Here are our favorite NBA prop bets for Monday, April 17:

Brooklyn Nets at Philadelphia 76ers (-10, 213) - Game 2

It’s wild that P.J. Tucker’s total for made 3s tonight sits at 0.5 and isn’t heavily juiced. In Game 1, Tucker went 2 for 5 on his 3-point attempts, and it seems a little crazy to think he won’t get a few 3s up in Game 2. And if he’s shooting them, you’ll be happy you’re holding a ticket on him to make one.

Tucker obviously isn’t a player that hunts his own offense, but he has been a capable spot-up shooter for a very long time now. And with Brooklyn having no choice but to throw extra bodies in Joel Embiid’s direction, quite a few possessions should end with the ball finding Tucker for a decent look.

Tucker is also a better shooter at home than he is on the road, so this is the time to go back to this bet. This is also the time of year in which the 37-year-old is counted on to step up and play his best basketball, and we see him doing his part on Monday.

Bet: Tucker Over 0.5 Made 3s (-145) 

Golden State Warriors (-1.5, 239.5) at Sacramento Kings - Game 2

Keegan Murray is coming off a fantastic rookie season for the Kings, as he averaged 12.2 points per game and was a legitimate sniper for this Sacramento squad. However, Murray played only 16 minutes in a 126-123 win over the Warriors in Game 1. Considering the Kings won that game, it’s hard to see them making any massive rotation changes in Game 2.

It’s just very hard to see Murray playing big minutes throughout this series, as Golden State is relentless when it comes to hunting matchups. The Warriors won’t hesitate to try and make an example out of Murray, who just hasn’t had a taste for competition quite like this. And if Murray’s not getting at least 20 minutes per night, it’s hard to expect double digits out of him.

Murray would need to get scorching hot right off the bat in order to go over this number, and we’re just not anticipating that. In fact, it wouldn’t be surprising if he is pressing a bit after having been pulled last game.

Bet: Murray Under 9.5 Points (-115)
