We’re in the final month of the regular season, and there are still wide-open races for the playoffs. With a couple of very important games today, we’ll highlight players that may or may not make an impact.
Also, take a look at our other best bets for Monday:
Monday’s Best NBA Player Prop Bets
(Odds courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook)
Bam Adebayo OVER 29.5 Points/Rebounds vs. Utah Jazz (-111)
The Heat have likely cemented their spot in the play-in tournament. They were in a better spot at one point, but we’ve seen the team struggle over the last month going 4-8, and this below-average offense cannot bail out the recent poor defense.
Tonight they’ll host the Jazz, who are great offensively but have one of the bottom-tier defenses. They especially struggle against the big men allowing the fifth-most points to the position. Adebayo threw up 32 points and eight rebounds in the last matchup against Utah, which is a great number to grab.
Alperen Sengun UNDER 3.5 Assists vs. Boston Celtics (+114)
The Rockets are one of the few teams that have already been eliminated from the playoffs. They have the second-worst winning percentage, something they’ve known too well the last few years.
They host the Celtics, who have the second-best winning percentage in the league. The Rockets are having trouble moving the ball, and their center is leading the team with 3.8 assists per game. Don’t expect Sengun to come near his season average because the Celtics allow under 2.21 assists to centers over their last 15 games.
Domantas Sabonis OVER 18.5 Points vs. Milwaukee Bucks (-115)
Is this matchup a possible NBA Finals preview?
The Kings have been one of the biggest surprises this season and could at least land the No. 2 seed. Their objective every game is to out-score you because they allow the fourth-most points, but the top-scoring offense has propelled them all the way.
It will be an exciting showdown between them and the Bucks, who are scoring the eighth-most points. We should see each team’s offensive stars shine, including Sabonis, who scored over 18 points in nine of his last 15.
