It's Friday, April 9 and here is what the data is telling us for tonight's NBA player props ⏬


Wolves @ Celtics


PLAYER: Anthony Edwards

BET:🔥 OVER 21.5 points with William Hill Sportsbook (-120)

Our first player prop pick of the night is rookie of the year favorite, Anthony Edwards, to go OVER 21.5 points, as the Minnesota Timberwolves take on the Boston Celtics.

Edwards has gone past 21.5 points in seven of his last eight games, with the one game that he fell short seeing him score 19 points.

For a play like this, it's hard to look past this offer from William Hill Sportsbook who are giving new customers in certain states a RISK-FREE bet up to $2021 - see if your state is one of them here. Basically, you can deposit as much or as little as you like (we recommend around $50) and then place your bet on the o5.5. If he reaches OVER 21.5 points, you cash in! If not, that's okay - they'll give you your money back to use again on another bet.

Grizzlies @ Knicks


PLAYER: RJ Barrett

BET:🔥 OVER 16.5 points with FanDuel Sportsbook (-118)

RJ's season average is 17.5 at the moment, with nine of his last twelve going above that average. 

The Memphis Grizzlies are prone to a shootout and if that happens against the New York Knicks, RJ Barrett could have another very big game.

Bulls @ Hawks


PLAYER: Zach LaVine

BET:🔥 OVER 23.5 points with PointsBet (-120)

Zach LaVine is averaging over 27 points a game for the Chicago Bulls this season and with his line set at just 23.5 tonight, it's hard to not bet on him.

The Hawks don't have a host of great defenders and with LaVine's ability to score in multiple ways, he could potentially go wayyyy over the 23.5.

Rockets @ Clippers


PLAYER: Kevin Porter Jr.

BET:🔥 OVER 22.5 points+rebounds+assists with FanDuel Sportsbook (-115)

Ever since being drafted by the Cavs, KPJ has shown flashes of superstardom and as a ball handler that can do it all, the line of 22.5 being set for his P+R+A looks great.
