March 24 NBA Prop Bet Tips: Nikola Jokic, Thaddeus Young

Last Updated: Mar 24, 2021

For Wednesday, Mike Barner has your March 24 NBA Prop Bet Tips and 3/24/21 NBA Player Prop Bets. All odds were obtained from PointsBet.

We started off the week on a high note, going 2-1 with my player prop picks Monday. For the season, my record sits at 47-51 (-12.34 units). Let’s highlight three more props to consider for Wednesday’s 11-game slate.

March 24 NBA Prop Bet Tips

Nikola Jokic, Denver Nuggets at Toronto Raptors

Over 44.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists (-115)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.87 units)

The Raptors have had problems slowing down their opponents this season, posting the 10th-worst defensive rating in the league. They have also allowed the sixth-most rebounds per game and the second-most assists per game. Enter Jokic, who has recorded at least 45 combined points, rebounds and assists in six of his last seven games. Look for him to have another big performance.

Thaddeus Young, Chicago Bulls vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

Over 6.5 Rebounds (-130)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.77 units)

Will the Bulls make a trade before the deadline? They seem intent to hold onto Young, who has been a key veteran for the team. He’s been excellent on the boards since moving into the starting five, grabbing at least seven rebounds in six straight contests. With Wendell Carter Jr.’s role diminishing, Young should have an excellent opportunity to continue his recent run of success.

Ricky Rubio, Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Dallas Mavericks

Over 7.5 Assists (-105)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.95 units)

The absences of D’Angelo Russell (knee) and Malik Beasley (suspension) have put Rubio in an ideal situation from a playmaking perspective. He still has two excellent scorers around him in Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards, and he’s been forced to play more because of the Timberwolves’ depleted depth chart. The result has been him recording at least eight assists in six of his last eight games. He could reach that threshold again facing a Mavericks team that has the eighth-worst defensive rating.
