The NBA brings us more action for tonight and we are excited to find some winning player props.

We have a huge NBA slate tonight. There are exciting matchups for us tonight such as the Utah Jazz vs. Dallas Mavericks, the Charlotte Hornets vs. New York Knicks, and the Orlando Magic vs. Miami Heat.

Utah Jazz vs. Dallas Mavericks

Tuesday, March 7, 2023 – 08:30 PM EST at American Airlines Center

Kyrie Irving (Dallas Mavericks)

The Dallas Mavericks host the Utah Jazz tonight. In their most recent meeting, Dallas defeated the Jazz in Utah 124-111. In that game, Kyrie Irving did not play but Josh Green and Jaden Hardy both scored 29 points to lead the Mavericks.

Josh Green and Jaden Hardy were able to slice up the Jazz defense, we would expect Kyrie Irving to be able to do the same. Utah has lost their last three games. It appears that the Jazz have given up on the season and could be tanking for the rest of the way. Utah could also be struggling with fatigue as this is their third game in a six-game road trip. This is the Mavericks’ last game of a six-game homestand.

The Pick

Kyrie Irving has gone over this point prop total in his last two games, including a 40-point output against the Philadelphia 76ers. He scored 30 points in 37 minutes against the Phoenix Suns. With the Mavericks coming off a tough loss against the Phoenix Suns, the team should be eager to get back on the right track tonight.

Kyrie Irving is one of the most gifted scorers in NBA history and against the Jazz team that is not too interested in winning right now, the ingredients are there for him to cook up the recipe for success.

NBA Prop Pick: Kyrie Irving Over 25.5 Points (-125) at BetMGM

Charlotte Hornets vs. New York Knicks

Tuesday, March 7, 2023 – 07:30 PM EST at Madison Square Garden

Julius Randle (New York Knicks)

The New York Knicks have the current longest winning streak in the NBA at nine games. Their most recent outing was an impressive 131-129 double-overtime victory over the Boston Celtics. The Knicks come into this game on a roll and are playing arguably the best basketball in the NBA right now.

The Hornets have lost three games in a row. They were playing well until they lost LaMelo Ball. Without Ball in the lineup, the Hornets have been ineffectual and have lacked punch on the offensive end.

The Pick

Julius Randle averages 10.4 rebounds per game this season. Big men have crushed against the Hornets this year and tonight will be no different. The Hornets are tanking and Randle will be able to have a big game. Fade the tanking teams for the rest of the season!

NBA Prop Pick: Julius Randle Over 9.5 Rebounds (-143) at Unibet

Golden State Warriors vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

Tuesday, March 7, 2023 – 08:00 PM EST at Paycom Center

Kevon Looney (Golden State Warriors)

The Golden State Warriors have struggled on the road this season. The Warriors’ road woes continued when they fell to the Los Angeles Lakers in prime time on Sunday. They are 7-24 on the road this season. The game did mark the return of Steph Curry from injury. Curry will be in the lineup for the Warriors tonight.

The Oklahoma City Thunder ended a five-game losing streak with two straight wins over the Utah Jazz. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander came back and had 38 points in the win over the Jazz on Sunday. There are questions on whether or not the Thunder are tanking and tonight’s game could answer some of those questions.

The Pick

Kevon Looney is averaging nine rebounds per game, but here we are attacking a tasty price for Looney to get a double-double. Looney has recorded double-double in six of his last nine games.

The Thunder have a smaller lineup and are weak in the middle. Kevon Looney will be able to take advantage of that. Once again we will get some great odds that Kevin Looney to get a double-double.
