March 26 NBA Prop Bet Tips: Brandon Ingram, Terry Rozier

Last Updated: Mar 26, 2021

For Friday, Mike Barner has your March 26 NBA Prop Bet Tips and 3/26/21 NBA Player Prop Bets. All odds were obtained from PointsBet.

A near miss by Ricky Rubio on his assists prop and a lopsided Nuggets loss that resulted in Nikola Jokic sitting out the entire fourth quarter left me with a disastrous 0-3 mark for my player prop picks Wednesday. For the season, my record is now 47-54 (-15.34 units). I’ll look to bounce back with the following three-player props to consider for Friday.

March 26 NBA Prop Bet Tips

Brandon Ingram, New Orleans Pelicans vs. Denver Nuggets

Over 25.5 Points (-120)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.83 units)

Despite the Pelicans’ disappointing record, there has been a lot to like about Ingram’s performance this season. From an offensive perspective, he’s in an ideal situation. First, he plays a ton, averaging 34 minutes per game. Second, he has a 28.1 percent usage rate that ranks inside the top-30 in the league. Finally, he’s been efficient, shooting 47.9 percent from the field and 88.2 percent from the charity stripe. As a result, Ingram has scored at least 28 points in four of his last six games, which included a 30-point effort against these same Nuggets last weekend.

Terry Rozier, Charlotte Hornets vs. Miami Heat

Over 20.5 Points (-115)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.87 units)

Rozier has never been one to shy away from jacking up shots and the Hornets will need him to do that even more now that LaMelo Ball (wrist) is out. In two games since Ball suffered his injury, Rozier scored 24 and 25 points, respectively. He attempted a total of 31 shots from the field and 13 free-throws, which is even more encouraging when you consider that he only played 30 minutes in a blowout win over the Rockets on Wednesday. This should be a much closer contest, leaving Rozier with plenty of scoring upside.

Will Barton, Denver Nuggets at New Orleans Pelicans

Over 14.5 Points (-115)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.87 units)

This line feels like a gift. Yes, Barton was held scoreless in a blowout loss to the Raptors on Wednesday. However, prior to that, he had scored at least 16 points in eight straight games. He averaged 35 minutes per game during that stretch and should continue to play a lot Friday with Monte Morris (quadriceps) out and Gary Harris and R.J. Hampton having just been traded. Add in the Pelicans sporting the third-worst defensive rating in the league and Barton could blow past the over.
