NBA Christmas Prop Bets of the Day
After successfully hitting on the Under for Orleans Darkwa rushing yards on Christmas Eve, I’m turning my prop bet attention to the NBA on Christmas Day. While it’s a smaller slate of just five games, there’s great value on a prop bet in the early matchup (PHI/NY) and the late matchup (MIN/LAL).
For the opening game today, Fantasy Labs is projecting just 8.8 rebounds for Knicks C Enes Kanter, but his listed total at Sportsbook is 10.5.

He doesn’t play a ton of minutes, and his rebound totals over the last five games have been all over the map: 16, 10, 5, 3, and 9. I’m hoping that Sixers C Joel Embiid will play today which should cut into Kanter’s rebound total, but still think there’s good value on the Under 10.5 if you can get it.
In the last matchup of the day between the TWolves and Lakers, Fantasy Labs is projecting 9.4 points for Taj Gibson, but the total at Heritage is 12. He averages 11 points per game and is a very efficient shooter while playing a lot of minutes, but doesn’t take a lot of shots. With a 23% difference in his projection and listed total, I’m going with the Under 12 points for Taj Gibson tonight.
