NBA Player Props, February 25, 2023

NBA Player Props, February 25, 2023

Jordan Clarkson over 4.5 assists (-140), DraftKings

Following the Mike Conley trade, Jordan Clarkson has become one of the primary facilitators for the Utah Jazz, ranking second on the team with 4.8 assists and 10.0 potential assists across his last five contests. On February 15, Collin Sexton left the game early against the Memphis Grizzlies, playing only four minutes. Clarkson, being forced into a higher-usage role, had six assists on 10 potential assists that night, and followed it up with six assists on 12 potential assists in his most recent trip to the floor against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Tonight, Clarkson gets a favorable matchup against a San Antonio Spurs team that ranks 24th in opponent assists allowed per game across the last month of action. Per CourtIQ, Clarkson is averaging 6.66 assists per 36 minutes of action this year when both Sexton and Mike Conley are off of the floor. Take the over here and live with the result.

Markelle Fultz over 20.5 points + assists (-115), FanDuel

Since January 30, Markelle Fultz is averaging 15.8 points and 5.5 assists across a span of 10 games. In that span, he ranks second on the team, with 13.1 field goal attempts per game – establishing himself as a player with a high floor from night to night. In his last 10 games, he has zero games with fewer than 10 shot attempts. In his last nine games, he has scored at least 15 points seven times, with only one game scoring fewer than 14 points. In the last month, he has dished as many as 10 assists in a game, and has only one game with fewer than three assists. On Saturday, Fultz has a favorable matchup against an Indiana Pacers team that ranks 27th in defensive efficiency and 29th in opponent assists per game since January 25. Take the over in this spot.

Brandon Ingram over 24.5 points (-125), DraftKings

Entering play, Brandon Ingram has eclipsed this market number in seven consecutive games, including four games with at least 30 points. Since February 2, Ingram ranks eighth in the entire league in points per game, and his 21.9 field goal attempts per contest trail only Damian Lillard in that span. Simply, with Ingram’s recent volume, there is little reason for the sportsbooks to continue pricing his points prop this low. In recent seasons, Ingram has averaged more points per game on the road compared to at home, meaning that there is little concern regarding the fact that the New Orleans Pelicans are traveling to Madison Square Garden for this matchup. Facing a New York Knicks team that will be on the second day of a back-to-back set, expect Ingram to find success on Saturday – take the over.
