The 2021 NBA season is in full swing. Monday's basketball action features a primetime matchup between the Denver Nuggets and Dallas Mavericks.

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

Nuggets vs Mavericks Player Props

1. Kristaps Porzingis - Rebounds: Under 7.5 (-122)

Kristaps Porzingis has been having his worst rebounding performance since the 2017-18 season, averaging just 7.4 boards per game. He's in for a difficult matchup against the Nuggets, who have held opponents to 50.0 RPG — tied for second-best in the NBA. While the total for this prop isn't that much higher than his average, Porzingis has only finished with eight or more rebounds in three of his seven games played this season. Considering he'll have to deal with Nikola Jokic is in the paint (13.7 RPG), it isn't shaping up to be a promising night for Porzingis.

2. Dorian Finney-Smith - Threes Made: Over 1.5 (-115)

On paper, the Nuggets look like a difficult matchup for three-point shooters, allowing opponents to convert on just 32.1% of opportunities (4th). However, that doesn't mean that Dorian Finney-Smith can't hit the over on this prop. While he's averaging 1.4 threes made this season, he's made at least two in three of his last four games. In fact, Finney-Smith has shot 9-for-19 (.474) from beyond the arc during that stretch. Assuming he sees the same volume tonight, there's a good chance that he hits at least two threes against Denver.

3. Tim Hardaway Jr. - Points: Under 14.5 (-110)

Tim Hardaway Jr. continues to provide good secondary offense for the Mavericks this season, averaging 14.2 points per game. Keeping that in mind, the Nuggets have been the top defensive team this season, holding opponents to an NBA-best 98.0 PPG. To make the situation bleaker for Hardway, Denver is giving up the second-fewest points to opposing shooting guards this season. With Hardaway coming off a 5-point performance against the San Antonio Spurs on Friday, momentum isn't really on his side for this prop.
