NBA Player Props Picks for Friday, December 9th 2022

Friday night has a solid slate of NBA action available. There will always be a reason to check out the injury report as the league's teams try to find the best way to rotate their players in and out to keep them fresh. Keep an eye on the injury report before placing bets.

Here are the best NBA player props picks for Friday, December 9th 2022.

Mason Plumlee to Record Double-Double (+200)

Knicks vs. Hornets Prediction

The Charlotte forward has started to find his touch around the rim recently. Plumlee has scored in double figures in three of the Hornets last four games. He has been a rebounding machine as well lately.

Plumlee has had double-digit rebounds in six of the past seven games. Charlotte are matched up against the New York Knicks and will have to count on Plumlee to help pound the glass.

The Knicks rank third in the NBA by pulling down 47.1 rebounds per game. With Plumlee's recent streak, it is worth taking a chance on him to grab another double-double at a two-to-one payout.

Pascal Siakam Over 24.5 points (-110)

Raptors vs. Magic Prediction

The Raptors have seen a consistent stretch of play from their star forward. Siakam has scored 20 or more points in the last five games for Toronto. He has been able to do that despite only making more than one 3-pointer once during that stretch.

More impressively, Siakam has been doing so while putting up strong all-around numbers. Siakam has put up at least six or more rebounds in every one of those games and finished with seven or more assists in three of those games.

Toronto will be facing off against Orlando, which has struggled to stop its opponents this season. Siakam should be able to get over his total.

Joel Embiid Over 9.5 Rebounds (-142)

Lakers vs. 76ers Prediction

Embiid is working his way back to full strength after missing some games in November. The Philadelphia 76ers star center has only finished with ten or more rebounds once in his four games since returning from injury. Playing against the Los Angeles Lakers will provide Embiid with plenty of chances to crash the glass.

The Lakers are 30th in the league, only making 31.7 percent of their chances. Embiid should have plenty of opportunities to grab rebounds and will take advantage to record a double-double against Los Angeles.

DeAndre Ayton Over 17.5 Points (-113)

Suns vs. Pelicans Prediction

Ayton has been extremely active on the glass and works hard to create extra opportunities for himself. The Phoenix Suns center has scored 20 or more points in five of their last eight games. What helps Ayton rack up points is his rebounding numbers.

Over the past ten games, Ayton has pulled down more than ten rebounds in seven of them. He has also shown that he can be effective with fewer minutes.

In games against the Mavericks and Spurs, he put up 20 points in each game despite not playing more than 27 minutes in either contest. New Orleans will have a hard time slowing him down tonight.
