Best NBA Betting Player Props for Tonight, 2/15

All NBA betting player props odds are taken from BetOnline Sportsbook

Joel Embiid Under 12.5 Rebounds (-111)

On the season to date, Joel Embiid is one of only ten total players averaging over 11 rebounds per game. However, his per-game clip of 11.2 boards is over one full rebound below tonight’s NBA player props line of 12.5. While Embiid has finished with rebound totals of 12, 19 and 14 in the Philadelphia 76ers’ last three games respectively, none of those three opponents can claim a Rebound Rate the caliber of the Boston Celtics.

Entering Tuesday night’s tilt, the Celtics rank eighth in the metric. So far this season, the C’s have secured over 51% of all available rebounds in their games. In a matchup against a loaded Boston frontcourt, Embiid figures to be hard-pressed to secure the 13 boards necessary to go over his prop total. Considering that several sportsbooks have the odds for this NBA betting props offering juiced to the under, bettors can score solid value in the -111 price at BetOnline Sportsbook.

Goga Bitadze Over 4.5 Rebounds (-155)

Needless to say, the Indiana Pacers have elected to go a different route with their frontcourt rotation than many believed they would following the trade deadline. The result has been much less playing time and production for 22-year-old Goga Bitadze. Tristan Thompson remains in town largely due to the injury absences of Myles Turner and Isaiah Jackson. However, the decision to play both him and Terry Taylor double-digit minutes has led to Bitadze falling short of expectations. Despite this, it is not time to write off betting over on his NBA player props just yet.

Bitadze did manage to post decent numbers in just 19 minutes on Sunday. Perhaps he will get a bump in playing time this evening on the heels of that effort. The Pacers could certainly use a seven-footer on the floor tonight in a matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks. Thanks to Bitadze’s dwindling minutes and poor showings back when he was getting more run, his NBA betting props totals have come crashing down. It’s impossible not to play over a line of 4.5 rebounds that is two less than sportsbooks were listing less than a week ago.

Terance Mann Under 12.5 Points (-109)

With Norman Powell being the latest Los Angeles Clippers player to fall victim to the injury bug, Terance Mann has been thrust right back into a key role. He has responded in an impressive fashion and enters Tuesday evening’s contest on the heels of back-to-back games scoring over 20 points. In fact, Mann has scored no fewer than 13 points in each of the last four contests. He has successfully topped his season scoring average of 10.5 points in each of them. However, he has also shot at least 50% in all four of those games.

Mann’s recent shooting clip does not figure to be sustainable moving forward. If there was ever a game in which Mann’s shooting numbers should be expected to come back down to Earth, it would be tonight. The Clippers face a Phoenix Suns outfit that ranks third in defensive efficiency this season. The tough matchup leads to value in betting under an NBA player props total that sits two full points above Mann’s per-game scoring average. While Powell’s absence is certainly a factor, he did only join the Clippers 11 days ago.
