We go over our favorite plus-money props for Tuesdays two-game NBA slate.

Tuesday’s two-game main NBA slate will feature the Atlanta Hawks-Philadelphia 76ers game at 7:30 p.m. before the Utah Jazz-Los Angeles Clippers game at 10:00 p.m. ET. DraftKings Sportsbook has plenty of quality prop bets available, and we’ve identified some of our favorite plus-money options ahead of tip-off.

Joe Ingles O13.5 points (+121)

Mike Conley (hamstring) has been ruled out for the Utah Jazz’s Tuesday game against the Los Angeles Clippers, and Ingles might benefit from the point guard’s absence more than any other player. The 2021 Sixth Man of the Year runner-up’s scoring goes up when Conley doesn’t play. Ingles averaged just 10.4 points per game when Conley was active during the regular season but 15.8 per game in 21 games without Conley. Ingles and Donovan Mitchell will be the only Utah players available who averaged more than 3 assists per game, so expect Ingles to get plenty of opportunities to contribute on offense. Ingles averaged 30.6 minutes per game when Conley was inactive ahead of the postseason.

John Collins O1.5 three-pointers (+117)

Collins has made multiple threes in four of his six playoff appearances and has quietly flown under the radar as a proficient shooter from range. He converted nearly 40% of his shots from beyond the arc during the regular season, and that figure jumped to 45% in the playoffs. The Atlanta Hawks generated three wide-open looks from the corner for Collins in Game 1 of the second round. He sunk all three chances and converted 41% of his open threes during the regular season.

Tobias Harris to record a double-double (+210)

Harris has notched three double-doubles in six playoff games this year. While he averaged 6.8 boards during the regular season, his production on the glass has taken a step forward in the postseason. Harris is averaging 10 rebounds per game in the playoffs. If Joel Embiid is ruled out or needs his minutes monitored because of his knee injury, Harris’s size will be critical against Clint Capela and other Hawks bigs. Points shouldn’t be an issue, as Harris is averaging 24 points per game in the playoffs so far.
