We’ve got a small six-game slate in the NBA Saturday, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some strong player prop opportunities for bettors to target. Here’s a few of our favorite plays for the day, with odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Trae Young over 10.5 assists vs. Wizards (-120)

The Hawks point guard has not hit double-digit assists in his last two games but went over this line in the previous three contests. He’s going up against a fatigued Wizards squad who played a tough game Friday night. Washington is also last in the league when it comes to opponent assists allowed, so the matchup is extremely favorable for Young to get back on track in this category.

Mikal Bridges over 2.5 3-pointers vs. Heat (+130)

Bridges’ three-point percentage (31.4%) is largely down due to a shocking 2-14 performance from him earlier this month against the Wizards. He’s fared better since then, shooting 47.4% over the last four games. Bridges has hit at least two triples in each of the last five games, so there’s a bit of good form here worth backing. While the Heat do have a strong defensive team, they rank 24th in opponent three-point percentage and are coming off a game Friday where they blew a late late.

LeBron James over 40.5 points + rebounds + assists vs. Cavaliers (-115)

In two games against Cleveland last year, James averaged 24 points, 12 rebounds and four assists per game to put him right at this line. In 20 career games facing his hometown team, James averages 29 points, 7.6 rebounds and 7.1 assists per game. His triple-double prop at +1300 might be a bit tough to hit, but he should be able to once again show out for his hometown fans. Take James to go over this line Saturday.
