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

There are also a lot of injuries to some key players around the league, but that means that there will be more opportunities for other players to shine. That is where we come and cash in on some undervalued props.
We would love for you to tail our picks. If you do so, please always remember to gamble responsibly.
Let's find some winners.

Golden State Warriors at Oklahoma City Thunder
Klay Thompson Over 2.5 Made Threes (-113)
For the most part, Thompson has struggled shooting from deep since his return to play. In his first 10 games back, Thompson is shooting 32.9% from deep, and he is hucking up 7.3 threes per game. He has had some good nights in his 11 games played, but his last one is certainly the best of the season.
In the Warriors' last game against the Kings, Thompson made seven threes on nine attempts. While the Thunder are a fairly solid defense team, and they are holding teams to under 30% shooting from deep over their last three, it's still Klay Thompson.
In his 11 games played this season, Thompson has hit this number six times, and over his last five, he is shooting 46.2% from beyond the arc.
Miami Heat at Washington Wizards
Kyle Kuzma Under 8.5 Rebounds (-122)
Kuzma is having a pretty solid first season with the Wizards. He is averaging 8.8 rebounds on the season, and over his 10 games, he is hauling in 9.5 rebounds per game. In his three games against the Heat this season, Kuzma is averaging 10.3 rebounds per game.
However, he has only gone over this total six times in his last eight games, and the Heat are one of the better teams at limiting rebounds. On the season, Miami is only allowing 49.9 total rebounds per game, 9.5 offensive rebounds per game, and 32.1 defensive rebounds per game.
Kuzma is in a bit of a funk, at least compared to how he has crashed the glass this season, and he will be going up against one of the best rebounders in Bam Adebayo, and one of the better rebounding wings in Jimmy Butler.
Toronto Raptors at Charlotte Hornets
Gary Trent Jr. Over 19.5 Total Points (-104)
Trent has not hit this number over his last two games, but prior to that, he set a Raptors team record for the most consecutive 30+ point games with five straight. During that stretch, he averaged 32.2 points per game on 49.6% shooting from the field and 51.7% from deep.
The Hornets also have one of the worst defenses in the NBA. On the season, their defense ranks 28th in scoring, 25th in effective field goal percentage, 20th in shooting percentage, and 26th in shooting efficiency.
In his lone game against the Hornets, Trent put up 32 points on 52.4% shooting from the field. Although Scottie Barnes and Fred VanVleet did not play in that game, Trent is still putting up the most shots per game on the team. There are not many hotter players than Trent right now, even though he is only averaging 17.5 over his last two.
If he continues to through up a lot of shots, which there is no reason to believe he will not do that, we have a really strong chance of going over the total.
New York Knicks at Utah Jazz
Julius Randle Under 18.5 Total Points (-106)
It seems as though the Julius Randle era in New York could be heading towards a divorce.
Now, he scored 32 points in that game against the Lakers, and over his last three he is putting up 22.3 points per game. But, Randle has gone under this total in 10 of his last 15, and with growing tension and trade rumors, I am fading Randle every night until he is no longer mad at the Knicks for whatever reason, or he is traded.
