NBA Saturday calls for 18 teams in action starting at 5:00 pm ET. Let’s dive into the best NBA player prop bets.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, PG, OKC, Under 1.5 made threes (-104)

Odds available at Caesars Sportsbook at time of publishing.

When thinking of Shai Gilegeous-Alexander’s game, our brain tends to jump to his ability to touch the paint and get to the foul line, not his 3-point ability. Even though he is averaging over 31 points per game, he is making fewer than 1.4 triples while taking less than 4 attempts per game.

Gilgeous-Alexander and the Oklahoma City Thunder will take on the Memphis Grizzlies on the road as more than 10-point favorites. It’s well known that Alexander’s rotation is playing all of the 1st and 3rd quarters while then checking in at around the 6-minute mark of both the 2nd and 4th quarter. I’ll take my chances that Alexander stays under this line for the 40th time in 67 games this season.

Vasilije Micic, PG, CHA, Under 6.5 assists (-125)

Odds available at DraftKings Sportsbook at time of publishing.

We are diving into the +EV side of sports betting. Vasilije Micic’s assists are listed at 6.5 assists on almost every book. The under is heavily juiced, with FanDuel coming in at -136 for Micic to stay under 7 assists. DraftKings is kind enough to give us this under at 11 cents cheaper.

Micic and the Hornets will travel to Philadelphia as 10.5-point underdogs while having the lowest point total of the slate at 208.5 points. The 76ers without Joel Embiid have played at the 2nd-slowest pace in basketball the last 10 games and will look to hold Micic under 7 assists for the 2nd straight game after recording 3 assists 8 opportunities.
