NBA Player Props December 20

With the NBA putting on a more limited schedule for Tuesday night, expect some big performances from some in-form stars.

When the Bulls face the Heat, expect DeMar DeRozan to maintain the playmaking form he had the last time he took on Miami. The Golden State Warriors haven't been on a great run of form, but Jordan Poole's scoring will be the focus when they take on the New York Knicks. And when the Memphis Grizzlies take on the Denver Nuggets, Dillon Brooks will be looked at to keep up his sharpshooting play.

Let's check out the bets!

Chicago Bulls @ Miami Heat: Best Prop Bets

DeMar DeRozan Assists O 4.5 (-105) @ DraftKings Sportsbook

DeMar DeRozan continues to lead an underperforming Chicago Bulls team, despite his own ability to produce regardless of opponent. At DraftKings, DeRozan is a -105 to clear 4.5 assists when he takes on the Miami Heat.

On the season, DeRozan is averaging 25.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 4.7 assists on 50.4% shooting from the field and 31.0% from three-point range. DeRozan has ramped up his playmaking recently though, going from 2 to 4 to 6 assists through his last three games. Against a team of excellent defenders, DeRozan will be forced to create off of his individual offense.

Out of DeRozan's 29 appearances this season, he's cleared 4.5 assists in 15 of those games. He had a monster-like 37 points, 9 assists, and 6 rebound effort last time he played the Heat, so expect another all-around performance from him this time out.

Golden State Warriors @ New York Knicks: Best Prop Bets

Jordan Poole Points U 26.5 (-102) @ FanDuel Sportsbook

Despite the Golden State Warriors' shaky form, Jordan Poole has been in excellent scoring form through his recent games. At FanDuel, Poole is a -102 to score fewer than 26.5 points when he faces the New York Knicks.

On the season, Poole is averaging 19.0 points, 4.6 assists, and 2.2 rebounds on 43.6% shooting from the field and 33.1% from three-point range. He's been excellent over his last three games though, averaging 30.7 points, 5.0 assists, and 2.3 rebounds on 49.2% shooting from the field and 37.0% from three-point range.

The public is expecting Poole to clear 26.5 in this game, despite only doing so in six of his 31 appearances this season. Without Curry in the lineup, he's enjoyed a bigger role, but against a tough Knicks defense, it's unlikely he'll find the same success.

Memphis Grizzlies @ Denver Nuggets: Best Prop Bets

Dillon Brooks O 19.5 (-115) @ Caesars Sportsbook

🔥 Claimed by 188 people this week!

On a solid run of shooting form, Dillon Brooks will be leaned on for the Memphis Grizzlies to succeed when they face the Nuggets. At Caesars Sportsbook, Brooks is a -115 to clear 19.5 points when he takes on Denver.

On the season, Brooks is averaging 18.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 2.9 assists on 40.7% shooting from the field and 35.4% from three-point range. Over his last five games, Brooks has been great, averaging 21.6 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 3.0 assists on 46.3% shooting from the field and 41.9% from three-point range.

Brooks has cleared 19.5 points in just nine of his 26 games this season, his recent run of form is quite promising. On top of the fact that the Nuggets are a team that allow teams to shoot 36.8% from three-point range, expect another big scoring night from Brooks.
