We've got a matchup with huge Western Conference Playoff implications tonight as the Dallas Mavericks host the Utah Jazz with both teams sitting at 45-29.

WynnBET Sportsbook has the game as a pick-'em and I wrote here why I'm looking to the total for value, but there's also a few player props that I have my eye on.

Let's check out the three best NBA prop bets for today's Jazz vs Mavericks matchup using odds from WynnBET:

3 Best NBA Prop Bets for Jazz vs Mavericks

Jalen Brunson 20+ Points and Assists (+125)

Brunson was thrust into the starting lineup this year and has made the most of his opportunity, averaging 16.1 points, 4.9 assists and 3.7 rebounds per game while shooting over 50% from the field. He's cleared this prop in 12 of his last 21 games and I think this matchup sets up for him to do it again.

The Jazz want opponents to shoot from mid-range. They allow the most field goal attempts in the league from 10-14 feet and the third-most from 15-19 feet. That just so happens to be where Brunson excels. Per Cleaning the Glass, he's around the 90th percentile over the last two years in mid-range shooting. I expect a heavy dose of Brunson as Utah funnels the Dallas offense to that mid-range area.

Rudy Gobert Over 13.5 Rebounds (-125)

Gobert leads the NBA in rebounding with 14.1 boards per game. He's cleared this prop in nine of his last 15 and is coming off a sterling 19 rebounds against the Hornets. In my preview of the game, I wrote how Dallas' offensive struggles of late gave us value on the under. They're 26th in offensive rating and effective field goal percentage over their last 10 games, so they're missing a lot of shots. That means a lot of rebound opportunities for Gobert.

The Mavericks have struggled on the glass lately, as well. During March, Dallas is 22nd in rebounding percentage while Utah is 6th. Gobert secured 30 combined rebounds in his two games against the Mavericks in the last month and I expect him to continue to gobble up every missed shot he can.

Reggie Bullock Under 10.5 Points (-135)

I think Dallas will struggle offensively tonight and that provides an opportunity to fade Bullock, who has been terrible lately. He's coming off a 1-11 performance against Minnesota and is shooting just 27.6% from the field in March.

As a result, he's hit double digit points only once in his last six matchups and against such a dominant defense like, I don't see him righting the ship.
