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

There’s still a three-way race for first place in the Western Conference as the Minnesota Timberwolves, Denver Nuggets, and Oklahoma City Thunder are just one game apart with just about a week left in the regular season. 

Meanwhile, seeds 3-8 in the Eastern Conference are separated by three games, leaving the playoff picture highly volatile with barely any games remaining. 

Here are our favorite NBA player prop picks for Tuesday.

FanDuel Sportsbook Promo for Tuesday, April 9

Kyrie Irving Over 25.5 Points (-108) at FanDuel Sportsbook

“Ramadan Kyrie” is a problem. At 32, he’s having one of the best seasons of his career, scoring 25.8 points per night on 50/41/91 shooting splits for a Dallas Mavericks team that has won 14 of its last 16. He also went over this total in four straight games and just dropped 48 against the Houston Rockets on Sunday.

Irving averaged 26.1 points and 5.3 assists since the start of the Mavericks’ recent hot streak and is shooting 52.4 from the field in April. Meanwhile, the Charlotte Hornets allowed the most points per 100 possessions over their last 10 games and will provide very little resistance for one of the game’s most skilled players.

Giannis Antetokunmpo Over 27.5 Points (-111) at FanDuel Sportsbook

This is a plant the flag game for the Greek Freak. The Milwaukee Bucks lost six of their last seven games, including three to lottery-stricken teams, and are now only one game ahead of the third-place Orlando Magic in the conference ladder. As the best player on the team, it’s Giannis’ duty to ensure that his team goes down swinging, if not beats the Boston Celtics.

For all of the team’s struggles, the two-time NBA MVP has not missed a beat as of late, beating this total in 10 of his last 12 outings. That said, he went under in both meetings with the C’s this season, so he’ll have to produce his best effort of the year against this opponent.

Tre Jones Over 4.5 Rebounds (+106) at FanDuel Sportsbook

Jones is listed at just 6-foot-1, but he’s been great on the boards recently. The former Duke product snatched eight rebounds against the Philadelphia 76ers his last time out and 12 two games before that, helping him go over this line in three of his last four games. That’s despite averaging 3.6 rebounds for the year, which shows a recent increase in focus on rebounding.

The San Antonio Spurs are facing the Memphis Grizzlies, who actually rank 10th in rebound rate over the last 10 games-however, they don’t have any great individual rebounders and are one of the worst shooting teams in the league, which means more rebounding opportunities will be available than they would be otherwise.

LeBron James Over 8.5 Assists (-138) at FanDuel Sportsbook

LeBron has been transparent about the little time he has left in his career, but a glimpse at his recent numbers wouldn’t lead anyone to believe that. At 39, he hit the over on this line in three straight and 14 of his last 19 games. He also went over in both meetings with the Golden State Warriors, most recently on March 16.

No player in the sport has more experience facing and dissecting the Warriors’ defense, which is why LeBron is a solid bet in this spot. He also has the benefit of being around a Los Angeles Lakers squad that ranks fifth in offensive efficiency and shot the second-best three-point percentage in the league since the All-Star break.

Taylor Hendricks Over 1.5 Threes (+104) at FanDuel Sportsbook

Hendricks is playing more than 25 minutes per game as of the last month and played himself into consideration with strong rebounding and shooting. Through three games in April, the 20-year-old made 2.7 threes per game while shooting 61.5 percent from beyond the arc.

Although that standard won’t hold, Hendricks beat his line in five of six games and is shooting the ball with confidence now that he has a real rhythm. The Utah Jazz are facing a Denver Nuggets squad that desperately needs a win, but Hendricks will be much lower on the priority list than some of his teammates.
