  • Sunday's four-game slate features two NBA player props offering value.
  • This piece will focus on Hawks C Dewayne Dedmon and Thunder C Steven Adams.

Sunday’s best NBA player props focus two of the slate’s four games:

  • Miami Heat at Atlanta Hawks: 6 p.m. ET
  • Washington Wizards at Oklahoma City Thunder: 7 p.m. ET

As a reminder, you can dig deeper on these and many other prop bets by using our FantasyLabs NBA Player Props Tool. It leverages our projections against five of the most popular online sportsbooks and grades each prop on a scale of one to 10.

Hawks C Dewayne Dedmon

The Pick: Under 8.5 rebounds (-120 at Bovada)

The prop market has not adjusted to Dedmon’s new role with the Hawks. He was handling the majority of the center minutes at one point this season, but finds himself squarely in a timeshare with Alex Len at the moment.

Dedmon is currently projected for only 25.4 minutes in our NBA Models, which will make it tough for him to hit the over on his current prop. Dedmon also has a difficult matchup against the Heat, who rank eighth in team rebound rate this season.

If you’re feeling frisky, you can also take a look at the under on Dedmon’s scoring prop of 11.5 points: Both bets have a Bet Quality of nine (out of 10) in our props tool.

The Dedmon rebound prop is my favorite of the day. I’d play the under up to -160.

Thunder C Steven Adams

The Pick: Over 10 rebounds (-115 at Bovada)

Adams is an excellent rebounder, averaging 10.2 rebounds per game on the season, and is in an elite spot against the Wizards, who rank dead last in team rebound rate this season, grabbing a minuscule 45.2% of available rebounds with Dwight Howard off the court.

Both teams also play at a top-eight pace, so this game should feature a lot of possessions.

Hassan Whiteside smashed the Wizards in their last contest, and I’m expecting something similar from Adams today. I like this prop up to -140.
