The best props for today’s NBA players

The following odds widgets represent the best odds currently available for every betting market in regulated sports betting.

What is the Russ?

Just when it looked like the trade was going to be a complete disaster for Russell Westbrook, the Clippers went on to have back-to-back wins over the Grizzlies and Raptors. However, it’s become abundantly clear that at this point in his career, Westbrook is better used as a role player than the star he once was.

He scored just nine points in 34 minutes against Memphis and then lost just seven points on six field goal attempts against Toronto in a modest 23 minutes. Today, the clips are home to a Knicks team that had won nine straight before dropping its last two contests.

Never a dangerous outside shooter, Westbrook has gotten most of his buckets on the rim attack. That doesn’t bode well for his success against a Knicks team that is allowing a league-low 45.5 points per game in the suit and fourth-lowest ppg (12.4) on the fastbreak.

If the Clips are to beat the Knicks, they should lean on Kawhi Leonard and Paul George to score while Westbrook once again takes a backseat. Take the Under 13.5 on Westbrook’s total score.

Russell Westbrook Prop: Less than 13.5 points (-115)

Tyus Stones does not sink

The Ja Morant saga continues in Memphis, and with Morant missing the last three games, backup point guard Tyus Jones has closed the gap. Jones is one of the better reserve point guards in the league and he’s usually done a great job filling in.

He had 25 points and 12 assists against the Clippers on Sunday, was held at 16 points and 3 assists by the Lakers on Tuesday, and then bounced back with a 22 points and 11 assists game against the Warriors on Thursday. Today, Jones and the Griz take on a Dallas team ranked 23rd in the league in defensive standings.

With Jones averaging 19.3 ppg and 7.9 apg in 12 games as a starter this season, put the over 23.5 on his total points and assists.

spread wings

Pelicans forward Herb Jones has seen his minutes spike lately, which should mean plenty of production today against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The sophomore is a modest 9.5 ppg and 4.1 rpg in 29.1 mpg this season, but has logged at least 36 minutes in each of his last three games. He had nine rebounds against the Mavs on Wednesday and before that he had eight boards against the Kings on Monday.

Jones is the Pelicans’ best defender and they should keep giving him plenty of fire, at least until Zion Williamson returns later this month.

The Thunder play at the third fastest pace in the league and are an underperforming shooting team, so there should be plenty of available rebounds in this competition. Expect Jones to fill the stat sheet again today and hit the Over 5.5 on his rebounds.

Herbert Jones prop: Over 5.5 rebounds (+112 at FanDuel)
