Tuesday's slate of NBA games includes a showdown between the Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz.

Here are three of the best prop bets for this regular season game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Nuggets vs Jazz Prop Bets Tonight - 10/26/2021

1. Nikola Jokic - Rebounds: Over 11.5 (-122)

Last year, the Jazz were one of the best teams when it came to limiting opponents' rebounds, giving up 49.8 boards per game (6th). That isn't the case this year with Utah giving up 60 rebounds per game — the fourth-worst average. That's fantastic news for Nikola Jokic, who's averaging a mind-blowing 16.0 RPG in three games so far. That average will likely drop at some point, but there's a good chance that the 2021 NBA MVP will hit the over tonight. He averaged 11.7 RPG in three games against Utah last season.

2. Mike Conley - Assists: Over 5.5

Mike Conley has averaged just 3.6 assists per game this season, which is below his career average of 5.7. Fortunately, he gets a matchup against a Denver team that's surrendering 24.3 APG (19th). Another bright spot is that the Nuggets gave up a total of 17 assists to point guards against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday. It's also promising to know that Conley averaged 8.0 APG against the Nuggets last season, too. With FanDuel Sportsbook listing tonight's total at 219, there's a good shot that there'll be a sizeable amount of points on the board. If that's the case, Conley could find himself setting up teammates all night long.

3. Michael Porter Jr. - Threes Made: Under 2.5 (-170)

Michael Porter Jr. has proven to be a decent three-point shooter in his career when given the chance, shooting .436 from beyond the arc. However, he's averaging just 2.0 three-pointers made on a .353 percentage this season. It's a small sample size, but things don't look like they'll change tonight. The Jazz have allowed an NBA-low 7.5 threes made while holding opponents to just .211 from beyond the arc (1st). Combining that with the fact that the Nuggets have scored just 11.7 three-points per game so far (21st), it doesn't look promising for Porter tonight.
