Derrick White Under 14.5 Points (-128)

The Philadelphia 76ers have been brutally tough on point guards all year, and that puts me on the under on Derrick White's points prop.

Philly has limited the point-guard position to just 22.7 points per night, the second-fewest in the NBA. They're allowing the fewest three-point shots per game to floor generals (7.0).

White usually isn't much of a scorer anyway, averaging 10.8 points per game for the campaign. He has a meager 14.2% usage rate when Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are on the floor, per CourtIQ, and is scoring just 12.5 points per 36 minutes in that split. Both Brown and Tatum are expected to play today.

We project White to net 12.1 points, well under this line.

Walker Kessler Under 9.5 Rebounds (+112)

Walker Kessler is taking on the Minnesota Timberwolves, and it should be a difficult spot for him to amass a ton of boards.

Minnesota is giving up only 13.3 rebounds per game to the center position, the seventh-fewest.

On top of that, Kessler's minutes have been all over the place lately as he's played 27, 18, 30, 25 and 18 minutes over his past five. That span coincides with the return of Kelly Olynyk. Olynyk's minutes have risen of late, with the veteran big logging 30 and 28 minutes over the past two contests, getting more run than Kessler in each.

Kessler has reached double-digit rebounds only two times over his past seven games. We project him to pull down 8.6 boards on Wednesday.

Malik Monk Over 1.5 Made Threes (-118)

Malik Monk is up against the Houston Rockets, a team that surrenders a ton of shots from deep.

Houston allows a three-point attempt rate of 44.3%, the highest in the NBA. Shooting guards are taking a league-high 10.9 three-point shots per night against the Rockets.

Monk usually doesn't need much encouragement to shoot from three. He played Houston last time out and went 4 of 7 from beyond the arc. He's battled Houston three times this year and has sunk at least two triples in every meeting.

Our model has Monk hitting 2.0 threes on 5.4 tries tonight.
