NBA Selected Player Prop Bets for January 13th

Last night I absolutely murdered these prop bets, going 8 for 9 and bringing my weekly total up to 12 right, 5 incorrect.  There’s a thin schedule of games on tap for tonight, but still some good lines for the prop bets, so here’s tonight’s prop bets taken from Bodog.  4 unders, and 2 overs.

Kevin Durant shouldn't have a problem getting things cooking against Turkoglu

Nick Young over/under 20.5 pts vs MIN

OVER.  Yeah, I know he wont score 43 every game, but coming off a game like that, when the line is less than half his previous game’s output, it’s definitely a good over.  It’s not just that 43 point game either.  In the previous four games he scored 21+ two times and presumably he gets 40+ minutes again tonight which will give him a great shot at going over 20.5

Kevin Love over/under 22.5 pts vs WAS

OVER.  Love has scored 23 or more in 3 of his last 6 games, but two of those three games were 30+ point games and Washington isn’t tough on the interior, which means a lot of put backs for Love.

Kevin Love over/under 16.5 rebs vs WAS

OVER.  He’s had 17 or more boards in 5 of his last 6 games and had a 20-20 game against a much tougher interior defense in the Spurs.  16.5 is 0.7 above his season average, but given his recent play it’s a very good ‘over.’

Hedo Turkoglu over/under 13 pts vs OKC

UNDER.  Hedo has scored 13 or less in all 5 of his last 5 games, but that isn’t the real reason I am going with an under on this.  The Magic played last night and he’ll be on the road in this second leg of a back to back…and he’ll be chasing Durant around all night leaving him with less energy to expend on offense.

Kevin Durant over/under 29 pts vs ORL

OVER.  Orlando is a tough defensive team, but without Mikael Pietrus and Matt Barnes, both of whom are no longer with the Magic, Durant should have his way on offense.  Turkoglu isn’t a bad defender, it’s just that he’s not a particularly good one either and Durant’s game relies on a lot of midrange shots meaning he won’t necessarily have to contend with Dwight Howard in the paint.

Dwight Howard over/under 35.5 pts+rebs vs OKC

UNDER.  Dwight played heavy minutes in the overtime loss to the Hornets last night and Ibaka will provide enough resistance to keep him from having another 20-20 game like he did last night.  While I never do doubt Dwight’s ability to deliver in big games, he’s just not going to have the vigor to do it tonight.
