NBA player prop pick for Thursday from handicapper John Hyslop. John breaks down why he loves Cam Thomas in tonight's matchup against the Wizards for a shorthanded Nets team.

NBA Player Prop Pick for Thursday: Just Bet on Cam Thomas

Obviously, we aren't going into tonight with just one play. That would be very irresponsible given we don't have any NBA until Tuesday after tonight. What we need is a nice point prop on a guy who has no chance of losing. Lucky for us, I found the perfect guy for the job. I have no clue what the people at DraftKings are thinking with their pricing of this kid, but it's getting to be pretty disrespectful at this point. I'm actually thinking about sending a strongly worded email to DraftKings on his behalf at this point. Until then, we should just cash out on him.

Cameron Thomas Over 14.5 Points @ -120 (Bet $120 to win $100)

Odds available at DraftKings at time of publishing

I doubt this line will last but the issue we're facing now is that it's only available at DraftKings. They are the only ones with the stones to give us the option to bet Cam. I mean, they disrespected the hell out of him but at least they're letting us bet him.

If you don't know who Cam Thomas is, slap yourself in the face right now. Not hard enough to cause permanent damage but enough to send a message to yourself. Kids like this don't come along every day so you should at least know he exists. It's the least you can do as a hoop fan.

Thomas has been getting run for the last seven games and he's been stupid good. Over that span, he's failed to get home on this number just once and in that game, he dropped 14. For whatever reason, he only took eight shots that night. I think it's because the Nets played the Kings that night and since they're so easy to score on, everybody went off for the Nets. Bruce Brown had 19 that night. Enough said.

Tonight the Nets are hosting the Washington Wizards which is a beautiful sight to see. Just last Thursday Thomas lit those same Wizards up like an arsonist with 27 points. We should know because we had Thomas at 20+ for +350 (nbd). Maybe FanDuel lets us do that again but they know what time it is. They probably won't even release a line on this flame thrower.

The only thing the haters can bring up is that the Nets just played last night but that is a pretty weak argument. Cam Thomas is only 20 years old. Do you think he cares that he played ball for a half hour last night? Of course not. In fact, the guy shoots 48% on back to backs. The kid lives for this. I bet he goes for 15+ again tonight.
