The 2021-22 NBA season is in full swing. Tuesday's basketball action features a showdown between the Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets.
Here's three of the best prop bets for Lakers-Nets, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Lakers vs Nets Player Props
1. James Harden - Points: Over 28.5 (-108)
James Harden will be the only active member of Brooklyn's 'Big 3' tonight since Kevin Durant is still injured and Kyrie Irving can't play at home. With Harden being the No. 1 option, he has a great chance to hit the over on this prop. He's averaged 26.5 points per game in 43 meetings against the Lakers and had a 36-point performance against them on Christmas Day 2021. In a game where the Nets need him to go off, expect a big performance from Harden.
2. Patty Mills - Rebounds: Over 2.5 (+120)
As a point guard, Patty Mills isn't exactly known for his rebounding. However, he is averaging a career-high 2.2 boards per game. While that wouldn't give him the over on this prop, he has a great matchup against a Lakers team that's surrendered the most rebounds to point guards this season. He's finished with the over on this prop in each of his last three games, which adds to the credibility that he can do it at least one more time on Tuesday.
3. James Harden - Threes Made: Under 2.5 (-118)
Harden hasn't done that great of a job shooting the ball from beyond the arc this season. His 2.4 made threes per game is his worst average since the 2013-14 NBA season. He's finished with the over on this prop just once in his last five games, averaging 1.8 made threes per game over that stretch. Even with him being Brooklyn's top scoring option, it's still too risky to take the over due to his inconsistency from beyond the three-point line.
