Top NBA Player Prop Bets for Thursday, February 3rd, 2022
I went into last night’s NBA betting slate eyeing a 3-1 mark or better with my NBA player props. I delivered exactly that, with only Jaylen Brown failing me.
Anthony Davis topped 26 points (-114), Josh Giddey was as active as expected (-118), and Caris LeVert (-105) got it done, as well.
One great way to find winning NBA player props is to monitor injuries and assess which players are going to see expanded roles. For a bit more advice on how to handle this type of betting, be sure to read our NBA prop betting guide.
Thursday offers a nice six-game NBA schedule, and there are once again some NBA player prop bets that stand out. Here are my favorite four to target on February 3rd, 2022.
Jerami Grant Over 27+ Points+Rebounds+Assists (-119)
Jerami Grant finally returned from a long layoff and immediately logged 29 minutes. He wasn’t lights out, but he was plenty efficient en route to 17 points in a loss to the Pelicans.
The important thing is Detroit’s best player is back in the saddle. The Pistons could also be without stud rookie Cade Cunningham tonight.
This is potentially a pretty big deal, seeing as Cade Cunningham has played his way into being the NBA Rookie of the Year favorite.

Combine those two facts, and I love Grant to be very busy on Thursday.
A date with the Timberwolves should scare nobody, either. If Cunningham is out, we know Grant will be the top scorer, and he should create for others on offense, as well.
Averaging 20 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.5 dimes per game on the year, Grant doesn’t need to exceed his usual production to win sports bettors money tonight.
Klay Thompson to Make 3+ Threes (+108)
I have interest in Stephen Curry’s three-pointer count (5+ at +120), too, but the long ball is what Thompson is best at, and his total is more reachable.
The price is plenty fine at +108, too, so I’m not losing sleep over this one.
Thompson rested in Golden State’s last game, so he should be fresh and ready to rock against the Sacramento Kings. I don’t know if you remember, but he had a good game against them once.
Thompson’s efficiency (32.9%) hasn’t been there, but the volume and ability sure exist. That, and the Kings (28th in points allowed per game, 16th in threes allowed per game) are a pretty good matchup.
Tyrese Haliburton Over 28+ Points+Rebounds+Assists (-109)
I don’t know if you can tell, but I love these combined stat total props. They’re especially attractive when you have a talented player with a huge role, and the total/odds just don’t add up.
You can target this bet wherever you bet on sports online, but the total and odds seen above can be found at BetOnline.
Haliburton is a threat to score and dish out dimes at a high rate, but he’s really going to be tasked with a lot of the heavy-lifting if De’Aaron Fox remains sidelined with an ankle issue.
He’s at risk after sitting out again last night.

I like Haliburton to top this low bar, regardless. The Dubs aren’t an easy matchup, but Haliburton is very involved in what the Kings do, no matter who is on the floor with him.
He’s managed to top this total three times in his last five games, and I think he’s a good bet to do so again on Thursday.
My Top NBA Player Prop for 2/3
DeMar DeRozan to Score 26+ Points-130
I like all of the NBA player props listed above, but my favorite is DeMar DeRozan going ham in front of his old home crowd.
DeRozan probably wants to stick it to the franchise that traded him away, while he’ll likely be energized playing in front of a fan base that loves him.
Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso both being out only aid the argument, as his usage should be monstrous.
