We’ve got a short five-game slate in the NBA Sunday, beginning with an afternoon contest between the Nuggets and Pacers. Here’s a look at some of our favorite player props for the day’s action, with odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
Nikola Jokic triple-double vs. Pacers (+175)
Jokic is coming off a triple-double against the Pistons, and now gets to face off against a Pacers side playing without Tyrese Haliburton. The Nuggets big man should be able to get plenty of touches in what should be a high-scoring game even with Indiana missing its offensive orchestrator. I like Jokic to deliver another excellent all-around performance and log back-to-back triple-doubles.
Kawhi Leonard under 1.5 3-pointers vs. Timberwolves (+150)
Ideally, this line would be a tad higher. Leonard is shooting 43.1% from deep this season, and has gone over this line in six of his last seven games. However, he’s only connected on two triples in five of the seven contests so he’s not going over these marks in a big way. The Timberwolves are one of the best defensive teams in the league, and are sixth in opponent three-point percentage allowed. I think they’ll be able to contain Leonard from three-point range in this pivotal Western Conference contest.
Bradley Beal over 18.5 points vs. Trail Blazers (-120)
The Suns guard scored just six points in his return to action against the Hornets, but has averaged 22.3 points per game in the seven games since then. Beal is coming off a huge 37-point outing against the Lakers and has gone over this mark five times in that span. The Trail Blazers have been one of the worst defensive teams in the league, allowing 116.8 points per game. Beal should be able to top this mark without much trouble Sunday.
