NBA Player Prop Picks For Monday: Relying on a Backup Center

We've got what I think could end up being the greatest bet in the history of bets going tonight. Not just the NBA, but of all sports. It's just perfect. We're going to have to do our part though because this one starts at 10:00pm ET. That silver lining is that the Monday Night Football game will still be going on so we'll already be gassed up. This is just going to keep the night going. Be prepared, this bet is perfect.

Frank Kaminsky over 10.5 points (+110) - DraftKings

Suns vs Kings Odds

Only one book has the stones to post a line on the great Frank Kaminsky and it's DraftKings. FanDuel has a ton of guys and so do BetMGM but neither want any smoke with Kaminsky. After what I'm about to tell you, you'll see why that was a smart move.

Let me tell you a little bit about Frank Kaminsky. He doesn't look like much but this guy can fill it up. The only issue is the guy doesn't get regular minutes. It's hard to imagine any team with a spark plug like this sitting on their bench would just leave him there but it happens. Luckily for us, it won't happen tonight.

Deandre Ayton is the reason that Kaminsky doesn't get minutes but he's out tonight. JaVale McGee should start in his place again which means Kaminsky gets minutes. This has happened twice already this season and in both games, Kaminsky played at least 28 minutes and scored at least 16 points. What a guy.

The bonus part of this pick is the fact that Sacramento is not great defensively. On the season they are 20th in the entire NBA in defensive efficiency which is perfect for Frank. In the both games Kaminsky saw action in this season the Suns played teams ranked in the 20s in that metric. Frank knows what to do in this situation. I love this bet tonight.
