Monday’s main NBA slate will feature six games. While there aren’t a ton of teams playing, there are plenty of interesting betting lines. DraftKings Sportsbook has a wide array of prop bets available for the action, and we’ve identified a few lines that stand out. Let’s take a look at some options worth considering.
Wendell Carter Jr. O12.5 points (+100)
This over-under is right around Carter’s average of 12.8 points per game. The third-year big isn’t an electric scorer, but the Houston Rockets only have 6’5” P.J. Tucker and G League call up Justin Patton to deploy at center. I wouldn’t say this bet is a lock, but Carter has a major advantage in this matchup. The Rockets’ interior defense isn't the same without Christian Wood, who is still recovering from an ankle injury.
Kyle Anderson O1.5 3-pointers made (+110)
Anderson has made multiple threes in four straight games. He’s also connected on multiple threes in 56% of his games this season. Monday’s matchup against the Dallas Mavericks is desirable, as the Mavs give fork up the fifth-most made threes pet game in the league this season. Anderson will be well-rested after sitting out against the Suns, and his current hot streak makes it hard to pass on this bet when he’s shooting 40% from deep on 4.2 attempts per game.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope O15.5 Pts + Rebs + Asts (+125)
KCP erupted for 11 points, 3 rebounds, and 4 assists against the Miami Heat’s top-notch defense in his last game, and now he’s up against the worst defense in the league. I’m not sure who Washington will use to guard LeBron James. Garrison Mathews is the Wizards’ starting small forward, and he’ll need a lot of help to defend James. Help defense should allow shooters like KCP to flourish in this matchup, as James almost always makes the right read the faced with a double team.
