We’ve got nine NBA games on tap for Wednesday and there are quite a few favorable prop bet lines on DraftKings Sportsbook that we think you should keep an eye on. We’ve identified a few of them here and you should check them out ahead of tonight’s action.

Joe Harris O2.5 three-pointers (+105)

Harris has flourished since James Harden joined the Brooklyn Nets and has gotten an abundance of open looks over the past two games thanks to the attention he and Kevin Durant draw. Kyrie Irving is set to return from his hiatus against the Cleveland Cavaliers and will make the Nets even more potent on offense. The Cavs can only do so much to stop this three-headed monster, and I expect to see more quality shots for Harris, who is shooting 51.4 percent from deep and has made at least three shots from beyond the arc in four straight games. Cleveland has been one of the best defensive teams in the NBA this year and excels at protecting the rim. Taking an outside-in approach would make a lot of sense for Brooklyn.

James Wiseman O15.5 points, assists, and rebounds (+100)

Wiseman went out sad in his first matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers and only played 13 minutes. Still, I expect the rookie to bounce back in a favorable matchup where he’s not up against an elite defensive frontcourt. The San Antonio Spurs give up the third-most rebounds per game in the NBA, and Wiseman has a significant athletic advantage against LaMarcus Aldridge. Keldon Johnson is essentially playing power forward at 6’5”, so I think a double-double could be in play for Wiseman if he gets his normal playing time.

Kristaps Porzingis to record a double-double (+120)

The Dallas Mavericks are ramping up PorzinGOD’s minutes, and he’s logged 29 or more in three straight games while racking up 27 rebounds. He’s shooting a ton of shots and should have no problem reaching the points requirement. While the Indiana Pacers are an excellent rebounding team, he’s his own squad’s best rebounding big.
