Best NBA Player Props for April 14, 2024

BET NBA PLAYER PROPS FOR APRIL 14, 2024 – The final Sunday of the NBA regular season is here and it is our last chance to cash on player props until the postseason, when the stakes are higher. It takes a little digging to find which teams are playing for something because many teams are resting their star players. We cashed all three props last week, so let’s run it back on this 15-game slate with every team in action.

LeBron James Over 2.5 Threes +150

The Lakers have an important game tomorrow; they are a game ahead of Sacramento and Golden State but do not hold the tiebreaker against either of them. They can fall from the eighth seed to the tenth seed and have to go on the road in the Play-In Tournament. They are 27-14 at home this season, and 18-21 on the road, so it is important to them to play at home.

The matchup for James is a solid one, especially behind the arc. The Pelicans allow 13.6 three-pointers made per game, which is 24th in the league, and have allowed 16 in each of their past two games (Kings and Warriors). James is shooting 69.2% from three this season against the Pelicans and 48.4% in his last 10 games. LeBron tends to take and make important shots in pressure moments and helps when he is open. This is plus-money, but a solid value in an important matchup. He will have the ball in his hands, he just has to knock them down.

CJ McCollum Over 3.5 Threes -140

I’m going to flip to the other side of this game because the Pelicans are playing to avoid the Play-In Tournament. They hold the sixth seed currently but do not hold the tiebreaker over the seventh-seed Suns. If the Suns win, and they lose, it would drop them in the standings. This game is on ESPN for a reason. We are going back to the same prop market, too, except this time it has a little juice.

McCollum has been lights out from behind the arc recently, shooting 51.9% in his last 10 games. The Lakers are 28th in the league, allowing 14.3 made three-pointers per game at 37.6%. They do not defend the three well, and McCollum is knocking down open threes. He has made 17 in his last two games and will have the ball in his hands a lot. They are 3.5-point favorites, so this game should be close down the stretch and his minutes will be there. He has to continue to make the three against a team that does not defend them well.

Karl-Anthony Towns Over 16.5 Points -105

I mentioned what the Suns have at stake above, and the Timberwolves are fighting for the one seed. They are in a three-way tie with the Nuggets and Thunder to secure home-court advantage throughout the playoffs, so they will be playing to win, but so will the Suns.

KAT just returned from injury and played 28 minutes against the Hawks. He only scored 11 points, but Rudy Gobert was perfect from the field and scored 25 points. Gobert is averaging four points per game against the Suns this season, largely due to Jusuf Nurkic. Nurkic is a big body that can contain Gobert and keep him off the glass. Beyond Nurkic, they have Kevin Durant as their PF and Drew Eubanks (questionable – ankle) off the bench. KAT should eat in this matchup and his point total is limited because of the return from injury/limited minutes.

In one game against the Suns this season, he played 31 minutes and scored 25 points on 58.8% shooting. He should be motivated to play to secure home court and has a solid matchup. Take this total with confidence, and it may be worth laddering his points to 25, which is +550 on DraftKings.
