The Milwaukee Bucks dropped to 1-4 in Doc Rivers’ tenure as they fell to the Phoenix Suns on the road (and let Kevin Durant, Devin Booker, and Bradley Beal all score 25+), while the Chicago Bulls unexpectedly took down the Minnesota Timberwolves in overtime.
Here are our favorite NBA player prop picks for Wednesday.
Quickley didn’t come close to this line in his last game, a blowout loss to the New Orleans Pelicans, but went over in three of four games just before that. He’s been much more productive as a rebounder and playmaker in Toronto compared to his time in New York and will be fresh since he only played 24 minutes on Monday,
The Raptors are facing the Charlotte Hornets, who give up the sixth-most points and fourth-most assists per game. It’s rare that the Raptors face a team that’s as terrible as they are on defense, and we’re looking for Quickley to take full advantage of that on Wednesday.
Herro hasn’t scored 20 points in eight games, yet he beat this line in five games during that stretch (and four of his last six outings), He’s shooting a career-best 40.3% from beyond the arc for the year to go with 8.2 attempts per game, which is more than enough volume for him to get over this line.
Herro and the Miami Heat are facing the San Antonio Spurs, who are only 26th in three-point percentage allowed to opponents (38.3%). He did not feature in the Heat’s last game against the Spurs but still has a distinct advantage because of the matchup.
Klay averaged 10.7 points in three games to start the month and only managed eight points in his last game against the Brooklyn Nets. He also did not feature in the closing lineup in a couple of the Golden State Warriors’ recent games and isn’t a guarantee to get minutes down the stretch, which makes him less likely to hit his total.
Klay admitted that he’s struggling mentally and to get his shot to fall on the court, which has created frustration and played a major part in the Warriors’ decline. He won’t find it any easier against a Philadelphia 76ers team that holds opponents to the third-lowest three-point percentage and has long wings to contest his shots.
Cade did not hit this line in three straight games, though he faced great to outstanding defenses in all of those games. On Wednesday, he’ll face the Sacramento Kings, who rank 20th in points allowed and assists surrendered per game and are also relatively poor at home, considering their record.
The Pistons are still struggling to win games, but this is arguably the best they looked all year. Cade put up 20 points and 12 assists against the Washington Wizards that last time he didn’t face an elite defense and went on a ridiculous scoring streak at the end of 2023 and the beginning of 2024, and we trust him to rekindle that form.
Young beat this total in six straight games, averaged 27.3 points per game, and hung 33 on the Boston Celtics the only other time he faced them this season (back on Nov. 26). He was recently selected to go to the All-Star Game as an injury replacement and should carry that good feeling into Wednesday’s matchup.
The 25-year-old is at the center of everything Atlanta does and won’t be shy about going against Boston’s elite defense. He’s also shooting 61.5% from the field and 58.6% from three in three games in February, making this the wrong time to bet against him.
