Last week brought us a lot of excitement in the NBA. We had Zion Williamson’s NBA debut and insane fourth quarter outburst. We had Damian Lillard on a scoring rampage. We had Ben Simmons going full “Put the team on my back” mode with Joel Embiid sidelined. It was a wild ride. If you were in on some of those player prop bets on DraftKings Sportsbook, all three of those guys helped you out big time. DK Sportsbook provided us with the top 5 most profitable player props by winnings, handle and bets from 1/23 to 1/29.

Top NBA Player Props — 1/23 - 1/29

Rank By Winnings By Handle By Bets
Rank By Winnings By Handle By Bets
1 Zion Williamson Over 14.5 Points Ben Simmons to Score 1st FG Zion Williamson Over 14.5 Points
2 Zion Williamson Over 5.5 Rebounds Zion Williamson Over 14.5 Points Ben Simmons to Score 1st FG
3 Damian Lillard Over 29.5 Points Zion Williamson Over 22.5 Points, Rebounds & Assists LeBron James Over 24.5 Points
4 Jarrett Allen to Score 1st FG Zion Williamson Over 5.5 Rebounds Kyrie Irving Over 22.5 Points
5 LeBron James Over 26.5 Points Kyrie Irving Over 22.5 Points Zion Williamson Over 5.5 Rebounds

A Zion prop shows up in the top 3 in each category, unsurprisingly. Williamson hit his point total OVER in his first three games before Tuesday. Zion shows up SEVEN times on this chart, so nearly half of the most profitable player props from the past seven days. A couple of Ben Simmons’ first FG props ended up hitting big, which is a tough category to win, essentially a toss up depending on who gets the ball first off the tip. Damian Lillard absolutely obliterated all of his point total OVERs during this stretch, most notably the OVER on 29.5 points.
