Joel Embiid Player Props, Picks
*Odds and projections as of Monday afternoon
According to our NBA player prop picks, the most valuable way to back Jokic is by taking a couple of his unders.
As of the time of writing we project the Nuggets center for 8.2 assists, and his current assists total is listed at 9.5 across the board. On a 1-10 scale, our prop projections grade that as a 10.
Additionally, his rebounds + assists prop number of 21.5 is worth a play to the low side as well, as we project him at 19.4. This grades in at an 8 on the 1-10 scale.
Backing Jokic unders may not be the most attractive thing to do, but in this situation that’s what the models are calling for.
