We go over the lines on DraftKings Sportsbook and pick out our favorite player prop bets you should consider for Wednesday’s slate.

Wednesday’s massive NBA slate will feature 10 games. All those matchups come with a ton of betting options. 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.

Dillon Brooks O16.5 points (+110)

Brooks has gone over his average of 16.1 points per game in five of his last six contests. The Memphis Grizzlies wing will be up against a depleted Utah Jazz perimeter defense, as Donovan Mitchell is out for personal reasons. Grayson Allen’s hip injury could help Brooks get more minutes than usual. Mike Conley and Jordan Clarkson aren’t equipped to defend a bigger guard like Brooks. He’s averaging 17.4 points per game in March.

Julius Randle U5.5 assists (+110)

Randle has flashed his ability to record triple-doubles at times this season, but his playmaking has dropped off lately. He hasn’t recorded more than four assists in four games despite having faced off against the Washington Wizards twice in the last week. He is averaging more than six assists per game in March, but 5.8 dimes per contest on the year. An average game could put him right on the bubble for this prop, but recent history suggests that the under is the better option.

Richaun Holmes O11.5 rebounds (+125)

Holmes snagged 11 boards against the San Antonio Spurs in his last game and is averaging 11 per game over his last 10 contests. San Antonio has an undersized frontcourt with Keldon Johnson starting at power forward is looking to rebuild its frontcourt rotation by incorporating Gorgui Dieng as a backup center. The Sacramento Kings are missing two key bigs in Hassaan Whiteside and Marvin Bagley, so expect Holmes to continue being extremely active on the glass.
