NBA props, odds, SGP bets, model predictions for February 22: Back Stephen Curry under 30.5 points

After a much-discussed NBA All-Star Weekend, the league will resume regular-season play on Thursday with 12 games on tap. One of the top matchups will see three players who participated in the All-Star Game in action as Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Oklahoma City host Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and the Los Angeles Clippers.

He’s one of four players averaging over 30 points per game, and his Thursday NBA props total for points is 30.5.
