Corrigan's Gambling Corner: 3 Best NBA Player Prop Bets: +672 Parlay Odds - Feb. 15, 2022
Hello, and welcome back to the gambling corner. We are back with our three favorite NBA player props of the night.
There are some tremendous matchups tonight, but my attention is solely on the props for the night, and there are some good ones. The All-Star break is coming up, and I always find that the prop market before the break has some really good value bets.
I would also like to point out that I am on a 5-1 run with my props, and when I get hot, my picks are automatic. Jump on this money train while you can, because I am feeling really good right now.
We would love for you to tail our picks. If you do so, please always remember to gamble responsibly.
Let's find some winners.

Dallas Mavericks at Miami Heat
Luka Doncic Over 29.5 Points (-112)
Doncic has been, well, very good since the Mavericks shipped Kristaps Porzingis to the Wizards. In the two games since the trade, Doncic is averaging 48 points per game on 54.2% shooting from the field, and 48.1% shooting from deep.
He also added 33 points against the Pistons in the game before the trade deadline. His hot streak is not just limited to his last three games as he is scoring 32.4 points over his last 10 games played.
The Heat are a very good defensive team, but with Tyler Herro and Markieff Morris out and Jimmy Butler questionable, the Heat are going to be thin tonight. Sometimes, you just have to roll with the hot hand, and nobody is hotter than Doncic at this moment. The number is a little high, but with how well he is scoring lately, you have to keep looking at Doncic's scoring prop.
Cleveland Cavaliers at Atlanta Hawks
Evan Mobley Over 21.5 Points + Rebounds (-106)
The Hawks continue to be without John Collins due to a heel injury, and although Clint Capela has picked up his production in Collins' absence, he will have to deal with Mobley, Jarrett Allen, and Kevin Love tonight.
Capela is hauling in 16 rebounds since Collins went down with an injury, but the best pound-for-pound rebounding team in the NBA is coming into town tonight. The Cavs' rookie sensation is currently in a cold streak as he is only averaging 10.8 points and 6.6 rebounds over his last five, but that just means that he is going to be undervalued tonight.
Allen has been Cleveland's best big man as of late, but since he was named as an injury replacement in the All-Star game for James Harden, his revenge tour is over, and it is time for Mobley to reintroduce himself as one of the best, young big men in the NBA.
Atlanta only allows 50.7 rebounds per game, but they do not rebound the ball that well as a team. On the season, Atlanta is ranked 21st in total rebounds per game, and 15th in defensive rebounds per game. The Hawks have relied on Capela to pick up the slack lately, and he has done just that. However, with the Cavs coming into town, Capela is going to have his hands full, and one of Cleveland's big men will feast tonight.
Why not Mobley?
Los Angeles Clippers at Phoenix Suns
Deandre Ayton Over 9.5 Rebounds (+110)
Since returning to the lineup, Ayton has only gone over this total twice and is averaging 9.0 rebounds since he returned seven games ago. However, his rebounding prop has some serious value tonight.
On the season, Ayton is averaging 10.3 rebounds per game, and he has gone over this total 20 times in his 35 games. Ayton did go over the total last game, and he will be taking on a Clippers team that is very bad at rebounding.
Los Angeles is ranked 25th in total rebounds per game, 30th in offensive rebounds allowed per game, and they are giving up the 23rd-most total rebounds per game. While Ayton is still trying to find the consistency he had earlier in the season, he went over the total last game against a bad rebounding team in Orlando. There is little reason to believe he won't do the same against an even worse rebounding team.
