Best Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Player Props Bets vs. the Washington Wizards

As the Oklahoma City Thunder prepare to face the Washington Wizards, all eyes are on Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, the Thunder’s leading scorer. With an impressive average of 31.5 points per game, he’s been a driving force for the team’s offense. The Wizards’ defense, which is the worst in the NBA, allowing 121.6 points per 100 possessions, could be an opportunity for Gilgeous-Alexander to shine and potentially exceed his season averages.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Over 6.5 Rebounds (-130)

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s rebounding prop is set at 6.5, and the over seems promising for a couple of reasons. Firstly, his recent form suggests an upward trend, with an average of 7.1 rebounds over the last ten games, which is higher than his season average of 6.0. This indicates that he’s been more active on the boards lately. Secondly, the Wizards are the worst team in the league in terms of rebounding, averaging just 39.3 rebounds per game. This weakness could provide Gilgeous-Alexander with more opportunities to grab rebounds, especially considering the Thunder’s own struggles in this area, which might prompt him to step up and fill the void.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Over 40.5 Points & Rebounds (-115)

Choosing the ‘Points & Rebounds’ prop for Shai Gilgeous-Alexander also seems like a solid bet for the over. His last five games have seen him average 40.6 in this combined category, just above the line set at 40.5. Given that he’s facing the Wizards’ porous defense, there’s a strong chance he’ll maintain or improve upon this performance. Additionally, the Wizards’ struggles on the glass could lead to more second-chance points, and with Gilgeous-Alexander’s scoring prowess, he’s likely to capitalize on these opportunities. His ability to score in bunches, combined with the likelihood of increased rebounding chances, makes the over a compelling pick for this prop.
