PrizePicks NBA Player Props | Feb. 5

Domantas Sabonis Under 8.0 Assists

Sabonis’ assist line has jumped up slightly from his season average of 7.0 per game, likely due to De’Aaron Fox remaining out for personal reasons. However, Sabonis has been on a bit of a cold streak of late in the assist department. He failed to reach eight assists in each of the last five games after a streak of hitting the line in seven straight, and he only recorded six last time out despite Fox missing that game.

Sabonis is projecting for big minutes against the Pelicans (36.5), but the game total is a middling 228 at the moment. As such, Stokastic’s PrizePicks NBA player props tool is only predicting 7.1 assists for Sabonis, giving the under a 67% expected win rate, the highest of Sunday’s slate.

Pascal Siakam Over 5.0 Assists

This is a massive pace-up spot for Toronto against the fifth-fastest team in the NBA in Memphis. Granted, the Grizzlies may be without their fastest player in Ja Morant, but this is still a solid environment for over plays on the Raptors.

Siakam is averaging over six assists per game this season, and this line across the industry is a much more appropriate 5.5. But PrizePicks is offering some value by dropping the half point, and now Siakam’s over is coming in with a 65% win expectancy, second highest on the board (excluding the 1 p.m. Magic-Hornets game). The lower line is likely due to Siakam’s slump in assists — fewer than five assists in four of the last five games — but the matchup is giving a bump to his projection. Aside from the pace benefit for Toronto, the Grizzlies may also be without Jaren Jackson Jr., the league’s top rim protector at the moment, and his absence will lead to far better opportunities to score in the paint.

Keep an eye on the injury updates, as the statuses of Jackson and Morant could both impact the expected win rate on this over play. But as it stands, Stokastic’s PrizePicks NBA player props tool projects Siakam for 5.9 assists in 37.6 minutes.

With numerous injury questions on this slate, it’s crucial to have up-to-date information before finalizing your NBA player props. Tune in to the Stokastic Live Before Lock show at 4:45 p.m. ET for expert analysis and all the latest news.
