We go over the lines on DraftKings Sportsbook and pick out our favorite player prop bets you should consider for Friday’s games.

The NBA In-Season Tournament returns Friday with 10 games on the docket, anchored by doubleheaders on NBATV and ESPN. That means there are plenty of opportunities for bettors when it comes to player props to target. Here’s a few we like for the day’s action, with odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

De’Aaron Fox over 26.5 points vs. Timberwolves (-110)

Minnesota has been one of the best defensive teams in the league this season but backing Fox in a spot where the Kings need him to perform typically pays off. The point guard has cooled off over the last two games but is still averaging 28.2 points per game since returning from his ankle injury. With Sacramento having a chance to take an important step towards qualifying for the knockout round of the In-Season Tournament, take Fox to go over this line.

Stephen Curry over 5.5 3-pointers vs. Spurs (+120)

Curry has hit five triples in three of his last four games. He’s gone over this line six times in 14 games and did have a clunker against the Suns, but this is an elite matchup. The Spurs are not good defensively, ranking 28th in opponent triples made and 29th in opponent three-point percentage. The only concern will be if this game gets out of hand, as Curry might not play enough minutes to get past this mark.

Giannis Antetokounmpo over 12.5 rebounds vs. Wizards (-110)

The Greek Freak is officially probable as he deals with an illness, so it might be best to wait a bit on his status before locking in this prop. He’s gone over this line in each of the last three games and gets an awesome matchup against the Wizards, who have allowed the most rebounds to opponents this season.
