NBA props expert John Hyslop is here with his top player prop pick for Thursday night's NBA action.

NBA Player Prop Picks For Thursday: Gabe Vincent Will Make it Rain

I think I've pretty much figured out the NBA at this point. Especially during Covid. You have to look into the unheralded guys first. I'm talking about the guys that haven't really been given much of a chance until now. It's simple logic people if you've been riding the pine for a while and now you're given a shot to actually play, what are you going to do? I'll tell you what I would do. I'd take a three every time I touched the ball.

Gabe Vincent Over 2.5 Made Threes (+154)

Line available at FanDuel at time of publishing

I'm at FanDuel for this one since they are giving 2.5. DraftKings has 1.5 at -190 which is a hard pass and Barstool isn't far behind with 1.5 for -180. And BetMGM hasn't even entered the player prop market on this game. That leaves us with FanDuel.

There is an old saying and it goes like this; when the cat is away the mice will play. I'm not calling Vincent a mouse (or rat), I'm just saying that he looks a lot different with Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo out of the lineup. Like way different. He actually shoots the ball now.

It all started on December 15th when the Heat took on the Philadelphia 76ers. Our guy Gabe took 12 three-point attempts that night. The guy canned seven of them. The very next night he took 11 treys like that's a thing to do. It was crazy.

It's been four games now and Vincent has taken 37 threes in those four games. He's hit at least three of them in three of the games. The only time he didn't was the last time they played Detroit but he gets a chance to rectify that tonight. I think we can trust this guy to do the right thing tonight and bury at least three treys.
