Best Nikola Jokic Player Props Bets vs. the Brooklyn Nets

As the Brooklyn Nets gear up to face the Denver Nuggets, all eyes will be on the reigning MVP, Nikola Jokic. The versatile center has been a statistical powerhouse this season, averaging a near triple-double. With the Nuggets playing at home and Jokic’s consistent performance, especially in the absence of key players like Jamal Murray and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, his contribution will be critical for Denver to secure a win against a resilient Nets team.

Nikola Jokic Over 9.5 Assists (-115)

Nikola Jokic has been a maestro in orchestrating the Nuggets’ offense, and his assists numbers are a testament to his playmaking skills. With an average of 9.42 assists per game this season and a hit rate of 41.67%, Jokic has shown he can distribute the ball effectively. Moreover, his last 10 games average of 10.4 assists per game indicates an uptrend in his playmaking, suggesting that he’s finding his teammates with even greater frequency as the season progresses. The Nuggets’ home-court advantage and Jokic’s role as the focal point of their offense, especially with Murray’s day-to-day status, further bolster the likelihood of him going over the assists line. His ability to read the defense and make precise passes should see him exceed the 9.5 assists threshold against the Nets, who will be on the second night of a back-to-back and may struggle to keep up with Jokic’s high basketball IQ and court vision.

Nikola Jokic Over 22.5 Rebounds & Assists (-150)

Jokic’s ability to impact the game in multiple facets is unrivaled, and his combined rebounds and assists numbers are a reflection of that. While his season average for rebounds and assists sits slightly below the line at 22.04, his performance at home has been notably better, with an average of 22.8. This uptick at home is crucial as the Nuggets host the Nets, and Jokic’s tendency to elevate his game in front of the Denver crowd can’t be overlooked. Additionally, with a hit rate of 60% for rebounds and assists at home, there’s a strong precedent for Jokic to exceed expectations in these categories. The Nets’ defense has been inconsistent, and their potential fatigue from the previous night’s game could lead to more rebounding opportunities for Jokic. His playmaking responsibilities are likely to increase if Murray is limited or out, which could result in a higher assists total. Combining these factors, it’s reasonable to expect Jokic to surpass the line of 22.5 for total rebounds and assists.
