Corrigan's Gambling Corner: 3 Best NBA Player Props: +567 Parlay Odds - March 25, 2022

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

If you are not interested in the Sweet 16 tonight, maybe you should take a look at the NBA slate. The matchups are not great, but as always, I love the player prop market tonight. With the season winding down, we have a lot of interesting player props due to injuries and teams resting their key guys before the playoffs.

We also can count on some superstars who are fighting for their playoff lives to turn it up to 11 these last few weeks of the season. Anyway, let's get right into the picks.

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

Philadelphia 76ers at Los Angeles Clippers

Joel Embiid Over 11.5 Total Rebounds (-114)

There are not many better rebounders in the NBA than Embiid. On the season, he is hauling in 11.3 rebounds per game, which is obviously just slightly below this number, but over his last nine games, he is averaging 12.7 rebounds per game, and he has hit this number in six of his last nine games.

In Embiid's lone game against the Clippers this season, he totaled 13 rebounds, and he also added 40 points. Normally, the number of points a player scores would mean nothing towards his rebounding prop, but it speaks to how poorly the Clippers are against the big man.

The Clippers' defense is ranked 23rd in rebounding, 24th in defensive rebounds per game, and last in offensive rebounds per game. Los Angeles also allows 49.6 points in the paint per game, which is 25th in the NBA.

Embiid will also have the pleasure of going against Ivica Zubac, who is not a great defensive/rebounding center. This is a matchup mismatch for the Clippers, and I expect Embiid to feast on the glass tonight.

Utah Jazz at Charlotte Hornets

Mike Conley Over 18.5 Points + Assists (-115)

Conley has been a big part of the Jazz's success over the last few seasons, but he is also extremely inconsistent. Over his last six games, Conley has hit this number three times, but in the three games that he did not hit this number, he is only averaging 8.3 points and 4.0 assists per game.

In total, Conely is averaging 14.3 points and 5.5 assists per game over his last six. In his lone game against the Hornets this season, Conley missed this number by the hook, but Utah is so deep that sometimes, you just do not get the touches. However, the Jazz will be without Danuel House and Bojan Bogdanovic, and that means there are going to be some shots to pass around, and Conley certainly will see more touches tonight.

It also helps that Charlotte is god-awful on defense. The Hornets' defense is ranked 28th in scoring, 29th in assists per game, and 24th in effective field goal percentage.

Dallas Mavericks at Minnesota Timberwolves

Luka Doncic Over 39.5 Points + Assists (-111)

Doncic sat out the Mavericks' last game against the Rockets, but he is expected to play tonight against a surging Timberwolves team. Minnesota has won 10 of their last 13, and they are covering at the same clip over their last 13.

Although Doncic has scored under 20 points in two of his last three games, he has still been lighting up the box scores lately. Over his last 13 games, Doncic is putting up 30.8 points and 7.1 assists per game on 46.8% shooting from the field. Those averages would leave us just slightly under the number, but the T-Wolves are still an average defense.

On the season, Minnesota's defense is ranked 21st in scoring, 26th in assists per game, and 20th in shooting efficiency. Doncic is such a special talent that I always feel comfortable taking one of his player props. He only totaled 15 points in his lone game against Minnesota, but he was able to add 10 assists per game.
