Best NBA Prop Bets Today March 22 2024

Zion Williamson Over 6.5 Rebounds (-120) at FanDuel

Zion looks healthy and explosive, and he’s a major reason why the New Orleans Pelicans are only 1.5 games behind the Los Angeles Clippers for the fourth seed in the Western Conference. The burly 23-year-old only grabbed seven boards his last time out and went over this line in five straight and seven of his last eight games.

The Pels are preparing to take on the Miami Heat, who rank 24th in rebound rate since the All-Star break. Bam Adebayo does a great job on the boards, but Zion’s recent commitment to the glass combined with the heightened stakes and New Orleans being a tremendous road team are enough reason to back him.

Mike Conley Over 10.5 Points (-120) at FanDuel

Conley scored 13 points in his last game and went over this total in three of his last four, including 23 and 25-point outings. He is one of several players who have to pick up the scoring slack in the absence of Karl-Anthony Towns, who is still out with a meniscus injury.

Conley, at the ripe age of 36, is shooting 42.6 percent from beyond the arc and is one of the most efficient players when it comes to assist-to-turnover ratio. He and the Minnesota Timberwolves are taking on the Cleveland Cavaliers who have a great defense but are just 16th in defensive rating since the All-Star break.

Jaren Jackson Jr. Under 25.5 Points (-113) FanDuel

Jackson Jr. scored 28 points in his last game but went under this total in four straight games before that. He also averages 22.5 points for the year and 23.2 points in March and is starting to lose shots to rookie GG Jackson, who averaged 25.2 points over his last six games.

Jackson Jr. is about to take on the test that is San Antonio Spurs rookie Victor Wembanyama, who is already one of the most impactful defenders in basketball at just 20 years old. The San Antonio Spurs as a whole are not a strong defensive team, but Wemby is a terrible matchup that will block shots and dissuade Jackson Jr. from putting the ball up as much as he normally does.

Traye Jackson-Davis Over 6.5 Rebounds (-122) FanDuel

Jackson-Davis didn’t get on the court much early in the season, but he averaged 22.2 minutes in March and played at least 24 in all but one of his last six outings. He rewarded Steve Kerr’s faith in him by averaging 12.7 points and seven rebounds during that span, an impressive return for a second-round rookie.

With the Golden State Warriors set to take on the Indiana Pacers, Jackson-Davis has an opportunity to boost his average against a team that doesn’t rebound well and plays at a fast pace and puts up a ton of shots. He only managed five boards in his last game but still went over this line in three of his last five and is becoming an increasingly important member of the Dubs’ rotation.

LeBron James Under 25.5 Points (-108) FanDuel

LeBron often picks and chooses his spots. Although he has been electric as a scorer recently, averaging 28.3 points over his last 11 games, he also has the support of a team and an offense that is third in efficiency and second in three-point percentage (40.9) since the All-Star break, which takes some of the pressure off of his shoulders.

The Los Angeles Lakers are taking on the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night, a team that held opponents to the third-lowest scoring output (104.3 per game) and third-lowest field goal percentage over the last 10 games. They have put enough on tape recently to suggest they can slow this team down a little, but LeBron also won’t need to be in takeover mode.
