Favorite Player Prop

Tyrese Haliburton Over 34.5 Points, Rebounds & Assists

Haliburton has hit this number in six of his seven games this season, so we’re riding the hot hand until his production drops off or the total increases.

The fourth-year star has seen significant jumps in points and usage this year, while also being one of only two players to average double-digit assists. Tonight, he draws the Nets, who are abysmal defensively against guards. I expect another big game from Haliburton on Monday.


Favorite Value Plays

Hawks C Clint Capela ($5,000) at Raptors & Clippers PF Marcus Morris Sr. ($4,900) vs. Rockets


Favorite Stud

Bucks PF/C Giannis Antetokounmpo ($12,500) vs. Pistons
