Friday NBA Player Props: Dec. 10
Bucks F Giannis Antetokounmpo
The Bucks are coming off a surprising loss to the shorthanded Heat in which Giannis played well below his standards. He’s primed to bounce back tonight at Houston, which plays at the fourth-fastest pace and allows the fourth-most total RPG at home this season. The Rockets allow the most fastbreak PPG and are coughing up 50 PPG in the paint over their last three outings. Houston ranks third in offensive rating during a 7-game win streak, so Giannis should get enough playing time down the stretch to top 26.5 points with ease and potentially flirt with a triple double (+1500 at FanDuel) – which he’s done in each of his last two trips to Houston.
Celtics F Jayson Tatum
This is a tough matchup for Tatum against Mikal Bridges and the Suns’ elite defense, but even a minor dip in his production could still get him Over the combined prop of 35.5 points and rebounds. He’s averaging 31.4 PPG and 10 RPG over his last five contests and has taken off during Boston’s annual west coast road trip. When Jaylen Brown is out, Tatum’s efficiency skyrockets and he’s dropped 29-plus points in seven straight games under those circumstances. Tatum has a 32% usage rate over his last four meetings with Phoenix and should be able to top 27.5 points in another high-profile matchup.
