Here are our favorite NBA prop bets for Wednesday, April 5:
Over the last two games, Jalen Brunson was averaging 8.5 assists per game for the Knicks. Only three players in the league have a higher usage rate than Brunson’s 35.7% in that span, which definitely has a lot to do with Julius Randle having been out. Well, Randle is out for the remainder of the season, and Brunson is nursing an injury in this one. So, that should open up some opportunities for Immanuel Quickley.
Quickley is averaging 5.6 assists per game in the last five games in which he has played at least 35 minutes. He should hit that number when it comes to playing time here, and it wouldn't be shocking if he actually played a lot more. And getting to work against a Pacers team that gives up a lot of points helps. Indiana is also giving up more assists per game than all but three teams this year. Look for him to easily have six or more dimes.
Bet: Quickley Over 5.5 Assists (-130)
Brandon Ingram is playing some great basketball lately, but this a tough matchup for him. Ingram just had 22 points against the Sacramento Kings last night, but this is a tougher game tonight. The Grizzlies are second in the league in defensive rating, so they’ll have a plan to defend him.
Even without Dillon Brooks, Memphis still has some defensive-minded players that can keep Ingram in check. Ingram also had 19 points when he faced this team earlier in the year, so it’s not like he torched them earlier on. We’re playing the under on his 28.5-point total we’re and not thinking twice about it.
Bet: Ingram Under 28.5 Points (-115)
Kyrie Irving’s scoring has been a little all over the place since getting to Dallas, but he is coming off a 41-point game against the Atlanta Hawks. And he now gets to face a Kings team that doesn’t play a lick of defense. Irving played two games against this Sacramento squad immediately after being traded to the Mavericks and averaged 24.5 points per game over those two games. That’s the point total for Irving tonight, but we’re expecting him to go over it — and it honestly feel he’s worth a ladder play.
Irving just won’t face much resistance from this group of Sacramento perimeter defenders, especially with the Kings having just played on the road last night. Having to travel and play back-to-back games is tough in this league, and Irving should take advantage of the tired legs here.
Bet: Irving Over 24.5 Points (-127)
