Nelson Chenault-USA Today Sports
The NCAA tournament will resume tomorrow, but tonight it’s all about the NBA. The FantasyLabs Player Props tool has identified a handful of potentially exploitable prop bets on today’s slate, with eight props current possessing a perfect Bet Quality of 10.
Here are three props that stand out for games starting at 7:00, 8:00, and 9:30 p.m. ET.
Grizzlies PG Andrew Harrison over 10.5 points (-140 at Bovada)
7:00 p.m. ET
The Grizzlies will be without Tyreke Evans (rest) for today’s contest, and Harrison has been one of the top beneficiaries in that situation so far this season. He’s seen a usage bump of 3.1 percentage points in games without Evans and Mike Conley this season, resulting in an average of 15.8 points per game. This game against the 76ers is also an extreme pace-up spot for the Grizzlies, with Philly currently averaging 4.4 more possessions per game.
Nuggets SG/SF Will Barton over 3.5 assists (-114 at BetOnline)
8:00 p.m. ET
Gary Harris remains out for the Nuggets, which should result in a boost in playing time for Barton. He hasn’t cracked the three-assist mark in any of his past four games, but Barton has seen a boost of 2.7 percentage points to his assist rate with Harris off the floor this season. The Nuggets have a nice matchup today with the Chicago Bulls, resulting in a slate-high implied team total of 114 points.
Wizards SF Kelly Oubre under 11 points (-120 at Sportsbook.com)
9:30 p.m. ET | ESPN
Oubre has been an important part of the rotation this season, but this line seems a bit high. He’s had 11 points or fewer in four of his past five games, and the Wizards have an extremely difficult matchup today against the San Antonio Spurs. They’re currently implied for just 98 points, which is the lowest mark on the slate and represents a decrease of nearly 10 points when compared to their seasonal average (107.5).
