Hornets vs Nets Prop Bets Tonight
1. Seth Curry - Made Threes: Over 2.5 (-104)
Seth Curry played 22 minutes last night in what was his return from an ankle injury and ended up hitting five of his six three-point attempts. Keep in mind it was the fourth time in his last five games that he drained at least three shots from beyond the arc. The 31-year-old sharpshooter has another opportunity to wreak havoc tonight given Charlotte allows an opponent three-point percentage of 35.9% on the year (No. 23 in NBA). The chance of this game becoming a blowout is small and that should allow Curry to see a number of open looks. Back the over here.
2. LaMelo Ball - Points + Rebounds + Assists: Over 34.5 (-115)
This one comes down to what the Nets are capable of on defense more than anything else. Brooklyn gives up the sixth-most points (24.02) and third-most rebounds (6.95) to opposing point guards this season. That bodes well for LaMelo Ball's chances of putting together more than 34.5 points, rebounds and assists. The second-year pro has posted 30 or more PRA in six of his last seven games and is seeing 32.2 minutes on the court every night. Charlotte is going to be motivated to prove they shouldn't be overlooked in the Eastern Conference, which makes trusting its top offensive weapon a smart idea.
3. Kyrie Irving - Rebounds: Under 4.5 (-134)
Brooklyn fans are set to witness something on Sunday night that they haven't seen all season and that is Kyrie Irving playing in the Barclays Center. The 11-year pro could easily put on a show in front of his home crowd, but his rebounding prop simply seems a bit too high. Irving has posted less than 5 rebounds in five of his last six outings and is only averaging 4.5 boards on the year. It's worth noting that Charlotte allows the third-fewest rebounds to opposing point guards as well (6.03). Irving is likely going to be tasked with guarding the Hornets' top perimeter threats. That gives him little opportunity to cash this over.
