Nuggets @ Trail Blazers


PLAYER: C.J. McCollum

BET: 🔥 OVER 21.5 points

The Blazers number two option was poor the other night and even an average shooting probably would've seen Dame's unreal performance rewarded.

In saying that, McCollum is too good to have another bad game, and with the series back in front of his adoring fans, we've got him putting up big numbers tonight.

This may not be an offer you can use on props but it's still absolutely unmissable! Sign up with DraftKings Sportsbook today, then place a $5 bet on any team at the moneyline. If they win, you'll get $200 in free bets!


Suns @ Lakers


PLAYER: LeBron James

BET: 🔥 UNDER 31.5 points with PointsBet (-110)

It's been almost three months since LeBron James scored 30 in a game, even after returning from his injury layoff. While many might be expecting an explosive performance from a point production standpoint, the trend of LeBron lately has been to act as a facilitator rather than a scorer. The Lakers can still win if James doesn't score 30. In fact, they have a better chance if he's not the one being relied on for scoring.
