Wednesday's NBA schedule has nine games, including an exciting clash between the Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz. The Jazz are a 2.5-point home favorite and the over/under is set at 222.5 points.
Here's three of the best prop bets for the Nuggets-Jazz game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Nuggets vs Jazz Prop Bets Tonight
1. Nikola Jokic - Threes Made: Over 1.5 (+102)
There's a lot of value in Nikola Jokic's three-point prop tonight at plus odds. The NBA MVP candidate has been taking over games lately, posting a double-double in nine of his last 10 games. More importantly, he is beginning to heat up from beyond the arc. Jokic has nailed two or more three-pointers in four of his last five games and draws a great matchup on Wednesday night. Utah is allowing an opposing three-point percentage of over 40% over its last three contests. The Jazz also give up the fourth-most made threes to opposing centers in the NBA (1.25). The 26-year-old playmaker could cash this over by halftime.
2. Mike Conley - Assists: Over 6.5 (-120)
The Jazz have had to rely on veteran Mike Conley to dish out the ball with star Donovan Mitchell out due to a concussion. Of course, it has caused his assists numbers to take a jump. Conley is averaging 7.0 assists per game over his last three contests and now gets to face a Denver defense that allows the ninth-most opponent assists in away games this year (25.6). The Nuggets also give up the third-most assists to opposing point guards (9.0). The Jazz have looked horrible during their five-game losing streak and should be hungry to grab a win. Trust the numbers here and bet the over.
3. Royce O'Neale - Points: Over 7.5 (-102)
It's always risky to bet on a player that is only averaging 7.4 points per game on the season. However, this number is just a bit too low given Royce O'Neale's recent level of play. The Baylor product has scored at least 8 points in each of his last three games and is shooting 60% from three-point range during that span. O'Neale has also gotten the better of Denver in his last two matchups against the Nuggets. He scored 13 points on 5-of-12 shooting back on January 5 and scored 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting back on January 16. Back O'Neale to keep his success going on Wednesday night.
