Karl-Anthony Towns over 38.5 points + rebounds + assists (-115) at Hornets FanDuel, 1:00 PM CT

This mark is about two combined P+R+A higher than Towns averages when he sees 30+ minutes. Still, I'm not worried about taking the over. Charlotte has a terrible center rotation and allow the most rebounds per game to opponents.

Jalen Suggs under 18.5 points + assists (-108) vs. Bulls – FanDuel, 1:03 PM CT

Suggs has taken on more responsibility without Cole Anthony around, averaging 14.0 points and 3.8 assists in his past five games. However, he's still struggling with his shot and doesn't look quite comfortable yet. The Bulls' swarming defensive backcourt of Alex Caruso and Lonzo Ball should put a ton of pressure on Suggs, and I wouldn't be surprised if he has one of the worst games of his career.
