WSN is the place to get the best NBA player props and betting picks every day throughout the 2023-24 NBA season.

The Detroit Pistons shocked the world by beating a healthy Oklahoma City Thunder squad by 16 points to earn their sixth win of the season, while the Orlando Magic’s brilliant late-game defense earned them a much-needed victory over an ascending Phoenix Suns squad.

Here are our favorite NBA player prop picks for Monday.

Best NBA Prop Bets Today January 29

OG Anunoby Over 18.5 Points (-113) at FanDuel

The New York Knicks are 12-2 since Anunoby showed up in town. He averaged 15.6 points and 4.6 rebounds during those 14 games while playing 35.7 minutes per night, showing that he is a prominent member of the rotation.

With Julius Randle sidelined by a shoulder injury, Anunoby could easily see 40+ minutes here. He scored 19 and 26 points in his last two games and is taking on a Charlotte Hornets team that has the worst defensive rating in basketball. Watch for Charlotte to prioritize slowing down Jalen Brunson, freeing up Anunoby to boost his scoring average against a weak opponent.

Terry Rozier Over 3.5 Rebounds (+100) at FanDuel

Rozier has not brought his regular shooting touch with him in his first few games with the Miami Heat—however, he’s accepted more defensive responsibility and seems to be more engaged on the glass as he attempts to assimilate into the mold of a traditional Heat star. 

Rozier went over this line in two of three games with his new squad while playing 30 minutes per night. He also grabbed 4+ boards in four of his last six games overall and is about to face a Suns team that will force him to be locked in on both ends because of their scoring potential, which should actually benefit his rebounding numbers.

Head over to FanDuel Sportsbook to bet on our picks!

Rudy Gobert Over 13.5 Rebounds (+108) at FanDuel

Gobert is second in the league in rebounding (12.4 per game) and has a high line because of that. Regardless, he cashed the over in five of his last nine games and is facing a team in the Oklahoma City Thunder that is just 28th in rebound rate and 29th in defensive rebound percentage.

Gobert brought down 18 rebounds when the Minnesota Timberwolves played the Thunder on Sunday, January 20. He’s also two-for-three with overs in three matchups with OKC this season and won’t have to contend with another bruising big man since Chet Holmgren is one of the lightest centers in the league.

Nikola Jokic Over 36.5 Points+Assists (-120) at FanDuel

Jokic averaged 32.8 points and 7.4 assists over his last five games. He’s three-for-five on overs of this line during that span but has a matchup that should lead to him outperforming even this gaudy standard on Monday.

The Denver Nuggets are facing the Milwaukee Bucks, who are still just a few days removed from hiring Doc Rivers. One of the Bucks’ biggest struggles this season is their defense (19th in defensive rating), and there’s no player better at breaking down opposing teams than Jokic. He also went over this line in three of his last four meetings with Milwaukee and put up an 18/15/10 triple-double the one time he went under.

Kristaps Porzingis Over 26.5 Points+Rebounds (-104) at FanDuel

Porzingis is questionable for the Boston Celtics’ Monday night showdown with the New Orleans Pelicans. He hasn’t had an amazing month but went over this line in two of his last three outings and should be well-rested (if he does play) having been out since last Thursday.

The Pelicans are an outstanding defensive team but are going to be forced to start with Jonas Valanciunas guarding Porzingis. Not only is the former uncomfortable guarding players out on the perimeter, but he’s also one of the best rebounders on the team. This matchup suits Porzingis well overall.
