Tuesday’s Best NBA Player Prop Bets

Odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook | This Season: 26-42 (-16.16 units)

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Under 1.5 Made Three-Pointers (+120)

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has knocked down at least two three-pointers in four consecutive games. However, he’s still averaging just 1.4 makes per game this month and 1.5 makes per game this season. His current stretch of multiple three-pointers is already his longest streak of the season.

He faces the 76ers tonight, a team allowing the second-fewest points from three-pointers this season. Additionally, the 76ers are holding opponents to the lowest three-point shooting percentage in the NBA. Caldwell-Pope has been hot, but look for him to revert to his average against a solid defense tonight.

James Harden Over 8.5 Assists (-125)

Since Dec. 1, James Harden has recorded fewer than seven assists in only one game. That game happened to be against the Thunder, his opponent tonight. After averaging 6.2 assists per game in November, Harden averaged 9.6 per game in December and 10.1 per game in January. He now has 11 consecutive games with eight or more assists.

Harden could be due for a bad game, but he’s taking on the Thunder on their second night of a back-to-back. Last night, Oklahoma City fell 112-105 to the Los Angeles Lakers. Fatigue will at least play a minor role in this game. The Thunder allow 26.8 assists per game, and with how Harden is passing right now, there’s no reason to be concerned about his past performance against the Thunder.

Jusuf Nurkic Under 10.5 Rebounds (+114)

Jusuf Nurkic has pulled down at least 12 rebounds in three of his last four games, but he has recorded nine or fewer in four of his eight games this month. In December, Nurkic averaged 12.3 rebounds per game, but that average was significantly higher than what he’s done the rest of the season.

Even during his great month of December, Nurkic managed only nine rebounds against Domantas Sabonis and the Kings. Sabonis leads the NBA in rebounds per game, and though Nurkic is top 10 in the league, Sabonis’ physicality will keep Nurkic from getting to a double-digit rebounding total tonight.
