Chris Boucher Under 5.5 Rebounds (-124, FanDuel)

After seeing extended playing time in recent weeks as a result of the Toronto Raptors being shorthanded in the frontcourt, Chris Boucher is expected to revert back to roughly 20 minutes per game moving forward. The return of both Precious Achiuwa and Khem Birch will undoubtedly cut into the inconsistent Boucher’s time on the floor. Even in the Raptors’ most recent game on Sunday, Boucher only played 21 minutes and grabbed only four rebounds. He enters Tuesday’s home game against the San Antonio Spurs averaging 5.2 rebounds per game on the season overall.

With a projection of 5.02 rebounds, OddsShopper has assigned a 63% probability for Boucher to fall short of the NBA player props line tonight. It is no secret that Toronto coach Nick Nurse prefers to limit Boucher when he has other options available. The return of other Raptors’ big men affords him that flexibility. Toronto has also gotten small forwards O.G. Anunoby and Scottie Barnes back recently. Both players figure to cut into rebounding opportunities that were there for Boucher in previous weeks. OddsShopper shows that the NBA betting market is juiced to the under on this prop bet tonight. However, favorable -124 odds still offer bettors over ten cents in value relative to other prices.

Nickeil Alexander-Walker Over 2.5 Rebounds (-148, FanDuel)

Tonight’s game will be the third back from COVID protocols for New Orleans Pelicans wing, Nickeil Alexander-Walker. It is also the second game of a back-to-back for the Pelicans, which could potentially lend a boost to Alexander-Walker’s playing time. Since returning, he has finished with five and four rebounds in the two games. On the season overall, the 23-year-old is averaging 3.8 boards per game. While crashing the glass is clearly not the forte of Alexander-Walker’s game, bettors have plenty of incentive to play over on the NBA player props total tonight.

OddsShopper shows that the NBA betting market is juiced to the over on a questionable line of 2.5 rebounds for Alexander-Walker. OddsShopper is in firm agreement with the betting odds. In fact, a projection for  3.68 boards equates to a win probability of 71% for the over on this prop bet tonight. Despite having to lay -148 as the optimal price, this wager is still given a healthy ROI of 19%.

Damian Jones Over 7.5 Rebounds (+110, FanDuel)

Damian Jones started Sunday’s game for the Sacramento Kings as primary center Richaun Holmes landed in COVID protocols. He certainly did nothing that should prevent Alvin Gentry from getting him solid minutes again tonight. Jones connected on seven of ten shot attempts to finish with 18 points. He also corralled 10 rebounds in a double-double performance across 26 minutes of action. Jones has now exceeded the NBA player props line of 7.5 rebounds three times in the last four games. He has also finished with no fewer than six boards in any of the Kings’ last five contests.

With Holmes remaining in COVID protocols, Awesemo projects Jones to finish with 8.25 rebounds in tonight’s matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers. While he has only averaged 4.4 per game on the season, Jones has yet to see anywhere near the playing time he has been getting lately. Despite all of these positive factors, OddsShopper shows that the NBA betting market is juiced heavily to the under on this prop bet. As a result, bettors can nab a plus-money price and a 24% expected ROI on this over prediction.
