Best NBA Player Props: Will Markelle Fultz Rack Up Steals? (January 28)

After a small Friday slate, the NBA has a jam-packed card this Saturday featuring a marquee Boston Celtics-Los Angeles Lakers matchup in primetime. But with 10 other, lower-profile games to handicap, even the best bettors may let the sharpest player props slip through their fingers. The below Markelle Fultz 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 Saturday.

Today’s Top NBA Player Props | Jan. 28

Jayson Tatum Prop O/U 9.5 Rebounds 

The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers will square off on TNT tonight, and despite the number of players both sides have listed as questionable, bettors can secure an edge on the rebounding markets for Jayson Tatum. The books have simply gassed his total up too high: Tatum is averaging 8.7 rebounds per game this year, but the books have opened his prop up at 9.5.

The NBA Bet Pro model projects him for 8.1 rebounds tonight, both below his average and this total. Bettors eager to capitalize on this fact should head to Unibet for the best price. This play is one of only three with EV at or above 9% tonight, and bettors can find the others by signing up for NBA Bet Pro. Users who sign up now will secure a lower price point than the one available next month!

Best NBA Player Prop: Jayson Tatum Under 9.5 Rebounds (-125) at Unibet

Markelle Fultz Prop O/U 1.5 Steals

The Orlando Magic will head north for a battle against the Chicago Bulls. Although the Magic aren’t contending for the Eastern Conference title, their young players have taken some strides this year, especially Paolo Banchero. But point guard Markelle Fultz makes for the best target on the betting markets, according to NBA Bet Pro.

Fultz should swipe the ball 1.6 times tonight, per NBA Bet Pro. That slots in slightly above this total and gives this play an expected win rate of 40%. Since Caesars Sportsbook has the juice for the over set to a bloated +178, bettors can score a ton of value relative to the implied odds of 36%. Users yet to register at Caesars can even secure first-bet insurance of up to $1,250!

Best NBA Player Prop: Markelle Fultz Over 1.5 Steals (+178) at Caesars

Looking for extra cash? New users at DraftKings Sportsbook can secure $200 in bonus bets! All you need to do is make a $5 bet, and you’ll receive the $200 whether your bet wins or loses.

Cameron Johnson O/U 2.5 3-Pointers

After losing to the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday night, the Phoenix Suns will face the San Antonio Spurs in Texas. San Antonio’s defensive struggles make it a great time to target Phoenix’s players, especially forward Cameron Johnson. Johnson has averaged 2.9 3-pointers per game since returning to the lineup.

NBA Bet Pro has Johnson making 3.5 triples tonight, which gives this play an expected win rate of 60%. That sits slightly above the 57.5% implied odds 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: Cameron Johnson Over 2.5 3-Pointers (-135) at DraftKings
