We have a nine-game slate of NBA games scheduled for Tuesday, with tip-off times ranging from 7:00 p.m. ET to 10:0 p.m. ET. DraftKings Sportsbook is offering several enticing prop bets for the matchups, and I’ve identified some that stand out on DraftKings Sportsbook. Let’s take a look at some of my favorite options,

PJ Tucker O5.5 rebounds (+110)

The extremely undersized San Antonio Spurs won’t have LaMarcus Aldridge for this matchup, so an undersized forward like Tucker has an opportunity to first on the boards. Christian Wood is the Houston Rockets’ leading rebounder but has been ruled out with an ankle sprain. Expect Tucker to play a ton alongside DeMarcus Cousins. Tucker tallied at least six rebounds in both the games he’s played against the Spurs this season. Wood has not played in three of the nine games Tucker has recorded at least six rebounds in this season.

Thaddeus Young O26.5 points, rebounds, and assists (+101)

The Chicago Bulls’ do-it-all big man has been heavily featured as of late because of frontcourt injuries. Wendell Carter Jr. and Lauri Markannen won’t play Saturday, and Otto Porter Jr.’s status is up in the air. Young has been a night;y triple-double threat and should only have to compete with Chandler Hutchinson for power forward minutes. Young has hit the over of 26.5 in four of his last five games.

Ja Morant O7.5 assists (+100)

Morant has dropped below his assist average in two straight games, but he won’t get many matchups better than this. The New Orleans Pelicans give up the second-most assists per game (27.6) to opposing teams, and the Memphis Grizzlies rank second in assists per game (28.2). Seeing T.J. McConnell tally 15 assists off the bench against New Orleans earlier this week made me pretty confident that Morant can hang around his average of seven dimes.
