Best NBA player prop bets today: Tyrese Haliburton’s minutes restriction highlights Tuesday, February 6

The NBA has a solid seven-game slate lined up on Tuesday night, with some strong matchups and intriguing betting opportunities. As we do every day of the week, we’ll share some of our favorite NBA player props from BetMGM so you can boost your bankroll heading into the midweek swing.

We’ve got a lot of fun to look forward to this evening, with young studs like Tyrese Haliburton (Pacers vs. Rockets, 7 p.m. ET) and Jalen Brunson (Knicks vs. Grizzlies, 7:30). The Eastern Conference-champion Heat host the Magic in a Sunshine State special (7:30), while Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving take the Mavs to Brooklyn to face KI’s former squad, the Nets.

Anthony Edwards and the mighty Wolves head to Chicago to face the Bulls (8:00), and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander leads the West-leading Thunder to Salt Lake City to challenge the Jazz. All that action leads to the main event, a rematch of the 2021 NBA Finals between the Bucks and the Suns in the Valley (10 p.m.)

That’s a fantastic night of NBA hoops, and we’re eager to get some props in. We’ve been crushing our best bets and top props all season, hitting on over 60 percent of our picks and improving as the season progresses. Let’s carry over the momentum and keep the money train rolling!

Let’s dive into the Tuesday night slate and pinpoint our best bets on BetMGM, our go-to spot for all the latest odds, lines, and props

Best NBA prop bets today: Tuesday, February 6

All odds courtesy of BetMGM, an authorized gaming operator of the NBA.

Damian Lillard points (Bucks at Suns) — OVER 23.5 (-110)

This will mark Dame’s first time facing the Suns since he became a Buck, and we think he’ll be ready for the 2021 NBA Finals rematch. Phoenix’s offense has been blistering, so this should be a high-scoring affair with plenty of motivation on both sides. 

In seven games against Phoenix dating back to 2020-21, Lillard has averaged over 30.5 points per game. Now that Milwaukee has adjusted to Doc Rivers’ offensive system, we should be able to expect some Dame Time highlights in this high-profile game on national TV. 

Tyrese Haliburton assists (Pacers vs. Rockets) — OVER 6.5 (+115)

We love the idea of getting plus odds on Haliburton to log seven dimes at home against Houston. Yes, even with the minutes restriction limiting him to 20-22 minutes since returning from his hamstring injury. 

Even if Hali stays at 20-22 minutes, seven assists seems very doable. The Rockets surrender an average of 25.5 dimes per away game, and they’re also allowing the 11th-most adjusted assists to point guards over the past 30 days. The Wolves’ Mike Conley needed just 24 minutes to bag nine helpers against Houston on Sunday, so we’re confident Hali can hit seven with ease tonight — as long as he plays (Haliburton is listed as questionable).

Chet Holmgren blocks (Thunder at Jazz) — OVER 2.5 (-115)

Holmgren sits at +220 on BetMGM in Rookie of the Year odds, behind only frontrunner Victor Wembanyama at -275. A major catalyst in his chances has been his defense, as few big men protect the rim as well as Chet.

The 7-1, 200-pound phenom averages 2.6 blocks per game and has exceeded two swats a whopping 22 times. Now he faces Utah, who get blocked 6.5 times per game (second-most in the NBA) and have been swatted seven times per game over the past three games. You can bet on Chet tonight. 

Other NBA props we like tonight: Precious Achiuwa (Knicks vs. Grizzlies): OVER 9.5 rebounds (-135); Luka Doncic (Mavericks at Nets): UNDER 33.5 points (-120); Paolo Banchero (Magic at Heat): OVER 2.5 turnovers (-115)
