It's Friday, April 16- and here is what the data is telling us for tonight's NBA player props ⏬


Pelicans @ Wizards


PLAYER: Zion Williamson

BET:🔥 OVER 42.5 points+rebounds+assists with PointsBet (-115)

The Prop King is back at the top of our picks, but this time we're looking for more than points! Zion has been in unbelievable form of late and coming up against the defensively-lacking Washington Wizards, he could be in for an absolute stat-sheet-stuffer of a game.

He's been upping his rebounds and assists of late and with 30 points basically in the bank already, this multi-stat bet looks like great value. If your sportsbook is offering up Zion to get his first career triple double, that could also be worth some pizza money!

Nuggets @ Rockets


PLAYER: Christian Wood

BET:🔥 OVER 8.5 rebounds with FanDuel Sportsbook (+100)

Christian Wood was the frontrunner for the Most Improved Player award at the start of the season before being struck down by injury, but now that he's back, he's been a great bet for us prop hunters!

Tonight against the Denver Nuggets, his line for rebounds is just 8.5, whereas our model has him dragging it down 10 times. To add confidence to your bet, his last two games have seen him record 13 and 15 boards!

Grizzlies @ Bulls


PLAYER: Jonas Valančiūnas

BET:🔥 OVER 12.5 rebounds with PointsBet (-120)

The Lithuanian beast has been absolutely dominant of late, especially on the boards, with his recent rebound numbers reading as follows: 15, 14, 22(!!), 14, 11, 10, 12, 11, 14 and 15!

Even against an tough opponent in Vucevic, our model has Jonas keeping up this form, projecting him to post 16 rebounds tonight.

Knicks @ Mavericks


PLAYER: RJ Barrett

BET:🔥 OVER 16.5 points with BetMGM  (-115)

We're backing RJ to bounce back tonight after his last two games have seen him put a combined 4-21 from the field for a total of just 13 points.

He's been really good this year, and in a game that should see plenty of scoring on both ends, we've got RJ bouncing back to put up around 19 points.
