NBA player prop pick for Monday's action across the league. Handicapper John Hyslop gives us his favorite player prop pick for this game, coming to us from Jaden McDaniels and his ability to put the ball in the hoop.

NBA Player Prop Pick for Monday: Jaden McDaniels Can Score

The more bets you can have on a Monday night, the better. Everyone knows that. Obviously, we're already in on Beef Stew at 7:00 pm ET tonight but why stop there? What if he covers in the first quarter? What the hell are we supposed to do then? Relax, I've already thought of that and I have a plan. A good one too. We'll just bet the Portland Trail Blazers vs Minnesota Timberwolves game. It starts at 8:00 pm ET and it is already shaping up to be a nonsense game. Multiple starters are out and I bet even more are out by the time the game tips. I love when that happens!

Jaden McDaniels Over 14.5 Points @ +100 (Bet $100 to win $100)

Odds available at FanDuel at time of publishing

I'm at FanDuel because they have a sweet, sweet even money deal on this kid. I love it. DraftKings isn't horrible at -110 but even money is even money. At the moment, those are our only two options since BetMGM and Barstool don't even have anything posted for this kid. Shameful.

A lot of people don't even know who this kid is but for those who do, we know what time it is. He's a scoring machine that can spot up for a three or take anyone in the world to the rack. A lot of people say he has the wettest jumper they've ever seen. I don't know if I'd go that far but it is definitely more than moist. I'd call it wet.

This kid just needs an opportunity as he's a victim of there only being one ball on the floor. That opportunity may come tonight. Anthony Edwards is highly likely to be out tonight as he's listed as doubtful. On top of that, D'Angelo Russell was listed as questionable at about 2:00pm ET. If you ask me, that means he's not playing.

Bet $1, Get $150 on the NBA It all makes sense because there really is no reason to play either Edwards or Russell tonight seeing how the Portland Trail Blazers are in town. With all due respect, that team only has a couple NBA players on the roster. Over the last three games, no team in the NBA is worse defensively in terms of efficiency. They're having a tough go at the moment.

Portland is the perfect matchup for a kid like McDaniels who has taken at least 12 shots in each of the last two games. In one of those games he only played 22 minutes because Minnestoa blew out the Thunder. In both games he still scored 16 points so we're good either way. For you James Bond types, FanDuel has 20+ for +330 which might have legs. McDaniels could have a big night tonight.
