With 10 matchups on the schedule for Tuesday night, some of the NBA's key stars will be the focus of some interesting props!
When the Philadelphia 76ers take on the Washington Wizards, Bradley Beal's scoring will be key. Toronto Raptors star Pascal Siakam has had an incredible scoring run as of late, but his playmaking will be put to the test against a tough LA Clippers defense. And when the Oklahoma City Thunder take on the San Antonio Spurs, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander's three-point shooting will be the focus against a poor shooting defense.
Let's check out the bets!
Bradley Beal is the key player for the Washington Wizards in this matchup due to his incredible scoring potential. At DraftKings, Beal is a +100 to clear 23.5 points when he faces off against the Philadelphia 76ers.
On the season, Beal is averaging 23.7 points, 5.2 assists, and 3.7 rebounds on 52.7% shooting from the field and 33.0% from three-point range. Since coming back from injury, Beal has averaged 27.5 points, 4.5 assists, and 3.5 rebounds on 54.8% from the field through four games.
Beal has cleared 23.5 in his last four games, while also clearing 23.5 in 14 of his 22 games played this season. Philadelphia play strong defense, but Beal should be in the situation to succeed with most of Washington's key players able to support him in this match. Expect Beal to clear 23.5 against the Sixers.
Toronto Raptors forward Pascal Siakam has been on a tear as of late, putting up MVP-worthy numbers despite the Raptors' lack of overall success. At PointsBet, Siakam is a +105 to clear 6.5 assists when he takes on the LA Clippers.
On the season, Siakam is averaging 26.2 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 6.9 assists on 48.4% from the field and 35.1% from the three-point range. Over his recent Eastern Conference Player of the Week winning games though, Siakam averaged 35.8 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 6.8 assists on 51.1% from the field and 41.7% from three-point range.
Siakam will be the focus of the Clippers' defense, a team that own the league's third-best scoring defense and scoring efficiency allowed. The Raptors' star man probably won't get the scoring numbers he's looking for, but his playmaking has been excellent this season. Clearing 6.5 assists is well within Siakam's ability, it'll just be up to his teammates to convert.

Canadian superstar Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is putting up an incredible season in his fifth NBA season, possibly even All-Star worthy. At FanDuel, Gilgeous-Alexander is a +164 to hit over 1.5 threes against the San Antonio Spurs.
On the season, Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 31.6 points, 5.7 assists, 4.8 rebounds, and 1.1 threes on 50.2% from the field and 35.2% from the three-point range. Over his last four games though, Gilgeous-Alexander has averaged 35.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists, and 1.8 threes on 48.4% from the field and 53.8% from three.
Over his last five games, Gilgeous-Alexander has made seven threes on 13 attempts, as he's given up playmaking duties to Giddey more often with his availability. The San Antonio Spurs are actually seventh in three-point attempts allowed (32.4 per game), but allow their opponents to shoot 39.3% from deep (30th in the NBA). Gilgeous-Alexander may be a low-volume three-point shooter, but he'll have some great looks.
