There are seven games on the NBA's Monday schedule and there's more than a couple of interesting props worth keeping an eye on!
When the Boston Celtics play the Orlando Magic, Franz Wagner looks to maintain his recent positive play. Dejounte Murray is hoping to make an impact on the glass when the Atlanta Hawks and Chicago Bulls play. And Brook Lopez's production is under the microscope when the Milwaukee Bucks play the Detroit Pistons!
Let's check out the bets!
Franz Wagner continues his fantastic and productive sophomore campaign for the Orlando Magic. At PointsBet, Wagner is a +100 to clear 22.5 points and assists combined when he takes on the Boston Celtics.
On the season, Wagner is averaging 20.5 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 3.4 assists on 49.2% from the field and 37.1% from three-point range. He's been excellent over his last five games as well, averaging 24.8 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 3.2 assists on 53.0% from the field and 48.4% from three-point range. He'll look to maintain that form against a Celtics team that held him to his seventh-lowest points total this season in their last meeting.
The last time Wagner played the Celtics he posted a modest 12 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists in a win. Given his current form expect Wagner's production to be improved compared to their last meeting, even if it doesn't result in a win.

Dejounte Murray is looking to carry over his excellent form into this crucial Eastern Conference clash. At DraftKings Sportsbook, Murray is a +105 to clear 5.5 rebounds when he takes on the Chicago Bulls.
On the season, Murray is averaging 21.0 points, 6.1 assists, and 5.5 rebounds on 46.1% from the field and 37.0% from three-point range. He's been excellent over his last five games as well, averaging 28.0 points, 6.4 assists, and 5.6 rebounds on 59.8% from the field and 55.2% from three-point range.
The Bulls match up particularly well with the Hawks, so Murray will need to maintain his intensity on the glass. Given Chicago's preference toward halfcourt play, expect Murray to grab the ball off the boards and push the ball in transition.
One of the NBA's most capable paint defenders, Brook Lopez' production is under the microscope in this game. At FanDuel Sportsbook, Lopez is a -104 to fall short of 20.5 points and rebounds combined.
On the season, Lopez is averaging 14.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 1.2 assists on 50.2% from the field and 39.0% from three-point range. Over his last five games though, Lopez has averaged just 13.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.0 assists on 45.8% from the field and 39.3% from three-point range.
It isn't that Lopez isn't a productive player, but certain matchups don't favor him. Against a Pistons team who have size and energy in the paint, Lopez doesn't project to have the scoring space or rebounding edge.
