January 22 NBA Player Prop Bet Tips: Victor Oladipo, Jerami Grant

For Friday, Mike Barner has your January 22 NBA Prop Bet Tips and 1/22/21 NBA Player Prop Bets. All odds were obtained from PointsBet.

After splitting a pair of player prop picks Wednesday, my overall record for the season stands at 14-17 (-6.25 units). While Friday brings a packed slate in the NBA, I’m looking at three NBA player props from the same game to hopefully leave us with a profitable evening.

I’m going to the well again here with Grant, who hit the over for us on 22.5 points Wednesday when he scored 32 points in an overtime loss to the Hawks. He’s averaging 25.4 points for the season and has scored at least 24 points in 11 of 14 contests. He’s shooting 47.3 percent from the field and has attempted at least 19 shots in a game 11 times, which leaves him with significant scoring upside.

He’ll have a larger opportunity to hit his fantasy potential now that the Rockets will be playing without their best rim protector in Christian Wood (ankle).

Victor Oladipo, Houston Rockets at Detroit Pistons

Over 23.5 Points (-115)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.87 units)

The Wood injury is big for the Rockets considering he’s averaging 23.5 points a game. In addition to his absence, John Wall (knee) will miss his fifth straight contest. Oladipo already attempted at least 22 shots in both of his first two games with the team, scoring 32 and 22 points, respectively. With all of the shots that he can handle likely coming his way here, he could explode against a Pistons team that has the sixth-worst defensive rating in the league.

 

Eric Gordon, Houston Rockets at Detroit Pistons

Over 19.5 Points (-115)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.87 units)

Someone other than Oladipo is going to have to score to keep this game close. Enter Gordon, who has scored at least 20 points in five of nine games this season. That includes him scoring at least 21 points in both games that he’s played since James Harden was traded to the Nets. With the expectation that he at least approaches 20 shot attempts in this game, I’ll take the over on Gordon’s scoring prop, as well as Oladipo’s.
