We analyze our favorite NBA player props and best bets for Wednesday based on the best NBA odds.
We had an exciting end to the group stage of the NBA In-Season Tournament on Tuesday, winning the bracket thanks to Kyrie Irving, Karl-Anthony Towns and Darius Garland, who all surpassed their assist totals. The 3-0 record of our best NBA bets earned us 3.05 units on the night.
If you’re expecting a shorter schedule on Wednesday, think again. We have seven games on the schedule and some teams are facing difficult games in a row.
The Houston Rockets suffered a depressing loss to the Dallas Mavericks as they missed the chance to win their group and advance to the quarterfinals.
Meanwhile, the Sacramento Kings are in top form after a thrilling comeback against the Golden State Warriors, which resulted in the Kings reaching the quarterfinals of the NBA In-Season Tournament.

Wednesday’s NBA player props
Jusuf Nurkic 4-plus assists vs. Raptors (+145 via FanDuel) ⭐⭐⭐⭐
The Phoenix Suns face the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday and the Suns are expected to have Kevin Durant back in the lineup after he missed the last two games with a foot injury. This is relevant to the Nurkic bet because when Durant is on the court with Devin Booker and Eric Gordon, the middle of the court is wide open for Nurkic to act as a facilitator on offense. Because of this, he is averaging more full assists per game than he did in his previous two seasons with the Portland Trail Blazers.
With the Raptors starting Jakob Poeltl and Pascal Siakam up front, Nurkic’s minutes should be there for him on Wednesday night. The Suns will need his size on the glass as the Raptors are one of the better offensive rebounding teams in the NBA.
Nurkic is a boom or bust type player when it comes to his assists, and that’s why I’m targeting the alternate over on FanDuel because I believe he has boom potential against the Raptors.
Nurkic is projected to have 3.7 assists on Wednesday, just shy of the four we need, but it’s the +145 FanDuel is offering for the 4+ assists that puts me right on target with this bet. Based on this prediction, we can rate Nurkic at -105 to have more than 4 assists on Wednesday.
