Two Western Conference teams will square off on Monday night, as the Oklahoma City Thunder travel to face the Los Angeles Lakers. LA currently boasts a four-game win streak, although the Thunder have been solid on the road (7-4 away).

With that in mind, here are the three best prop bets for this Thunder-Lakers clash, per odds from FanDuel Sportsbook.

Thunder vs Lakers Prop Bets

1. LeBron James - Points: Over 27.5 (-118)

While LeBron James has 28-plus points in just six contests this year, it's hard to pick the under here. He's averaging 30 points per game (PPG) over his last two games, will face a Thunder defense that's allowing the eighth-most PPG this season (113.9), and his star teammate Anthony Davis is officially out due to injury. The stars are aligning for a points explosion for LeBron.

2. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander - Assists: Over 5.5 (-140)

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is lighting up the box score this year as the Thunder's No. 1 option. One highlight from SGA's season is his assists per game average (6.4), which blows his previous career high (3.3) out of the water. With veteran George Hill out, that leaves more ball-handling responsibility for Gilgeous-Alexander, who has hit 6-plus assists in three of his last five games.

3. Dennis Schroder - Points: Over 15.5 (-110)

Dennis Schroder is in the running for the league's Sixth Man of the Year by bringing a spark off of the bench. He's averaging 14.2 PPG this year, immediately finding a scoring role on his new team. He'll get to face his old team on Monday, giving him extra motivation to hit the over. Plus, he's scored at least 16 points in each of his last three contests.
