Saturday’s short NBA slate will conclude with the Los Angeles Clippers facing the New Orleans Pelicans this evening. Here’s a look at some of the best player props from this contest with odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

CJ McCollum over 2.5 3-pointers (-145)

McCollum has been on fire from deep, going over this line in the last five games and seven of the last eight. He’s shooting 50% from deep in the last five, and coming off a game Thursday where he hit six triples. Look for McCollum to be a factor from behind the arc against the Clippers tonight.

Russell Westbrook over 14.5 points (-120)

The point guard is averaging 18.0 points per game since Paul George’s injury, and he’s coming off a horrendous showing Friday where he managed just four points on 2-8 shooting. Look for Westbrook, who has gone over this line in three of the last six games, to bounce back against the Pelicans with a better scoring night.

Josh Richardson over 2.5 rebounds (+110)

Richardson has gone over this line in four of the last six games. He’s averaging 2.6 rebounds per game over the last 12, so there’s always a chance of him getting that one additional board to push him past this total. He doesn’t play heavy minutes but offers a nice payout on this prop.
