Corrigan's Gambling Corner: 3 Best NBA Player Props: +604 Parlay Odds - March 29, 2022
Hello, and welcome back to the gambling corner. We are back with our three favorite player props in the NBA tonight.
There are just five games tonight, but we have an awesome slate of games. It all starts with the Milwaukee Bucks and the Philadelphia 76ers as both teams are battling for playoff seeding in a tight Eastern Conference.
However, we are not here to talk matchups. As always, we are here to give you the three-best player props of the night. I went 3-0 on my props last night, and I have been quietly money with my props during March.
We would love for you to tail our picks. If you do so, please always remember to gamble responsibly.

Los Angeles Lakers at Dallas Mavericks
Luka Doncic Over 3.5 Made Threes (+122)
The Lakers are really bad, and with LeBron James' dealing with an ankle injury that has him listed as doubtful tonight, they are going to be in for a world of hurt. Since the All-Star break, the Lakers have the fourth-worst defense in the NBA, and on the season, the Lakers' defense is ranked 26th in scoring, 21st in effective field goal percentage, and 20th in shooting percentage.
Although Dallas is a middle-of-the-road offense, they have arguably one of the best offensive threats in the NBA. Doncic continues to climb up the "best player in the league" rankings, and he is only 23-years-old. On the season, Doncic is putting up 27.9 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 8.5 assists per game on 45.4% shooting from the field, and 35% shooting from deep.
His three-point shooting percentage has taken a bit of a dip, but that has not stopped him from hucking up threes. Over Doncic's last 11 games, he is shooting 10.5 threes per game, and he is making 4.4 threes during that span. I have always said it, but the number of shots that a player takes is more important than the amount he is making, and on the season, Doncic is putting up 8.5 threes per game.
With how bad the Lakers' defense has been this season, and with all of their top players out tonight, getting this at plus value is free money.
Detroit Pistons at Brooklyn Nets
Cade Cunningham Over 20.5 Points (-116)
Although it is a little too late to make a run at the Rookie Of The Year, Cunningham has been awesome over the last few weeks. Since the All-Star break, Cunningham is putting up 21.3 points per game on 45.7% shooting from the field. He is still not an overly reliable shooter, but at the end of the day, we just need to put the ball through the basket, and Cunningham has done just that during the second half of the season.
He has only gone over this number twice in his last five games, but in those five games, he is putting up 19.4 points per game. Statistically, the Nets have a solid defense, but over Brooklyn's last five games, they are giving up 115 points per game.
The Nets' have a lot of great length on defense, and they only allow teams to shoot 45.3% from the field, but the offense is running through Cunningham as we close out the season, and with nothing to play for, the Pistons are going to turn into the Cunningham-show this last month of the season.
Utah Jazz at Los Angeles Clippers
Royce O'Neale Over 4.5 Rebounds (-142)
While O'Neale has not gone over this number in his last three games, there is a reason why we are not getting great value with this prop tonight. The Jazz are going to be without Hassan Whiteside tonight, and Rudy Gobert is listed as questionable after missing Utah's last game against Dallas. That leaves O'Neale as Utah's leading rebounder.
He is only averaging 4.9 rebounds per game this season, but he is usually overshadowed by two of the best rebounders in the NBA. Obviously, Utah's defense is going to take a hit tonight, but the Jazz have one of the best defenses in the NBA. On the season, the Jazz are ranked 10th in effective field goal percentage, 11th in shooting percentage, and fourth in rebounds per game.
The Clippers are one of the worst shooting teams in the NBA, so there are going to be a lot of rebounding opportunities tonight, and O'Neale should have no problems going over this number with an increased role.
