Tuesday will be jam-packed with NBA action. Monday’s small slate will be followed up by nine games, which are scheduled to tip-off between 7:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. ET. 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.

Richaun Holmes to record a double-double (+480)

Holmes notched 11 points and 11 boards in just 21 minutes against the Milwaukee Bucks in his last game in his first game back from a knee injury. The Bucks are the best rebounding team in the NBA this year, but the Brooklyn Nets are in major need of frontcourt depth. Three of Brooklyn’s top five power forwards are hurt, and DeAndre Jordan can’t keep Holmes off the glass alone. This bet is well worth the risk, as Holmes has recorded a double-double in nearly a third of his games this season.

Michael Carter-Williams O4.5 assists (+102)

MCW is averaging 5.6 assists per game as the Orlando Magic’s full-time starting point guard. He’s dropped fallen under 4.5 assists just once in his last five games, and he was only short in a blowout loss to the Phoenix Suns. The Orlando Magic are 4-point favorites against a Detroit Pistons team that's short on point guards. The absence of Cole Anthony should make it fairly easy for Carter-Williams to hit this mark with an average performance.

Jaylen Brown O2.5 3-pointers made (+140)

Brown has made more than a pair of threes in three of his last five games and is shooting 40% from deep. He’s attempting a career-high 6.1 threes per game and the Dallas Mavericks allow opposing teams to shoot from beyond the arc at a high rate. These odds are great for a player who’s made three or more threes in half of his games this year.
