Thursday's NBA slate of games includes a showdown between the Washington Wizards and Brooklyn Nets. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Nets as the 4.5-point home favorites over the Wizards.

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

Wizards vs Nets Player Props

1. Seth Curry - Points: Over 17.5 (-106)

With Kevin Durant still hurt and Kyrie Irving being unavailable for home games, the Nets will look to Seth Curry to lead the offensive charge. The 31-year-old veteran has averaged 21.5 points in two games with Brooklyn and will attempt to continue that momentum. The good news is that the Wizards have a fairly average defense, surrendering 110.0 PPG (No. 17). Their backcourt is also far less threatening now that Bradley Beal is out for the season. Taking that into account, and the fact that Curry will likely see double-digit field goal attempts, pencil him in for the over.

2. Kyle Kuzma - Threes Made: Over 2.5 (+132)

Kyle Kuzma isn't known for being the best three-point shooter, however, he enters tonight's contest after going 6-for-12 from range against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday. While that was his first time hitting the over on this prop in the last six games, there's a good chance that he finishes with at least a trio of three-pointers tonight. On one hand, Brooklyn's defense is lacking without Durant or the newly-acquired Ben Simmons. Secondly, Kuzma is Washington's second-best scorer and will likely be the No. 1 option now that Beal's season is over. With that sort of volume, a few threes could fall his way while providing bettors with some nice value in the process.

3. Andre Drummond - Rebounds: Under 12.5 (-122)

Andre Drummond impressed fans in only his second game as a Net, finishing with 19 rebounds on Wednesday. While many are clammoring for an encore performance, it's best to temper expectations. After all, he's finished with the under on this prop 32 times in his last 34 games. Even though he was Joel Embiid's backup for that stretch, Drummond's rebounding numbers have fluctuated for a while now. He also hasn't seen a consistent starting role in some time, and Wednesday's performance could just be an anomaly. Until Drummond can prove that he can consistently rebound as a starter again, it's wiser and safer to go with the under.
