Adam Ronis' NBA player prop picks for Friday, January 14
There are 9 games in the NBA Friday night. Four games have a line of 3.5 points or fewer and 1 game has a double-digit line. Two games have a total of at least 223 points. As always, stay up to date on the latest injury news since lines can change and COVID-19 is making a big impact. Bets may be added throughout the day if there are additional spots that arise, so be sure to check back later in the day.
My record is 41-27 for the season. Here are my picks for tonight.
