Please note that betting lines and our daily fantasy basketball projections may change throughout the day after this article is published.
Ivica Zubac Over 9.5 Rebounds (-148)
There's a fairly large discrepancy between this line and our projections. Our model sees Ivica Zubac having a huge night on the glass tonight versus the Dallas Mavericks, projecting him for 12.0 boards.
The matchup certainly helps as Dallas sits dead last in rebound rate this season.
Zubac's minutes have been all over the place of late -- 37, 21, 15 and 34 over his past four. We project him to get 34 minutes tonight, and as long as he gets solid run, this over should hit. Zubac is averaging 13.0 rebounds per 36 minutes for the year, and he's snagged at least 10 rebounds in four of the past five games in which he's logged at least 30 minutes.
While the -148 juice isn't fun, this bet checks a lot of boxes.
Josh Hart Over 0.5 Made Threes (-142)
Hart doesn't take many threes, which is why his line is at 0.5, but he's made at least one trifecta in three of his past five outings, including two straight. This matchup should help him get a few looks from deep.
Our model has Hart going 1.3 of 3.6 from three on Tuesday.
Jordan Clarkson Under 20.5 Points (-111)
Jordan Clarkson is in a tough spot tonight.
No team in the league has been tougher on two-guards than the Cleveland Cavaliers have. Cleveland is holding the shooting guard position to 19.2 points per game, the fewest in the NBA. They're also giving up just 7.2 three-point attempts per game to the position, the second-fewest.
The Cavs' defense is dang good overall as they're tied for first in defensive rating. They're playing at the slowest pace, too, which is another thing that pushes me toward the under.
Clarkson has gone for fewer than 20 points in three consecutive games, although he netted at least 21 points in eight straight before those three.
Taking on a slow-paced Cavs team that is excellent on D, Clarkson is projected to score 19.6 points, per our algorithm. The under is the side to be on.
