There are just six games on Wednesday’s NBA slate, but that doesn’t mean bettors don’t have many options when it comes to player props to target. Here’s a few of our favorite plays for the day’s action, with odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
Tyrese Maxey under 6.5 assists vs. Magic (+105)
The 76ers point guard is likely to take on a bigger role as a scorer with Joel Embiid out once again due to an ankle injury. Maxey managed five assists in the last game Embiid sat, and has only gone over this number once in the three games he played where the big man was out. Plus, the Magic are one of the best teams at stopping opponent assists. It’s a tough matchup for Maxey, and the line is high enough to feel good about the under at plus money.
Kevin Durant over 27.5 points vs. Rockets (-120)
Durant had a rough showing on Christmas Day, managing just 16 points on 4-11 shooting. Prior to that dud, the Suns forward was averaging 30 points per game over the last nine contests. He went over this line seven times, with both unders coming at 27 points. Durant should bounce back against the Rockets Wednesday with a big scoring effort.
Jordan Poole over 2.5 3-pointers vs. Raptors (-150)
Poole has been given the green light to fire at will for the Wizards, and the guard hasn’t been shy about doing so. He’s averaging 9.8 attempts from behind the arc, connecting at a 38.8% clip. The Raptors have been particularly bad defending the perimeter of late, ranking last in opponent three-point percentage over the last 10 games. They are 25th in the category on the season. I like Poole to go over this mark.
Julius Randle over 9.5 rebounds vs. Thunder (-145)
Randle has actually gone under this line in the last three games, so the power forward hasn’t necessarily seen an uptick in rebounding since Mitchell Robinson’s season-ending injury. However, he gets a favorable matchup Wednesday. The Thunder are one of the worst rebounding teams in the league, ranking 27th in opponent rebounds allowed. They are also on the second night of a back-to-back set. Randle should be able to hit double digits on the boards tonight.
