NBA Player Prop Best Bets for Thursday, March 7

We are smashing the over on props for Draymond Green, Ausar Thompson, Bradley Beal, and De'Aaron Fox.

This Thursday night NBA slate is headlined by TNT doubleheader that kicks off with an intriguing interconference matchup between the Heat and the Mavericks. The second game on TNT is a massive showdown between the Eastern Conference favorite Boston Celtics and Western Conference favorite Denver Nuggets.

Find our favorite player props from tonight's loaded NBA slate below.

F Draymond Green (GSW)

Over 5.0 AST

Green and the Warriors are in a great spot here against Chicago. First off, the Bulls are allowing the 9th-most APG in the league mostly off catch and shoot opportunities. Secondly, Draymond has hit this marker in more than half of his games this season.

With the Warriors offense getting back into rhythm once again, look for this to become a high scoring game with Golden State looking to Draymond as their key creator at the top of the key against this vulnerable defense.

F Ausar Thompson (DET)

Over 0.5 DD (3.5x)

While Jalen Duren’s double-double prop hasn’t hit the market on Underdog yet, we are looking to Ausar Thompson to make a splash in this game. The Nets have been horrendous while showing no chemistry as of late, winning just 33% of their close games. Furthermore, they have struggled to score while allowing opposing teams to out rebound them after the All-Star break.

Ausar has flirted with a double-double recently, averaging 10.4 PPG and 6.2 RPG over his last five appearances. Notching two double-doubles in his rookie season thus far, this is a scrapy matchup that should favor the Pistons on the rebounding side which Ausar should take advantage of.

G Bradley Beal (PHX)

Over 1.5 3PM

In 33 games this season, Beal is averaging 1.7 3PM per contest. However, he’s turned it on over his last five games and with Devin Booker out of this matchup, Beal should dominate against a smaller backcourt in Toronto.

In Phoenix wins, Beal is averaging 2.2 3PM per contest and with the Suns favored here against a hurt Raptors squad, this number is more than reachable for the lead guard in Brad Beal. Toronto has also allowed the 3rd-worst 3PT% and the most 3PM over their last three outings.

G De’Aaron Fox (SAC)

Over 2.5 STOCKS

While we love the Spurs’ young squad, this is a bad matchup for a team that sits inside the bottom five in turnovers per game. From Wemby’s casual 4 to 5 turnovers per game to a young backcourt trying to find their rhythm each game, this is matchup heaven for De’Aaron Fox who just had a massive night against the Lakers.

Averaging 2.7 STOCKS per contest in wins while hitting the 3 STOCK mark a few weeks ago against San Antonio, look for “Swipa” to notch 3 blocks+steals once again.
