With nine exciting games on the schedule, there are some key star men that are worth keeping an eye on this evening.
When the New York Knicks take on the Washington Wizards, Jalen Brunson's ability to get on the glass is under the microscope. As always, Stephen Curry's three-point shooting will be a focus when the Golden State Warriors take on the San Antonio Spurs. And Franz Wagner's rebounding ability will be tracked when the Orlando Magic face the Utah Jazz.
Let's check out the bets!
Jalen Brunson is putting on an All-Star-worthy season and he'll look to continue his fantastic play in his next game. At PointsBet, Jalen Brunson is a +100 to clear 3.5 rebounds when he faces the Washington Wizards.
On the season, Brunson is averaging 21.9 points, 6.4 assists, and 3.5 rebounds on 47.2% from the field and 39.0% from three-point range. Brunson has been particularly aggressive on the glass in recent games though, averaging 33.2 points, 5.6 assists, and 5.2 rebounds per game in 39.6 minutes per game.
Brunson is expected to maintain the quality of his play when he takes on the Washington Wizards. Considering Washington may be missing big men Vernon Carey Jr., Daniel Gafford, and Kristaps Porzingis, expect Brunson to be aggressive in getting the ball off the glass to push the pace.
Stephen Curry is, of course, one of the greatest shooters to grace the NBA's history. At DraftKings Sportsbook, Curry is a +105 to clear 4.5 threes when he takes on the San Antonio Spurs.
On the season, Stephen Curry is averaging 29.7 points, 6.7 assists, 6.4 rebounds, and 5.0 threes per game on 49.5% from the field and 42.9% from three-point range. In his first game back after an 11-game absence, Curry knocked down five threes which went toward his 24 points on the night.
When it comes to three-point shooting, Curry isn't gun-shy. He put up 15 three-point attempts in his last game, which should be greatly adjusted against the defense-averse San Antonio Spurs. Count on Curry to meet his season average and clear 4.5 threes.

Franz Wagner has had an excellent sophomore season so far, and he'll look to maintain his performance in his next match. At Caesars Sportsbook, Wagner is a +100 to clear 3.5 rebounds when he takes on the Utah Jazz.
On the season, Franz Wagner is averaging 20.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 3.4 assists on 49.0% from the field and 35.3% from three-point range. Wagner's been light on the boards in his last four games though, averaging 22.8 points, 2.0 rebounds, and 2.0 assists in 34.0 minutes per game.
Wagner is a better rebounder than his recent numbers represent. He's actually cleared 3.5 rebounds in 21 of his 41 games this season. Considering Utah's pace, the tempo alone should help Wagner's chances at clearing 3.5 boards.
