Today’s NBA Player Prop Bets (March 16, 2023)

Josh Okogie Over 1.5 Threes (-115 at PointsBet)

Josh Okogie can be very hit-and-miss from behind the line, but when he is going hot, the attempts will continue to come, and it provides the potential for some alt-line winners.

Okogie is very matchup dependent because he does not create his own shots and mostly shoots from the corners. He has gone over in two of three games since Durant went out and averaged 5.5 attempts in those covers. The other was against the Milwaukee Bucks, who have been the best all year at preventing threes from the corners. The game recently that is most similar to tonight against the Magic was against the Kings. In that game, Okogie went three of six from deep and had 10 shot attempts.

Orlando is similar to Sacramento because the Magic are allowing the fifth-most corner threes in the last two weeks and the fourth-most attempts from deep overall. With Booker, Paul, and Ayton getting most of the attention, there is a high likelihood that Okogie will get plenty of chances, especially against a team that allows the fifth most threes to SFs.

Risk: 1.15 units on PointsBet to win 1 unit. (Playable to -122)
