After only three games on Thursday, we have nine NBA games for the Friday night slate with a wide array of player prop bets on DraftKings Sportsbook that we think you should keep an eye on. We’ve identified a few of them here and you should consider checking them out.

Brandon Ingram O4.5 assists (+115)

This season, it is abundantly clear that the New Orleans Pelicans’ offense runs through Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson. Ingram is having another outstanding season and should be in considering for another All-star appearance. He is averaging 23.6 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 4.8 assists in 34.8 minutes per game.

Speaking of his assists, this is a player prop I like for Friday night. Ingram has gone over 4.5 assists in 13 out of 28 games played. In New Orleans’ last five contests, he is recording 5.8 assists in 35 minutes per game. Furthermore, Ingram has gone over his assist prop total in four-straight games. In both meetings against the Suns this season, he’s posted six assists each time.

Clint Capela O14.5 points (-110)

This is another prop that I really like based off what Clint Capela has done recently and the Boston Celtics average front court. Capela and John Collins have been a dynamic duo for the Hawks in the front court this season. The 26-year-old center is averaging a double-double consisting of 14.3 points and 14.0 rebounds per game.

He has gone over 14.5 points in only 10 out of 25 games this season, which may be alarming to some. However, when the Celtics played the Hawks on Wednesday, Capela scored 24 points on shooting 10-of-13 from the field and 4-of-8 from three throw-line.

The veteran center is also averaging 16.6 points per game in Atlanta’s last five games. But within those five contests, he has scored more than 14.5 points in three-straight games.

Coby White O4.5 rebounds (+125)

This season, a lot of attention has been paid to the All-star play of Zach LaVine. However, the Bulls have another piece to their exciting backcourt, which is second-year guard Coby White.

The former UNC guard is averaging 15.4 points, 5.4 assists, and 4.7 rebounds in 33.5 minutes per game this season. While White’s points prop looks favorable to play (O15.5, -110) on Friday night, we are going to take a different route and attack his rebounding number.

The 21-year-old has gone over 4.5 rebounds in only 12 out of 27 games this season. But in the Bulls’ last five games, he is averaging 5.2 rebounds per game. If the Bulls want to keep it close against the Sixers, they will need White to help out in every facet.
