The NBA returns with seven games after the All-Star break, so all you bettors out there have probably been struggling the past few days. Don’t worry, you’ll get your fix on Thursday night with plenty of player props to sift through. Below we’re going to go over the most bet on player props on DraftKings Sportsbook for the slate with some analysis.

NBA player prop bets, Feb. 24

Update — So we’ve got some movement from earlier on in the top 5. Here’s a look at the updated top 5 and how some of those lines have shifted since earlier in the day:

  1. Trae Young O8.5 assists (-160)
  2. Seth Curry O15.5 points (-160)
  3. D’Angelo Russell O29.5 Pts + Rebs + Asts (-150)
  4. DeMar DeRozan O28.5 points (-140)
  5. Al Horford O2.5 assists (-180)

So a few of these props are from the earlier list. Two have dropped out — Morris and D’Lo’s 3-point prop (which I thought was pretty decent). D’Lo’s over Pts + Rebs + Asts prop has jumped up to -150 from earlier before. The Curry prop really moved from -110 to -160. Horford enters the top 5 with his assist prop being pretty low. Horford is a great passer out of the post and off of pick-and-rolls, so that line is pretty gassed up to -180. You can maybe parlay a few of these together to create a decent play.

  1. Trae Young O8.5 assists (-155)
  2. Seth Curry O15.5 points (-110)
  3. D’Angelo Russell O2.5 3-pointers (-140)
  4. Monte Morris U21.5 Pts + Rebs + Asts (-120)
  5. D’Angelo Russell O29.5 Pts + Rebs + Asts (-135)

There’s a lot of love for D’Angelo Russell on tonight’s slate against the Memphis Grizzlies. There’s a reason you’ll see player props for this game pop up — the total is insanely high at 240 points and most of the action is on that over. The 5th-ranked prop would scare me a bit but the 3-point prop feels like a safe enough option.

We also see bettors going back to the Seth Curry well with his points prop remaining the same. The Nets are at home, so Kyrie Irving will be playing. That should honestly help Curry playing off the ball more and getting better looks from outside created by Irving.
