Best NBA Player Prop Picks for Monday, February 12: Bank on a Huge Night from Maxey

While newly appointed starting guards Immanuel Quickley and Ayo Dosunmu are due to break out today, stray off of Jalen Brunson’s point total against a Houston defense that is elite at home.

Ready to win some money on the hardwood? Check out our best NBA player prop picks for Monday, February 12 right here. Best of luck!

G Tyrese Maxey (PHI) OVER 26.5 PTS

Maxey and the struggling Sixers who are 2-8 in their L10 take on the red-hot Cavaliers. For Philly to have a chance in this one, Tyrese has to be their lead scorer and put up 23 or more shots, something he has done in 3 of 5 games this month.

With a smaller backcourt of Donovan Mitchell and Darius Garland defending the All-Star, look for a great performance from Maxey who scored 30 against Cleveland in their first meeting this season.

G Immanuel Quickley (TOR) OVER 17.5 PTS

Quickley takes on a Spurs defense that ranks as the 2nd-worst defense against Point Guards in the association. Allowing over 26 points to the position, including 3.1 3PM per game, this is an ideal spot for a player who should average around 20 PPG the rest of the way.

This is a Raptors team that is attempting to find their identity with Quickley, Barrett, and Scottie Barnes as their core three. Look for a big night from Quickly in this one.

G Ayo Dosunmu (CHI) OVER 13.5 PTS

With Coby White doubtful tonight, dealing with a lingering lower-body issue, Ayo Dosunmu should step in and produce for Chicago. The Bulls combo guard is averaging 13.3 PPG this month through four games while playing at 33.7 MPG.

With Atlanta allowing 25 PPG on 3.3 3PM per game to the position, look for Ayo to continue to provide a spark for a Bulls team that is in desperate need of a breakout role player.

G Jalen Brunson (NYK) UNDER 30.5 PTS

While Jalen Brunson has been nothing short of fantastic this season for the 4th-place Knicks, his line is too steep against the Houston Rockets. Not only are the Rockets allowing under 110 PPG to opponents at home, but they are holding PGs to just 44% shooting from the field.

With lanky defenders starting to make an impact for Ime Udoka’s squad down south, this could be a trap game for New York as they are just 14-12 away from home with Houston holding down their fortress, 18-9 at home.
