Tuesday’s NBA Playoff schedule will be composed of three games with tip-off times ranging from 7:30 p.m. ET to 10:30 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.

James Harden to record a triple-double (+295)

Unlike Russell Westbrook, James Harden’s triple-double odds are still fun to bet on. The Beard came within one rebound and two assists of a triple-double in Game 1 despite the Nets’ horrendous start on offense and was two rebounds from a triple-double the one time he faced Boston during the regular season. Harden is certain to play 35 or more minutes alongside Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. A double-double is almost guaranteed.

Luka Doncic to record a triple-double (+320)

Doncic’s triple-double prop is even more enticing than Harden’s. He’s recorded a triple-double in three of his seven career playoff games, and all of them have come against the Los Angeles Clippers. Doncic averaged 30.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 11 assists per game against the Clippers through three meetings in the regular season. He’s poised to have even more of an impact with a shorter rotation in the postseason.

Andre Drummond O8.5 rebounds (+110)

The Los Angeles Lakers have been forced to dial back Drummond’s minutes because of how poorly he’s played with Anthony Davis, but that doesn’t mean he’s no longer a glass eater. The former Cleveland Cavaliers center might not be a consistent double-double threat but has grabbed more than 8 rebounds in 8 of his last nine games despite averaging a little more than 20 minutes per game. Drummond is averaging 12 rebounds per game and has grabbed at least 9 boards in more than three quarters of his games this year.
