O.G. Anunoby Over 4.5 Rebounds (+108, FanDuel) (FanDuel New York Betting Offer)

Toronto Raptors forward O.G. Anunoby comes into Sunday’s matchup against the New Orleans Pelicans averaging 5.2 rebounds per game. He had four boards total on Friday after exceeding the NBA player props line of 4.5 in each of the two games prior. After a combination of injuries and health and safety protocols prevented Anunoby from being a mainstay in the lineup, the 24-year-old is finally fully healthy and back to playing over 30 minutes per game. Awesemo believes there is value in playing over 4.5 boards for Anunoby tonight.

One non-basketball handicapping factor to consider is that the Raptors are currently not allowing any fans to attend home games at Scotiabank Arena. As a result, their games have seen much higher point totals and have been played at quicker paces. The atmosphere resembles that of “The Bubble” in Orlando two years ago which also saw faster play and higher-scoring games. More possessions will lead to more rebounding opportunities for all players across the board. Best of all, OddsShopper shows that favorable +108 odds are available on this over prop bet. Awesemo gives the prediction an expected ROI north of 20% at that profitable price.

Nassir Little Over 12.5 Points (-102, FanDuel) (FanDuel New York Betting Offer)

Despite both sides being shorthanded to varying extents, plenty of points are expected in tonight’s matchup between the Sacramento Kings and Portland Trail Blazers. Given that both clubs allow north of 113 points per game and rank among the bottom five in defensive efficiency, this handicap is certainly justified. The Blazers are particularly depleted with each of Damian Lillard, C.J. McCollum and Larry Nance Jr. set to miss tonight’s matchup. The plethora of absences has enabled Nassir Little to carve out a solid role in Portland’s rotation.

Little has exceeded 30 minutes of playing time in each of the last three games. While he fell short of tonight’s NBA betting line of 12.5 points in each of the last two contests, his 22-point performance on Monday served as an indication of what Little is capable of offensively. Awesemo’s projections peg the 21-year-old for 13.53 points in tonight’s contest. The projection thus offers an edge of one full point over the NBA player props market. In addition, OddsShopper can help bettors locate favorable -102 odds that offer nine cents better value than competing sportsbooks. The expected ROI for this prop bet tonight is 16% at that price.

Malik Monk Under 18.5 Points (-122, FanDuel) (FanDuel New York Betting Offer)

Considering that he has sailed over the 20-point mark in three straight games, there might be some initial hesitation to be under 18.5 points for Malik Monk tonight. However, the Los Angeles Lakers guard simply cannot sustain his recent shooting numbers forever. Scoring outputs of 22, 24 and 29 over the last three games respectively dwarf his per-game average of 12.9 points on the season. The 23-year-old has knocked down 17 three-pointers over the last three games. That is an absolutely absurd stat for a player who is shooting less than 40% from beyond the arc on the season and under 35% for his career overall.

Awesemo anticipates regression on the horizon for Monk tonight. OddsShopper shows that the NBA player props market agrees with that sentiment. In fact, the majority of sportsbooks have this NBA betting line one full point lower at 17.5. The Lakers’ previous three opponents are nowhere near the caliber of the Memphis Grizzlies, particularly on the defensive end. The Grizz enter Sunday with a top-10 ranking in defensive efficiency. Awesemo’s projection of 16.64 points results in a win probability of 64% and an ROI of 16% at the favorable line and odds.
