With Monday's NBA action, prop expert John Hyslop shares his favorite play from the Monday slate.

NBA Player Prop Picks For Monday: Look to Brandon Ingram

I wanted to throw out 15 plays on such a gigantic slate but here's the thing. I can't because there is only one that I saw this morning that tops them all. If this was a tout show, this would easily be a triple-dime, quadruple tee-bagger play of the century. It is literally why we bet the sport of basketball. More plays are going to open up as the day goes because that's just how the NBA works, but this one has to be bet right now. At some point DraftKings is going to realize they made a colossal mistake and take this magical line away from us. I hate to say it but we both know I'm right.

Brandon Ingram Over 4.5 rebounds (+135)

Line available at DraftKings at time of publishing.

This one is absurd. I mean crazy absurd. What DraftKings was thinking here, I don't know. They're the best line going as they have 4.5 at +135 but FanDuel has the same number at +122 so they are a close second here. BetMGM has nothing posted yet but I am sure they will be in this ballpark too so keep tabs on them.

This guy was out for seven games so the books may have forgotten about him but we haven't. He looked to be on a slight minutes restriction on Saturday but he played 29 minutes. That means he's fine. I bet he jumps right back into the upper 30s tonight with no problem.

I'm going to do a little stat magic here so bear with me. So far this season, anytime Ingram has played at least 30 minutes, he's pulled in at least six rebounds. (Let's pretend the 29 minutes he played last game is so much lower than 30) That's just a scientific fact people.

Tonight the Pelicans get the Washington Wizards and I think they can keep it close. (If they do that, Ingram will play his full complement of minutes.) Bradley Beal is out for the Wizards which means we see lineups we don't normally see for long stretches. Player props strive in chaos and there should be plenty of it tonight. 

* For you YOLO people, FanDuel is offering 6+ rebounds at +220. That is worth a wager as well.
