Top NBA Player Prop Bets for Thursday, January 20, 2022

| January 20, 2022 9:30 am PDT

Last night saw a return to form for my NBA player prop bets. If you were hanging in there after a rough slate the day before, you were rewarded, as my props were 3-0 going into the final game of the night.

Domantas Sabonis got the job done against the Lakers, giving me a clean 4-0 sweep. That’s a winning night if there ever was one, and hopefully you were along for the ride.

Let’s keep it going on Thursday, where things calm down for a tiny three-game schedule. Here are the four NBA player props that stand out for me on January 20, 2022.

Brandon Ingram to Make 2+ Threes (-169)

You can find all of these bets at tonight. This first one looks especially good if Devonte’ Graham is out. He’s questionable going into Thursday’s tilt with the Knicks.

That could force Ingram to hoist a few more shots. Considering he already attempts 18.7 shots per game, and 1.6 of those get hit from long distance.

Ingram shoots a middling 34% from deep, but he takes a decent amount of three-pointers (4.8 per contest), and gets a Knicks defense that ranks 23rd in threes allowed per game.

I like Ingram to pop off as a scorer tonight, and betting on 2+ made threes feels like an easy way to take advantage of that.

Kemba Walker Over 23+ Points+Rebounds+Assists (-112)

Staying in that same game, I think bettors can take advantage of this low total for Kemba Walker. He returned from a pretty long layoff and played 30 minutes in his last game, so provided he doesn’t rest, he should be fairly busy.

Derrick Rose is still out, so Walker should be looking at a start and 30+ minutes.

The Pels are a good matchup. Take a look at where they rank in some key areas on the year.

  • 21st in points allowed per game
  • 29th in three-pointer % allowed
  • 22nd in threes allowed per game
  • 20th in assists/turnover ratio

Walker is prone to some tragic floor games, but he should get plenty of burn, and the matchup is about as good as it gets.

This total is also really low. He easily surpassed it in his recent outing, and I think he can do it again at a solid -112 price.

Justin Holiday Over 17+ Points+Rebounds+Assists (-123)

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’m a huge fan of these combo bets. They give you all kinds of wiggle room, assuming the price is right.

Justin Holiday is mostly known for his ability to put the ball through the hoop, but it’s his minutes I’m hooked by. He usually is going to push for 30+, but he may never leave the floor tonight.

A date with the Warriors isn’t ideal, but Holiday and other Pacers could be extra busy if Domantas Sabonis sits this one out.

Indy is already ailing with Myles Turner banged up, and the fact that they play on consecutive nights may see other guys take a breather, too.

With the added run, I love Holiday to get 17+ points, rebounds, and assists.

Thursday’s Top NBA Player Prop Bet

  • JaVale McGree to Get 2+ Blocks

Give me all of this prop. JaVale McGee doesn’t always get loads of minutes, but he should get the start and play enough to have a shot at pulling this off.

Why? Because usual starter Deandre Ayton won’t be suiting up tonight.

McGee needs to do a lot in a little amount of time, but we all know he can be a shot-blocking machine. He only logs 16.2 minutes per game on the season, but he still swats 0.8 blocks per contest.

Dallas is blocked at the lowest rate in the NBA, but this is all about what McGee does as well as anyone, and his added burn. The price is also fantastic, so I don’t mind rolling the dice a bit to wrap things up.
