Top NBA Player Prop Bets for Friday, February 11th, 2022 – Josh Giddey, Kelly Oubre Jr., and More
Ready to win some money betting on the NBA? I’m back on Friday to close out the regular work week with my favorite NBA player props.
My NBA prop picks got off to a rough start last night, as Spencer Dinwiddie was traded before the deadline, and Kyrie Irving missed his assist total by one dime. It didn’t get any better from there, so I’ll be digging deep to hand out better NBA player prop bets for Friday night.
Whether you roll with my picks or not, be sure to bet at the best NBA sportsbooks. Let’s dive into tonight’s top NBA player props.
Josh Giddey Over 27+ Points+Rebounds+Assists (-122)
There isn’t word yet as to whether or not James Harden will be available for the 76ers following the blockbuster trade that went down on Thursday.
The 76ers trade is a new start for James Harden. It’s also an endpoint for Ben Simmons and Daryl Morey.
Here’s the story of why Simmons finally left Philadelphia & how Daryl Morey remade it in his image. Morey won by playing hardball, just like Simmons.https://t.co/e5ZZkNMolH

If he’s out, it’ll just be Joel Embiid and a gutted Philly roster hosting the Thunder. Maybe that’s enough to make this game a blowout, but if the Sixers are short handed, this could stay close.
Giddey is a threat to do good work, regardless.
OKC continues to be without Shai Gilgeos-Alexander, and Giddey is a do-it-all player who has the ball in his hands a ton. On the season, he’s averaging 12.1 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 6.2 assists per game.
On that alone, he’s a threat to get the job done here, but his role has grown with SAG sidelined.
Kelly Oubre Jr. to Make 3+ Threes (-167)
The price isn’t as nice with this one, but -167 is still palatable, and Oubre is a solid bet to let it fly for the Hornets tonight.
His date with the Pistons looks pretty good on paper. Check out these key stats.
- Pistons allow 12.3 made threes per game (15th)
- Hornets are 1st in pace in the NBA
- Pistons are 25th in defensive efficiency
- Oubre makes 2.8 three-pointers per game
Everything sets up nicely for Oubre to get it going tonight. Oubre made three long balls in his last outing, and he’s connected on multiple long range shots in a slew of games this year.
He’s going to have the green light more than ever – as well as more run – with Gordon Hayward still sidelined, too.
Charlotte says Gordon Hayward (sprained ligaments in his left ankle) is out indefinitely.

Evan Mobley Over 27+ Points+Rebounds+Assists (-118)
Evan Mobley figures to be in a good spot tonight. Indiana continues to be without Myles Turner, and the team recently traded away their best big man in Domantas Sabonis.
Mobley should eat here, as he’s been a double-double threat every night since entering the league. He’s fresh off of a nice 18 and 12 outing, and something similar could be in play here.
Need some data to back up the call? The Pacers rank 25th in points allowed per game in the paint, and their rebounding numbers take a hit with Sabonis now in Sacramento.
My Top NBA Player Prop for Friday Night
LaMelo Ball Over 8+ Assists-167
I’d certainly shop around for a better price than this, but -167 is fine enough to roll with for now. The reality is the Hornets could destroy the Pistons tonight, but this is still a good matchup for LaMelo Ball.
After wrecking as a scorer in his last outing, I think he dials it back a bit and gets his teammates involved in a matchup he should be able to dominate.
Ball averages 7.5 assists per game on the season, and he’s handed out 9+ dimes in four of his last eight games.
I think Ball has his way with Detroit, but tonight it’ll be more as a distributor.
