Scoring props feature prominently on a busy Monday slate, but we have you covered with our NBA player props and best bets for Monday based on the best NBA odds.
Sunday’s Super Bowl was one of the most exciting in recent memory, but it’s time to put that game in the rearview mirror and shift our focus to Monday’s 10-game slate in the Association.
Miles Bridges has been electric on offense and gets a great draw as the Charlotte Hornets host the Indiana Pacers. Jarrett Allen and the Cleveland Cavaliers face the Philadelphia 76ers, and Allen can take advantage of a shorthanded Sixers frontcourt that’s still missing Joel Embiid.
The Atlanta Hawks have been generous to opposing guards in the scoring department, and we’ll go back to the well with a Coby White points prop as the Chicago Bulls travel to Atlanta. We’ll cap off tonight’s player props with another shorthanded frontcourt matchup as the New York Knicks and Precious Achiuwa face the Houston Rockets.

Monday’s NBA player props
Miles Bridges Over 37.5 points + rebounds + assists vs. Pacers (-118 via FanDuel) ⭐⭐⭐
The tandem of Bridges and rookie Brandon Miller has been electric on offense, and we’re betting on Bridges’ continued success in a highly favorable matchup with the Pacers. Indiana is middle-of-the-pack in rebounds allowed, but the Pacers allow the third most points per game (122.5), and scoring is Bridges’ bread and butter.
Over his last 16 games, Bridges has averaged 34.4 PRAs. Though he hit at least 38 in only four of them, two have come in his previous four games, and we can’t ignore how great this matchup is. Bridges is playing at home tonight, and he’s averaged 35 PRAs at home compared to 28.7 on the road. Unsurprisingly, LaMelo Ball is out again, which means the scoring, rebounding, and assist opportunities will be plentiful.
Jarrett Allen Over 31.5 points + rebounds + assists vs. 76ers (-111 via FanDuel) ⭐⭐⭐
Without Joel Embiid, Philly is an entirely different team defensively, and Allen should be able to take advantage of this favorable matchup. The 76ers have allowed the third most points to opponents (122.3) and the seventh most rebounds (52.3) over the last three games. Allen went for 26 points, 13 rebounds, and three assists against the 76ers in his first meeting this season, and he posted those numbers with Embiid in the lineup.
Allen has averaged 31.9 PRAs across his last 13 games, recording at least 32 in six. His home/road splits are nearly identical, and he’s hit this mark in 15 of 46 appearances on the season overall. The big man finished with 35 PRAs against Toronto in his last game out, and he’s in a great position to cash for a second straight contest against a depleted Philly frontcourt.
Coby White Over 23.5 points vs. Hawks (-110 via bet365) ⭐⭐⭐⭐
The motto for this article over the last week has been “bet the Over on guards against the Hawks.” We hit on James Harden and Jalen Green against Atlanta, so why not go back to the well with White? The young guard has scored at least 24 points in five of his last nine and averaged 23 points in that span.
Atlanta allows the second most points to opponents overall (123.7) and the most points at home (125.3). We’re also getting in on the action for Ayo Dosunmu’s points prop, which is set at 13.5 across our featured books. He’s averaged 16.8 points per game across his last five starts and has gone for at least 14 points in four of them. The best odds on Dosunmu’s points prop are -105 at DraftKings.
Precious Achiuwa Over 24.5 points + rebounds + assists vs. Rockets (-115 via DraftKings) ⭐⭐⭐
The already-shorthanded Knicks may be missing another key member of the frontcourt rotation tonight. Isaiah Hartenstein sat out New York’s last game with an Achilles injury, and he’s listed as questionable tonight against the Rockets. Jericho Sims is probable after missing three games due to an illness, but Hartenstein’s potential absence would be most beneficial for Achiuwa.
Achiuwa has started seven in a row, and he’s averaged 40.3 minutes per contest, highlighting how much confidence coach Thibodeau has in him. In those seven games, he’s averaged 23.1 PRAs, hitting at least 25 in three of them and 24 in one more. On the other side of the court, Rockets’ starting center Alperen Sengun is questionable due to a back injury after sitting out Houston’s last game. Achiuwa is in a great spot to see big minutes yet again, and he could be facing an equally shorthanded frontcourt. We’ll take the Over here.
