Here are 4 NBA props & a Same Game Parlay for January 13. Let’s add to our betting bankroll before the large weekend of NFL football. Best of luck with all your plays!
Killian Hayes OVER 13.5 Points
Best Available Odds: -115 at PointsBet
Hayes is averaging 15.2 points per game in the month of January. He has gone over this total in 5 of his last 8 games, which includes the 18 he dropped on Wednesday night against the Timberwolves.
He faced these same Pelicans back in early December, and he shot 8 of 17 to finish with 17 points. We believe he has another strong scoring game in him for tonight.
Jalen Brunson OVER 24.5 Points
Best Available Odds: -106 at FanDuel
We really wanted to fade Brunson in this spot, being that his season average is only at 21.9, but the month of January has seen a heavy scoring side of Brunson. He is averaging over 33 points per game and has exceeded this number in 4 of his 5 games.
On Monday, he went off for 44 points against the Bucks after scoring just 17 in his previous meeting with them. We are riding the hot hand here and playing him over until the wheels fall off.
Lauri Markkanen UNDER 8.5 Rebounds
Best Available Odds: -109 at Caesars
Markkanen pulled down a season-high 16 boards in his last game back on Tuesday against the Cavs. In his 4 previous games, he failed to go over this 8-rebound mark.
He faces the Magic tonight for the 1st time this season. Orlando is in the upper half in terms of rebounds allowed per game to the opposition. Look for the Magic to be able to limit Markkanen’s prowess on the glass.
CJ McCollum UNDER 5.5 Assists
Best Available Odds: +125 at DraftKings
McCollum has been held under 6 assists in back-to-back games while still averaging 5.8 per game on the season. He is likely due to drop a good number of dimes tonight, but the value at +125 here is driving us in the other direction.
He finished with only 4 in his previous meeting with the Pistons, and we think the same can happen tonight. Take the plus-money under!
SGP: Points/Reb/Ast: Jokic 45+ & Kawhi 30+
Jokic is averaging over 45 on this stat combo. He finished with 48 on Wednesday against the Suns. He was held to his worst total against these Clippers on the 15th, where he finished with 12/6/9. We believe he will look to prove that was a fluke.
Kawhi is coming off back-to-back games well over this total. Against Atlanta, he went for 40 total and 46 Tuesday against the Mavs. We see both of these stars having pretty big nights, so we don’t mind paying the -135 price on this over at DraftKings.
