After an intense start to the week with full slates on both Sunday and Monday, the NBA is taking a step back tonight, and there will only be two games this Tuesday night. The first game we are focusing on tonight is the Washington Wizards traveling to Texas to take on the Houston Rockets. The home-town Rockets are getting over the departure of former-MVP James Harden, new-addition Victor Oladipo [O/U 20.5 Points] is a direct dividend of that trade. It looks like Houston is getting a good return-on-investment as Oladipo has hit the over on his player prop betting line in two of the three games so far. Joining Oladipo is another new-addition in John Wall [O/U 7.5 Assists], who made his return to the Houston lineup after being injured for about two weeks. In the one game where Wall returned, he hit the over in assists on his player prop betting line. Eric Gordon [O/U 2.5 Three-Pointers Made] will have many more opportunities for three-pointers with Harden gone. The numbers do not lie as Eric Gordon has hit the over on his player prop betting line in four of the last five games. Closing out this Rockets team is their big-man DeMarcus Cousins [O/U 12.5 Points.] Cousins is coming off a season-high scoring night where he recorded 28 points and the over on his prop betting line in a win over the Dallas Mavericks. A great duo leads Washington in Russell Westbrook [O/U 8.5 Assists], making his return to Houston while playing for the opposition Wizards. Westbrook has been dishing the ball well, hitting the over in four of the last six games heading into tonight’s contest. Joining Westbrook is the current leading scorer in the NBA in Bradley Beal [O/U 30.5 Points.] It seems like Beal cannot miss as he has hit the over in four-straight games heading into this one. If Houston wants to win this one tonight, they will need to stop Beal from having a big game.
The second and final game of this slate will be held between the New York Knicks, traveling out west to take on the Utah Jazz. Donovan Mitchell [O/U 25.5 Points] leads the way for this upstart Jazz team. As of late, Mitchell has done an incredible job scoring the ball while hitting the over in points on his player prop betting line in six out of the last eight games. Mitchell is joined by a SWAT-MACHINE in big-man Rudy Gobert [O/U 1.5 Blocks.] Rudy Gobert has been providing Utah with some much-needed rim defense, as he has hit the over in four of the last five games heading into tonight’s matchup. Closing out this Jazz team is PG Mike Conley [O/U 15.5 Points], who has been a tremendous role player this season. Conley has hit the over in points on his player prop betting line in two straight games. For the young Knicks, forward Julius Randle [O/U 20.5 Points] leading the way. Randle has really stepped-up in New York and found his stride, hitting the over on his player prop betting line in three of the last four games. Joining Randle in deeply contributing to the Knicks scoring efforts is RJ Barrett [O/U 19.5 Points.] Barrett is in a similar spot to Randle, after hitting the over on his player prop betting line in three of the last four games. Rounding out this Knicks team is PG Elrid Payton [O/U 6.5 Assists], who has not been distributing the ball well lately. Elfrid Payton has hit the under in assist on his player prop betting line in ten straight games. The visiting Knicks need their core to have a big night if they would like to win against the more established Jazz.
