Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Dallas Mavericks: Evan Mobley OVER 7.5 Rebounds (+100)

Mobley returned to the lineup over the weekend and grabbed nine rebounds, going over his year long average of 8.1. Now he heads to Dallas to face a Mavericks team that is one of the worst rebounding teams in the league, posting the 26th best rebounding percentage this season at 48.6%. The rookie is averaging more than this on the year and the matchup should yield a ton of rebounding chances. I love getting this prop at even money. -- Reed Wallach

Washington Wizards vs. San Antonio Spurs: Keldon Johnson OVER 14.5 Points (-105)

Keldon Johnson is one of the best up-and-coming young players for the Spurs, and he’s had back-to-back strong games with 15 points against the Atlanta Hawks and 17 against the Boston Celtics. 

In fact, Johnson has scored 15 or more points in seven consecutive games that he’s taken double digit shot attempts. However, he’s had four games over his last 11 where he has taken nine or fewer shots and has fallen short of that number in all four. 

Translation: Get Keldon Johnson the ball! 

The third-year wing is averaging 15.1 points per game while shooting a solid 46.1 percent from the field and 39.2 percent from beyond the arc. I’m banking on him seeing the volume in this matchup with Washington. -- Peter Dewey

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Utah Jazz: Jusuf Nurkic OVER 9.5 Rebounds (-105)

Getting in the paint with Rudy Gobert is never fun, but it will be critical for the Blazers to have some success inside tonight as 7.5-point road dogs in Salt Lake City.

Nurkic has been all over the place with his rebounding lately, but does have double digit boards in four of his previous six games, including a 17 board game against the Kings back on Nov. 24.

For as dominant of a force as Gobert is, Utah only ranks 12th in the NBA in opposing rebounds/game at the center position. He also can occasionally get in foul trouble, which would open up the gates for Nurkic to clean up.

I also like that Nurkic is starting to take more shots inside, with double digit field goal attempts in three of his last five. That could give him a few second chance efforts to pad his stats tonight as well. -- Ben Heisler
