Best NBA Prop Bets Today

  • Seth Curry OVER 15.5 Points (-135)
  • D'Angelo Russell OVER 5.5 Assists (-130)
  • Karl-Anthony Towns UNDER 9.5 Rebounds (-105)

D'Angelo Russell OVER 5.5 Assists (-130)

The Golden State Warriors look to pick themselves up on the road versus the Minnesota Timberwolves after blowing a huge fourth quarter lead to the Dallas Mavericks at home on Sunday night. With a fairly short line (Warriors -1.5), this bodes well for D'Angelo Russell to exceed his assist prop for tonight.

Since Russell returned from his quad injury, not only has he been a very active scorer, he's embraced more opportunities to distribute, dropping 6-plus assists in seven of his last 10 games.

Russell has missed this number in his last two games, but one trend worth paying attention to is his assist numbers have been up in close games. In two of the three games where he hasn't gone over, the results have been losses by 10 or more points. -- Ben Heisler

Seth Curry OVER 15.5 Points (-135)

I may be fading the Brooklyn Nets tonight, but I’m going to buy low on Seth Curry after he put up just 11 points on seven shots in less than 24 minutes in Monday’s loss to the Toronto Raptors. 

Since joining the Nets, Curry is taking 13.3 shots per game and is averaging 17.8 points per game while shooting 50 percent from the field and 48.8 percent from beyond the arc. 

With Kyrie Irving unable to play in Toronto, the Nets are going to need all they can get from Curry to hang around on Tuesday night. I love him to get back on track after hitting this over in four of his first games with the Nets. – Peter Dewey

Karl-Anthony Towns UNDER 9.5 Rebounds (-105)

Karl-Anthony Towns is averaging 9.6 rebounds per game this season, but I think tonight's a good time to take the UNDER on his total. He and the Timberwolves are set to take on the Golden State Warriors, who are one of the better rebounding teams in the NBA. Golden State grabs 51.1% of boards, which is good for the sixth best mark. 

They've been even better in recent games, grabbing 51.6% of rebounds over their last three contests. KAT has also slowed down in the rebounding department in recent games, recording a combined 11 in his last two games. I'll take the UNDER tonight. – Iain MacMillan
