I am coming off a perfect 3-0 result on NBA Player Prop bets from Wednesday night. I hope to continue that momentum for tonight’s action!
There is nothing like a nine game NBA slate on the Friday night docket. We have a few marquee matchups tonight on the schedule. The Utah Jazz go down to South Beach to take on the Miami Heat. The Portland Trail Blazers visit the Los Angeles Lakers. Lastly, the Charlotte Hornets take on the Golden State Warriors. In this post I will highlight my three-best bet for NBA Player Prop.
Shai Gilgeous Alexander Over 2 Three-Point Shots Made
Alexander was one of my best bets from Wednesday night and he absolutely crushed the Over. So why not continue riding the hot hand? In his last 10 games, Alexander is averaging 27.8 points on 51% shooting. Furthermore, Alexander is shooting 54.3% from the three-point line. As a matter of fact, Alexander has made at least two-three-point shots in every game in the month of February. In addition, the Hawks defense is one of the worst against guards this season and I expect that to continue against Alexander tonight. This is my favorite NBA player prop for tonight.
Jordan Clarkson Over 16.5 Points
There is no doubt Clarkson is a lock for the Sixth Man of the Year Award this season. Clarkson is averaging 18.3 points per game this season and shooting 38.1% from the three-point line. Furthermore, over his last 10 games Clarkson is averaging 19.6 points per game, as well as averaging 18.2 points per game on the road. Miami Heat’s three-point defense is amongst the bottom half of the league. In fact, Miami Heat rank #28 in three points allowed and are dead last in three-point attempts allowed. This will be a huge factor for Clarkson, who loves to shoot threes and is averaging close to 10 attempts per game. This NBA player prop bet has a great chance of hitting.

Lebron James Over 28.5 Points
This NBA player prop bet seems conservative to me. I expect to a big performance tonight from Lebron James. In fact, the Lakers get Dennis Schroder back tonight to take over the point guard duties and take that responsibility from Lebron to focus more on the scoring. Furthermore, the Blazers are #29 in defensive efficiency this season. LeBron as a member of the Lakers is averaging 28.8 points per game against the Blazers.
