Please note that betting lines and our daily fantasy basketball projections may change throughout the day after this article is published.

Nikola Jokic Over 43.5 Points, Rebounds, and Assists (-113)

The Denver Nuggets travel once again for tonight's game. Tonight, they'll play the Portland Trail Blazers in a game with a solid 226.5-point over/under and a tight spread.

That bodes well for Nikola Jokic to get maximum involvement and usage during his time on the floor.

numberFire is projecting Jokic for 23.9 points, 12.9 rebounds, and 8.3 assists, a total of 45.1 total points, rebounds, and assists.

At that baseline projection, we can consider Jokic to be 58.5% likely to go over on this prop, meaning odds of around -140 rather than -113.

Jerami Grant Over 2.5 Three-Pointers Made (+134)

Plus-money props are always enticing -- when we can make a solid case for them.

Jerami Grant is projected for 2.4 made threes by numberFire's model tonight, and that's definitely drawing my attention.

At that projection, we can consider Grant to be around +130 to make three triples tonight. Is that a screaming value? No, but that makes these odds very fair in the grand scheme.

The Nuggets are average in three-point attempts per game allowed, so we shouldn't anticipate the shot volume to drop at all.

In a tight game, Grant should get his shots up.

Tre Jones Over 3.5 Rebounds (-113)

The San Antonio Spurs are very short-handed for tonight's game, and that should benefit Tre Jones from a production standpoint.

Jones is averaging 3.4 rebounds on the season but is now injected into a matchup with the Houston Rockets in a game with a 232.5-point total.

There should be shot volume in this one -- and thus rebounds because the Rockets are last in the NBA in field goal percentage (44.4%).

Jones is projected by numberFire for 4.1 rebounds tonight. That implies expected over odds of -141.
