To kick things off late-night tonight [10PM EST] we will be seeing the New Orleans Pelicans taking on the Phoenix Suns. Both teams are sitting at 2-1 and have shown early signs of promise. Lonzo Ball [O/U 12.5 Points] leads the way for this young Pelicans team. In three games this season, Lonzo has hit the over on his player prop betting line twice, both times the Pelicans have won. Brandon Ingram [O/U 22.5 Points] has REALLY found his scoring touch, hitting the over on his player prop betting line in all three games, averaging 26.7 PPG. Zion Williamson [O/U 8.5 Rebounds] leads the way for the Pelicans on the boards. Zion, like Ingram, has hit the over on his player prop betting line in all three games. Devin Booker [O/U 25.5 Points] has yet to find his true scoring touch and has only hit the over on his prop betting line in just one of the three games this season. DeAndre Ayton [O/U 16.5 Points] has started the season slowly, hitting the under on his player prop betting line in each of the Sun’s three games. Veteran PG Chris Paul [O/U 6.5 Assists] closes out this Sun’s team. CP3 had an off night in the first game of the season, where he hit the under on prop betting line while finishing with just 5 dimes. In the two games since, Chris Paul has recorded 12 assists in both games while hitting the over on his prop betting line in both. The Pelicans have had a very strong start to the season while the Suns are up-and-coming and have yet to find their true scoring touch.
The second game in the West that we’re looking at is the Denver Nuggets @ Sacramento Kings. Nikola Jokic [O/U 8.5 Assists] leads the way for this young Nuggets. The big man from Serbia has been dishing the ball tremendously while hitting the over on his prop betting line in each of the last three games, averaging 14.0 in the three games. Jamal Murray [O/U 20.5 Points] joins Jokic in this Nuggets core. Murray had a slow start to the season where he finished with a mere 9 points in an OT loss to the Kings. Since that game, Jamal Murray has hit the over in both games he has played in. Michael Porter Jr. [O/U 1.5 Three-Pointers Made] closes out this young Nuggets team. MPJ has been shooting the ball well to start the year and has hit the over on his prop betting line in all three games. On the other side of the ball, we have De’Aaron Fox [O/U 7.5 Assists] leading the Kings’ way. Fox has been scoring the ball well, but the same cannot be said of his ball distribution. De’Aaron Fox has hit the under in assists on his player prop betting line in all three games. Buddy Hield [O/U 20.5 Points] has only hit the over on his prop betting line on one occasion. That one game where Hield hit the over on his player prop betting line was against the Nuggets, so watch out tonight. Closing out this Kings team is another talented young player in Marvin Bagley III [O/U 14.5 Points.] Bagley has yet to find his scoring touch this season as he has hit the under in points on his player prop betting line in all three games. Both teams in the Nuggets and Kings have been led by strong young cores and will only be getting better down the line.
