NBA Props Betting | Celtics provide an excellent matchup for Davis 2022
NBA Props Betting
NBA Props Betting Anthony Davis has been dominating the boards (along with pretty much everything else) recently and will face a banged-up and road-weary Celtics club tonight in a possible statement game. See why our NBA player prop choices think he’ll have a major influence.
There are just five games on the NBA schedule tonight. What is lacking in number is made up for in quality, with some genuinely intriguing matches on the basketball betting board. And some of those matches have some unexpectedly high value in the player prop markets.

With Devin Booker out, bookies are missing a certain Suns player’s potential at the NBA Props Betting, while Zion Williamson will be a force in the paint against the Jazz and Anthony Davis will clean the boards against a banged-up Celtics squad playing the second half of a back-to-back.
Here are my top NBA Props Betting prop choices for Tuesday, December 13.
NBA player predictions for December 13
- Bridges over 2.5 received threes.
- Williamson’s double-double
- Davis has over 12.5 rebounds.
Bridges that are sturdy
The Phoenix Suns’ standout guard Devin Booker will miss another game due to a hamstring injury, and I’m not sure bookies have adjusted to his absence for tonight’s game against the Houston Rockets at NBA Props Betting .
Surprisingly, Mikal Bridges stepped up in Booker’s absence. The Suns’ wing and defensive specialist is averaging 15.8 points on 11.9 field goal attempts per game this season, but he made advantage of his extra chance with Booker out.
Bridges took 23 shots and scored 27 points in the Suns’ previous game against the New Orleans Pelicans. This includes shooting 5-of-13 from 3-point range. Bridges has shot 42.7% from distance this season for the NBA Props Betting . Furthermore, with or without Booker, Bridges has had a hot hand recently, hitting 44.2% of his threes in his previous six games, with three or more threes four times in that span.
Nonetheless, we are receiving great plus money on the Over 2.5 for Bridges 3-pointers made prop playing against a Houston club that has a big trouble defending the 3-ball. In fact, the Rockets are among the worst in the NBA at guarding the arc on NBA Props Betting. Houston allows the second most 3-point attempts per game while ranking 25th in opponent 3-point shooting. Bridges is a surprise solid plus-money value with no Booker and this game versus the Rockets.
Mikal Bridges Prop: Over 2.5 3-pointers made (+136)
The New Orleans Pelicans have been one of the finest surprises in the first third of the NBA season. The Pels are currently on a seven-game winning run and are atop the Western Conference rankings at 18-8.
Simply stated, a healthy Zion Williamson makes all the difference in the world, and so far in December, Williamson is displaying the otherworldly potential that landed him first overall a couple seasons ago.
Williamson has been almost unstoppable over his previous six games, averaging 31.2 points per game on a whopping 68% shooting from the field. He’s also put his massive physique to work on the boards, averaging 9.3 rebounds per game over that span, and he might have another big night when the Pels host the Utah Jazz.
After a great start to the season, the Jazz have lost eight of their previous 11 games, and tonight’s matchup against Zion and the big and muscular Pels is a tough one for them on NBA Props Betting.
The Jazz have lately struggled on defense and have been hammered on the inside. Utah is dead bottom in the NBA in opponent points in the paint per game. Furthermore, the Jazz are a middle-of-the-road rebounding squad, ranking 15th in rebound rate and 18th in opponent rebounds per game.
With Zion collecting double-digit boards three times in his past six games, the +255 price on him to produce another double-double in this matchup is too tempting to pass up.
Zion Williamson Make a double-double (+255).
Does he do it?
After all, Anthony Davis’ flu-like symptoms don’t seem to have been that severe. Davis resumed his next-level brilliance for the Los Angeles Lakers despite missing a game NBA Props Betting, going for 31 points and 12 rebounds against the Philadelphia 76ers and following that up with 34 and 15 against the Detroit Pistons. And now AD has a chance to have another huge game on the boards against the visiting Boston Celtics.
The Celtics have the best record in the NBA (21-7) but face a difficult position on Tuesday night. Boston is wrapping off a six-game road trip that includes four games on the west coast, including a 113-93 loss to the Clippers last night.
Not only are the Celtics playing a back-to-back, but both Robert Williams and Al Horford will be sidelined for this game and, although the Celtics have performed exceptionally well this season, their one weakness is on the boards. Boston ranks 22nd in both rebounding rate and opponent rebounds per game.
This indicates Davis is going to be an issue. Over his previous 12 games, he’s averaging 15.2 rebounds per game, bringing in 13 or more rebounds nine times NBA Props Betting. With a wounded and fatigued Celtics squad playing the second half of a back-to-back, I’m thinking AD makes it 10 times in his past 13.
