  • Saturday's eight-game NBA slate features two player prop bets offering value.
  • This piece will focus on Pacers C Myles Turner and Nuggets C Nikola Jokic.

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 our FantasyLabs Player Prop tool.

Saturday’s best props focus on two of the slate’s eight games:

  • Sacramento Kings at Indiana Pacers: 7 p.m. ET
  • Denver Nuggets at Atlanta Hawks: 7:30 p.m. ET

Let’s dive right in.

Pacers C Myles Turner

The Pick: Over 13.5 points (-114)

Turner was limited to just 20 minutes of playing time on Friday, which was surprising considering the absence of Domantas Sabonis. That said, he picked up four fouls and the game turned into a blowout, so I don’t think there’s much cause for concern moving forward. He had played at least 29 minutes in each of his prior four games and scored at least 14 points in three of them.
