NBA best bets today (Prop predictions for Brandon Ingram, Kyrie Irving, Russell Westbrook and more)
Fresh off a 2-2 night in my NBA picks, I’m back with a prop night for Saturday, April 1!
There are just two NBA games on the slate with the Final Four also taking place tonight, but I’ll be locked in on several of the stars in the matchups tonight.
Kawhi Leonard is playing in a back-to-back for the first time in years, the Miami Heat and Dallas Mavericks are fighting for play-in tournament position and Brandon Ingram may be the hottest player in basketball.
What does that lead to? Four NBA best bets, including a four-pick player prop parlay!
Let’s jump into the plays for Saturday:
NBA best bets record to date
NBA best bets today
- Brandon Ingram OVER 39.5 Points, Rebounds and Assists (-120)
- Kyrie Irving OVER 4.5 Assists (-155)
- Russell Westbrook OVER 11.5 Rebounds and Assists (-130)
- Four-pick prop parlay (+108)
Brandon Ingram OVER 39.5 Points, Rebounds and Assists (-120)
Brandon Ingram is playing some of the best basketball of his career, averaging 28.8 points, 6.2 rebounds and 8.0 assists per game over his last nine games.
Playing with the ball in his hands on just about every possession, Ingram earned Western Conference Player of the Week honors, and he’s cleared this PRA line in six of those nine games, landing on exactly 39 PRA once.
Against the Clippers on March 25, Ingram scored 32 points and added 13 assists and four rebounds, soaring past this number.
Los Angeles is in the second night of a back-to-back after losing to the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday, so I expect Ingram to take advantage of the Clips tonight.
Kyrie Irving OVER 4.5 Assists (-155)
If you’re going to bet on this prop, rush to DraftKings Sportsbook while it’s still available at 4.5!
Since being traded to the Mavericks, Irving has picked up five or more dimes in 14 of his 17 games, averaging 5.9 assists per game.
While Miami is ninth in defensive rating on the season, the team has dropped to 26th in the league since the All-Star break. Not only that, but defensive anchor Bam Adebayo is questionable for the Heat tonight.
Dallas could have its way on offense, and Irving and Luka Doncic should be able to create some easy looks for their teammates.
This prop should be at 5.5, so if you can find a 4.5 (like at DraftKings) jump on it before it’s too late.
Russell Westbrook OVER 11.5 Rebounds and Assists (-130)
Forget scoring, I love Russell Westbrook to stuff the stat sheet in different ways tonight after picking up double-digit assists in three straight games.
Westbrook has cleared this line in three of his five games since Paul George went down with a knee injury, and he’s averaging 7.7 assists and 4.9 rebounds per game since joining the Clippers.
Russ is going to initiate more offense with George out, so don’t be shocked if he pushes double-digit assists again, which should help him easily clear this line.
Four-pick prop parlay (+108)
- Jimmy Butler 18+ Points
- Kyrie Irving 18+ Points
- Kawhi Leonard 18+ Points
- C.J. McCollum 2+ 3-Pointers Made
Why not dabble in a little parlay tonight?
Jimmy Butler: Starting with Jimmy Butler, who is averaging 25.1 points per game over his last 16 contests, I expect him to bounce-back from a 12-point game his last time out, especially if Adebayo sits for the Heat tonight.
Kyrie Irving: Irving has played 17 games in Dallas, and he’s scored at least 18 points in 15 of them. He’s averaging 26.1 points per game for the Mavs.
Kawhi Leonard: This may be the toughest leg of this group since Leonard is playing his first back-to-back since April 2021, but he’s averaging over 23 points per game and has picked up at least 18 in 28 of his last 31 games.
C.J. McCollum: C.J. McCollum is hot from deep right now, hitting three or more shots from beyond the arc in five straight games and seven of his last eight. This month, he’s shooting 44.8 percent from 3 and averaging 3.1 made shots from deep per game.
