Best NBA Player Prop Bets Today (Feb. 3): Tyrese Maxey, Trae Young, De’Aaron Fox highlight top props

After a wild Friday night in the NBA, we look forward to a six-game slate on Saturday evening. We have been cranking on best bets and top props over the past month, and we’re looking to carry our momentum over to the weekend so we can boost our bankrolls even further. So, as we do every day, today we will share our favorite BetMGM NBA player props and value bets.

Kicking off Saturday’s action, Tyrese Maxey and the 76ers host the Nets one game after Maxey’s 51-point explosion against Utah (6:00 p.m. ET). Then, 10-time All-Star Steph Curry and the Warriors face two-time All-Star snub Trae Young and the Hawks (7:30). 

All-Star snubs De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis travel to Chicago to face DeMar DeRozan and the Bulls (8:00 p.m. ET). Then we may or may not see LeBron James and Anthony Davis when the Lakers visit the red-hot Knicks at Madison Square Garden (8:30 p.m. ET). Donovan Mitchell and the Cavs host Rookie of the Year candidate Victor Wembanyama and the Spurs (8:30 p.m. ET). 

Last but not least, we’ll have a battle of MVP candidates when Luka Doncic and the Mavericks take on Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks in Milwaukee (8:30 p.m. ET). These two All-Stars could combine for 100 points this evening and nobody would even bat an eye.

We’re 83-55 on betting recommendations this season, a number that has been steadily rising over the past couple of weeks. Here are our best bets and top props from Saturday night NBA offerings on BetMGM, our go-to spot for all the latest odds, lines, and props.

Best NBA prop bets today: Saturday, February 3

Tyrese Maxey three-pointers (76ers vs. Nets): OVER 3.5 (+110)

Maxey went HAM on the Jazz on Thursday night, dropping a career-high 51 points on insane shooting splits of 63/78/91. Now, on the heels of the news that Joel Embiid has a torn meniscus, the first-time All-Star gets a chance for an encore performance in front of the Philadelphia faithful at Wells Fargo Center.

The Nets have been below average in terms of scoring defense and defensive rating all season, and Brooklyn’s opponents have collectively shot 38.1 percent from beyond the three-point arc. Maxey has shot a blistering 40.1 percent from distance at home this season, so we’re betting on the young stud to once again fire away from long range.

Trae Young points (Hawks vs. Warriors): OVER 25.5 (-120)

Ice Trae learned once again how stone-cold the All-Star voting process can be, as the stud point guard got left off the Eastern Conference’s squad despite averaging 27 points and 10.9 assists per game and shooting 36.8 percent from deep and over 86 percent from the line.

Young should be very motivated to battle 10-time All-Star Stephen Curry and the underwhelming Warriors at home. We think Trigger Trae will clear 30 points — never mind 25 — and easily net our second W of the night. 

De’Aaron Fox points (Kings at Bulls): OVER 24.5 (-110)

Another guard who got snubbed from the All-Star Game, Fox should be firing on all cylinders against the abysmal Bulls’ defense. Chicago has allowed countless signature performances on the United Center floor this season, and we’re projecting Fox Force 5 to put up 30 points and six assists to add to his impressive 2023-24 season.
