There are a lot of spots to win money on in the NBA on a nightly basis. DraftKings Sportsbook sent us over a list of the top 10 most profitable teams and players from the past seven days. Here’s the complete list:
NBA Money Makers — 1/23 - 1/29
|MEM Grizzlies||1||Damian Lillard|
|OKC Thunder||2||Zion Williamson|
|POR Trail Blazers||3||Pascal Siakam|
|LA Clippers||4||Ja Morant|
|DEN Nuggets||5||Bradley Beal|
|TOR Raptors||6||Kawhi Leonard|
|HOU Rockets||7||Kevin Love|
|IND Pacers||8||Jarrett Allen|
|ATL Hawks||9||Donovan Mitchell|
|BOS Celtics||10||Nemanja Bjelica|
Let’s break down the teams a bit first. The Grizzlies and Thunder continue their climb to hitting their win total OVERs for the season. In that seven day stretch, the Grizzlies went 4-0 and covered the spread in each of those wins. The only surprising one was on Tuesday against the Nuggets at home, a 104-96 victory. The Thunder were 3-1, their only loss coming on Monday to the Mavericks. Two road victories with short spreads helped OKC cash in your bets most likely.
The two names at the top for players should come as no surprise. Damian Lillard was named Western Conference Player of the Week after scoring a combined 133 points over the past three games, including 36 last night against the Rockets. We were a bit skittish on betting Zion Williamson props to begin the season, but after he exploded in the fourth quarter of his NBA debut, it gave us some ease. Zion followed the next two performances up by going OVER his point and rebounding totals. He notched his first career double-double on Sunday against the Celtics and hit another rebounding prop on Tuesday vs. the Cavaliers.
