Cameron Thomas Under 17.5 Points (-125)

Needless to say, the dynamic of the Brooklyn Nets has changed a great deal since the start of the season. One of the players who has benefitted from all of the chaos is 20-year-old Cameron Thomas. The former San Diego State Aztec has delivered upon being thrust into a larger role. While playing no fewer than 28 minutes over the Nets’ last four games, Thomas has scored at least 17 points in each outing. He cracked the 20-point threshold in three of those games and even dropped in 30 in one of them.

With James Harden out of town and Kevin Durant remaining sidelined, Thomas figures to have a solid role again on Saturday night. However, there are a few factors that point towards playing under the NBA player props line of 17.5 points. For starters, this is a road game, so Kyrie Irving will be available in the Brooklyn backcourt. Second, trade deadline acquisition Seth Curry could also make his debut which would impact Thomas’ playing time. Finally, the Nets face a Miami Heat outfit that boasts the sixth-best defensive efficiency ranking in the league.

Stephen Curry Over 6.5 Assists (-155)

Tonight’s NBA Saturday Primetime showdown on ABC features one of the best teams in the league in the Golden State Warriors. The Dubs’ superstar, Stephen Curry, has his NBA player props assist total set at 6.5. That marks is just barely above his per-game average of 6.4 on the season. While Curry’s shooting has taken a hit in the majority of the Warriors’ recent games, he has actually been having a greater impact as a playmaker.

Over his last six games played, the 33-year-old has dished out at least seven helpers five times. Curry has also posted double-digit assist totals in two of the last three contests. If the Los Angeles Lakers key in on Curry defensively, he is bound to have plenty of opportunities to feed open teammates again tonight. Considering that his assist total is set at 7.5 at other sportsbooks in the NBA betting props market, playing this over also aligns us with the market perception.

Jae Crowder Under 5.5 Rebounds (-115)

Since returning from a prolonged injury absence, Phoenix Suns forward Jae Crowder has been going nuts on the glass. He has successfully outperformed his season average of 5.3 boards in each of the last five games. The last three outings in particular have been very strong. Crowder posted two double-digit rebounding totals and had eight in the most recent game. With all of that being said, he would still need to exceed his per-game average by 0.7 rebounds in order to clear tonight’s NBA betting total of 5.5.

One key difference between the Suns now and in the past is that the frontcourt is fully healthy. Of course, Crowder is a part of that equation himself. However, each of Deandre Ayton, JaVale McGee and Bismack Biyombo are also available for tonight’s game. Considering that Phoenix faces the lowly Orlando Magic, starters like Crowder could wind up seeing reduced minutes in the event of a blowout.
