Jevon Carter Over 3.5 Assists (+110)

The Milwaukee Bucks will be missing Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jrue Holiday tonight against the Detroit Pistons. That should thrust Jevon Carter into a starting role and put the ball in his hands a lot more than it usually is.

With those two off the floor this season, Carter has dished out 6.0 assists per 36 minutes, according to CourtIQ, so that checks out.

The matchup is there, too. Over the last 15 games, Detroit has allowed 9.5 assists per game to point guards, the sixth-most in that span.

The big worry is blowout risk. Even without Giannis and Holiday, Milwaukee is still a 13.0-point favorite.

Owners of a 121.5-point implied total, Milwaukee is going to put up a lot of points, so even if it winds up being a blowout, Carter can cash this over. If the game stays competitive, he should push for around 30 minutes and could soar past this prop.

I would be willing to swallow some juice to take the over at a line of 3.5 assists, so I absolutely love the chance to get it at plus-money.

Jabari Smith Over 20.5 Points + Rebounds (-106)

Jabari Smith has gone over 20.5 combined points and boards in three of his past four games. We project him to do it again today in a clash with the New York Knicks.

Smith has been good in the second half of the year, and he's seen at least 29 minutes in 11 consecutive games. He's averaging 21.8 points plus rebounds -- 14.6 points and 7.2 boards -- in 17 games since the All-Star break.

Our model projects him to score 13.6 points and pull down 8.0 rebounds (21.6 total) tonight, and the over is the side I'll be on.

Devin Booker Under 5.5 Assists (-110)

Devin Booker has totaled five or fewer assists in seven straight games. Couple that with his matchup, and I'm into the under on Booker's assists prop.

He's up against the Utah Jazz. Over the past seven contests, Utah has given up the sixth-fewest assists per night to shooting guards (3.8).

In 18 games since coming back from injury, Booker is averaging 5.3 assists, and he's at 5.7 assists per 36 minutes this year in what's expected to be tonight's floor condition, per CourtIQ.

We project Booker to record 4.9 assists on Monday.
