Catch NBA expert and Action Network contributor Munaf Manji sharing his two best prop bets for Tuesday’s NBA slate in the above video.
The first prop Manji is targeting — Kyle Kuzma over 8.5 rebounds — comes down to Kuzma’s recent play and the absence of Bradley Beal in the Washington Wizards’ game at the Milwaukee Bucks.
“Kuzma this season is averaging 8.8 rebounds,” Manji says. “But in the month of January he was averaging 11.1 rebounds for the Wizards.”
Additionally, in games this season where Beal is out of the lineup, Kuzma has averaged north of nine rebounds per game. Plus, the Bucks enter this matchup 21st in opponent rebounding over its last five games.
The second prop Manji likes Tuesday – Devin Booker over 30.5 points – is also due to the Kentucky product’s recent outputs for the Phoenix Suns.
“With all their injuries, Devin Booker has stepped up in a big way,” Manji says. “In the month of January, Booker averaged 28.2 points per game.”
Further, Booker logged at least 38 minutes in all of the last six games, has scored at least 28 points in five of the last six and has put up close to 28 shots per game over the last seven games.
Finally, Manji believes the Suns’ injury concerns will influence Booker’s point total. Both Deandre Ayton and Jae Crowder are questionable for Tuesday’s contest against the Brooklyn Nets, while Cam Payne and Landry Shamet are out for host Phoenix.
