March 31 NBA Prop Bet Tips

James Harden, Brooklyn Nets vs. Houston Rockets

Over 20.5 Assists + Rebounds (-125)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.8 units)

Harden has been as good as it gets, recording at least 21 combined assists and rebounds in seven of his last 11 games. That included when he posted 24 combined assists and rebounds over these same Rockets. Despite the Nets winning that game by 18 points, Harden played 41 minutes. He’s averaging 39 minutes per game as a member of the Nets, so even though there is some blowout potential here, I still think he plays enough to hit the over.

Julius Randle, New York Knicks at Minnesota Timberwolves

Over 40.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists (-115)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.87 units)

This is a great matchup for Randle considering the Timberwolves have played at the fourth-fastest pace and recorded the fourth-worst defensive rating in the league. On top of that, they have allowed the third-most rebounds per game and the firth-most assists per game. The last time these two teams met, Randle recorded a combined 43 points, rebounds and assists. Expect him to have similar success in their rematch.

Malcolm Brogdon, Indiana Pacers vs. Miami Heat

Over 27.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists (-115)

Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.87 units)

Brogdon is on a scoring tear right now, averaging 22.8 points across the last nine games. He’s also averaged 4.9 rebounds and 4.9 assists during that stretch, which makes the over on this prop so appealing. In two recent matchups against the Heat, Brogdon recorded 34 and 28 combined points, rebounds and assists, respectively. With his high minutes floor and leading role on the Pacers, Brogdon could be poised for another excellent all-around stat line.
