Saturday's NBA schedule has just three games, but it includes the NBA TV feature of the Oklahoma City Thunder vs Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs (27-19) are a 12-point favorite over the Thunder (14-31) and the over/under is set at 208.5 points on FanDuel Sportsbook.

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

Thunder-Cavaliers Prop Bets

1. Evan Mobley - Points: Over 16.5 (-106)

Evan Mobley remains the clear favorite for NBA Rookie of the Year, and he tops all rookies in blocks (1.7) and rebounds (7.9) per game. The 7-footer is also third in rookie scoring (15 PPG), and is shooting a solid 51% FG - best of the top 15 rookie scorers. In the Cavs win at OKC on Jan. 15, Mobley tallied 20 points - his most over the last nine games with seven of those on the road. Favorable match-up at home against a Thunder team that is below average in defensive efficiency and bottom quartile in rebounding rate.

2. Darius Garland - Points + Assists: Over 30.5 (-108)

‘Hell yeah, I think I’m an All-Star!’ Davius Garland told the media following his 20 point, 12 assist game last time out at Chicago. The Cavs point guard has seen his scoring surge along with shooting percentage with 20, 22, 27 and 32 points his last four games and 50% or better FG his last three contests. That includes 27 points and 18 assists against the Thunder Jan. 15. Garland can deliver again back home against a weaker opponent.

3. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander - Points: Over 23.5 (-106)

Alexander's scoring is up to 22.7 points per game after pouring in 29, 34, 33 and 32 points in four of the Thunder's last six games. The OKC point guard is scoring more despite his worst field goal shooting (41.9%) in his four years in the NBA. The Thunder have lost 9 of their last 10 games and are often playing from behind. Alexander scored 33 points in their lone win during that stretch against a stronger Nets defense on the road, and he'll be counted on again to carry the Thunder's scoring.
