ThriveFantasy 1-11-21 NBA Prop Bets Picks

on

We are back with the ThriveFantasy 1-11-21 NBA Prop Bets Picks.

Below I give you five plays using the ThriveFantasy app that I believe will or will not exceed the NBA betting projections generated from the app.

Each player is given a projected generated by NBA Prop Bets, and our job is to find those winners.

Two players who should exceed the projections, two players who won’t and will underperform. I will also give you one “ICE” pick.

An ICE pick is a player chosen in case any of your players you have the prop bet for are a last-minute scratch, your ICE pick comes into play.

There are eight NBA games tonight so let’s get to it!

ThriveFantasy 1-11-21 NBA Prop Bets Picks

Julius Randle – New York Knicks OVER 12.5 Rebounds

Randle is playing at an extremely high level averaging a double-double in points and rebounds. 22.6 and 12. He gets the OVER here for one reason. The matchup is against the Charlotte Hornets.

The Hornets give up the 29th most points and rebounds to opposing forwards and coming off a huge loss to the Denver Nuggets, the Knicks are going to play with and extra spark. He’s my OVER pick for tonight.

Andre Drummond – Cleveland Cavaliers OVER 1.5 Blocks

Drummond is still playing at a very high level. He is averaging 1.5 blocks a game and is coming off a game where he had a block against the a very good Milwaukee Bucks team.
The over pick is because tonight’s matchup is a lot easier against a not so good Memphis Grizzlies team.

Drummond should and will dominate the paint against a 17th ranked Grizzlies team in giving up rebounds and blocks. Drummond will cruise in this prop.

Jonas Valanciunas – Memphis Grizzlies- UNDER 28.5 Points and Rebounds

On the short year, Valanciunas is averaging 14.2 points and 12.6 rebounds per game. That is under what the projected prop is, and the matchup with Drummond certainly isn’t an easy one.

The Cavs do give up the 21st most points to opposing big-men but the matchup with Drummond is a big fade for me. No way JV exceeds this prop, and I’m going UNDER here.

John Collins – Atlanta Hawks UNDER 18.5 Points

Collins is an elite player. He is averaging 17.2 points per game on the year, but the under pick here is because he has to go up against Philadelphia 76ers big, Joel Embiid. Embiid will and should bully Collins all night long and make life miserable for Collins.

If Collins didn’t have this matchup, I’d take the over. Collins has also only scored over 18 points in three games this season. Fade Collins and take the under.

ICE PICK

Dwight Howard – Philadelphia 76ers UNDER 1.5 Blocks and Steals

Dwight is playing like he’s in his prime. However, he is averaging 0.7 steals and 0.6 blocks this year. More importantly, Dwight has only blocked two shots in one game this season and has just two steals all year.

Howard still has a role in the NBA but the blocks and steals just aren’t there this year.
