4 NBA Player Props & Same Game Parlay for Friday, January 6
Eleven games are on the NBA slate for Friday, January 6, and we’re ready to roll. We’ve carefully analyzed each game and found 4 player props and a Same Game Parlay to invest in.
Best of luck with all your NBA action tonight! Let’s get a jump start on making this a fantastic betting weekend!
Damian Lillard UNDER 29.5 Points (-122 FanDuel)
Lillard posted only 21 points in his last meeting with the Pacers and is averaging under 28 points per game on the year. Over his last 9 games, he has exceeded this number just twice.
We expect the Pacers to be able to contain Dame once again here and hold him under the 30 mark. If the Blazers want to steal this victory on the road, they’ll need someone else to help Lillard do the scoring.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander OVER 30.5 Points (-110 BetMGM)
SGA is having one of the best seasons of any young player in the league. He is finally gaining recognition with a good number of All-Star votes but is still not a common name among casual NBA fans just yet.
He is averaging just over 30 points per game. He faces the Wizards tonight, who he faced back in mid-November when he dropped 42 on them.
Andrew Nembhard OVER 3.5 Rebounds (+115 DraftKings)
Nembhard is averaging just over 3 rebounds per game. However, he has gone over this number in 5 of his 8 last games and held an average of 4 over the course of December.
In his last meeting with the Raptors, he posted 6 boards. He seems to be finding ways to contribute more and more on the glass, and we like getting him at plus money here.
Scottie Barnes UNDER 4.5 Assists (-142 FanDuel)
Scottie is averaging 4.7 dimes per game, but this number has been on the lower end in his recent games. He has gone under 5 assists in 8 of his last 10 games.
His scoring numbers have gone up over this span, and it seems as though he feels the need to score more than get the rest of the team involved. Under here is our play.
SGP: James Harden 30+ Pts/Ast & Tobias Harris 14+ Points (-125)
Embiid will be sitting this one out once again, and that will inherently help both of our players in this SGP play. Harden has gone 6 straight games of 30 or more on this stat line.
Harris is averaging 16.5 points per game on the season. He was held to 13 in his last meeting with the Bulls, but that was with Embiid in the lineup.
We expect Harris to pick up the scoring without Embiid tonight and get over this number early in the 4th. This parlay is at DraftKings, and we think there’s good value in it, even at the minus juice.
