Friday's full NBA slate features 9 games, and the Brooklyn Nets at Atlanta Hawks will draw plenty of betting interest at 7:30 p.m. ETT on ESPN. The Hawks are now a 2.5-point favorite over the NBA Championship favorite Nets. But prop bets will prove popular in this contest with leading MVP contender Kevin Durant looking to get the Nets a win over Atlanta for the 9th time in the last 11 meetings.

Here's three of the best prop bets for the Nets-Hawks game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Nets vs Hawks Player Props

1. Kevin Durant - Points: Over 27.5 (-110)

Durant scored a team-high 32 points to lead the Nets 117-108 home win over the Hawks Nov. 3. The superstar leads the NBA in scoring (29.7) with a 63.0% true shooting percentage. Durant also leads the league in minutes played, averaging 36.2 per game, and he's been on the court more than 37 minutes in eight straight games. At some point this season, the 33-year-olds production could cool off, and it did a bit in Wednesday's road loss at Houston with 24 points. But the Hawks defense is beyond bad, and their is no match-up to slow Durant inside or outside with the Hawks among the worst-rated teams in defensive efficiency.

2. Trae Young - Player Three's: Over 2.5 (-132)

The Hawks have heated up in two recent games scoring 121 and 127 points. Young is among the league leaders in scoring at 26.3 PPG, and now Young and the Hawks play with more rest against the Nets off their Dec. 6 road win at Minnesota where the team set a franchise record with 25 made 3-pointers. The playmaker has double-digit assists in six of the Hawks last seven games and he leads the Hawks No. 2 ranking in offensive efficiency. The Hawks offense is elite and leads the league in 3-point shooting (38.6%). Lay the juice for Young to make at least three 3's.

3. Kevin Huerter - Player Three's: Over 2.5 (+116)

Huerter is getting healthier and becoming more productive following his slow start recovering from an off-season ankle procedure. He's now shooting 39% from 3 and 48% from the floor including 7-of-11 three's in a recent win over Charlotte. Huerter and the Hawks are even more efficient when the shooting guard can join PG Young in the starting lineup, which he will again tonight. Huerter shoots 47% from long range when he starts, and a plus price to make at least three 3-points should hit the mark.
