WSN is the place to get the best NBA player props and betting picks every day throughout the 2023-24 NBA season.
We went 4-1 with our picks yesterday, including a +200 hit on Karl-Anthony Towns 3+ threes. As teams return to regularly-scheduled programming from In-Season Tournament games yesterday, we’ve picked out a couple of players that we believe will stand out.
Here are our favorite NBA player prop picks for Wednesday.
Johnson was excellent on the glass to start the season but only claimed nine rebounds across his last two games. However, he will need to pay extra attention to cleaning the boards in Wednesday’s matchup against the New York Knicks, who lead the Association in rebounding percentage.
Johnson’s size and athleticism make him an effective rebounder under the basket and on long misses. He also played at least 31 minutes in all but one game this month and should spend enough time on the court against a Knicks team that struggles to shoot the ball to have a strong chance to go over his total.
Booker was electric in his two appearances this season, scoring 32 and 31 points. He hasn’t played since November 15 but also proved in his second game that time off didn’t affect his rhythm as he went on to put up 31 points, 13 assists, and nine rebounds on 52.6% shooting.
There may be concern about a diminished role and shot volume since Booker will share the court with Kevin Durant and Bradley Beal, but he’s the alpha of the team and showed in the playoffs a year ago that he won’t sacrifice volume for anyone.
LaVine only beat this total one time this season, weirdly, in a 51-point explosion in the third game of the year. He’s also facing an Orlando Magic squad that, last night aside, has been excellent defensively and still ranks sixth in average points allowed.
LaVine’s name has been one of several at the center of trade rumors, and we expect that to cloud his performances. He’s also shooting just 40.9% from the field and a career-worst 30.9% from outside, and now is not the time to bet the over on such a large number.
Tatum and the Boston Celtics have enjoyed a great deal of success against the Philadelphia 76ers in recent years but were defeated by their rivals 106-103 a week ago. Now, they’ll rematch back in the City of Brotherly Love, and we expect a big night from Tatum.
Not only did he drop a 16-point, 15-rebound double-double when they last met, but he also notched double-doubles in four of seven games this month and five of his last seven regular-season games against the 76ers. He’ll also have the added motivation of last week’s loss fresh in his mind.
Luka and the Dallas Mavericks couldn’t shoot a beach ball into the ocean against the New Orleans Pelicans last night, but that was a giant blip in the radar. The loss brought them to 8-3 on the year, while Luka’s 16 points dropped his season average all the way to 31.1 points, which is still ridiculous.
Luka scored 35+ three times this season and put up 41 the last time he played the Washington Wizards. The Wiz also allow the third-most points per game and don’t have anyone capable of giving Luka a good challenge on the perimeter.
