Jalen Duren over 22.5 points + rebounds (-110) vs. Spurs
DraftKings, 2:44 PM CT
Alex Barutha: I'm looking for a big game out of Duren, who should have a fire lit under him after the Pistons traded for James Wiseman, with reports indicating Detroit intends to start the 2020 No. 2 overall pick sooner than later. It remains to be seen how the two will be utilized going forward -- imagining them on the court together makes me nauseous -- but at least for this game, I think Duren will come out with all-time high energy levels in an attempt to protect his spot. Plus, it's a soft frontcourt matchup against a Spurs team that just traded away their strongest interior presence in Jakob Poeltl.

Toronto Raptors -7.5 vs Utah Jazz
DraftKings Sportsbook, 2pm CT
Nick Whalen: I haven't been a major Raptors supporter this season, but this is a great spot for Toronto at home after the trade deadline. Not only should Jakob Poeltl make his debut, but the Jazz are depleted after sending out Mike Conley, Malik Beasley and Jared Vanderbilt on Thursday. They didn't really receive any tangible pieces in the deal, so there may be a bit of an adjustment period playing without three key rotation players.

Miami Heat BLK+STL Player Props: Bam Adebayo O2.5 (+130), Gabe Vincent O1.5 (+100), Jimmy Butler O2.5 (+100) or Caleb Martin O1.5 (-125)
Nick, will you ever stop targeting BLK+STL props against the Rockets? *Nick Saban I'm not going to, so quit asking GIF*
Nick Whalen: Tonight, we're going with more of a sampler platter – a dealer's choice, if you will. I think the DK Sportsbook is starting to catch on, because not a single Heat player is listed at 0.5. At 1.5 or 2.5, it's a little riskier, but we're also getting plus money on Adebayo, Vincent and Butler. Once more: Over the last 10 games, Houston has by far the NBA's highest turnover rate and is surrendering 9.0 steals per game and 6.0 blocks per game (both league-highs). For context, most teams give up 11 or 12 blocks/steals per game.

Deandre Ayton over 20.5 points at Pacers (-125)
PointsBet, 5pm ET
Ken Crites: The return of Devin Booker initially had me wanting to wager the Under on Ayton. But when Booker returned on Tuesday and hoisted 15 shots, Ayton still posted 35 points from 18 field goal attempts. The big man is on a heater, averaging 24.0 points and 15.7 shots over his past seven games. The Suns are still short-handed with Bridges and Johnson shipped off to Brooklyn and Durant and Bazely not yet ready to make their Suns debut. That means scoring-challenged Torrey Craig (2 points last game) and Jock Landale are both starting, which leaves plenty of shots for Ayton. Expect 32-plus minutes from the big center and hopefully a lot of buckets. Frankly, Booker's on-court presence and perimeter shooting should free up the key for Ayton.
