Best Underdog NBA Prop Picks for Thursday, February 1: Let’s Jump On 4 Overs!
While LeBron is on triple-double watch against Boston tonight, look to the Cavs/Grizzlies matchup to bet on two young standouts who should be able to score with ease. Ready to cash in with Underdog Fantasy tonight?
Check out our best NBA player prop picks for Thursday, February 1. Good luck!
F LeBron James (LAL) OVER 6.5 REB
LeBron always seems to perform against their cross-country rival, averaging over 30 points and 9 boards per game against the C’s in the last two seasons. With Boston coming in as heavy favorites, LeBron’s rebound prop is a must add to your Thursday slate.
The Lakers forward is averaging over 7 boards in the month of January and with Boston taking the most 3-pointers per game in the entire league, expect plenty of rebounding opportunities on a night where a triple-double isn’t out of the picture for one of the goats.
C Evan Mobley (CLE) OVER 16.5 PTS+REB
While Mobley’s PTS+AST prop is one to keep an eye on, we like Evan to have a dominant performance today against a Memphis team that will chuck up 3s to try and upset the Cavs.
While on a minute restriction in January, Mobley is too good of a talent to bet the under on a drop that he could potentially hit in the first half if Mitchell and Garland look his way for opportunities down low.
F Vince Williams Jr. (MEM) OVER 13.5 PTS
Sticking with this game, someone has to score points for this Memphis team, and why not standout sophomore talent Vince Williams Jr. A fan favorite during the last draft cycle, Williams is coming into his own for the banged-up Grizzlies.
He’s averaging nearly 15 PPG and 7 boards per game in the month of January. With this game most likely hitting the over, expect Williams to lead the Grizzlies in 3PA, minutes, and easily hit his over in a plus-matchup against the Cavs’ wings.
F Tobias Harris (PHI) OVER 1.5 3PM
With Embiid out on Thursday, look for Tobias Harris to carry the offensive load for Philly, as the race to 120 will be on against Utah tonight.
Although Harris has only hit this mark in three of ten games without Joel this season, the Jazz are bottom five in 3PT% allowed this season and bottom three in 3PM per contest. Look for Harris to have a monster night from downtown.
