April 7 NBA Prop Bet Tips

Kyrie Irving, Brooklyn Nets vs. New Orleans Pelicans

Over 27.5 Points (-115)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.87 units)

After James Harden went down with a hamstring Monday, Irving exploded to score 40 points against the Knicks, who are one of the best defensive teams in the league. Harden will be out for at least 10 days, and while Kevin Durant (hamstring) is expected to make his return for this game, he will likely play limited minutes. That should mean all of the shot attempts that Irving can handle against a Pelicans team with the third-worst defensive rating.

Bogdan Bogdanovic, Atlanta Hawks vs. Memphis Grizzlies

Over 15.5 Points (-112)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.89 units)

Bogdanovic is finally starting to play more, logging at least 30 minutes in each of the last five games. He scored at least 21 points in four of those contests, so this number seems a bit low. It’s likely been set here because the Grizzlies have the sixth-best defensive rating. However, Bogdanovic recently scored 22 points against a strong Suns’ defense, so I still like him to hit the over.

Miles Bridges, Charlotte Hornets at Oklahoma City Thunder

Over 13.5 Points (-110)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.91 units)

The Hornets have lost three of their top scoring options in LaMelo Ball (wrist), Gordon Hayward (foot) and Malik Monk (ankle), so they are in for a rough stretch. On the bright side, all of those injuries and available shot attempts should lead to more production from Bridges, who has averaged 14.2 points across 10 games in which he has played at least 30 minutes. This is a great matchup for him against the Thunder, who have the eighth-worst defensive rating and are riddled with injuries to some of their better players, as well.
