- Monday's nine-game NBA slate features four player prop bets offering value
- This piece will focus on Heat C Hassan Whiteside, Heat PG Goran Dragic, Clippers PF Montrezl Harrell, and Warriors PG Quinn Cook
Prop bets can be a great way to get action on a game. Bookmakers don’t have to worry about taking a lot of action on them, so there isn’t as great an incentive to post a competitive line.
As a result, props can be some of the most exploitable bets on the board.
These props can become downright unfair when you combine them with the FantasyLabs Player Prop tool.
Monday’s best props focus on two of the slate’s nine games:
- Philadelphia 76ers at Miami Heat: 7:30 p.m. ET
- Golden State Warriors at Los Angeles Clippers: 10:30 p.m. ET on NBATV
Let’s dive right in.
Heat C Hassan Whiteside
The Pick: Over 14.0 points (-135)
Whiteside had a down season last year, but he’s rebounded nicely to start the 2018-19 campaign. He’s averaging 14.0 points in 29.4 minutes per game, so on the surface, this line seems fair.
That said, he’s played at least 32 minutes in each of his past three games, and he obviously has more scoring upside with more playing time.
Whiteside should see plenty of minutes today vs. Joel Embiid in the post. He averaged 15.3 points per game vs. the 76ers last season.
Our FantasyLabs crew is currently projecting Whiteside for 17 points, giving the over a Bet Quality of 9 in the Player Props tool. I’d play this up to -190.
