The 2021 NBA season is in full swing. Monday's basketball action features a primetime matchup between the Charlotte Hornets and Los Angeles Lakers.

Here's three of the best prop bets for Hornets-Lakers, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Hornets vs Lakers Best Prop Bets

1. Gordon Hayward - Points: Over 17.5 (+102)

The Hornets have been getting reliable scoring outputs from a number of players on the roster this year, including veteran Gordon Hayward. The 12th-year pro is averaging 17.8 points per game and has posted at least 23 points in two of his last three contests. He remains a vital part of this offense playing 34.6 minutes a night and putting up 13.3 shots per game. The Lakers are allowing an opponent shooting percentage of 45.0%, which ties for the 14th-highest mark in the NBA. It's possible that Hayward sees enough open looks to cash this over before the fourth quarter begins.

2. Russell Westbrook - Assists: Under 10.5 (-118)

Russell Westbrook is still trying to find his place on this Lakers team and this number is simply too high. The nine-time All-Star guard has had less than 10 assists in each of his last six games and has hit the over on this number just twice all season. LeBron James remains out with an injury, which means the Lakers need Westbrook to have a big game. However, the 32-year-old's struggle with turnovers leaves a lot to be desired in his play. Keep in mind that the Lakers rank 18th in the NBA averaging just .222 assists per possession.

3. Terry Rozier - Rebounds: Over 4.5 (-132)

This a great matchup on the boards for a role player like Terry Rozier. The Lakers are giving up an average of 56.8 total rebounds to their opponents and that checks in as the fifth-highest mark in the league. Both of these teams also rank within the top half of the NBA in pace. Its' worth pointing out that Rozier has posted at least five rebounds in three of his five games played this season. Back the seventh-year pro to do it once again on Monday night.
