NBA Player Prop Best Bets for Friday, April 12

With only two days remaining the NBA regular season, the action really heats up for Friday night's 15-game slate.

The NBA regular season ends on Sunday and we have no games on the Saturday, which makes this the second-to-last night of the NBA season. There are 15 games on tap tonight, many of which have significant playoff implications.

Our team has analyzed every available player prop to identify our 4 best bets. Look for Haliburton and Jokic to control the pace in their games as they fight for better playoff positioning, while Ayton might struggle to score in the paint against an athletic Rockets defense.

G Tyrese Haliburton (IND): Over 0.5 DD

Haliburton and the Pacers take on the Cavs in what could be a first-round preview of the postseason. Haliburton has dropped a double-double in all three games against Cleveland this season and with the superstar back on track (38% from 3 this month), look for added defensive attention on Hali which will bode well for a double-double tonight.

C Nikola Jokic (DEN): Over 27.5 PTS

Going with another superstar, this time atop the Western Conference, look for Jokic to dominate the Spurs as Denver now controls their path to the 1st seed. 39/31/42 are Nikola’s last three games against the Spurs and Wemby. He’s just too much to handle in the paint for this young team and Pop has had no answers.

F DeAndre Ayton (POR): Under 27.5 PA

We are looking for Ayton’s under in this game against a tough Rockets interior defense that is filled with athleticism from top to bottom. Ayton has only averaged 2 assists in the month of April and only managed to put up 18 points in 41 minutes of play in this first matchup. As the season winds down, fade Ayton who has played an incredible amount of minutes this season.

F Miles Bridges (CHA): Over 20.5 PA

What are the Hornets playing for? Well, Miles Bridges is simply playing to get buckets. He’s played 38 MPG this month as the Hornets search for some sort of bright spot alongside Ball and newfound rook Brandon Miller. Averaging about 21 PPG and 4 APG this month, this is a solid bet for Bridges who dropped 26 and 8 in this matchup a few weeks ago.
