The 2022-2023 NBA season continues on Monday, December 5, with 16 teams set scheduled to play. Take a look at three strong player props for tonight's action, featuring Giannis Antetokounmpo, Luka Doncic, and Paolo Banchero.
NBA Player Prop #1: Giannis Antetokounmpo Over 30.5 Points (-115)
Giannis Antetokounmpo has been his usual dominant self to begin the 2022-2023 NBA season. The Milwaukee Bucks star is second in the league in scoring, averaging 31.8 points per game while shooting 54.2% from the field. Giannis has been dominant over his past six games, scoring at least 30 points in each contest while averaging 36.3 points per game on 60.9% shooting from the field over that span.
Facing an Orlando Magic team that has struggled with interior defense this season should play right into Giannis' hands. Look for the two-time MVP to score at least 31 points for the 12th time in just 19 games this season.
NBA Player Prop #2: Luka Doncic Over 31.5 Points (-122)
The only player ahead of Giannis Antetokounmpo on the points per game leaderboard thus far? Luka Doncic. The Dallas Mavericks star is averaging 33.4 points per game while shooting 50.6% from the field. Furthermore, Doncic has scored at least 32 points in 14 contests already this season.
While he will be facing a Phoenix Suns defense that ranks second in opponents' points per game and second in defensive rating, don't expect Doncic to struggle. Look for the three-time All-Star to score at least 32 points.
NBA Player Prop #3: Paolo Banchero Over 18.5 Points (-115)
Paolo Banchero was the first overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft. It's safe to say that the Orlando Magic are likely not having buyer's remorse, as the rookie has lived up to the hype thus far. Banchero leads all rookies in points per game, as he is averaging 21.8 points per game while shooting 46.0% from three-point range.
Banchero has been performing at a consistent level all year, as he has scored at least 19 points in 13 of his 17 games played this season. Look for the former Duke Blue Devil to continue to build his Rookie of the Year case by once again finishing with at least 19 points.
