NBA Player Props for Monday: Karl Anthony-Towns Poised For Big Showing
You are 100% out of your mind if you think we aren't betting NBA tonight. I know there's NFL football and the Manning Cast but that doesn't mean we shouldn't have NBA action. In fact, that's more of a reason to have NBA action. The right answer to any "how can we make this night better?" conversation is more action. That's why I woke up extra early today and went through every game on the NBA docket. We need this, people.
Karl Anthony-Towns Double-Double YES (+110)

DraftKings is the spot on this one as they are offering plus money for this one which is a no-brainer. To put things into perspective, FanDuel has this same bet at -105. BetMGM has not opened player props on this one yet but I would be shocked to see them at plus money. That means we're playing at DraftKings.
Here's the thing with KAT, he's always a threat to record a double-double on nights when he is up against another "real" big man. A good example would be the Phoenix Suns' Deandre Ayton. He went 35-13 against them last Monday. As long as he doesn't get into foul trouble, he should be good.
He's got another "real" big man tonight in Jonas Valanciunas. The last time these teams met KAT went 32-14 so we've seen him smash against these guys. Still, he also had a 25-4 game the night before against the same squad because of foul trouble so there is that. I think as long as we get plus money on this it's a good move.
