The NBA In-Season Tournament enters its quarterfinal stage today on Tuesday with one matchup from each conference. Which teams will progress to the semifinal with a chance to win the first-ever NBA Cup?
Here are our favorite NBA player prop picks for Monday.
Tatum is the leading scorer on a Boston Celtics team that many regard as the best in the league. Although he only scored 21 in each of his team’s last two outings, he’s had numerous explosive outings and is the go-to guy in big moments.
The Indiana Pacers play at the fastest pace and have the second-worst defensive rating in the entire league. They also score more points than any other team, which means the Celtics are going to get a ton of looks against a terrible defense and will be incentivized to score as quickly as possible. That should go to the benefit of Tatum as Boston looks for a spot in the semifinal.
Haliburton is off to a ridiculous start to the year and is firmly in the MVP race. He has a ridiculous stat line of 27 points, 11.8 rebounds, and 44.7% three-point shooting for a team that is on pace to set the all-time record for the highest offensive rating in a season.
Despite Haliburton’s excellence, betting the under could turn out to be a worthy investment. He hasn’t recorded more than 10 assists in three straight games and will have the task of getting past Jrue Holiday, widely regarded as the best defender in the NBA. Boston also holds opponents to the third-lowest field goal percentage, which means assists will be hard to come by.
Fox is fourth in the league in scoring at 30.3 points per night. He scored 40 points just two games ago, split the over/under four apiece in his last eight games, and is taking more field goals and three-pointers than he ever has in his career.
Both the Sacramento Kings and New Orleans Pelicans like to play fast, whether that be in transition or by quickly getting into their actions in the halfcourt. The Pelicans have disruptors but don’t have great on-ball defenders (aside from Jose Alvarado), and Fox’s hot hand combined with his clutch scoring gives him a strong chance to score 30+.
The Pelicans rely heavily on Jonas Valanciunas to clear the glass since no other player averages 6+ rebounds. Ingram, who averaged 5.2, figures to be in a good spot since the Kings take so many shots and are third in three-point attempts per game, which leads to long rebounds.
Ingram rarely gets fewer than four or more than seven rebounds. Although he’s been leaning more toward the under recently, he brought down six boards in his last game and is going against a Kings team that doesn’t have good rebounding wings. The matchup is there, and he just has to capitalize.
After a slow start to the year, Huerter picked up his scoring and is up to 13 points on 38.6% three-point shooting. He makes 2.6 triples per game and sank 3+ in two of his last three games (making four in both instances). He went under four straight times before that but also went over in four straight games before that.
It’s no secret that Huerter is streaky. In fact, despite needing to only make three to cash the over, all but two of his “over” games resulted in him making at least four threes. He might need to make his first shot to get his confidence going, but Huerter absolutely has the ability to make at least three threes, if not more.
