It's Friday, May 7. Here is what the data is telling us for tonight's NBA player props โฌ


Pelicans @ 76ers

PLAYER: Joel Embiid

BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ OVER 29.5 points (-106)

It's an enticing cross-conference match up as Embiid and Zion slug it out like Ali and Frazier! 

While we usually love including the Prop King when we can, we're selecting Embiid to go over his points prop total tonight instead, with our projections putting the Sixers big man on 31 points. When a big ego like Joel's comes up against a young up and coming star of the league, we are rarely disappointed by what happens.

Celtics @ Bulls


PLAYER: Marcus Smart

BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ UNDER 13.5 points with FanDuel Sportsbook (-116)

Our projections for tonight's game has Smart as the fourth-rated scorer on this Celtics offense behind the likes of Tatum, Fournier and Kemba Walker. In a game against a superior team where the blowout factor is legitimate, Smart will struggle to make an impact on the scoreboard in this one.

Nuggets @ Jazz


PLAYER: Facundo Campazzo

BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ OVER 9.5 points with PointsBet (-102)

I know exactly what you're thinking right now. You're thinking: Who dat?

Ok, so it's time to talk about Facundo Campazzo. He is PG for the Denver Nuggets who has come over from Real Madrid in the Euroleague and lately he's kinda killing it. In four of his last five games he's scored 10 points or more in a clear indication that he has found a meaningful role in Denver's reshuffled offense since Jamal Murray's injury. Don't sleep on Facundo!

Knicks @ Suns


PLAYER: Mikal Bridges

BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ UNDER 3.5 rebounds BetMGM  (+118)

We're not leaving a lot of room for error on this one, but when DimersBOT projects something that translate to these kind of odds, we have to take a risk.

Our projections have Bridges getting only three rebounds total vs. the Knicks. In his last 10 games, he has only had 4 or more rebounds in three of them. The probabilities support the logic that +118 odds are just far too good to pass up.

To best use this pick, you can't go wrong when signing up to BetMGM where new customers you can cash in even if your bet doesn't win!

Simply deposit $20 into your account, place your bet, and then wait for the money to come in, regardless of the result! It's free money.
