With eight games on the schedule for NBA Monday night, there are a number of players whose performances are under the microscope.
When the Bucks face the Magic, Antetokounmpo will be looked at to be a playmaker as much as he is a scorer. When the Hornets host the LA Clippers, Rozier will have to create opportunities against the Clippers' stout defense. And in the marquee matchup of the night, Devin Booker and his Suns look to earn their 11th straight victory over Luka Doncic.
Let's check out the bets!
Giannis Antetokounmpo is well known for his all-around play, but he'll want to create for his teammates against the lesser Orlando Magic. At DraftKings, Antetokounmpo is a +125 to clear 5.5 assists when he takes on Orlando.
On the season, Antetokounmpo is averaging 31.8 points, 11.2 rebounds, and 5.5 assists on 54.2% shooting from the field and 22.0% from three-point range. Despite missing out on his last game, Antetokounmpo has averaged 36.2 points, 10.2 rebounds, and 5.8 assists over his previous five matches.
The Magic are a long and athletic team that are sure to swarm Antetokounmpo at the rim. After a night off, expect Antetokounmpo to be rejuvenated and productive.
Terry Rozier has once again taken on lead playmaking duties for the Hornets with LaMelo Ball unavailable due to injury. At PointsBet, Rozier is a +120 to clear 6.5 assists when he takes on the LA Clippers.
On the season, Rozier is averaging 21.2 points, 5.7 assists, and 4.7 rebounds on 38.7% shooting from the field and 29.6% shooting from three-point range. However over his last four games, Rozier has averaged 23.8 points, 6.5 assists, and 4.0 rebounds on 43.4% from the field and 23.8% from deep.
The Clippers own one of the most disruptive defenses in the NBA, allowing just 24.0 assists per game. However, shorthanded and likely to limit the Hornets in the halfcourt, expect Rozier to lead a fast-paced offense.
Devin Booker continues to lead the Phoenix Suns this season, now sitting at the top of the Western Conference. At FanDuel, Booker is a -113 to fall short of 30.5 points when he faces the Dallas Mavericks.
On the season, Booker is averaging 29.5 points, 5.9 assists, and 5.2 rebounds on 49.5% shooting from the field and 39.0% shooting from three-point range. Over his last three games though, Booker has been averaging 45.3 points, 6.0 assists, and 5.3 rebounds on 66.7% shooting from the field and 57.9% from deep.
Booker has been excellent this season and he's sure to maintain his offensive output when he takes on the Dallas Mavericks. Without Chris Paul in the lineup, Booker's increased usage primes him for another big scoring night.
