There are eight games on Tuesday’s NBA schedule as the final group stage games of the first-ever In-Season Tournament take place. Here’s a look at our favorite player props for the day’s action, with odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Luka Doncic over 29.5 points vs. Rockets (-125)

Doncic has gone over this mark in three of the last four games, although two instances were 30-point performances so there’s some risk here. The Mavericks guard has been cleared to play after suffering a thumb injury, and he’ll be determined to show out in this in-state rivalry game. In 14 career games against the Rockets, Doncic has averaged 29.4 points per game.

Jayson Tatum over 9.5 rebounds vs. Bulls (-110)

The Celtics forward has been excellent on the boards lately, grabbing at least nine rebounds in four of the last five games. The Bulls are one of the worst teams when it comes to giving up boards, ranking 28th in the league in opponent rebounds. Tatum will get his points in this game, but his rebounding prop holds more value. Even with a high line, back him to go over.

Trae Young over 2.5 3-pointers vs. Cavaliers (-140)

Young has been a volume chucker from distance since entering the league, so the attempts won’t be an issue here. The Hawks guard is actually on a bit of a heater, shooting 50% from behind the arc over his last four games on 12 attempts per game. Even though the Cavaliers have a reputation for being a solid defensive team, they rank 25th in opponent three-point percentage. Young should be able to keep his strong play from the perimeter going tonight.
