Top NBA Player Prop Bets for Tuesday, January 11, 2022

| January 11, 2022 11:32 am PDT

Tuesday night is all about the Memphis Grizzlies in the NBA. Klay Thompson is set to appear in his second game of the year, too, but he’ll be taking on a Grizz squad that will eye their 10th straight win.

You can bet on the game itself, as Anthony Haage broke things down in his Warriors vs. Grizzlies betting pick. I’ve got you covered on the props side of things, and I’ll stretch my neck for wagers outside of the night’s most compelling showdown.

Yesterday’s NBA player props were a hit. LaMelo Ball made four threes (+120), and Matisse Thybulle had more than two steals (-143), while Royce O’Neale needed one more point to get my readers a third win.

Let’s see which NBA player prop bets look good for Tuesday, January 11, 2022.

Desmond Bane Over 25+ Points+Rebounds+Assists (-120)

I admittedly got a bit too ambitious with this same prop in regards to Nassir Little last night. The odds aren’t as alluring here, but you can tackle the same bet with less risk at

Bane is a threat to score 20+ points every time out these days, and his role is solidified with Dillon Brooks on the shelf.

His season averages eclipse this mark, and Bane will be needed to take out the Dubs tonight.

Bane is presently on a bit of a heater. He’s topped 20+ actual points in six of his last eight games, and during that stretch, he’s topped this total six times.

Barring a total meltdown, he should get there, and the -120 price is fantastic.

Kyle Kuzma to Get 1+ Block (-167)

This same bet with Daniel Gafford (1.8 blocks per game) would be a lot more appealing. I don’t see it out there just yet, but if you find it, be sure to target it if the price is right.

Kuzma could still get bettors an easy win, though.

Given that he’s not a traditional big man, he averages a surprising 0.7 blocks per contest. He also happens to face a bad Rockets team that gets blocked 5.9 times per game (3rd most in the NBA).

Lonzo Ball to Get 2+ Steals (-167)

The Pistons give the ball away as much as anyone (17th most steals allowed) in The Association, and tonight they face a tough Bulls team.

Chicago ranks inside the top-10 with 7.8 thefts per contest, and Lonzo Ball has been a big part of that.

Ball is averaging 1.9 steals per game, and his defensive intensity is required even more with Alex Caruso sidelined. This feels like the perfect spot for Ball to get his hands dirty, and he’s also in quite the thieving mode lately.

Here are his steal numbers in his last four games.

  • @ Mavs: 3 steals
  • VS. Wizards: 2 steals
  • VS. Magic: 3 steals
  • VS. Rockets: 5 steals

Ball is always a threat for multiple steals every single time he touches the floor. This is a good spot to trust him to get 2+ steals, yet again.

My Top NBA Player Prop for 1/11

  • Karl-Anthony Towns Over 25+ Points

Play it a bit safer at 23 points (-204) if you feel like it, but KAT could score a lot more than that when he faces the Pels. This is a good marker and a nice price, but I’d go as high as 29+ (+140).

Towns has wrecked the Pels all year. He’s faced them three times, and is averaging over 28 points per game in those meetings.

His ability to score inside and out – coupled with New Orleans’ poor defense – makes this a fun bet that stands out on this small slate.

Whether you like my top NBA player props or not, there are so many ways to profit from the NBA these days. To ensure you make the most informed decisions, though, check out our detailed guide to betting on NBA props below.
