NBA Daily Picks: Player Props
It is crazy to think there are only four games left in the NBA season. Makes me a little sad but also excited for the NBA Playoffs! However, there are plenty of betting opportunities remaining, especially in the player props market. Last week, the daily prop picks went 1-2 but I am continuing to have a profitable season. Hopefully, we can keep it going tonight with my NBA Daily Picks: Player Props.

Michael Porter Jr. Over 24.5 Points
Michael Porter Jr has taken the leap we were all expecting from him this season. More so, he is on a whole other level since the injury to Jamal Murray. In fact, over the last 10 games, Michael Porter Jr. is averaging 27 points per game while shooting 50.6% from the three-point line. Over his last three games, MPJ is averaging close to 30 points per game. I expect his scoring tear to continue tonight against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Nikola Vucevic Over 11.5 Rebounds
This almost seems like an auto bet for me every single night, but I especially love it tonight. The Chicago Bulls visit the Toronto Raptors, who lack a true big man who can contain Nikola Vucevic. Furthermore, the Raptors get dominated on the boards every single night. Tonight will be the fourth matchup for Vucevic against the Toronto Raptors, with Vucevic averaging 13 rebounds per game against them thus far. Over the last seven days, the Raptors have allowed 19.5 rebounds per game to the center position. I expect Vucevic to have a big game on the boards tonight.
D’Angelo Russell Over 2.5 Three Point Shots Made
Since Russell returned from his injury, he was coming off the bench. Now, Russell is back in the starting lineup and shooting the ball well. In fact, Russell is averaging nine attempts per game over the last five from the three-point line. Russell has also made two or more three-point shots in three straight games. Denver ranks #26 in opponent three-point shots made over the last five games.
Lastly, in the two matchups against the Denver Nuggets this season Russell is averaging 25.5 points per game and shooting 50% from the three-point line. He also made four three-point shots in both of those matchups.
D’angelo Russell tonight vs the Magic

Bonus Parlay: Miami Heat -2 & Spurs/Knicks Over 216.5
The Heat are on a tear as of late and playing their best basketball as we wind down the season. They have won six out of their last seven games and covered in five out of the last six games. The Heat are healthy and playing their best basketball at the right time. In addition, this game is more important for the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference standings as they are bunched in the 4th-6th seed range.
I have bet the Over in the San Antonio Spurs last two games playing Eastern Conference opponents. The Spurs are the best team to the Over in non-conference games. In fact, the Spurs are 20-9 to the Over in those games for 69%. Furthermore, the Spurs are #29 in defensive efficiency over their last 10 games, trailing only the Houston Rockets.
