Dorian Finney-Smith Over 4.5 Rebounds (-106)
The Brooklyn Nets are hosting the Atlanta Hawks featuring a massive 240.5 over/under.
This is one of the highest totals on the board, and we should see plenty of back-and-forth action, which will put several players in great spots for production. We turn to Dorian Finney-Smith for his rebounding prop of 4.5, and I'm going with the over.
The Nets (21st) are in a solid pace-up spot because the Hawks are the ninth-fastest team in the league, giving us plenty of possessions -- and rebounds -- for Finney-Smith.
Getting rebounds is something he has been consistent with, as he has been over this 4.5 mark in four of his last five games. That should be able to continue tonight because the Hawks are allowing 10.57 rebounds per game to opposing power forwards, which is the fifth-worst in the league.
Finney-Smith has a good matchup and an elite game environment to continue this trend.
Keegan Murray Over 2.5 Made Threes (-108)
Keegan Murray is legitimately setting NBA records.
Murray has set the record for the most (188) three-pointers made by a rookie in NBA history. If that is the case, we have to go to over 2.5 made threes; there's no other choice. Murray has been over this mark in seven of his last 10 games, and with a matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers on tap, he shouldn't be slowing down.
For the season, Portland allows 12.3 made threes from their opponents per game, which is 15th in the league. However, we have seen that number climb to 14.0 per game over their last three games, which is the eighth-worst in the league. The Trail Blazers are rolling out a B-team of players, and it's clearly showing.
Mitchell Robinson Under 9.5 Rebounds (-122)
Finally, we're turning to under 9.5 rebounds for Mitchell Robinson.
The New York Knicks face a tough test tonight against the Cleveland Cavaliers, who are one of the best defensive and rebounding teams in the league. To be exact, the Cavaliers are allowing 49.1 rebounds per game to their opponents, which is good for the third-fewest in the league.
Robinson has been under this mark in eight of his last 10 games, which doesn't inspire confidence that he could hit the over tonight in a tough matchup. numberFire's projections have Robinson going for 8.9 rebounds, putting him under his prop tonight.
