Draftkings Sportsbook will be taking bets on six NBA games in Monday’s NBA slate. While there doesn’t appear to be any very exciting matchups, there are some interesting odds and lines we think you should monitor to win some cash.
We decided to pick out four NBA bets you should consider making. This is what we came up with after weighing all the options:
Jimmy Butler to get double-double vs. Washington Wizards (+260)
Butler has proven that he can be a serious threat as a scorer, rebounder, and distributor with the Miami Heat, so we feel like this player prop has to be on your radar. Butler is averaging 20.5 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 6.7 assists this season and was one assist away from a double-double in each of his last two contests. The Wizards have the second-worst defensive rating in the NBA and forked up 28 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists to Butler. This bet has low risk and could result in some big time winnings if you play your cards right.
Devin Booker top point scorer vs. Portland Trail Blazers (+170)
Booker has led all scorers in back to back games for the Phoenix Suns since returning from a thumb injury and took at least 23 shots in each of those contests. It appears like Booker is eager to find his stride again after missing time and shouldn’t have much competition for on his own squad. His two threats should be Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum, and we think having such a small group to choose from makes betting on Booker worth it here.
Spencer Dinwiddie scores first vs. Minnesota Timberwolves (+650)
One thing we know is that the Brooklyn Nets’ offense runs through Dinwiddie. The lanky guard has had the green light for over a month with Kyrie Irving and Caris LeVert sidelined, so it seems likely that he’ll get looks early and often against Minnesota. Brooklyn also has a length advantage over the Timberwolves, who will likely be forced to start Gorgui Dieng over the recovering Karl-Anthony Towns on Monday. This means Jarrett Allen should has a good chance to win the tip and let Dinwiddie get to work from the jump.
