NBA Prop Bets Tonight for 2/9

3. To Record 12+ Rebounds – DeMarcus Cousins (+158)

Christian Wood is out again due to an ankle injury, and that means it's DeMarcus Cousins time. Boogie has been a box score menace when starting this season, averaging 12.8 rebounds per game (RPG) in that time while nabbing at least 12 boards in three of six. He's grabbed at least 11 rebounds in five of those six, and the +158 juice makes this an enticing prop.

2. To Score 15+ Points – Lonzo Ball (+124)

His brother LaMelo is grabbing the headlines right now, but Lonzo Ball is quietly having one of the better stretches of his career. He's scoring 17.0 PPG over his last six outings, recording at least 15 in four of his last six games and each of his last three. He draws a tough test against a revamped Rockets' defense tonight, but Houston does play at the fourth-fastest pace in the NBA. An increase in opportunity should help offset a potential dip in efficiency. Look for Lonzo to keep rolling.

1. To Score 30+ Points – Jayson Tatum (+172)

The Boston Celtics have virtually no scoring on the roster outside of Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Kemba Walker. Brown looks like a game-time decision for this one, while Walker hasn't looked like himself since returning to the court. If Brown sits or is in any way limited, the brunt of the offensive responsibility will fall on Tatum, who is more than capable of delivering. He's averaging 28.9 PPG over his last 10 appearances, scoring at least 30 in two of his last five. He also dropped 33 points the last time he faced Utah on the road. Likely to shoulder an increased offensive burden, Tatum's got a nice chance to hit a prop that's juiced at +172.
