If you're looking for expert handicapping services for NBA player props tonight, look no further than Kingpin.pro. We offer top-notch predictions for all the biggest games, and tonight's matchup between the New Orleans Pelicans and the Orlando Magic is no exception. Check out our analysis of some key players and whether we think they'll go over or under their rebounds prop point total.
|Wendell Carter Jr.||Magic||41||38||29.8||8.7||2.6||15.1|
Paolo Banchero has been one of the most impressive rookies this season, and we expect him to continue his strong play against the Pelicans. Banchero has been averaging 6.6 rebounds per game this season, which puts him right around his prop total for tonight of 6.5. However, we think he has a good chance to go over that total given his recent form. In his last five games, Banchero has averaged 8.2 rebounds per game, and we expect him to be active on the boards once again tonight.
Pick: Over 6.5
Franz Wagner has been a solid contributor for the Magic this season, but his rebounding numbers haven't been as consistent as some other players on the team. Wagner is averaging 4.0 rebounds per game this season, but he's had some games where he's been well above or well below that average. In his last five games, Wagner has only averaged 3.0 rebounds per game, so we think he'll struggle to reach his prop total tonight.
Pick: Under 3.5
Wendell Carter Jr.
Wendell Carter Jr. has been a consistent presence on the boards for the Magic this season, averaging 8.7 rebounds per game. He'll be facing off against Jonas Valanciunas tonight, who is one of the best rebounders in the league. However, we still think Carter Jr. has a good chance to reach his prop total of 8.5 rebounds. In his last five games, Carter Jr. has averaged 9.2 rebounds per game, and we think he'll be able to hold his own against Valanciunas tonight.
Pick: Over 8.5
Markelle Fultz has been a solid rebounder from the guard position, averaging 4.0 rebounds per game this season. However, he has only exceeded his rebound prop point total of 4.5 in 7 out of 40 games this season. Fultz also missed the Magic's previous game against the Brooklyn Nets with an ankle injury, so it's unclear how that will affect his rebounding tonight. The Pelicans allow the eighth-most rebounds per game in the NBA, so there may be more opportunities for Fultz to grab boards.
Pick: Under 4.5
Gary Harris has struggled to find his groove with the Magic this season, averaging just 2.3 rebounds per game. His rebound prop point total for tonight's game is set at 2.5, and he has gone over that total in only 11 out of 40 games this season. Harris also missed the Magic's previous game with a hip injury, and his status for tonight's game is uncertain. Even if he does play, it's unlikely that he'll have a significant impact on the boards.
Pick: Under 2.5
Brandon Ingram is a versatile forward who is capable of contributing in all areas of the game. He has been a solid rebounder this season, averaging 5.3 rebounds per game. However, he has only exceeded his rebound prop point total of 5.5 in 13 out of 45 games this season. Ingram is also coming off a game in which he grabbed just 3 rebounds, so it's unclear if he'll be able to exceed his prop point total tonight. The Magic allow the fourth-fewest rebounds per game in the NBA, so it may be difficult for Ingram to have a big game on the boards.
Pick: Under 5.5
CJ McCollum is one of the top scoring guards in the NBA, but he's also a solid rebounder, averaging 3.8 rebounds per game this season. His rebound prop point total for tonight's game is set at 4.5, and he has gone over that total in 17 out of 54 games this season. McCollum has also been on a bit of a hot streak lately, grabbing 7 or more rebounds in three out of his last four games. The Pelicans allow the eighth-most rebounds per game in the NBA, so there may be more opportunities for McCollum to grab boards.
Pick: Over 4.5
Jonas Valanciunas is one of the top rebounders in the NBA, averaging 11.4 rebounds per game this season. His rebound prop point total for tonight's game is set at 11.5, and he has gone over that total in 31 out of 60 games this season. Valanciunas is also coming off a game in which he grabbed 15 rebounds, so he's in good form heading into tonight's game. The Magic allow the sixth-most rebounds per game in the NBA, so there should be plenty of opportunities for Valanciunas to grab boards.
Pick: Over 11.5
Herbert Jones is one of the younger players on the Pelicans squad, and while he doesn't put up a ton of points, he has shown an ability to contribute on the boards. Jones is averaging 4.1 rebounds per game this season, which is just below his prop total of 4.5 for tonight's game. Jones has gone over 4.5 rebounds in 11 of his last 15 games, including in the Pelicans' last game against the Mavericks, where he grabbed seven rebounds. With the Magic struggling on the boards, Jones should have a good chance to exceed his rebounding total once again.
Pick: Over 4.5
