Prop bets have become an increasingly popular way to cash in on NBA games. And with eight games on Friday’s NBA schedule, there are plenty of ways to cash in on tonight’s action. But with so much uncertainty after the trade deadline, you’ll need some help to navigate which prop bets to jump all over. Therefore, before finalizing any prop bet picks for Friday’s NBA action, first check out what Mike McClure has to say. He’s a professional daily Fantasy player with almost $2 million in career winnings and has found value on several NBA player prop bets for the day’s slate.
McClure is also a predictive data engineer at SportsLine who uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every minute of every game 10,000 times, taking factors like matchups, statistical trends and injuries into account. This allows him to find the best prop bet values that he shares only over at SportsLine. They’re a must-see before committing to any NBA props.
One of the top NBA prop bets for Friday that we’ll give away: McClure says go Under 27.5 combined points, rebounds and assists for Kings guard De’Aaron Fox, who takes on the Miami Heat at 10 p.m. ET.
McClure’s projection model is calling for Fox to hit 26 in that category as he gets acclimated to his new teammates Harrison Barnes and Alec Burks. “The addition of Harrison Barnes and Alec Burks should mean a decrease in usage for Fox,” McClure said.
Plus, Fox has failed to score double-digit points in two of his last four games at home. And Miami’s defense will make it hard for Fox to put up big numbers on Friday night. The Heat rank third in the NBA in total defense, giving up just 105 points per game. They also rank third in field goal percentage, holding their opponents to just 44 percent from the field.
McClure is also targeting an NBA player prop that is way off, according to his model. He projects this player’s floor to be higher than his prop line, so there’s massive value on this play. He’s only sharing what prop bet it is, and who to back, at SportsLine.
