Corrigan's Gambling Corner: NBA Player Prop Bets: +641 Parlay Odds - March 11, 2022

Hello, and welcome back to the gambling corner. We are back with our three favorite bets in the NBA tonight.

Obviously, the NBA is not getting a lot of love this week because of conference tournament week in college hoops. However, there are still some great props available, and just because we are focused on college basketball doesn't mean we can't search for some winners in the Association.

All you have to do is relax, place some bets, watch some hoops, and have a damn good night. We would love for you to tail our picks. If you do so, please always remember to gamble responsibly.

Toronto Raptors at Phoenix Suns

Devin Booker Over 36.5 Points + Assists + Rebounds (-125)

Over his last four games, Booker is averaging 27 points, 8.3 dimes, and 5.8 rebounds per game on 50% shooting from the field. He has gone over this total in all four games, and since Chris Paul was knocked out of action for a few weeks, Booker has taken his game to the next level.

Booker was obviously going to have to pick up the slack with Paul out, especially on offense. It is not because the Suns are a bad offensive team. In fact, they are one of the more effective offenses in the NBA. But Paul means so much to this team. His absence in the lineup changes the dynamic of this team.

Still, the Suns are the best team in the NBA, and Booker is the main reason for that. Tonight, he will go up against a Raptors team that allows 25 assists and 52.4 rebounds per game. Booker only combined for 24 points, assists, and rebounds in his only matchup against the Raptors, but he has been playing exceptionally well without Paul in the lineup, and he will continue that streak tonight.

Los Angeles Clippers at Atlanta Hawks

Clint Capela Over 10.5 Rebounds (-104)

We are getting some tremendous value here.

Capela is one of the better rebounders in the NBA, and his rebounding total feels a little low to me tonight. Over his last seven games, Capela is averaging 11.6 rebounds per game, and he has gone over this total in five of his last seven.

On the season, Capela is averaging 12 rebounds per game, and he has hit this total in 39 of his 56 games played this season. Los Angeles has a solid defense, but they are not a good rebounding team. The Clippers' defense is ranked 23rd in total rebounds allowed per game, 24th in defensive rebounds per game, and dead last in offensive rebounds per game. Luckily for us, Capela averages 3.8 offensive rebounds per game, which ranks him 5th in the NBA this season.

Charlotte Hornets at New Orleans Pelicans

LaMelo Ball Over 2.5 Made Threes (+110)

I would not call Ball a lethal three-point shooter just yet, but he is getting really close. He still needs to work on his consistency, but Ball has hit this total in exactly half the amount of games he has played this season, and he is shooting 36.4% from deep this season.

He has only hit this number twice in his last five games, but he has the advantage of going up against a Pelicans team that is not very good at defending the three-point line. The Pelicans allow teams to shoot 35.6% from deep, and teams are making 12.7 threes per game against New Orleans, which is towards the bottom of the league.

While Ball has struggled to make threes lately, he is putting up 7.3 threes per game over his last 10. I have said it a million times, but when taking a players' three-point prop, the thing I like to pay attention to is how many threes they are shooting, not how many they are making.

If Ball puts enough shots up, he should easily go over this total.
