Caris LeVert Over 1.5 Made Three-Pointers (-125)
Caris LeVert has a great matchup tonight to go over his made threes prop.
With Darius Garland sidelined, LeVert should be locked into big minutes (34.3, per our model), and he figures to get plenty of both shots (13.1) and three-point tries (5.0). We project him to make 1.7 triples tonight -- barely over this 1.5 line.
Jrue Holiday Under 2.5 Made Three-Pointers (-148)
On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Brooklyn Nets have done a great job preventing three-point tries so far this year, giving up a three-point attempt rate of only 31.4%, the second-lowest.
That has me on the under on Jrue Holiday's made threes prop. Holiday is 3 for 10 from deep through two games, going 3 for 4 last time out and 0 for 6 in his season debut.
On top of that, Holiday -- one of the league's elite perimeter defenders -- will have his work cut out for him defensively tonight versus Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. That could cause foul trouble for him and also tire him out for the offensive end.
We project Holiday to make 2.0 treys on 5.0 attempts.
Nikola Jokic Over 7.5 Assists (-146)
Over his past three games, Nikola Jokic has recorded nine, 13 and 10 assists. He gets a cozy matchup tonight versus the Los Angeles Lakers -- a game in which the Denver Nuggets hold a 117.75-point implied total.
Our model has Jokic totaling 8.3 assists.
You can also take Jokic over 46.5 combined points, rebounds and assists (-120) as we peg him to amass 25.8 points, 13.2 boards and 8.3 dimes -- a total of 47.3. If you're feeling frisky, Jokic is +240 to notch a triple-double.
