With nine exciting games scheduled for the NBA's Friday night, we're keeping an eye on some interesting props!
When the Philadelphia 76ers face the Miami Heat for the second time in three days, Tobias Harris will look to improve his production. For Devin Booker, his playmaking will be the focus when his Phoenix Suns take on the lowly Charlotte Hornets. And we'll be watching Marcus Smart's ability to contribute on the glass when the Cleveland Cavaliers face the Boston Celtics.
Let's check out the bets!
Tobias Harris wasn't particularly productive in his last game, and he'll look to bounce back on Wednesday night. At WynnBet, Harris is a +105 to hit at least two three-pointers when he faces the Miami Heat.
On the season, Harris is averaging 15.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 1.8 threes per game on 49.8% shooting from the field and 38.0% from three-point range. Over his last five games, Harris has averaged 13.0 points, 3.4 rebounds, 0.8 assists, and 2.2 threes on 57.1% shooting from the field and 50.0% from three-point range.
Despite not hitting a three in his most recent game, also against the Miami Heat, Harris has hit two or more threes in three of his last five matches. On the season, he's hit two or more home runs in 30 of his 56 appearances. After such a poor performance, we expect Harris to rebound in order to tie the season series against the Miami Heat.
The Phoenix Suns welcome Kevin Durant into the lineup, but Devin Booker's playmaking will be crucial to the team's success. At DraftKings Sportsbook, Booker is a +120 to clear 5.5 assists when he takes on the Charlotte Hornets.
On the season, Booker is averaging 26.5 points, 5.7 assists, and 4.6 rebounds on 47.3% shooting from the field and 34.7% from three-point range. Over his last five games since being inactive, Booker has averaged 24.2 points, 6.4 assists, and 4.4 rebounds on 45.8% shooting from the field and 22.2% from three-point range.
Through his last five games, Booker has recorded 5.5 assists in three games. On the season, he's cleared 5.5 assists in 16 of his 35 appearances. The Hornets are likely to set a fast tempo, and in order to fit Durant into the offense, we expect Booker to put on his playmaking hat. We're taking him to clear 5.5 assists for the fourth game in a row.
On the season, Smart is averaging 11.3 points, 6.8 assists, and 3.5 rebounds on 42.6% shooting from the field and 32.9% from three-point range. Through his last four games, Smart has averaged 13.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 3.5 assists on 46.5% shooting from the field and 28.6% from three-point range.
Over the span of his last four games since returning from injury, Smart has cleared 3.5 rebounds in three games. On the season, Smart has cleared 3.5 rebounds in 22 of his 45 games this season. With the Celtics and Cavaliers sporting gritty big men to battle on the glass, we expect Smart's support on the boards to be crucial to Boston's success as well as engaging enough to clear 3.5 on the night.
