There aren’t a ton of great betting lines for Tuesday’s NBA slate, as only three games are on tap. While the options are limited, we’ve identified a prop bet from each game on DraftKings Sportsbook that you should keep an eye on. Here are some choices you should keep in mind before the games get started at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Bojan Bogdanovic, O2.5 three-pointers made (+125)

Bogdanovic’s shooting is coming together. He got off to a slow start in the 2020-21 season but has made three or more shots from beyond the arc in five of his last six games. The New York Knicks do have one of the better defenses in the NBA this season and excel at guarding the perimeter, but they gave up 17 threes to the Portland Trail Blazers in their last game and the Utah Jazz shot the third-most threes per game in the NBA.

Robin Lopez, O6.5 rebounds (+127)

Lopez has tallied 18 rebounds in the two games he’s played since Thomas Bryant suffered his season-ending knee injury. While Washington brought in Alex Len to make up for the loss, but Houston struggles to keep opponents off the glass and give up the fifth-most rebounds per game in the NBA. The absence of Christian Wood (ankle) will be felt with Lopez under the basket.

Luke Kennard, O24.5 points, assists, and rebounds (+110)

Paul George and Kawhi Leonard are out because of COVID-19 protocol and it’s time for Kennard to rise to the occasion. Missing two superstars is a big deal, and Patrick Beverley getting ruled out with a knee injury adds even more pressure to Kennard, who operates as both a wing and a ball handler. Even though he’s only hit this mark twice this season, Atlanta is dealing with injuries in the frontcourt and backcourt that could ease his road to success. Pay attention to the injury report before banking on Kennard.
