We are looking at three great NBA games to kick off the second Tuesday of the New Year here at NHA. The first game we are focusing on tonight’s between the Denver Nuggets @ Brooklyn Nets. The home team Nets are still dealing with an absent Kyrie Irving, so that the Nets will be led by Kevin Durant [O/U 28.5 Points] tonight. Durant has played well in Kyrie’s absence, scoring 36 points this past Sunday against OKC, hitting the over on his prop betting line. 6-man of the year candidate Caris LeVert [O/U 17.5 Points] has also really been stepping up with Irving being out. Caris LeVert has hit the over on his prop betting line in each of the last four games. Closing out this Brooklyn Nets team is their young center, Jared Allen [8.5 Rebounds.] Allen has been fighting with DeAndre Jordan for the starting center position on this Nets team. As of late, Allen has been earning that spot, hitting the over in rebounds on his prop betting line in four of the last five games. On the other side of the ball, leading the Denver Nuggets is their strong-young duo in Nikola Jokic [O/U 24.5 Points] and Jamal Murray [O/U 22.5 Points.] This duo has been playing rather inconsistent as of late. Nikola Jokic leads the way, hitting the over in points on his prop betting line in two of the last four games. This seems great compared to Jamal Murray and the fact that Murray has hit the under on his prop betting line in each of the last four games. If Denver wants to beat the depleted Nets tonight, their marquee duo must perform to their standard.
The second game of the night we are looking at is between the Los Angeles Lakers @ Houston Rockets. The visiting Lakers are led by their king, LeBron James [O/U 25.5 Points.] LeBron had a slow start to the season on the offensive end but has really managed to have picked things up recently, hitting the over on his prop betting line in three of the last four games he’s played in. Joining LeBron is Anthony Davis [O/U 27.5 Points], who started the year incredibly strong but now finds himself in a slump. Davis has hit the under on his prop betting line in each of the last four games. Joining Anthony Davis in this slump is newly-acquired PG Dennis Schroder [O/U 16.5 Points.] Schroder is rightfully more known for his defensive abilities as he has hit the under on his prop betting line for points in five of the last six games. On the other side of the ball leading the Houston Rockets is James Harden [O/U 33.5 Points], who has also been tremendously underperforming as of late. Harden has hit the under in points on his player prop betting line in each of the last four games he has played in. The same cannot be said of Harden’s Christian Wood [O/U 19.5 Points.] Christian Wood seems to be an early favorite for the league’s Most Improved Player Award, and with the way he has been playing, it is not much of a shock. Christian Wood has hit the over in points on his player prop betting line in all seven games he has played in this season!
Closing out the night, we are going all the way to the West Coast in a matchup that features the Indiana Pacers taking on the Golden State Warriors. The visiting Pacers are led by an outstanding player who is really coming into his own in this league in Domantas Sabonis [O/U 20.5 Points.] Sabonis has been playing incredibly as of late and has been doing a great job carrying all the weight his father’s legacy has left behind, hitting the over on his prop betting line in each of the last three games. Joining Sabonis is Malcolm Brogdon [O/U 18.5 Points], whose play is also exceeding exceptions and is starting to become one of the more underrated players in this league. Brogdon has hit the over in points on his prop betting line in each of the last five games. Closing this Pacers team is someone that has to step up their play, in Big-Man Myles Turner [O/U 7.5 Rebounds.] Turner has done a solid job of scoring the ball but has been rather weak around the room, hitting under in rebounds on his prop betting line in eight of the last nine games. The hometown Warriors are led by the top shooter of this generation in Stephen Curry [O/U 3.5 Three-Pointers Made.] Curry has been playing very well this season, making the most out of this injury-plagued Warriors season. Curry is entering this game coming off of his career’s worst shooting performance when he shot 1-10 from the 3-Point line while hitting the under on his prop betting line. Curry is more than due for a big game shooting tonight and can easily hit the over on his prop betting line. Joining Curry is Draymond Green [O/U 9.5 Points], who has been dealing with injuries all year long. Green has participated in six games so far this season and has hit the under on his prop betting line in five of them. Closing out the Warriors is swingman Andrew Wiggins [O/U 1.5 Three-Pointers Made.] Wiggins has managed to find his game in Golden State as he has hit the over in each of the last 4 games.
