We’ve got four games on Tuesday’s NBA slate, anchored by a doubleheader on TNT featuring the return of Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant and a rematch of the 2022 NBA Finals. Here’s a look at our favorite player props for the day’s action, with odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
Ja Morant over 37.5 points + rebounds + assists vs. Pelicans (-115)
It’s hard to know exactly how Morant is feeling physically. Practicing with the team and doing scrimmages is different from playing in a game. However, I do think the point guard will want to make a statement in his return to action. This is not a big number when you look at Morant’s statistical output, and he’s likely to play more with the Grizzlies on a back-to-back as he’s the only fresh guy out there. I like Morant to go over this mark.
Brook Lopez over 5.5 rebounds vs. Spurs (-120)
The big man hasn’t been as involved on the boards this season, but he has gone over this mark in three of the last six games. The Spurs are one of the worst teams when it comes to giving up rebounds, and Victor Wembanyama won’t be suiting up for this game. I like Lopez to play more in this game with the potential for a blowout, and he should be able to go over this mark.
Stephen Curry over 4.5 3-pointers vs. Celtics (-150)
Curry saw his insane streak of 268 consecutive games with a made triple end Sunday, but this is a chance for him to bounce back. The Warriors have talked about others needing to step up to help their star point guard, so there’s a chance they look to get peripheral players involved. However, this Finals rematch with Boston is the perfect spot for Curry to get hot from deep. I’ll back him to make at least five from deep tonight.
Kevin Durant over 29.5 points vs. Trail Blazers (-105)
Durant has been a consistent scorer all season but the Suns star has actually gone under this mark in his last three games. The Blazers are not exactly equipped to be competitive this season, so there’s some blowout potential here which would lead to Durant playing less. The forward has averaged 31.1 points per game over his last 12, and he’s never gone more than three games in a row with less than 30 points this season. He should get to at least 30 points tonight.
