Suns vs. Cavaliers: Deandre Ayton OVER 11.5 Rebounds (-135)

Deandre Ayton is a rebounding machine. He averages 12 rebounds per game as it is and tonight should be no different. The Suns are playing the Cavaliers, who are the 8th worst rebounding team in the league. Ayton has cleared this number in four of the five games since he’s been back from injury. Phoenix needs Ayton to have a big game on the glass in order to keep their winning streak going. Ayton has the third-highest rebounding percentage in the league (among players who play 30 minutes a game), and he will put it on display tonight. -- Donnavan Smoot

Pistons vs. Bucks: Bobby Portis OVER 8.5 Rebounds -125

Bobby Portis has been a rebounding machine the past few games, notching at least 11 boards in three straight contests. Tonight, the Bucks are set to take on the Detroit Pistons who ranked dead last in the NBA in rebounding percentage, grabbing just 47.6% of boards.

Portis should be set up for another big game on the glass, and he's been getting plenty of minutes in recent games which will do nothing but help his numbers. He recorded eight rebounds in only 22 minutes of playing time against the Pistons earlier this month, so I expect him to surpass that number tonight as long as he isn't yanked from the game due to a blow out. -- Iain MacMillan

Wizards vs. Pelicans: Daniel Gafford OVER 8.5 PTS (+104)

Gafford and the Wizards have a chance to get off the schneid tonight in New Orleans against a Pelicans team that ranks bottom 3 in defensive rating this season.While Montrezl Harrell was the star down low in Washington's previous game, a 109-103 loss to Charlotte, this feels like an opportunistic time for Gafford to get some easy baskets and use his quickness to run the court.He missed some time due to injury a week or so ago, but he's getting more minutes again and will attack the basket with nobody down low to contain him on the Pelicans' roster.8.5 seems too low for Gafford tonight. --Ben Heisler
