The Brooklyn Nets travel to take on the NBA's leading scorer in Bradley Beal and the Washington Wizards. In a game with a massive 245.5 over/under, Brooklyn will have to keep pace without one of its best players in James Harden, who will be out tonight.

If you're looking to get a little more creative with your wagering, here are three of the best prop bets for this Nets-Wizards clash.

Nets vs Wizards Prop Bets

3. To Score 30+ Points: Bradley Beal (-182)

Bradley Beal has been scoring more than anyone else in the NBA, averaging a whopping 34.7 PPG. He's been red hot lately, upping that figure to 38.9 PPG over his last seven appearances, reaching at least 30 points in six of those seven games. Against the Nets' bottom-five scoring defense, Beal should be in for a big night.

2. To Record 10+ Rebounds: Russell Westbrook (+188)

It's been a bad year for Russell Westbrook just about any way you look at it, but he's still among the best rebounders in the NBA at the guard position. Westbrook is hauling in 9.3 rebounds per game this season, recording at least 10 in five of his 10 appearances on the year. With two top-10 teams in terms of pace squaring off tonight, Westbrook should be looking at even more rebounding opportunities than he normally would. If you want to play this one a bit safer, you could always take Westbrook to record at least 8 boards (-132), but there's plenty of reason to believe he'll hit double digits.

1. To Record 30+ Points: Kevin Durant (-220)

James Harden is out tonight, meaning Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving will have to share the load on offense. That should be no problem for Durant. He's averaging 30.5 PPG on the year and 32.1 over his last nine since returning from a three-game absence. The Wizards are the NBA's worst scoring defense and play at the fastest pace in the NBA, so Durant should have no trouble reaching his season-long averages. If you're feeling bold, Durant is also available at +120 to score 35-plus points.
