Best NBA Player Props for Wednesday, March 6: Kuminga Should Fill Up the Stat Sheet Against Milwaukee

Happy Wednesday, everyone! The NBA is treating us to an eight-game slate tonight, and several of these games should provide some fantastic entertainment. When looking ahead to these games, we wanted to target player props from games we believe will be close throughout.

When there is a close game, the starters will play more minutes, giving the players better chances to hit their respective lines. With that in mind, let’s look at our four favorite props from tonight’s action, all of which can be found on Underdog!

Darius Garland OVER 22.5 Points

This is, by far, our favorite prop on the slate. While the Cleveland Cavaliers aren’t happy that Donovan Mitchell is sidelined due to injury, Darius Garland has greatly benefitted from his absence.

This has allowed him to develop a much larger role on this team, and to this point, he has taken full advantage. Garland averages over 24 PPG in his career with Mitchell out, and we anticipate that he will fly over this total tonight.

Plus, he’s scored 23+ in three of his past four games against the Atlanta Hawks, a trend we think will continue.

John Collins UNDER 10.5 Rebounds

John Collins has been a beast on the boards all season. He is a greatly impactful player for the Utah Jazz, one of the major reasons for the team’s success this year.

Despite this success, we’re fading his rebound total tonight against the Chicago Bulls. He hasn’t had much luck against them during his career, never achieving more than 11 rebounds in the 11 games he’s played against them.

This is a large enough sample size for us, and as a result, we’re taking the under in this spot.

Jonathan Kuminga OVER 8.5 Rebounds & Assists

Tonight’s game between the Milwaukee Bucks and Golden State Warriors should be a hard-fought battle. We expect both teams to put their best foot forward, and as a result, this should be a great game.

Look for Jonathan Kuminga to be a big factor throughout, dishing the ball to his teammates, and also being a menace on the boards. We’re confident that he will have closer to 12 rebounds and assists tonight, meaning that he should surpass this total with ease.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander UNDER 31.5 Points

SGA is one of the best scorers in the league and a key contributor to the Oklahoma City Thunder’s roster. However, we expect the Thunder to destroy Portland tonight, meaning that SGA could see limited minutes.

Even though he’s a great pure scorer, we are fading his point total tonight, especially since it’s over 30.
