Today’s Top NBA Player Props | Jan. 24

Victor Oladipo Prop O/U 1.5 Steals

The Miami Heat will face the shorthanded Boston Celtics tonight. Boston head coach Joe Mazzulla has already ruled out Marcus Smart, Jaylen Brown, Malcolm Brogdon and Al Horford. The Celtics will have to rely on their reserves, which could present an opportunity for Victor Oladipo to swipe the ball from inexperienced players.

Oladipo is averaging 1.7 steals per game this year. He recorded three steals in his most recent appearance, and NBA Bet Pro projects him for 1.8 steals tonight. That gives this play an expected win rate of 46%, far better than the 40.8% implied odds available at BetMGM. This play is one of two with double-digit EV on the board, and bettors and find the other by signing up for a one-week free trial of NBA Bet Pro.

Jayson Tatum Prop O/U 5.5 Assists

With the Boston Celtics shorthanded, Jayson Tatum will need to step into a bigger role tonight. But the books have jacked up the forward’s assist prop to 5.5, more than a full assist higher than his season average (4.4). Tatum has faced the Heat three times this season and is yet to record more than four assists.

Although it’s easy to assume that Tatum will benefit from Boston’s shorthanded roster, the Celtics could pull him early if things get out of hand. Further, the players left for him to pass to may struggle to convert their shots. NBA Bet Pro has Tatum dishing out exactly five assists tonight, which is enough to give this play an expected win rate of 52%. That’s better than the 48.5% implied odds available at FanDuel Sportsbook. Users yet to register at FanDuel can secure $150 in bonus bets with a $5 wager.

Luka Doncic Prop O/U 8.5 Assists

Like the Boston Celtics, the Dallas Mavericks won’t have a few key pieces. Maxi Kleber and Christian Wood will remain out with injuries for tonight’s home matchup against the Washington Wizards. Although Doncic is averaging 8.7 assists per game this year, he is yet to record more than seven in a game without Wood this season.

NBA Bet Pro projects Doncic for exactly eight assists tonight, which gives this wager a projected win rate of 52%. Bettors can score a fair squeeze of value relative to the 48.8% implied odds available at DraftKings Sportsbook. Users yet to register at DraftKings can become eligible for $200 in bonus bets after placing a $5 wager!
