Corrigan's Gambling Corner: NBA Player Props: Best Parlay Bets — Jan. 13, 2022

It is a light slate in the NBA tonight, and to be honest, outside of the Warriors vs the Bucks, it is not a great slate either. 

But, that does not mean that the board goes to sleep. Tonight, we are back with our three best props for some NBA action. We did not do so well last time, but I am feeling pretty good about our plays tonight. If you are looking to add a little more cash to your account for the NFL playoffs that kick off this weekend, maybe you throw a little something on a parlay of all three of these props. 

If you decide to gamble tonight, we would love you to tail our picks. We just ask that you please remember to always gamble responsibly. 

Here are tonight's winners.

Golden State Warriors at Milwaukee Bucks

Steph Curry Over 4.5 Threes Made (+102)

I am now 0-3 this season when betting on Steph Curry's three-pointer prop, but that will not stop me. I have said it once, and I will say it a million times, if you can get Curry's three-pointer prop at plus value, you need to take it. 

Curry has not hit this number in four straight games, and that is the longest streak of the season. In his previous 10 games before this four-game drought, Curry was averaging 5.2 threes per game. With Klay Thompson back in the mix for the Warriors, Curry's touches will go down, but he is still a threat to break out on any given night no matter who is on the court. 

The Bucks will be without Jrue Holiday and George Hill tonight, so that means the Bucks will have a very slim backcourt tonight. This is the perfect spot for Curry to have a big game. 

Again, I will only bet this prop if it is at plus value or if the number is low enough to where I HAVE to take it. Tonight, we are getting great odds on Curry's three-pointer prop. 

Oklahoma City Thunder at Brooklyn Nets 

James Harden Under 8.5 Rebounds (-130)

James Harden is currently averaging over eight rebounds per game for the second straight season. Now, things may change, but one thing is clear, and that is that Harden is one of the best rebounding guards in the NBA. 

While the Thunder are 29th in opponents' total rebounds per game, they are seventh in total rebounds per game. The reason Oklahoma City gives up so many rebounds is that they are a horrendous shooting team. On the season, they are 29th in effective field goal percentage (47.9%), 30th in three-point percentage (30.7%), shooting percentage (41.5%), and shooting efficiency (1.021). You do not need to be a basketball fan to know how awful that is.

Harden only pulled in six rebounds last time against the Thunder, and over his last five games, he is only averaging 6.4 rebounds per game.

Minnesota Timberwolves at Memphis Grizzlies

Ja Morant Over 38.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists (-115)

Over his last eight games, Ja Morant is averaging 29.1 points, 6.1 assists, and 6.1 rebounds per game. Morant has been playing like an MVP of the league, and he is a big reason why the Grizzlies have won 10 games in a row. 

The Timberwolves give up the 22nd-most rebounds per game and 24th-most assists per game. Going up against Anthony Edwards will be a tough matchup, but Morant is playing as well as anyone in the league right now. Minnesota only allows teams to shoot 33.9% from deep, but they are ranked 17th in opponents' effective field goal percentage, 23rd in opponents' two-point shooting percentage, and 22nd in opponents' shooting efficiency. 

Plain and simple, there is not a hotter team than the Grizzlies right now, and there is not a hotter player than Morant. I expect another big night for the Grizzlies' young star.
