Best NBA Prop Bets Today April 11 2024

Nikola Vucevic Under 12.5 Rebounds (-130) at FanDuel

The Chicago Bulls are locked into the Play-In Tournament and will face the Atlanta Hawks in the 9/10 game, meaning they’re playing for confidence and more momentum more than seeding. Vucevic scored 26 points on 75 percent shooting in his last game but went two straight games with five rebounds and cashed the under in three of his last five.

The 33-year-old is a capable rebounder but is about to face a Detroit Pistons team that, for all of its flaws, can rebound well. Jalen Duren is a beast on the boards, and the return of Cade Cunningham should ensure the offense creates better looks, makes more shots, and gives up fewer rebounding opportunities.

Jalen Brunson Over 6.5 Assists (-132) at FanDuel

Brunson was legitimately one of the 10 best players in the NBA this season. He went over his assist line in all five games this month, most recently posting eight against the Bulls, while also averaging 35.6 points during that stretch. His consistency despite being one of the most-blitzed players in the league is remarkable, especially considering his lack of size.

The New York Knicks are getting a tough test in the form of the East-leading Boston Celtics, but Brunson racked up nine assists the last time they played and has all of the momentum in the world. The C’s also have most of their lineup listed on the injury report, so they might not be at full strength.

Amen Thompson Under 14.5 Points (-104) at FanDuel

At 21 years old, Thompson has shown flashes of brilliance but not much overall consistency. He went under this line in five straight games and averaged just 9.2 points per game in his rookie campaign for a Houston Rockets team that has been eliminated from postseason contention.

The Utah Jazz have one of the worst defenses in the league and are typically friendly top opponents’ scoring props, but this is a tall ask for Thompson. He can’t shoot the three and isn’t a high-volume shot-taker, so it could be a struggle for him to hit 15 points, especially considering his low-scoring performances as of late.

Zion Williamson Under 26.5 Points (-120) at FanDuel

The former first-overall pick had a period where he was totally carrying the New Orleans Pelicans, but he’s been able to relax as of late due to the outstanding play of C.J. McCollum. He went under in three of his last five games and posted 22 points on 38.9 percent shooting against the Portland Trail Blazers his last time out.

For whatever reason, the matchup with Domantas Sabonis has been trouble for Williamson. He only managed 10 points in their most recent meeting and did not score more than 26.5 points in any of five career matchups, a trend he’ll have a tough time overcoming since the Sacramento Kings rank eighth in defensive efficiency over their last 10 games.

Trayce Jackson-Davis Over 7.5 Rebounds (-111) at FanDuel

The rookie second-round pick grew into his role as the year progressed, and he’s now playing a legit 25-plus minutes per night. He went under in back-to-back games but still went over in five of his last 10, highlighted by a 14-rebound performance against the Orlando Magic.

The Trail Blazers shoot the second-worst percentage from the field in the entire NBA and will give the Golden State Warriors plenty of opportunities to dominate the boards. There’s also a strong chance the Warriors control this game, which could allow Steve Kerr to play his young guys more minutes than usual.
