Trae Young Over 26.5 Points (-111)
Trae Young should be able to score well tonight against the New Orleans Pelicans, and that has me on the over for his points prop.
The Pels are giving up the sixth-most three-point tries per night to point guards (8.8), which suits Young's skillset. The game's 237.0-point total and 1.0-point spread don't hurt things, either, when it comes to this over.
Young has dropped in at least 27 points in three of his past four games. He's scoring 27.0 points per game for the season.
A lot of boxes are checked here.
Nikola Vucevic Under 11.5 Rebounds (-102)
The Chicago Bulls are on the road at the Memphis Grizzlies, and it's a difficult rebounding matchup for Nikola Vucevic.
The Grizz are holding the center position to 12.8 boards per game, the second-fewest. They rank third overall in rebound rate. The Bulls rank 21st.
Vucevic is averaging 11.2 rebounds per game on the year and 11.3 on the second leg of back-to-backs, which is the situation tonight for Chicago after they played on Monday.
Given the back-to-back and matchup with Memphis, the blowout risk is very real in this one. Chicago is a 9.5-point road underdog and could be without DeMar DeRozan, who is questionable. A blowout would likely result in fewer minutes for Vucevic and is another reason to back the under.
