April 9 NBA Prop Bet Tips

Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors vs. Washington Wizards

Over 31.5 Points (-115)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.87 units)

This seems like a high number to take the over on, but Curry has scored at least 32 points in four straight games. That included two tough defensive matchups against the Heat and Bucks. With his 32.9 percent usage rate, he has enough volume to score a lot of points on a nightly basis, regardless of his opponent. Add in this matchup against a Wizards team that has the fifth-worst defensive rating in the league and Curry could explode again.

Karl-Anthony Towns, Minnesota Timberwolves at Boston Celtics

Over 41.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists (-115)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.87 units)

Talk about an impressive hot streak. Towns has recorded at least 42 combined points, rebounds and assists in six of his last eight games. The two times that he failed to reach that threshold, he finished with exactly 41 combined in both games, so he barely missed. Add his 28.5 percent usage rate to his stellar rebounding and high minutes floor and I like him to hit the over here.

Derrick White, San Antonio Spurs at Denver Nuggets

Over 14.5 Points (-120)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.83 units)

These two teams played each other Wednesday and White scored 18 points across 29 minutes. He’s been one of the Spurs more productive offensive players lately, averaging 16.2 points over the last 16 games. In terms of this line, he scored at least 15 points 11 times during that stretch, including six times over his last seven games.
