The NBA hasn’t taken a breather like Thursday’s in quite a while, as only two games are on tap. The pair of nationally televised clashes do carry no shortage of star power, though, considering the Nets, 76ers, Warriors and Nuggets will be on the floor. The Brooklyn-Philadelphia clash particularly offers some juicy storylines related to the recent blockbuster trade between the two clubs.

Thursday March 10 NBA odds

Here are Thursday March 10 NBA odds with point spreads, moneylines and totals.

NBA player prop bet options

Nets G Kyrie Irving

Coming off the first game in NBA history with 50 points on true shooting over 100%, Kyrie Irving is being assigned with a low scoring prop of just 24.5 points at FanDuel. The Nets are in a big spot at the 76ers, and Irving will be ready to go right at former running mate James Harden. Irving dropped 37 points on 13-for-22 FG shooting in his last trip to Wells Fargo Center and he’s averaging 32.3 PPG and 6.5 APG over his last six outings. He has fresh legs with only 17 games under his belt this season and he has a good chance to clear 30-plus points again, which would generate +240 odds at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Warriors G Stephen Curry

The Warriors have dropped five of their last six on the road with a rough 120.7 defensive rating in that span. However, they still rank seventh in offensive rating and fifth in true shooting percentage (60.7%) during those games, with Steph Curry leading the way. Steph has a much higher usage rate on the road over the past few months and he’s averaging 26.9 PPG on 45% 3-point shooting over his last eight road tilts. He’s scoring 32 PPG with 6.3 triples per game over his last three trips to Denver and the Nuggets are playing at the fifth-fastest pace while allowing opponents to shoot 37.8% from deep over their last six home games. Curry is also assigned with a low scoring prop of 24.5 points tonight at FanDuel.

What to watch for today

Harden, Simmons returns highlight Eastern Conference battle: The records of the two teams have notably diverged in recent weeks, but a Nets-76ers matchup with both Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant available for Brooklyn still qualifies as a marquee clash. The fact James Harden will be facing a team he just left under a rumored cloud of dissatisfaction and that Ben Simmons, who certainly has no love lost for his former Philadelphia squad, will be returning as a spectator to the city of Brotherly Love adds a whole other level of intrigue. From a basketball perspective, the hosts still seem to wield a more complete squad, but they’re relatively modest 4.5-point home favorites as of early Thursday.

Warriors out to continue rebuilding contender cred, avoid season sweep by Nuggets: The back end of the nationally televised doubleheader is must-see TV as well, as the Warriors pay a visit to a Nuggets squad that’s taken each of the first three meetings between the clubs this season. Golden State finally looked like itself again Tuesday night in a big home win against the Clippers, but Thursday certainly brings a big boost in caliber of competition. All three previous games between the teams have been very hotly contested, with Denver escaping by margins of three, one and seven points. Accordingly, the spread sits at Nuggets -2.5 as of early Thursday, while the total checks in at 226.5 points with each team’s stars – except for Draymond Green (back) – set to take the floor.
