Tuesday's NBA slate of games includes a showdown between the LA Clippers and Denver Nuggets. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Nuggets as the 6.5-point home favorites over the Clippers.

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

Clippers vs Nuggets Player Props

1. Nikola Jokic - Points: Over 26.5 (-108)

Nikola Jokic has been playing like an MVP candidate throughout the season. With that being said, he isn't seeing the high offensive totals he was earlier in the year, hitting the under on this prop four times in his last six outings. Fortunately, he has a great chance to get back on track against a Clippers team that's lost three of their last four games. Additionally, Jokic dropped 49 points while shooting .640 from the field the last time these two teams met. In other words, the 2020-21 NBA MVP has a great shot at finding offensive success against the Clippers again tonight.

2. Ivica Zubac - Rebounds: Over 7.5 (-110)

Ivica Zubac has become the Clippers' No. 1 center this season, starting each of the 67 games he's appeared in. That's led to him averaging a career-high 8.4 rebounds per game and he has a good chance of continuing that success against Denver. Yes, going up against Jokic will pose to be a tough matchup, but Zubac has faired well against the Nuggets this season, averaging 10.5 RPG in the two contests in which he played over 20 minutes. Add in the fact that Denver is tied for surrendering the ninth-most rebounds per game over its last five and the opening is there for Zubac to find success.

3. Nah'Shon Hyland - Assists: Over 3.5 (-105)

Nah'Shon "Bones" Hyland wasn't the biggest name coming out of the 2021 NBA Draft, however, his play has earned him a bigger role with the Nuggets lately. The rookie point guard has averaged 27.6 minutes played in his last four games (up from his season average of 18.4), leading to him averaging 4.5 assists in that span. What's even more encouraging is that he's hit the over on this prop in four of his last five games, including each of the most recent three. The Clippers are solid defensively, the Nuggets are averaging 28.3 APG against them in three previous meetings this season. Considering how that's above Denver's season average of 27.4 APG (No. 3), Hyland has a pretty realistic shot at hitting the over on this prop.
