Just because Valentine’s Day just passed doesn’t mean we can’t still spread love, and this Wednesday night, there’s a lot to love in the NBA player props market.
Bettors have access to hundreds of player prop lines during Wednesday’s 10-game NBA lineup. We picked out the three best ones that you should consider adding to your bet slip.
Scroll down to learn why we believe the Mavericks’ Kyrie Irving will light it up from deep against the Nuggets in the Mile High City, as well as why Julius Randle will play “bully ball” against the Atlanta Hawks.
Wednesday’s NBA Betting Slate
Two of tonight’s games get prime time treatment on ESPN — Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Philadelphia 76ers, and in the later window, the New Orleans Pelicans take on the Los Angeles Lakers, where LeBron James is expected to make his return since breaking the all-time scoring record eight days ago.
Here are betting lines for this highlight-bound fixture from top sports betting apps.
Player Props for NBA Wednesday
Kyrie Irving Over 3.5 Three Pointers (+122, FanDuel)
It didn’t take long for Kyrie Irving to get comfortable with his new team. Through four games with the Mavs, Irving has knocked down 15 total threes and has topped 3.5 treys in three of those contests.
And he’s still been able to get up shots despite having to share the rock with Luka Doncic. Irving has always paired well with another superstar (on the court), and we don’t expect him to take much of a backseat to Doncic tonight. Besides, getting plus-money odds on a bet that occurs more times than not is always a good bet.

Julius Randle Over 26.5 Points (-114, BetRivers)
Sometimes, players just have a certain opponent’s number. For Randle, it’s against Josh Collins and the Atlanta Hawks. The Knicks forward is averaging 26.7 points across three games against Atlanta, hitting 32-plus points in two of them.
But it’s not just this season that Randle is getting buckets on the Hawks. Since joining the Knicks in 2019, he has faced the Hawks 12 times. He is averaging 27.8 over that span, and he scored more than 26.5 points in seven of those games.
Zooming out, Randle is averaging 23.6 points in his career versus the Hawks. That’s his second-highest career scoring average against a particular opponent.
Collins is questionable tonight with a hip flexor injury. Whether or not he plays, Randle should have a hay day against a Hawks team that allows the eighth most points in the NBA to power forwards.
Darius Garland Over 2.5 Three Pointers (+130, DraftKings)
Now, this is what we call a great value. If you look at Darius Garland’s recent form, it’s almost a lock that he nails at least a couple of threes with a good chance for more.
The Cavs point guard did have an off-shooting night against the Spurs on Monday (0-4 from deep), but he’s hit at least a couple of three-pointers in his 10 games prior to Monday’s stinker, nailing at least three treys in six of them. Stretch that time frame to his last 15 games, and he’s connected on a trio of three-point shots in nine of them.
