January 18 NBA Player Prop Bet Tips: Trae Young, Khris Middleton

For Monday, Mike Barner has your January 18 NBA Prop bet tips and 1/18/21 NBA Player Prop Bets. All odds were obtained from PointsBet.

After a much-needed 7-1 performance last week with my player props picks, my overall record for the season is 12-14 (-4.95 units). I’ll try to build on that momentum Monday with three more wagers to consider.

After a rough stretch for Young that included several of the best defensive teams in the league, he rebounded against the suspect Trail Blazers’ defense Saturday to record 26 points, seven rebounds and 11 assists. While his scoring average is down this season at 23.2 points per game, part of that can be attributed to him shooting just 38.6 percent from the field. As that number starts to improve, so will his scoring average.

This is a great opportunity for him to post another juicy all-around stat line against a Timberwolves team that has played at the sixth-fastest pace in the league.

Khris Middleton, Milwaukee Bucks at Brooklyn Nets

Over 34.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists (-114)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.88 units)

MIL @ BKN | 01/18, 7:30 PM

This is the marquee matchup of the slate. With James Harden now in the fold, it seems almost inevitable that the Nets and Bucks will both make deep runs into the playoffs. The Bucks haven’t been involved in a lot of close games this season, which can sometimes limit Middleton’s playing time.

Still, he’s posted stellar averages of 21.8 points, 6.5 rebounds and 5.7 assists. This should be a close contest that leads to plenty of minutes for Middleton, which could leave him with a great performance given that the Nets have played at the fifth-fastest pace.


Enes Kanter, Portland Trail Blazers vs. San Antonio Spurs

Over 12.5 Rebounds (-130)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.77 units)

o12.5 Reb(-130)

SAS @ POR | 01/18, 3:00 PM

Kanter is now the starting center for the Blazers with Jusuf Nurkic (wrist) out. In his first game as starter, he exploded for 12 points and 15 rebounds across 29 minutes. Even averaging only 19 minutes a game this season, Kanter has been able to average 9.4 boards a night. A starting role against a Spurs team that has allowed the second-most rebounds per game makes the over very appealing.
