Top NBA Player Prop Bets for Monday, March 14th, 2022
Welcome back for another great week of NBA player props. Today we have 4 more great bets to place for today’s 9 game slate.
We will be trying to capitalize on great odds, matchups, and recent player performances to hit our bets. There are some pretty interesting games for today as well.
The Bucks will take on the Jazz in a top level interconference showdown. There are also the leading MVP candidates going head to head in Joel Embiid and Nikola Jokic.
Let’s get right into the best player prop bets to place for today’s NBA action with odds from BetOnline.
Kyle Kuzma Under 29.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists (-112)
I am not a fan of Kyle Kuzma tonight against the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors have not been kind to opposing forwards this year.
Kuzma has been great recently for the Wizards, but Kristaps Porzingis should take some touches away from him in this game. Not only that, the Warriors are getting the long awaited return of Draymond Green.
His rebounding numbers haven’t been wildly impressive recently either, making for a perfect under P+R+A bet for this game.
Kuzma should make this a close battle, but the Warriors should be able to slow him down considerably. It will be interesting to see how many minutes Draymond gets, but his impact is massive for them defensively.
Kuzma and Porzingis have played pretty decently together in Porzinigs’ first three games as a Wizard. In Kuzma’s 3 games alongside Porzingis, he’s averaged 21 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists.
It is a small sample size, but that makes for 32 P+R+A per game. That means we only need 3 less of one of those categories for those to hit. I am expecting a worse game specifically scoring and assisting to help the under win this bet.

Karl-Anthony Towns Over 40 P+R+A (-143)
Someone I do like to have a big night tonight is Karl-Anthony Towns from the Timberwolves. Towns is coming off a tough game against one of the best defensive teams in the Heat and centers in Bam Adebayo.
He got in foul trouble as well and only ended up playing 25 total minutes in that game. He finished with just 15 points and 10 rebounds, so I am expecting a big bounceback game.
Towns and the Wolves already played the Spurs once this season. The big man went for 25 points, 12 rebounds, and 5 assists and led them to a 25 point win. That stat line was good for 42 P+R+A, which would hit the over set for this game.
Patrick Beverly and Anthony Edwards are game time decisions for this game. That could make Minnesota rely a little more heavily on Towns, even if they suit up or not.
I am not expecting the assists category to be the main contributor for Towns, but he got 5 in their last game against the Spurs and has 4+ in 3 out of his last 5 games. Overall, he should be in for a solid all around night and hit the over.
De’Aaron Fox Over 35.5 P+R+A (-112)
Another player I like to have a solid night all around is De’Aaron Fox from the Kings. He has been on fire as of late and he could continue to perform at a high level against the Bulls.
The Bulls have been pretty weak against point guards all year. They have allowed the 4th most points and 8th most assists to opposing point guards. However, they got Alex Caruso back in their last game and added Tristan Thompson a couple weeks ago as well.
Caruso and Thompson should help them in those defensive statistics, but Fox should still be in for a great night.
De’Aaron Fox over his last 10:— NBACentral (@TheNBACentral) March 13, 2022
41 PTS – 11 AST – 47% FG
32 PTS – 10 AST – 52% FG
24 PTS – 7 AST – 56% FG
44 PTS – 6 AST – 58% FG
26 PTS – 9 AST – 50% FG
25 PTS – 3 AST – 50% FG
29 PTS – 10 AST – 50% FG
26 PTS – 10 AST – 53% FG
20 PTS – 4 AST – 50% FG
33 PTS – 9 AST – 54% FG pic.twitter.com/8k8pRubrOd
He went off in his last game for 41 points and 11 assists. The game before that he dropped 32 points and 5 assists. Those two games would beat this P+R+A total without the rebounds. He’s not a big rebounder, but he averaged 4 per game in these two as well.
Fox will look to carry over his success into this game and the matchup still looks good for him. His game earlier this year against Chicago was impressive as well, recording 33 points, 6 rebounds, and 9 assists.
In Fox’s last 15 games, he’s averaging 29 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 6.9 assists per game. He’s had two 40+ point games in his last 4, so maybe tonight he can make it a 3rd.
My Best NBA Player Prop for 3/14/2022
Trae Young to Record 10+ Assists-136
I have 3 P+R+A bets recommended for today, so I’ll switch it up for my last one. Trae Young will be my target for tonight, but in the assists category.
If you remember Young’s last game against Portland back in early January, then you know what kind of night he can have. The Atlanta star point guard went for an insane night with 56 points with 14 assists.
I don’t think another 50+ game is too likely, but I could be wrong. There is some blowout potential in this game due to the Trail Blazers lineup, so I’ll look at assists for Young.
He should be able to get a bunch of assists tonight running the Hawks’ offense.
