March 23 NBA Prop Bet Tips
Dennis Schroder, Los Angeles Lakers at New Orleans Pelicans
Over 6.5 assists (-110)
Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.91 units)
Dennis Schroder Over 6.5 Assists
LAL @ NOP | 03/23, 6:30 PM
Bet $20, Payout $38
The Pelicans have allowed a Western Conference-high 26.7 assists per game and Schroder recently put together three straight seven-assist tallies against the Warriors, Timberwolves and Hornets. The veteran point guard should have even more ball-handling responsibilities for the foreseeable future with LeBron James out with his ankle sprain, and Schroder is averaging 6.9 dimes per 36 minutes without his teammate and Anthony Davis (calf) on the floor. The fact New Orleans also surrenders the eighth-highest shooting percentage (47.3) only serves to up the chances many of Schroder’s passes eventually turn into buckets.
Jamal Murray, Denver Nuggets at Orlando Magic
Over 20.5 points (-120)
Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.83 units)
Jamal Murray Over 20.5 Points
DEN @ ORL | 03/23, 6:00 PM
Bet $20, Payout $37
The Magic are allowing the ninth-most points per game (26.0) to point guards, along with elevated 40.2 percent three-point shooting to the position. Murray is averaging a career-high 21.1 points per game and has scored over 21 points in 14 of the last 18 games overall. He’s also been a more productive scorer on the road, putting up 22.8 points per contest on 53.0 percent shooting in 19 away contests.
Tobias Harris, Philadelphia 76ers at Golden State Warriors
Over 22.5 points (-120)
Wager: 1 unit (win would play 1.83 units)
Harris is averaging 24.2 points per 36 minutes without Seth Curry (ankle) and Joel Embiid (knee) on the floor, and Tuesday’s matchup against an even more fast-paced squad than his own could set the big man up for a fruitful night on the offensive end. Although Golden State has generally made life tough on opposing shooters at home, the Dubs are allowing an elevated 38.8 percent success rate from distance to fours, while Harris draining a career-best 41.2 percent of his three-point attempts. Additionally, the Warriors are facilitating a Western Conference-high 5.2 free-throw attempts per game to PFs, and Harris checks in having eclipsed 22.5 points in four of his last seven games.
