Los Angeles Clippers, Kawhi Leonard
The Bet: Over 6.5 Rebounds O (+106)
Kawhi is the primary playmaker for the Clippers, leading the team with a 29.4% usage rate. Playing in 16 games this season, he has averaged 34 minutes, scoring 25 points with five rebounds and five assists. Although he has reached the seven-assist mark in only four games this season, the amount of time he plays on the floor and high usage against a Knicks team who ranks 11th with 45.9 rebounds to opponents per season should trend Leonard toward the over (+106).
Leonard currently projects for 7.4 rebounds against the Knicks.
The Clippers are an 8-point road favorite on FanDuel Sportsbook against the Knicks in a game with a 210.5 total.
Washington Wizards, Bradley Beal
The Bet: Over 31.5 Points O (-106)
The Wizards are the fastest team in the league. They are playing at a 104.3 possession per game pace, scoring 114.7 points per game. Combined with a matchup against the Brooklyn Nets, who play at the eighth-fastest pace at 101.4 possessions per game and allowing 116.2 points to opponents this season, it should be a prime spot for Wizards primary playmaker Bradley Beal to reach the over (-106).
Beal leads the Wizards in usage rate at 38.4%. Playing in 14 games this season, he has averaged 35 minutes, 34 points, five rebounds, and five assists, reaching the 32-point mark in six games. He currently projects for 34.5 points against the Nets.
The Wizards are an 8-point home underdog against the Warriors on FanDuel Sportsbook, in a game with a 244 total.
Cleveland Cavaliers, Collin Sexton
The Bet: Over 2.5 Rebounds O (-138)
Collin Sexton looks to have returned to form for the Cavaliers. Appearing in 14 games this season for the Cavaliers, he has averaged 34 minutes, 24 points, 2.6 rebounds and four assists, reaching the three-rebound mark in five games. He is also second on the team in usage rate at 29%, only behind Andre Drummond.
Sexton currently projects for 3.6 rebounds against the Minnesota Timberwolves, who rank seventh in opponent rebounds allowed with 46.7 rebounds per game. In what looks to be an up-tempo matchup for the Cavaliers, look for Sexton to trend toward the over (-138).
The Cavaliers are a 3.5-point road favorite against the Timberwolves on FanDuel Sportsbook, in a game with a 218 total.
