NBA Friday Night Player Props
NBA Friday night has ten games on the schedule and I have three player props I love for tonight. There are must-see games tonight. The Dallas Mavericks (-6.5) visit the Big Apple to take on the New York Knicks. In addition, the Charlotte Hornets visit the Indiana Pacers (-4). The game of the night features the Milwaukee Bucks (-3) taking on the Portland Trailblazers. Let me dive right into the NBA Friday night player props!
Pascal Siakam Over 21.5 Points
Over the last seven days the Golden State Warriors are the worst defense against the power forward position. In fact, the Warriors allow 29 points per game to the power forward position on 61% shooting from the field. Furthermore, in 17 home games this season Siakam averages 21.2 points per game on 45% shooting. Lastly. in the matchup against the Warriors earlier this season, Siakam scored 25 points on 9/19 shooting and nine free throw attempts.
Robert Covington Over 2.5 Three Point Shots Made
Covington is on a tear from the three point line over the last five games. In fact, Covington has made three or four pointers in the last five games. Furthermore, over the last 10 games Covington is shooting 51.7% from the three point line. Over the last 10 games, the Milwaukee Bucks rank #27 in opponent three point shots made and attempts per game. With the focus on Lillard and McCollum tonight there should be plenty of opportunities for Covington to knock down the three point shot.
Jonas Valanciunas Over 17.5 Points
There is no secret the Minnesota Timberwolves are one of the worst defenses in the entire league. In fact, the Timberwolves rank #26 in defensive efficiency in the league. Also, the Timberwolves rank #28 in the entire league in points in the paint allowed. Furthermore, over the last seven days the Timberwolves allow 24.1 points per game to the center position. Jonas Valanciunas scored 24 points against the Timberwolves earlier this season. I expect Valanciunas to continue to have success tonight inside the paint against the lackluster paint defense of the Timberwolves.
