Friday Happy Hour: Escalator Props

A quarter of the way into the NBA season, Action Network analysts Brandon Anderson and Joe Dellera discuss some of the NBA prop angles they’ve been smashing lately with success.  They go into the nitty gritty of how they choose which props to play every day, which stats and players to target, and what specific opportunities to look for. The guys also introduce a new idea: Escalator Props.  Sometimes you look at a prop line and think if this guy goes over, he’ll go way over — so how do we profit from that? Rather than guessing a number and trying to pick the perfect alternate line, Escalator Props are a way to hit multiple lines on the way up with varying bet sizes in hopes of a bigger and better payout. Brandon and Joe explain and talk props strategy from every angle. If you're into NBA props, this is an episode you won't want to miss! And if you play Fantasy Basketball, tune into the Week 8 Lookahead with Action Network analysts Dan Titus and Adam Koffler dropping on Monday.
