Under 30.5 Points (-115, PointsBet)
After missing three games due to health and safety protocols, Durant essentially picked up right where he left off as far as scoring. While the return of James Harden and other teammates to the lineup has eaten into his astronomical usage a bit, Durant has still totaled 33 and 28 points in Brooklyn’s last two games. He leads the league in scoring, averaging an astounding 29.8 points per game. However, that mark remains lower than tonight’s total of 30.5. Awesemo projects Durant for only 29.33 points in Monday’s game. OddsShopper currently shows optimal odds of -115 that are as much as 10 cents better than others in the market.
Under 7.5 Rebounds (+100, DraftKings)
Some may be surprised to learn that Durant is averaging fewer than eight rebounds per game on the season. While his 7.9 boards per game are slightly more than tonight’s line of 7.5, OddsShopper believes that the under is worth a look. Once again, this opportunity has a lot to do with the price attached to this prop bet. Not only does OddsShopper show an even-money price of +100, but it also reveals a 10-cent advantage over the odds at other sportsbooks. Since rejoining the lineup, Durant has only exceeded 7.5 boards once in his two games. While there is not a statistical edge on this wager, the favorable odds and potential return combine for a 3% positive ROI.
