Corrigan's Gambling Corner: 3 Best NBA Player Prop Bets: +685 Parlay Odds - Feb. 11, 2022

Hello, and welcome back to the gambling corner. We are back with our three favorite NBA player props of the night.

The trade deadline is now behind us, and that means we have a couple of incomplete teams playing tonight. Not every team is going to be short-handed, but there is always a ton of value on the board after the deadline. The All-Star break is also coming up, so we may see some key players' minutes be slightly restricted as these playoff teams gear up for a second-half run. 

We would love for you to tail our picks. If you do so, please always remember to gamble responsibly.

Let's find some winners.

Cleveland Cavaliers at Indiana Pacers 

Chris Duarte Over 15.5 Points (+100)

The Pacers are in full-blown tank mode. 

Along with Domantas Sabonis and Caris LeVert, Justin Holiday, Jeremy Lamb, and Torrey Craig were among those that the Pacers shipped out before the trade deadline. They did get Tyrese Haliburton back in the Sabonis trade, and he is available to play, but the Pacers are thin tonight as they try and craft a team for the rest of the season. 

Duarte has been very solid in his rookie season, and over his last four games, he is putting up 17.5 points per game on 46% shooting from the field, and 50% from deep. With all of the trades that the Pacers made, Duarte should continue to see his minutes increase, and that gives us more opportunities. 

All eyes will be on Haliburton tonight, but at +100 odds, Duarte has some incredible value with his points prop tonight.

Oklahoma City Thunder at Philadelphia 76ers

Matisse Thybulle Over 6.5 Points (-108)

Thybulle is more known for his defensive abilities, but with the trade for James Harden, the 76ers are going to be a little thin tonight as Seth Curry was included in the deal, and Harden will not be available until next week.

Not a lot will change tonight, but the 76ers are going to need to find someone to pick up the slack, and while Thybulle is not a great scorer, he is making the most of his limited shots per game. Over his last five games, he is only taking 2.8 shots per game, but he is shooting 71.4% from the field and 70% from deep.

The amount of shots he puts up per game is concerning, and the fact that he has not eclipsed double-digit points since Jan. 10 makes me nervous, but over his last three games, he is averaging 30.4 minutes per game, and that trend should continue as the 76ers wait for their new players to start getting into the fold. 

Orlando Magic at Utah Jazz

Donovan Mitchell Over 4.5 Rebounds (+104)

Rudy Gobert is close to a return to action, but he is still doubtful tonight, and Mitchell has picked up the slack on the glass in his absence. 

Mitchell has always been a solid rebounding guard, but over his last five games, he is hauling in 6.6 rebounds per game, and he has gone over this number in all but one of his last five games. He has only gone over this number 20 times in his 43 games this season, but the Magic give up the 24th-most rebounds per game and the 27th-most defensive rebounds per game. 

Obviously, Mitchell is the star player for Jazz, especially with Gobert sidelined, and with how well he is rebounding the ball lately, he should once again clean the glass against one of the worst rebounding teams in the NBA.
