NBA Player Props February 28

With 10 games set for the NBA's Tuesday night schedule, we're keeping an eye on some interesting props on some of the league's most interesting players.

When the Washington Wizards and Atlanta Hawks face-off, Dejounte Murray's overall playmaking will be the focus. For Dorian Finney-Smith, his scoring will be scrutinized when his Brooklyn Nets host the Milwaukee Bucks. And when the Chicago Bulls face the Toronto Raptors, Scottie Barnes' new role as a primary playmaker will be key to his team's success.

Let's check out the bets!

Washington Wizards @ Atlanta Hawks: Best Prop Bets

Dejounte Murray PTS+AST O 25.5 (+105) @ PointsBet

With the Atlanta Hawks looking to secure their place amongst the top teams in the Eastern Conference, Dejounte Murray's production will be key to their success. At PointsBet, Murray is a +105 to clear 25.5 points and assists combined when he faces the Washington Wizards.

On the season, Murray is averaging 20.9 points, 6.1 assists, and 5.5 rebounds on 46.7% shooting from the field and 36.7% from three-point range. Through his last five games, Murray has averaged 19.4 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 4.4 assists on 50.0% shooting from the field and 36.0% from three-point range.

Murray has cleared 25.5 points and assists combined in two of his last five games, while also clearing it in 28 of his 56 appearances this season. The Washington Wizards have a solid perimeter defense, so Murray's ability to create for himself and others will be crucial to their success. We expect him to clear 25.5 points and assists combined for the 29th time this season.

Milwaukee Bucks @ Brooklyn Nets: Best Prop Bets

Dorian Finney-Smith Points U 8.5 (+100) @ DraftKings Sportsbook

Dorian Finney-Smith was thought of as just a small addition to the Brooklyn Nets' greater plan, but he's proven to be valuable in many different ways. At DraftKings Sportsbook, Finney-Smith is a +100 to fall short of 8.5 points when he faces the Milwaukee Bucks.

On the season, Finney-Smith has averaged 8.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 1.5 assists on 40.8% shooting from the field and 34.2% from three-point range. Since joining the Brooklyn Nets, Finney-Smith has averaged 6.5 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 1.3 assists on 34.9% shooting from the field and 23.1% from three-point range.

Finney-Smith is known as more of a defensive player than a scoring option. While he's capable in certain spaces, he's cleared 8.5 points in just 22 of his 46 games between the Dallas Mavericks and Brooklyn Nets. Against a tough Milwaukee Bucks team, we see the limited Finney-Smith falling short of 8.5 points.

Chicago Bulls @ Toronto Raptors: Best Prop Bets

Scottie Barnes Assists O 4.5 (+100) @ Caesars Sportsbook

Since the trade deadline, Toronto Raptors forward Scottie Barnes has seen his role change from big man to playmaker. At Caesars Sportsbook, Barnes is a +100 to clear 4.5 assists when he takes on the Chicago Bulls.

On the season, Barnes has averaged 15.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 4.8 assists on 45.3% shooting from the field and 30.1% from three-point range. After his role changed with the acquisition of Jakob Poeltl, Barnes has averaged 15.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 4.8 assists on 41.0% shooting from the field and 31.6% from three-point range.

It'll be to Barnes' benefit that Fred VanVleet is expected to return to the lineup for the Raptors, as he provides another shooting option for the frontcourt-heavy Raptors. Against a traditionally lined-up Chicago Bulls team, we see Barnes flourishing as a playmaker and clearing 4.5 assists with ease.
