Tuesday's NBA slate of games includes a showdown between the Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Mavericks as the 5.5-point road favorites over the Lakers.

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

Mavericks vs Lakers Player Props

1. Luka Doncic - Points: Over 31.5 (-112)

Things are clicking for Luka Doncic lately. The Slovenian superstar is averaging an impressive 34.7 PPG over his last 10 outings, which includes a quartet of performances of at least 40 points. He's also been incredibly efficient from three-point range over that stretch, converting on .412 of his shots from beyond the arc. Considering how the Lakers own the seventh-worst scoring defense this season, there's a great opportunity for Doncic to have another major performance.

2. Jalen Brunson - Rebounds: Under 3.5 (+110)

Jalen Brunson has averaged a career-high 3.8 rebounds this season. However, he hasn't been as effective lately. Brunson is averaging 3.0 RPG over his last seven outings and has finished with the under on this prop in each of his last three games. While there are always rebounding opportunities against the Lakers, Brunson needs to prove that he can be reliable when it comes to this prop. Until he proves otherwise, the under seems like the more likely outcome tonight.

3. Luka Doncic - 4+ Made Threes: +196

As mentioned earlier, Doncic has been great from range in recent weeks. While hitting at least four three-pointers is difficult for most NBA players, Doncic has accomplished that feat in seven of his last 12 games. He's averaging 4.3 threes made in his last three games and could continue that momentum against a Lakers team that struggles at defending the perimeter. Los Angeles is surrendering the 12th-most threes per game, while also allowing opponents to convert on a .382 rating over its last three games (No. 23). Assuming these trends continue, Doncic should find a lot of success at the three-point line.
