It's Saturday, April 17. Here is what the data is telling us for tonight's NBA player props ⏬


Cavaliers @ Bulls


PLAYER: Nikola Vucevic

BET:🔥 OVER 35.5 points+rebounds with PointsBet (-118)

If we've learnt anything from bringing our daily prop plays to you it's this: Always ride the man with the hot hand!

Vooch is scoring and cleaning up the glass at a very high level with three double doubles in his last three games. We're expecting that trend to continue again against a Cavs team where the game should go down to the wire.

Warriors @ Celtics


PLAYER: Steph Curry

BET:🔥 OVER 32.5 points with FanDuel Sportsbook (-120)

Do we really need to explain this one? Ok, if we must.

Steph Curry is playing at a historic level right now, even for him. The Warriors guard has scored 30+ in nine straight games - a feat not seen by a Golden State player since the 1970s. With the scoring title now firmly in Chef Curry's sights, we're expecting more points against the Celts.

Grizzlies @ Bucks


PLAYER: Giannis Antetokounmpo 

BET:🔥 UNDER 25.5 points with PointsBet (-106)

After a long injury layoff, Giannis returned on Thursday night against the Hawks on a restriction of 25 minutes. Against one of the weaker sides in the league in Memphis, it's hard to see the Bucks pushing the Greek Freak too hard in this one, so expect a similar restriction which will impact the production.

Spurs @ Suns


PLAYER: Devin Booker

BET:🔥 OVER 4.5 rebounds with BetMGM  (+122)

Booker is known for his scoring, but he can rebound the ball. In recent games he's racked up games of 6 and 7 rebounds, and our data sees an opportunity to cash in on Book at big odds against a Spurs team who rank third-last for opposition rebounds per game.
