NBA Player Prop Picks For Monday: Big-Man Assists at Plus Odds Too Good to Pass Up

It's Monday so that means NBA time again people. With all the football we've watched in the last two days, I think it's time to mix in some hoops. It's not like we're not watching football tonight, I'm just saying we should have some hoops too. There's only one football game. The smartest thing you can do as a bettor is find something that has a 0% chance of losing and hammer it. We've got 10 games people so it's not that hard. Honestly, the bet I found here shouldn't even be legal it's so good.

Dewayne Dedmon Over 1.5 Assists (+175)

Lines available at DraftKings at time of publishing.

Look alive people this is what we've all been dreaming about. A sweet, sweet Dewayne Dedmon assist prop. Most books wouldn't even post something like this but DraftKings did. We should respect them for that. It takes the stones of a champion to put something like this up on your sportsbook.

I know what you're thinking, "how is Dewayne Dedmon only at 1.5 assists? That's crazy!" You're right, I couldn't believe it either. The guy has played at least 22 minutes in each game since Bam Adebayo went down so he's seeing action. In each of those games, he's recorded at least two assists and he's seeing 4.3 potential assists per game.

It makes sense because Bam was dropping assists left and right before he went down. We're talking at least two in 11 of his last 12 games. It's those stupid, borderline handoff plays that help. At the end of the day, I'll take a kick out to an open guy for a three. We only need it to happen twice.

Normally we could talk about the other team but I couldn't imagine thinking that Memphis giving up 3.32 assists per game to opposing centers actually matters. In their last game, Dwight Powell had five dimes and he only had one in his previous five games combined so there is that. Still, no matter how you slice it, 1.5 assists tonight for +175 feels like the perfect complement to the Monday night card.
