We’ve got nine games on Sunday’s NBA slate, which gives bettors plenty of opportunities to find great player props to target. Here’s a few of our favorites for the day’s action, with odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

CJ McCollum over 5.5 assists vs. Kings (+100)

McCollum only managed three assists in his last game, but he hit 5+ assists in each of the previous four contests and is averaging exactly five assists per game this season. The last time he played Sacramento, McCollum had seven assists. The Kings rank 21st in opponent assists allowed per game, so the matchup is favorable enough to take the over for McCollum here.

Trae Young over 3.5 3-pointers vs. Magic (+114)

The Hawks point guard has put up a few clunkers, shooting just 15% from behind the arc in the last two contests. However, he was connecting on 43.5% of his triples over the previous 10 games and went over this line seven times with all three unders coming at three made triples. The Magic have been decent at defending the perimeter but Young did connect on five three-point attempts in the last meeting between these teams. He’ll have enough volume to top this mark Sunday.

Klay Thompson over 18.5 points vs. Raptors (-120)

It’s tough to predict Thompson’s scoring output due to his inconsistent season. He had a six-game stretch recently where he averaged 25.7 points per game, then promptly put up just 10 points per game over the next four contests. He’s topped this line in each of the last two games as the Warriors attempt to get out of this .500 rut, and I’ll back him to go over this line against a Raptors team allowing opponents to shoot 42.1% from deep over the last five games.

Rudy Gobert under 12.5 rebounds vs. Mavericks (-105)

Even with Dereck Lively and Maxi Kleber set to be out for the Mavericks, Gobert going under this line is the move. The Timberwolves center went under this mark in both of the previous games against the Mavericks, and has gone under this line in his last two games. Even though the Mavericks are one of the worst teams when it comes to allowing opponents to out-rebound them, the under for Gobert’s rebounding prop is worth backing.

James Harden over 31.5 points + rebounds + assists vs. Lakers (-120)

Harden has been excellent when it comes to distributing the ball, averaging 11.8 assists per game over the last four contests. He’s also been shooting the ball better from behind the arc, and should bounce back from a rough showing in the last game against the Pelicans. Harden missed the first meeting between these teams, and the Lakers haven’t been up to the mark defensively of late. Look for The Beard to have a great overall showing Sunday night.
