Best player props for Thursday's NBA slate: Allen will shoot the 3
So last night we went after a guy who never takes a 3 with the NBA player prop. I feel like tonight we should focus on a guy that will definitely take the 3. It feels right. Plus who wants to watch a guy not taking 3s all night? Luckily for us, we’ve got a team in the Milwaukee Bucks that just let it fly. If you’re behind the arc, you should be shooting is the way they live their lives. There’s literally a sign in their locker room that says that (probably). It’s hard to not love a motto like that.
Also, don’t forget to check what our NBA analysts have backed with side and total picks for tonight’s games. Also, why not follow me on Twitter? Seems like a smart thing to do.
Grayson Allen over 2.5 made threes (+125)

We’re going over to FanDuel for this one since DraftKings took the 3-props down once Jrue Holiday was ruled out. I love when a book just alters their NBA player prop lines when a guy gets ruled out instead of just taking the whole game down. Feels like a power move. Also BetMGM still has this up but Allen is down to +110 there so I’m out.
Grayson Allen was born to be a 3-point shooter. I’m sure his parents knew it the second he was born. He just looks like a guy who can drain a triple. In his first game with the Bucks, he legit took 10 attempts from downtown and he only played 27 minutes. That’s kind of a lot.
The thing is, the Bucks look like they may be a let it fly type of team. It didn’t look like it was something Brooklyn was doing to force the Bucks into shooting from deep. They were just heaving them up there. The thing is, no team in the NBA saw their opponents take more 3s last season than the Miami Heat. They seem to want opponents to let it go from deep and that may work in our favor tonight with Allen. I think he hits at least 3 treys tonight.
This is my favorite NBA player prop of the day.
