What is an NBA Prop Bet
NBA prop bets are bets on the statistical performance of players and teams rather than a traditional wager such as a team to win, cover, or see the points total go over/under the line. The most common or popular NBA prop bets will revolve around points, rebounds & assists, but there are countless opportunities to wager on NBA player props and NBA team props on each game.
NBA Player Prop Bets
NBA player prop bets are based on an individual player’s statistical performance during a particular game. Typically this will include one or more of the main player stats categories in points, rebounds, and assists.
Most of these NBA player prop bets are in a Total, or Over/Under, type of wager format such as Lebron James to score over or under 28.5 points in a game.
Most bookmakers will have a selection of player props for each game where you can often wager on points, assists, and rebounds individually with individual lines set for each player and each stat.
You can also wager on a player’s total performance with an over/under line set for a player’s total combined points, assists, and rebounds.
Select sportsbooks in some games will also offer odds on a player to score a double-double or triple-double, though this isn’t as widely available, typically held for the big names in the NBA.
Our experts analyze all of the player stats, form, trends and matchups to decipher the best spots for our NBA player prop bet plays, and highlight them right here on the NBA team prop bets page.
Popular Types Of NBA Player Props

- Points + Assists Combined
- Points + Rebounds Combined
- Points + Rebounds + Assists Combined
For example – If you wanted to bet on some Steph Curry player prop bets for an upcoming match, sportsbooks will likely have most of the above markets available. They may set his points line at over/under 29.5 points, his assists at over/under 4.5 and his rebounds at over/under 4.5 too. You can bet any of these markets as straight wagers, and some sportsbooks will allow you to add them to Same Game Parlays with other match props and lines. They will also likely have combined lines, where you can bet over or under the total combined figure of all three metrics. In the example above you’d expect the line to be around Over/Under 39.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists Combined. Not all sportsbooks offer all of the above markets, and the lines and odds will be different across different online sportsbooks, so be sure to always shop the odds as every point, assist or rebound can count in your favor, or against you. Our picks for the best NBA betting sites is a good place to start.
NBA Team Prop Bets
NBA team prop bets revolve around a team’s performance but not necessarily on the outcome of the game itself.
The most popular NBA team prop bets revolve around a team’s points, whether it be the first team to score or a race to 30 points, or an over/under line for one team’s points total.
Team props allow you to focus on the performance of one team rather than both. If you like a team in a spot, you can focus on them rather than the opposition.

This will of course depend on your personal preferences but there are definitely some things to keep in mind. Points, assists and rebounds are very popular player prop bets as the variance between these stats can be big from game to game for many players.
If there is a favourable match-up you might get good odds on a star player to score way above their average, or if a star player is up against a strong defender you might want to bet on them to rack up a lot of assists rather than points. If both teams are in poor shooting form a player prop rebounds could be the way to go.
