Mikal Bridges (Brooklyn Nets)
- Over 24.5 Total Points
The Milwaukee Bucks got back on a winning streak path after having their 16-game streak ended by the Philadelphia 76ers last Saturday. The Bucks defeated the Washington Wizards and then the Orlando Magic to continue their quest for the top of the standings in the Eastern Conference.
On Tuesday night, the Bucks defeated Orlando Magic 134-123. It was Milwaukee’s 14th consecutive win over Orlando. That is the longest active winning streak for a team against a single opponent in the NBA.
The Brooklyn Nets are on a nice little streak of their own. Brooklyn has won three straight. Their most recent game was a 118-96 victory over the Houston Rockets. Mikal Bridges led the way for the Nets in that game with 30 points and 5 assists.
Using the OddsTrader app I found the best price for this at Bet365. The OddsTrader tool helped me pinpoint this prop as it had one of the biggest discrepancies on the board since you could get under 25.5 points at BetRivers. Finding these discrepancies is a great way to use the app and get the best price available for the prop that you have selected.
Mikal Bridges was typecast as a “3 and D” player during his time with the Phoenix Suns. Bridges is showing he is so much more than that with his stint on the Nets. Given the opportunity to shine on the offensive end, Bridges has shown he can do far more than just stand behind the three-point line and space the floor. Bridges has shown an excellent ability to create his own shot and his timely offense has been key in the Nets’ recent win streak.
Bridges has gone over this number in his last three games. Bridges is averaging 33.6 points per game during this span. With the increased usage, Bridges has been putting up excellent statistics. That will continue tonight as he goes over his player prop point total.

Paolo Banchero (Orlando Magic)
- Under 7.5 Total Rebounds
The Utah Jazz are trying to make the playoffs but their recent results have been detrimental to their efforts. Utah comes into tonight’s game against the Orlando Magic on a four-game losing streak. Their most recent game was a 120-116 loss to the Dallas Mavericks. Utah will try and turn things around against the Orlando Magic tonight.
Although the Magic have had a better season than expected, it looks like their push for the Play-In tournament will come up short. The Magic are currently behind the Washington Wizards for 10th place in the West by 4.5 games. The Magic have lost their last two games at home. They fell 122-119 to the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday and then on Tuesday they fell 134-123 to the Milwaukee Bucks.
Paolo Banchero is having an excellent season for the Orlando Magic and is the favorite to win the Rookie of the Year award. However, his rebounding totals have been declining. In the past five games, Banchero has got eight, seven, six, five, and then four rebounds. Banchero has not been in the middle of the paint like he was earlier in the season. We will take advantage of this recent trend to win another player prop wager.

Mitchell Robinson (New York Knicks)
- Will Record a Double-Double
After a disappointing loss on Tuesday night to the Charlotte Hornets, the New York Knicks will be looking to start a new win streak. The Knicks came into the game against Charlotte on a nine-game win streak but fell to the second-worst team in the Eastern Conference. New York will face a much tougher task tonight against the second-place team in the Western Conference to Sacramento Kings.
Mitchell Robinson’s play has been key during the Knicks’ winning streak. Robinson has secured a double-double in five of his last seven games, including a 14-rebound effort in the win over Boston on Sunday.
The Kings run a smaller lineup with Domantas Sabonis in the middle. This will give Robinson plenty of opportunities for points and rebounds tonight. Let’s take advantage of a great matchup and a tasty price for another double-double win.
