Rudy Gobert OVER 13.5 Rebounds (-105)

While I’m tempted just on principle to take a projection that’s a full 2.6 rebounds less than his average, I think the oddsmakers at WynnBET are hinting that Gobert could have limited minutes in their matchup vs. Atlanta.

The Hawks are on the second leg of a back-to-back and just got spanked by Golden State the night before. They’re getting embarrassed on the defensive end of the court and Utah could put them out of their misery before halftime.

Even so, Gobert should be active early and often cleaning up the glass on Atlanta as their offense still pushes tempo but is just missing lots of shots.

Even if his rotation minutes get shortened in the second half, I still believe over 13.5 boards is very much in play. -- Ben Heisler

Bogdan Bogdonavic OVER 12.5 Points (-115)

Bogdanovic has played well in the last two games, averaging 16.5 points on 45% shooting from the field. Last week, he had two games under 10 points. Yet those were out of character games for him. 

In six of the last nine games, Bogdonavic has cleared this prop. If he can continue shooting close to his average, clearing this number won’t be an issue. -- Donnavan Smoot

C.J. McCollum OVER 21. 5 Points (-120)

McCollum only scored seven points on 3-of-15 shots the Blazers last time out, but I think we are getting a nice price on the guard who is averaging 22 points per game on nearly 10 3-point shots. While this number is right on his season average, the volume is there for McCollum to get his. I also like targeting this over with the game total being so high 221 at WynnBET as of this writing.

With points expected to come easy, I'm eyeing McCollum to do his part and get going from 3. -- Reed Wallach

Trae Young UNDER 24.5 Points (-110)

Trae Young and the Hawks have got off to a slow start to their season, and while I think it's obvious they'll turn it around at some point, I don't think it's going to start tonight. The Hawks continue their road trip tonight against the Utah Jazz, who boast the eighth lowest opponent shooting percentage so far this season.

Young also struggled in the Hawks home game against the Jazz on November 4th, going 8-for-20 from the field for only 21 points. Things are going to get worse before they get better for Atlanta, and that includes tonight's game against the Jazz. I'll take the UNDER 24.5 points for Young. -- Iain MacMillan

Paul George OVER 27.5 Points (-105)

Paul George lit up the Portland Trail Blazers for 42 points in their first matchup this season, and I think we are getting an opportunity to buy low on his prop tonight. 

George is just 13-for-42 over his last two games, but he scored 29 or more points in five of his first seven games of the season. He’s averaging 27.0 points per game this season, and I think playing the Blazers, who allow the fourth-most 3-pointers in the NBA this season, is a great spot for him to get back to his hot start. -- Peter Dewey
