DeMar DeRozan vs Sacramento Kings: NBA Prop Predictions 2/16/22
What’s going on Karma Nation! We hit two of our three prop bets Monday night so we’ll look to keep the momentum going Wednesday. BetKarma has announced a new Bet Tracker that aligns all your plays from Sportsbooks right to the website. Now is the perfect time to try that out. We have 11 games to choose from with our NBA prop bets so let’s get right into it, starting with DeMar DeRozan vs Sacramento Kings.
DeMar DeRozan is playing out of his mind lately and deserves some MVP consideration. DeRozan has put up 35 or more points per game while shooting 50 percent from the floor or better in each of his last six games. Only Wilt Chamberlain has done that in NBA history. Even if this 32.5 points number is really high, it makes sense to capitalize on DeRozan’s streak. The Kings have been one of the worst defenses in the league this season, allowing 114.7 points per game, 28th in the NBA. The only concern with this prop is if the Bulls blow out the Kings and DeRozan doesn’t play a full minutes workload. With Zach LaVine still out indefinitely with a knee injury, I expect this to stay a semi competitive game so let’s roll with DeMar DeRozan vs Sacramento Kings.
Quentin Grimes has been one of the bright spots in what has been a poor start to the second half for the New York Knicks. With RJ Barrett still out with an ankle injury, Grimes has capitalized on joining the starting lineup in his place. Over his last two games, Grimes is averaging 19.5 points per game on 38.4 minutes per game. With Barrett still injured and not playing Wednesday, I expect Grimes to continue to get big minutes. The Nets have badly struggled recently, losing 11 of their last 12 and allowing 116.4 points per game in that span. This Grimes number is just too low for a guy who is going to play a majority of the game for the Knicks tonight. This is my best NBA prop bet of the night.
Josh Giddey is coming off a career night at the Garden where he put up 28 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists. With Shai Gilgeous-Alexander still out indefinitely, I expect Giddey to continue to be a triple double threat every night. Giddey has hit this number in four of his last six games. In that span the rookie is averaging 16.8 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists. The Spurs have struggled defensively this season, allowing 111.8 points per game this season, 21st in the NBA. Keep an eye on Giddey tonight.
