Wednesday's NBA schedule has 13 games, including an exciting clash between the Los Angeles Clippers and Denver Nuggets. The Nuggets are an 8.5-point home favorite and the over/under is set at 213 points.
Here's three of the best prop bets for the Clippers-Nuggets game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Clippers-Nuggets Prop Bets Tonight
1. Reggie Jackson - Points: Under 15.5 (-106)
The Clippers are struggling to score the basketball without their top stars Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. Reggie Jackson has taken on a larger role on offense, but it has not been paying off so far. The 11th-year pro has scored less than 16 points in four of his last five games. He was only able to cash the over one time thanks to a season-high 13 made free throws. Denver lines up to be a tough matchup for Jackson, too. The Nuggets defend the perimeter well and allow an opponent three-point shooting percentage of just 33.9% (T-No. 7 in NBA). That does not bode well for Jackson given rarely gets his work done by the rim.
2. Nikola Jokic - Rebounds: Over 13.5 (-108)
The Nuggets are leaning on their All-Star big man Nikola Jokic even more than usual lately. The reigning NBA MVP has been especially great in terms of his rebounding. Jokic is averaging 15.5 boards per contest over his last 12 games and cashed the over on this prop eight times during that span. The Clippers give up the sixth-most rebounds in the NBA and simply have no one to box out Jokic in the paint. Keep in mind the 26-year-old has already brought down 35 boards in two games against the Clippers this season. He should have no trouble destroying this team once again.
3. Will Barton - Assists: Over 3.5 (-122)
This prop bet comes down to one thing and one thing only: minutes. Will Barton has posted as least 4 assists in each of the six games in which he played in at least 30 minutes. There's no reason to believe head coach Michael Malone would keep Barton on the bench too long tonight. As 8.5-point home favorites, Denver is expected to pull away in the second half. However, the Clippers have the capability of keeping this thing within single digits. That should give Barton plenty of opportunities to find his open teammates in this game.
