Popular prop bets for NBA players

Point totals represent the most popular NBA props and you can bet against point-total lines for every player in every game at most online sportsbooks, which may give you more ways to customize your bet or a parlay compared to betting on NBA spreads.

Player point lines are quite often set based on season averages, giving you the opportunity to take advantage of what you know about individual matchups on a nightly basis. Bet the over when you think a player will have a big scoring night and the under when the matchup isn’t exactly a favorable one.

The same can also be said for NBA player props combo markets like the total points, assists, and rebound bets. These bets are a lot like adding a player to your fantasy team and you can take advantage of your matchup knowledge again, betting whether a player is in for a stat-stuffing kind of night or a relatively quiet one.

Which season-long NBA player props attract the most action?

Outside of NBA player game props, you can bet on season-long props and awards. Options include bets on:

  • MVP
  • Rookie of the Year
  • Most Improved Player
  • Defensive Player of the Year
  • Sixth Man of the Year
  • Coach of the Year
  • Regular Season Points, Assists, or Rebounds leader

The odds in these markets change regularly throughout the season. That means, for true contenders, the earlier you can get a bet down, the better the NBA player props odds will be.

NBA player prop bets worth avoiding

Some NBA player props are harder to predict than others, and should probably be avoided. First basket props are likely first on that list, as all the research in the world will still leave you guessing the outcome of this kind of bet.

Unless a matchup is really telling, steals and block lines are hard to predict as well. These stats are simply too sporadic to bet on with any real confidence.

NBA Finals and offseason player props

During the NBA Finals, you have the chance to bet on exclusive NBA Finals props like the NBA Finals MVP. Plus, in the offseason, you can still bet in certain NBA prop markets, including:

  • NBA Draft
  • NBA Free Agency
  • Coaching Vacancies

NBA draft props

The NBA draft is such a huge offseason event it makes sense there are several betting markets surrounding it. But since inside information may be available, not every state allows Draft betting. It remains to be seen if California sportsbooks will. If the state agrees, you’ll be able to bet on the following:

  • First pick
  • Top five
  • Top 10
  • First round
  • Draft position
  • Draft order (top three, top five)
  • College Conference totals
  • School totals

Rules for NBA props at legal CA sportsbooks

Each sportsbook has its own rules concerning player props and they are publicly posted. For example, FanDuel Sportsbooks’ terms and conditions clearly state that props are only valid if the player in question plays at some point in the game. Otherwise, all bets on the prop are returned.

Other sportsbooks might allow for postgame stat changes, void bets if an injury occurs, and count overtime stats while others do not. Read the fine print on your bets, understand the different rules, and nothing will come as a surprise to you when betting on NBA player props.
