Best NBA Prop Bets Today March 29 2024

James Harden Under 15.5 Points (-130) at FanDuel

Harden scored 16 points in 39 minutes against the Philadelphia 76ers in a game the Los Angeles Clippers were extremely lucky to win on Wednesday. He went under this line in seven of his last nine games as the Clippers continue to struggle to find the form they displayed in the middle of the season.

While LA needs to take a hard look in the mirror, they won’t find their next task any easier as they are scheduled to face the Orlando Magic, who allowed the fourth-fewest points per 100 possessions over the last 10 games. Expect Harden to have another slow night against the tight perimeter defense of the Magic guards and as his struggles continue.

Rui Hachimura 6+ Rebounds (+240) at FanDuel

Hachimura stepped into a larger role, spelling for LeBron James on Tuesday and then for Anthony Davis on Wednesday, and wound up with 14 and 10 rebounds across those games. Although he still averaged just 4.9 rebounds for the month and both James and Davis are back, he has a solid chance of cashing this line.

Hachimura was just one rebound away from this total when he played the Indiana Pacers last Sunday and also hit the over in three of his last four outings. Indy also ranks 24th in opponents’ rebounds per game since the All-Star break and plays at a frenetic pace, which should give LA’s forward plenty of opportunities.

Jusuf Nurkic Over 10.5 Rebounds (-130) at FanDuel

Nurkic nearly hit the over three times in a single game the last time he played the Oklahoma City Thunder as he came up with 31 boards in 32 minutes. He also grabbed double-digit boards in 12 of his last 15 games and still managed 19 rebounds in his last two games despite playing 41 combined minutes.

OKC’s lack of size and interior presence is what separates it from being a true championship contender, and Nurkic has been one of several to exploit that weakness. Although he is questionable with an ankle issue, it’s worth looking at his over if he’s able to suit up on Friday.

Victor Wembanyama Under 9.5 Rebounds (+102) at FanDuel

Wemby, at 7-foot-4, is always a threat to dominate the boards. He averaged 11.1 rebounds in March and, despite going under in back-to-back games, still cashed the over on this line in seven of 10 games this month. So why are we looking at his under here, you might ask?

The New York Knicks are a rugged, physical team that allowed the second-fewest rebounds per game to opponents since the All-Star break. They also just got Mitchell Robinson back from a long-term injury, and his size and especially his physicality will be deterrents for Wemby. Isaiah Hartenstein off the bench is also a tremendous rebounder, and both have the type of strength that he hasn’t figured out how to deal with just yet.

Naz Reid Over 15.5 Points (-128) at FanDuel

Where would the Minnesota Timberwolves be without Naz Reid, especially ever since Karl-Anthony Towns’ injury? The 24-year-old averaged 17.4 points on 42.5 percent three-point shooting in March and scored 17+ points in five straight games, setting him on a great course ahead of Friday’s matchup with the Denver Nuggets.

While Denver operates at a slow pace and plays tight defense, Reid already beat this total in his only matchup with the reigning champs. He’s also a threat to space the floor and can create matchup advantages against the Nuggets’ personnel.
