Over 3.5 Rebounds (-105, FanDuel)
While crashing the glass is far from the primary skillset Young brings to the table, he certainly has been a consistent rebounder of late. So consistent, in fact, that he has snared three rebounds in each of the Hawks’ last four games. Going back a bit further on the recent timeline, Young has finished with no fewer than three rebounds in each of his last eight games played. He has successfully eclipsed tonight’s NBA player props line of 3.5 boards in three of those contests. With starting center Clint Capela already having been ruled out for tonight’s MLK Day matchup, the Hawks will once again need other players to pick up the slack on the boards.
Awesemo has a firm statistical edge on the over for Young’s rebounding prop, pegging him for 4.25 rebounds . Considering the importance of this holiday in the city of Atlanta, it would only be fitting if the Hawks’ biggest star puts on a workman-like performance. OddsShopper shows the current optimal price on this prop to be -105 odds. This results in a solid 19% expected ROI to go along with a win probability greater than 60%.

Over 8.5 Assists (+110, Caesars)
Our second featured Young NBA betting prediction affords bettors the opportunity to find a solid edge on plus-money odds. Despite the fact that Young comes into tonight’s contest averaging 9.3 assists per game, OddsShopper is showing that the NBA player props market is juiced to the under on the line of 8.5 assists. At one sportsbook, the odds have swayed so far that a +110 price is now available on the over. While Young has only exceeded the betting line once in the last four games, a high number of points are expected in tonight’s game given the sound offensive efficiency ratings of both teams. Awesemo projects the former Oklahoma star for 9.12 assists in this matchup. While the win probability of the over is only 56%, the ROI is a healthy 17% thanks to the greater potential return.
Under 27.5 Points (-110, FanDuel)
Tonight’s NBA player props scoring total of 27.5 falls right in line with Young’s per-game scoring average of 27.6 points on the season. While he did exceed both marks with a 29-point performance in the Hawks’ most recent game on Saturday, that is the only time he has done so in five games played since dropping 56 points on January 3rd. With the Bucks boasting a top-10 defensive efficiency ranking coming into tonight’s matchup, Awesemo is inclined to look towards the under on Young’s scoring prop. The projection of 25.65 points lands nearly two whole tallies below the NBA betting total. The result is yet another positive ROI wager (13% to be exact) at the optimal price of -110. Bettors should check in with OddsShopper before placing this bet to ensure the best value possible as the odds have been moving constantly on either side.
