We have a 12-game NBA schedule on Wednesday night, which features two nationally televised games on ESPN (Lakers-Sixers and Timberwolves-Warriors). With a schedule this loaded, there are a ton of prop bets on DraftKings Sportsbook that look intriguing and could put some money in your pocket. We are going to look at a few prop bets and breakdown why you need to consider them either in a parlay or single ticket.

Evan Fournier, O 2.5 3pt made (+110)

In one of the few early games tipping off at 7:10 p.m. ET, we have the Sacramento Kings and Orlando Magic. This game’s line is slowly ticking towards being a pick’em, which means we should be in store for a good one. In nine games this season, Fournier is shooting 39.3 percent on 6.2 attempts per game. He’s gone over the mark in four games already, including the Magic’s last three games. Then to make this prop more enticing, the Kings’ three-point defense is bad as they are allowing teams to shoot 39.9 percent from behind the arc.

Kyle Lowry, O 5.5 rebounds (+110)

If the Toronto Raptors are without Pascal Siakam and/or OG Anunoby, they will need someone else to step up in the rebounding department. That player could be Lowry, who is averaging a career-high 6.2 rebounds per game. The veteran point guard has surprisingly gone over 5.5 rebounds in 10 out of 14 games played this season. That’s good for prop bet odds, but bad for the Raptors’ frontcourt, which has sorely missed Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka this season.

Devonte’ Graham, O 6.5 assists (+105)

Graham’s over assists is a prop bet has had a strong success rate of hitting when its been for plus money. This season, Graham is averaging 6.2 assists per game for a Hornets team that has been fun to watch, thanks to LaMelo Ball. Graham plays in an offense that has two scorers in Terry Rozier and Gordon Hayward flanking him on each side. The former second-round pick has gone over the 6.5 assist threshold in nine out of 17 games played.
