Dejounte Murray to Record a Triple-Double (+330)

That matchup tonight is about as good as it gets for Dejounte Murray as the San Antonio Spurs do battle with the Houston Rockets.

Over their last 15 games, the Rockets are among the 10 best matchups for point guards in terms of rebounds (6.6) and assists (9.5) per night. This game has a 234.0-point total and 7.5-point spread. Not only should it be a high-scoring tilt, Murray should also get his full workload.

Murray notched 15 points, 11 boasts and 13 dimes last time out, and he's averaging 20.8 points, 8.3 rebounds and 9.3 assists for the campaign. He's posted averages of 23.3 points, 7.3 rebounds and 10.7 assists in three previous matchups with Houston this season.

Rebounds might wind up being the biggest hurdle for Murray, but Houston has the fifth-worst rebounding rate (47.0%) across the last five games.

We project Murray for 23.0, 8.0 rebounds and 9.6 six assists. At a price of +330, I like rolling the dice on the San Antonio star to outdo those numbers and get a triple-double.

Cole Anthony Under 15.5 Points (-118)

Cole Anthony has struggled lately to put the ball through the hoop, and a matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers is unlikely to be the spot where he turns it around.

Across their last 15 games, the Cavs have held the point guard position to 19.0 points per game, the second-fewest. Cleveland has been tough on shooting guards, as well, limiting them to 20.4 points per game in that time, the ninth-fewest. No matter how Anthony is used, he's facing an uphill battle.

On top of that, Anthony has netted 16-plus points just once in his past five games despite playing at least 28 minutes in each outing.

Our model puts Anthony right at this line, projecting him for 15.5 points, but I lean toward the under.

Kevin Huerter Over 2.5 Assists (+100)

The Atlanta Hawks have a cozy matchup with the Indiana Pacers, and one way to take advantage of it is Kevin Huerter's assists prop.

The Pacers have been really bad defensively down the stretch. In the last five games, Indiana sits fifth-worst in defensive rating (121.1). They've been getting blitzed by just about every position, with shooting guard being no exception. Over the last seven games, two-guards are averaging 6.8 assists per night against the Pacers, the fourth-most.

While Huerter isn't a big assists guy, he has at least three helpers in half of his past six games and has gotten to at least two assists in five of those contests.

In a game with a 234.5-point total and 8.0-point spread, Huerter projects for 3.4 assists, according to our model. That's with Danilo Gallinari and Bogdan Bogdanovic projected to play, and and both are far from guaranteed to suit up.
