Kevin Durant 2016-17 Season Betting Props

Kevin Durant shook up the NBA universe by signing with the Warriors instead of inking a one-year deal with the Thunder like most expected. There will be some interesting dynamics when Durant, Steph Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson all hit the floor together for the first time and in the wake of the hype around the new super team, a couple KD props have been released by online sportsbooks.

Average Points per game for Kevin Durant in the 2016-2017 NBA regular season

The total for this prop, 26, says a lot about what sportsbooks like Bovada think will happen when you stick Curry and Durant on the same floor. There are only so many shots to go around but there is definitely a precedent to recognize here. Since the 2009-10 season, Durant has only averaged below 27.7 points in one season – a season he only played 27 games and still averaged 25.4 per game.

Something else to recognize, Durant is used to playing with high-volume shooters. Russell Westbrook put up an average of 18.1 shots a game this year compared to the 19.2 KD-Trey put up – he will get his shots, don’t worry.

Who will average more points per game in the 2016-17 NBA regular season

In the same court as the last prop but with a key difference: Durant doesn’t have to get to a certain number to win you this bet, he just needs to outscore Curry. At -150 I think it’s almost a lock to happen. Even though he outscored Durant last season, Curry will have to – if he wants to win – be more of a playmaking teammate than a scorer.

Because of the amount of shooting talent on the floor, Durant is going to have more space than he has ever had. It’s not unrealistic to think that KD could come close to or break his previous career high of 32.0 points per game
