Jake’s Takes: Exploring NBA Player Props, Huddle’s Innovative Offerings and Exciting Partnerships

As we head out of the recent NBA All-Star weekend into the remaining portion of the NBA regular season, there’s a lot to get excited about. Games stared again last night and we’re going to be treated to several exciting matchups from the get-go, like the Knicks playing the 76ers, the Suns taking on the Mavericks, and the Lakers facing off against the Warriors. 

But what does all of this excitement mean for the average sports betting enthusiast? Well, the answer lies in the world of player props. As the NBA continues to evolve, so does the opportunity for fans to engage with the game on deeper and more immediate levels. Huddle’s innovative player prop markets are here to elevate your NBA experience, offering an array of captivating betting opportunities that will let you put your basketball knowledge to the test. 

Huddle’s NBA Player Props: Key Features

Huddle’s Player Prop Markets offer a trifecta of game-elevating features, each designed to provide customers with the ultimate NBA betting experience.


First and foremost, Huddle’s markets, once they are up, remain active throughout the event with minimal downtime, ensuring bet placement is possible in real-time. This continuous uptime means your clients won’t miss a beat, allowing them to engage with each and every NBA game, from start to finish.

Precise Pricing 

In our case, precise pricing is more than a promise – it’s a commitment to our customers. Prior to generating odds for any of the player prop markets, we initiate a sequence of projections rooted in sport-specific criteria. What does that mean? When focusing on the NBA, these criteria encompass elements like a player’s anticipated on-court time as a percentage of the total game duration, their projected scoring of two-pointers in accordance with expected playing time, and their estimated number of total rebounds, which takes into account both their time on the court and their contributions to the team’s overall statistics.

Market Variety

Huddle offers an expansive collection of market coverage. It’s a testament to our dedication to offering a diverse array of betting opportunities – for the casual bettor or the sharp bettor. From the initial tip-off to the final buzzer, we’ve got you covered with a wide range of player props that encompass every facet of an NBA game. Whether you’re interested in points, rebounds, assists, three-pointers, or point bands, our markets cater to the basketball insights (and instincts) of your customers. 

In-House Trading Team

In addition to our market coverage, our in-house traders are a pivotal part of what makes Huddle’s Player Prop markets stand out. Our team of experts has years of experience and an in-depth understanding of the game. They will work diligently to ensure that our markets are not just dynamic, but also fine tuned to deliver the best possible experience to the end user.

Official NBA data and CEBL Partnership

To help solidify our commitment to excellence, Huddle has partnered with the official NBA data provider, Sportradar - this partnership ensures that we have access to the most reliable and up-to-date information, empowering our product and enabling you to offer the best overall betting experience

Earlier this month, Huddle partnered with the official Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL) data provider, Sports Info Solutions as Huddle has been named an official betting technology partner of the CEBL.

Beginning in 2024, Huddle will have the exclusive rights to leverage CEBL markets within the sports betting category. Huddle will collect real-time data from SIS and have the ability to launch CEBL sports betting and fantasy markets, while establishing and maintaining all live odds features within their created products. 

NBA Player Prop Potential:

The potential within the NBA Player Prop Market is staggering. To put everything into perspective, in 2019, the American Gaming Association (ABA) estimated that around $1.5B was wagered on player prop markets. For context, basketball (mainly the NBA) stands as the second most popular sport in the US for betting. A whopping 58% of all bettors actively engaged in NBA wagering. These numbers showcase the incredible potential for NBA player prop growth.

However, it’s crucial to recognize that these estimates are likely conservative, especially given the projections for 2025. According to forecasts, the “in-play” betting handle could conceivably skyrocket to a colossal $117B. A significant share of this surge will inevitably be directed towards player props, primarily as the majority of these bets are placed during live games.

I’m going to have some fun and do some exploring with a same-game parlay for Huddle'a NBA product. A five-leg offering, for the Lakers versus Warriors affair. 

Steph Curry was on a three-point shooting tear before the All-Star break, so I’m taking “Chef” Curry to hit O5.5 three pointers in this matchup. On the flip side, Warriors’ forward Jonathan Kuminga has hit exactly 4 three pointers since Jan. 30. I’ll take his U0.5 three pointers made. Lastly, LeBron James has been banged up – so I’m going with a rare trifecta of unders for King James markets. That’s right – U24.5 points, U7.5 assists, and U.6.5 rebounds in this matchup.

Total price: +1900.
