3 NBA Props for Monday: Portis Over/Under 7.5 Rebounds?
The FantasyLabs Player Props tool analyzes all the NBA player prop bets on the market each day and assigns each a Bet Quality rating. There are nine games Monday, which means there’s a ton of opportunities to bet props. There are quite a few props with excellent value, so I’ll highlight three that stand out for games starting at 7:30 p.m., 9 p.m., and 10:30 p.m. ET.
Bulls F Bobby Portis Under 7.5 Rebounds at Nets (-114)
7:30 p.m. ET
Portis also played against the Nets on Saturday and put up 18 points and eight rebounds in 30.5 minutes of action. That said, he’ll move back to a reserve role with Lauri Markkanen back in the starting lineup after resting last game. We thus have Portis projected for only 20 minutes Monday, and he’s averaging 0.3 rebounds per minute on the season. If that minute projection holds, he’ll be right around six boards, making under 7.5 here a nice play. Bet Quality: 10/10.
Nuggets G/F Will Barton Under 17.5 Points vs. Blazers (-125)
9 p.m. ET
Barton exploded for 31 points last game in 31.4 minutes against the Clippers, and in 14 games this season without Gary Harris in the lineup, he’s averaged 18.2 points per game. That’s a jump of 2.7 points per game from games with Harris playing, and the stud wing looks to be back tonight. That’ll likely move Barton back to the bench in a reserve role. Furthermore, the Blazers rank fifth this season in effective field goal percentage allowed (50.5%). In Barton’s last four games against them, he’s scored 7, 12, 12, and 13 points. I’m taking the under here. Bet Quality: 9/10.
Clippers C DeAndre Jordan Under 15.5 Rebounds vs. Pelicans (-115)
10:30 p.m. ET | ESPN
Jordan has gone for 17 rebounds in two of his past three games, but he could see a reduced workload today because the Clippers were eliminated from playoff contention last game against the Nuggets. Therefore, we’re projecting Jordan for only 24.2 minutes right now in our NBA Models at FantasyLabs. That’s definitely an educated guess — in reality we have no clue how exactly much he’ll play — but it does seem likely he won’t play huge minutes with nothing on the line. If that’s true, he’s a solid bet to go under that big 15.5 number. Bet Quality: 10/10.
