Corrigan's Gambling Corner: 5 Best NBA Player Prop Bets: +2079 Parlay Odds - Feb. 9, 2022
Hello, and welcome back to the gambling corner. We are back with our five favorite NBA player props of the night.
It is a light slate tonight, but there is a lot of value on the board. We are only picking props from two total games, but my confidence level is as high as it can be.
The All-Star break is coming up, as is the trade deadline. That means key players will be held out or limited as we approach the second half of the season. This means that there are a lot of props tonight that have some great value.
We would love for you to tail our picks. If you do so, please always remember to gamble responsibly.
Let's find some winners.

San Antonio Spurs at Cleveland Cavaliers
Isaac Okoro Under 9.5 Points (-118)
The Cavaliers did not draft Okoro to be a scorer. He has turned into an exceptional wing defender and an important piece to a surging Cavaliers team. With the trade for Caris LeVert, Cleveland added that "pure scorer" they have been missing since Collin Sexton was lost for the year. Okoro will not be wiped out of the rotation, but he will certainly lose some minutes.
Over his last six games, Okoro is averaging 8.0 points per game on 50% shooting from the field. He has only gone over this number 15 times in his 39 games played. With LeVert getting his first action with the Cavs tonight, Okoro will not be asked to do much on offense. Personally, I think Okoro being that defensive presence off the bench is his best role, and LeVert can carry the scoring load.
Jarrett Allen Over 26.5 Points + Rebounds (-116)
Ever since Allen was snubbed of an All-Star appearance, he has been a monster. In the two games since the All-star reserves were announced, Allen is putting up 22 points and 19.5 boards. In his first game since being snubbed, he put up 29 points and 22 rebounds against the Hornets.
San Antonio is not a very good defensive team, and they allow the third-most points in the paint, and they are ranked 23rd in opponents' rebounds per game, 24th in opponents' defensive rebounds per game, and 29th in offensive rebounds allowed per game.
While the addition of LeVert will certainly restrict the number of shots Allen gets up, he is such an important piece for the Cavs, and with how well he is playing, there is nothing that tells me that the Spurs are going to be the team that stops Allen.

Golden State Warriors at Utah Jazz
Stephen Curry Over 25.5 Points (-116) + Over 6.5 Assists (+110)
Over his last six games, Curry is averaging 7.8 assists per game, and he has gone over this number in four straight games, and eight of his last 10 games. While the Jazz are ranked second in opponents' assists per game, Curry has become a great distributor of the basketball over the last couple of years.
We know that Curry can score, and with Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala, Draymond Green, and James Wiseman out tonight, his number is going to get called a lot.
Over his last five, Curry is shooting 48.8% from the field and 47.1% from deep. He has had a couple of clunkers recently, but he is still finding ways to score and get involved. The Warriors are missing a lot of production tonight, and Curry has gone away from just shooting recently, and has taken a playmaking role.
Royce O'Neale Over 6.5 Points (-126)
O'Neale has not gone over this number in his last two games, but he is averaging 9.3 points over his last six games. The Warriors do have the best defense in the NBA, but with Rudy Gobert out tonight, and the Warriors being forced to play small due to their own injuries, O'Neale is going to have to step up tonight.
On the season, O'Neale is averaging 7.5 points per game, and he has gone over this number 28 times in his 50 games played. Baring the Warriors completely neutralizing the inside, this one feels like a slam dunk (pun intended).
