Brandon Ingram is one of the league's most promising young scorers, but his auxiliary production needs to be noticed. At Caesars Sportsbook, Ingram is a +118 to clear 5.5 rebounds when he faces the Charlotte Hornets. While he has yet to be productive on the glass as of late, he should thrive against a Hornets team that allows opponents to succeed on the boards.

On the season, Ingram is averaging 23.5 points, 5.1 assists, and 4.9 rebounds on 47.6% from the field and 40.1% from the three-point range. Through his last four games since returning from injury, Ingram has averaged 27.8 points, 7.0 assists, and 4.0 rebounds on 51.9% from the field and 46.7% from three-point range. He's been terrific against the Hornets this season, averaging 28.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 7.0 assists on 50.0% from the field.

Since returning from injury, Ingram has failed to collect six or more rebounds in three of his four games. He's also only cleared 5.5 rebounds in 12 of his 35 games this season. The Hornets allow their opponents to collect 46.5 rebounds per game (29th in the NBA), so Ingram should have plenty of opportunity to grab six or more rebounds, given the pace and lack of rebounding presence on the Hornets.

New York Knicks vs Orlando Magic: Best Prop Bets

Julius Randle Rebounds Over 8.5 (+115) @ DraftKings Sportsbook

Julius Randle has been in All-Star form this season, but his rebounding has dropped below his season averages through recent games. At DraftKings Sportsbook, Randle is a +115 to clear 8.5 rebounds when he faces the Orlando Magic. After two games with limited rebounding success, Randle should bounce back against a Magic team he's played well against this season.

On the season, Randle has averaged 25.6 points, 10.2 rebounds, and 4.1 assists on 46.1% shooting from the field and 34.6% from three-point range. Through his last five games, where the Knicks have gone 2-3, Randle has averaged 30.6 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 3.4 assists on 43.8% shooting from the field and 31.9% from three-point range. Against the Orlando Magic this season, Randle has averaged 23.5 points, 13.0 rebounds, and 5.0 assists on 50.0% from the field and 31.6% from three-point range.

In his last five games, Randle has collected nine or more rebounds just once. However, he's cleared 8.5 rebounds in 48 of his 73 appearances on the season. Randle has faced two capable frontcourts in Denver and Minnesota in back-to-back games. He should succeed against a long but inexperienced Magic team he's averaging 13.0 rebounds against in two games this season.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Brooklyn Nets: Best Prop Bets

Cameron Johnson Three-Pointers Over +2.5 (+106) @ Caesars Sportsbook

Even if the Brooklyn Nets have yet to be particularly successful since acquiring Johnson, he remains one of the NBA's most coveted three-point shooters. At Caesars Sportsbook, Johnson is a +106 to clear 2.5 threes when he faces the Cleveland Cavaliers. After a loss to the Cavaliers in his last game, Johnson and the Nets project to bounce back.

Since joining the Brooklyn Nets, Johnson has averaged 16.5 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.9 assists, and 2.4 threes per game on 43.0% from the field and 34.2% from three-point range. He's averaged just 15.4 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists, and 2.0 threes per game over his last five matches with the Nets - four of which have been losses. In his previous meeting with the Cavaliers, Johnson posted 16 points, four assists, three rebounds, and two threes on 36.4% from the field and 50.0% from three.

Despite the Nets' loss, Johnson was solid from deep in his last game. Through his previous five games, Johnson has cleared 2.5 threes just once. On the season, Johnson has hit more than 2.5 threes in 11 of his 33 games. With the defense focused on limiting Bridges, Johnson should find more success from three against a team that allows their opponents to hit on 37.0% efficiency (22nd in the NBA).
