The NBA season is well underway so why not start getting down on a few player props for tonight? The NFL player props are doing well for me, hitting at a 60%+ rate so I hope we can cash for the NBA Player props also. Tonight features five games on the NBA schedule and I have three player props for the games. Let me dive right into it!
NBA Player Props
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Points + Rebounds + Assists Over 31.5
So far this season Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 22.9 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 3.6 assists per game. Tonight the Thunder face the Lakers in Los Angeles. The Thunder have faced the Lakers once earlier this season. In that one game, Alexander finished with 27 points, nine rebounds, and five assists. Furthermore, the Lakers are allowing close to 25 points, along with 7.8 rebounds and 10.2 assists per game to point guards. I believe Gilgeous-Alexander should continue his success tonight against the Lakers.
Jimmy Butler Points + Rebounds Over 29.5
Jimmy Butler is playing at an MVP level to start the season for the Miami Heat. Butler is averaging 25 points and 6.9 rebounds per game. Tonight, the Heat take on the Celtics at home. The Celtics defense is allowing 21.2 points and 10.2 rebounds per game to the small forward position. Furthermore, Butler has eclipsed this projection in four out of the last five games. I expect Butler to have a big game tonight for the Heat to get this NBA player prop over the total.

Chris Paul Over 9.5 Assists
Chris Paul and the Phoenix Suns take on his former team the Houston Rockets tonight. So far this season Chris Paul leads the league in assists per game, averaging 11.8 per outing. In fact, Paul has recorded 10 or more assists in every game so far this season except for one which was the last game against the Pelicans. He should get back on track tonight against the Rockets. I love this NBA player prop to get over the total tonight.
