player Prop: Jaden Ivey Prop Over 1.5 3-Pointers (+152) at Caesars

Keita Bates-Diop Prop O/U 3.5 Rebounds 

Although Keita Bates-Diop isn’t a household name, he stands to make bettors a solid amount of money tonight. He and the San Antonio Spurs will take on the Washington Wizards at home tonight, and Bates-Diop has recorded at 5.7 rebounds per game since returning to San Antonio’s starting lineup three games ago — far above the total at which books are taking action.

NBA Bet Pro projects Bates-Diop for 5.1 rebounds tonight. That gives the over an expected win rate of 65%, well above the implied odds of 61.5% available at DraftKings Sportsbook. Users yet to register at DraftKings can secure $200 in bonus bets after placing a $5 wager. Those in Ohio can access that deal via this link instead.

Best NBA Player Prop: Keita Bates-Diop Over 3.5 Rebounds (-160) at DraftKings

Bet $5 on the NBA tonight and get $150 if your first pregame moneyline wager wins!
