It’s Friday night which gives us an opportunity to make more money placing winning player prop wagers. We have a nice slate tonight with plenty of opportunities to make good bets.
Let’s take a look at tonight’s action to find more winning NBA picks.
New York Knicks vs. Golden State Warriors
Friday, November 18, 2022 – 10:00 PM EST at Chase Center
Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors)
- Over 29.5 Points
The Golden State Warriors are in trouble, losing yet another game to the Phoenix Suns on national TV on Wednesday night. This team plays much better at home and will use tonight as an opportunity to get back on track. They face the New York Knicks. The Knicks were known for their defense but, as of late, the defense has been slipping and they've become a more offensive-oriented team.
With Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole both struggling to start the year, Steph Curry has been the engine behind the Warriors' offense. Curry is averaging 32.8 points per game this year and is coming off a 50-point performance in Phoenix. Curry knows that he is the only one that can keep this team from falling further in the standings.
The New York Knicks will struggle to defend Curry on the perimeter. Neither Jalen Brunson, Derrick Rose, nor RJ Barrett is particularly strong on the perimeter, and the Warriors will hunt these players on switches.
Curry's unbelievable jump shooting means that he can put up a huge number of points without drawing a lot of contact from his opponents, which allows him to stay fresh during the whole game. Curry will attack these weaker Knicks perimeter defenders to exploit their weaknesses and have another big night.
The Warriors are a proud team and they are so much better at home. This will be on display tonight and Steph Curry will lead the way.
Denver Nuggets vs. Dallas Mavericks
Friday, November 18, 2022 - 08:30 PM EST at American Airlines Center
Luka Doncic (Dallas Mavericks)
- Under 32.5 Points
Luka Doncic has been absolutely fantastic this year, but he was shaken up in the last game that he played, a win over the Los Angeles Clippers. Doncic sat out the next game but will return tonight. Luka will be in action, but there should be a greater emphasis on getting his teammates involved.
Luka has already mentioned that the fatigue from carrying the team's offense has worn him down early in the season. The Mavericks and Coach Jason Kidd will be looking to find more ways to attack the basket without using Luka every single play.
Luka Doncic is a serious MVP candidate and he will put up plenty of big stat lines this season. But coming off of a game where he wrestled with an injury, he might want to take it easy and have fewer minutes tonight.
The Prop Pick
Our second player prop for tonight is Luka Doncic Under 32.5 points.
NBA Prop Pick: Luka Doncic Under 32.5 Points (-124) at BetOnline
Miami Heat vs. Washington Wizards
Friday, November 18, 2022 - 07:00 PM EST at Capital One Arena
Kristaps Porzingis (Washington Wizards)
- Over 20.5 Points
Kristaps Porzingis has been the best player on the Wizards so far this season. Bradley Beal is a good player, but the engine of the offense has been turned over to Kristaps Porzingis. Porzingis's size and length will be an issue tonight for a Miami Heat team that is small in the frontcourt.
This is the healthiest that Porzingis has been for a while and his skills are finally on display. Porzingis has excellent post moves, but he also has the range to hit from the outside. So, if you put a smaller player on him, he can either shoot over him or work him in the post.
The emergence of Porzingis has been a boon for the Washington Wizards season. If Kristaps Porzingis continues to play like this, the Wizards have a great chance to make the playoffs for the first time in years.
The pairing of Porzingis and Bradley Beal has made the Wizards a potent offensive team. I expect Porzingis to once again carry the burden of the scoring expectations tonight and should go Over his point total.
The Prop Pick
Following the NBA odds, our final prop for tonight's NBA slate is Kristaps Porzingis Over 20.5 points.
NBA Prop Pick: Kristaps Porzingis Over 20.5 Points (-107) at BetOnline
