Best NBA Player Prop Bets Today for Wednesday, April 17

Yesterday’s article scored a beautiful 2-0 sweep (3-0 if you tailed the ladder on Discord), and I’m hoping to roll that momentum forward into tonight. With two play-in games on tap, I’ve researched some spots worth getting exposure to with the help of OddsShopper Premium. Let’s dive into my NBA player prop picks for Coby White and Clint Capela. I also recommend you read my NBA play-in tournament betting guide.

NBA Player Props Today: Picks for Coby White & More

Coby White Player Prop

The Chicago Bulls may have lost Zach LaVine earlier in the season, but the emergence of point guard Coby White has helped them make up the difference tremendously. White averaged a career-best 19.1 points per game this season on shooting splits of 45/38/84, marking career-highs in overall field goal percentage and 3-point percentage.

White’s impact becomes clearer when filtering out games he played alongside LaVine. He averaged an impressive 20.6 points per game on splits of 45/37/85 without LaVine, managing to maintain his improved shooting splits despite his usage rate increasing by 2.5%. White now gets a matchup with the soft Atlanta Hawks defense.

The Hawks ended the regular season by struggling mightily against opposing point guards like White. They coughed up the second-most points per game to the position over the final 15 games (28.6). The two-man lineup combo of Trae Young and Dejounte Murray recorded an abysmal 121.3 defensive rating.

White averaged 20.3 points per game versus the Hawks this season, all games he played without LaVine. I bought him to go over the 19.5, which he did in two of those contests. It also helps that the Hawks will be without two of their better defensive weapons, Saddiq Bey and Onyeka Okongwu. We’re getting the over 19.5 for only -113 at FanDuel, which is beating the -144 at Pinnacle, a sharp book.

Clint Capela Player Prop

We’ll stick with tonight’s late game for our other NBA player prop pick. We’re going with Clint Capela under 12.5 rebounds for -108 at SuperBook (or -110 at Hard Rock; if you don’t have either book, click here for the best price available). Capela draws a tough matchup against a slow-paced Chicago Bulls team that allowed the eighth-fewest rebounds per game to centers this season, and he could get run off the floor in tonight’s elimination game.

I also recommend getting action on this Capela player prop because we’re beating the market. The odds available at both SuperBook and Hard Rock are meaningfully off-market, especially with the under trading at -141 on Pinnacle. By using OddsShopper Premium, you can easily find bets that are trading with positive expected value (+EV) like this one:
