Just over half the teams in the NBA are in action tonight, with eight games lined up across the association.
In this article, I’m going to break down two of my favorite NBA player props on DraftKings Sportsbook. Without further ado, let’s get into it.
All odds provided by DraftKings Sportsbook and all odds subject to change.
Detroit Pistons vs Denver Nuggets
This is not a reflection of my feelings on Nikola Jokic.
Cade Cunningham said it himself... the Pistons are bad.
Detroit last summer gave Monty Williams a six-year, $78.5 million contract that could reach eight years, $100 million - making him the highest paid coach in NBA history.— Tim Ring (@timringTV) November 20, 2023
Not a great start as the Pistons are now 2-12.
Cade Cunningham: "We're bad."https://t.co/7E3zAaEDOj
Monty Williams’ squad currently has the worst record in basketball at 2-12, including a whopping 11 straight losses. The Pistons are coming off their worst loss of the season in Toronto last night, and I don’t see it getting any easier for them on the second half of a back-to-back against the defending champs.
The Nuggets, meanwhile, should have plenty of motivation to come out hot and bury Detroit early after dropping two straight games themselves. Jokic is fully capable of hitting this massive PRA total, I just don’t believe he’ll play more than 30 minutes, which would make that task incredibly difficult.
Minnesota Timberwolves vs New York Knicks
Don’t look now, but Randle has turned into a playmaking machine over the last few weeks. The versatile big man has racked up at least five assists in six straight matchups, going well over this total in each of his last three.
After struggling early on in the season, Randle is finally utilizing his massive usage rate to its full potential, getting everyone else involved. There’s been a direct correlation between his spike in playmaking and New York’s success, as the Knicks have rattled off three straight wins.
The Timberwolves are a tough matchup for any big man with Rudy Gobert patrolling the paint, but that could actually work to our benefit in this case, as Randle will likely pass more instead of looking for his shot down low.
As long as he continues to hit this total and the line stays at 4.5, I’m rolling with the over.
Those are my two favorite NBA player props on Monday’s slate! Stay tuned for more picks later this week.
