Thursday's slate of NBA action includes a primetime matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and LA Clippers.
Here's three of the best prop bets for Lakers-Clippers, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Lakers vs Clippers Player Props
1. Terance Mann - Rebounds: Over 6.5 (+108)
Terance Mann provides a strong rebounding presence at shooting guard, and that's been on full display over the past three games. Mann has racked up at least 7 rebounds in each of his last three outings, including 10 boards against the Lakers on Feb. 25. The Lakers are one of the worst teams at keeping their opponents off of the glass, giving up the fourth-most RPG this season. They also play at a top-four pace, so there'll be plenty of rebounding opportunities in this one, making this prop mighty attractive at plus odds.
2. Russell Westbrook - Assists: Under 6.5 (-144)
Despite having their two stars out with injuries, the Clippers own the seventh-best defensive rating in the league. They're able to hold any opponent in check, and the Lakers struggled to get anything going offensively in their previous meeting. The lack of scoring success led Russell Westbrook to record just 1 assist against them at the end of February. Westbrook has failed to hit this over in seven of his last eight games, and it's hard to see things turning around given the matchup.
3. Nicolas Batum - Points: Under 7.5 (-114)
Nicolas Batum has nothing going on as a scorer right now. He's averaging a measly 3.0 PPG over his last four contests, posting a high of just 5 points and even a 0-point night over this span. That goose egg came against these same Lakers, and Batum managed to play only 18 minutes on Feb. 25 despite being healthy. That makes it clear Clippers head coach Ty Lue isn't afraid to seek out other options if Batum can't get it done, which could be the case again tonight given Batum's underwhelming recent production.
