Best Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Player Props Bets vs. the Los Angeles Lakers

As the Oklahoma City Thunder prepare to face off against the Los Angeles Lakers, all eyes are on Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who has been a scoring powerhouse this season. With an impressive average that places him just behind Luka Doncic in scoring, Gilgeous-Alexander’s performance will be critical in this matchup, especially considering the Thunder’s recent victory over the Suns where he dropped 35 points. His ability to contribute across the board has been a key factor in the Thunder’s success and will be vital as they aim to maintain their top spot in the West against a Lakers team that’s finding its groove.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Over 30.5 Points (-120)

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has been a scoring machine this season, with a season average of 31.24 points per game, which is well above the line set at 30.5 points. His performance against the Lakers has been particularly impressive, averaging 30.33 points in previous encounters. Moreover, his last 10 and last 5 game averages of 31.7 and 32.6, respectively, show a consistent ability to score above the prop line. The narrative also supports this pick, as Gilgeous-Alexander is coming off a strong game against the Suns and will be looking to exploit a Lakers defense that has shown vulnerabilities this season. With the Thunder’s top spot in the conference at stake, expect Gilgeous-Alexander to take charge and exceed the points line.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Over 0.5 Blocks (-160)

While Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is not primarily known for his defensive stats, his blocks per game this season stand at a solid 0.93, which is almost double the prop line of 0.5 blocks. His recent form suggests an even stronger defensive presence, with an average of 1.2 blocks over the last 20 games and an impressive 1.3 blocks in the last 10 games. Against the Lakers, who have several players returning from injuries and may not be at full agility, Gilgeous-Alexander’s chances of registering at least one block are high. The Lakers’ offensive playstyle, which often involves driving to the basket, will provide Gilgeous-Alexander with ample opportunities to add to his block tally, making the over on blocks a compelling pick.
