NBA DFS Prop Picks for 12/23/19 - Monkey Knife Fight

Happy Monday all! I hope your weekends went well, and I hope some of you are reading this with a new Fantasy Football Championship trophy on your mantle. I know I am.

We have a massive 11-game slate on this fine Festivus leading up to a day off on Christmas Eve and of course the infamous Christmas Day slate. Let's see if we can find some value on Monkey Knife Fight to start this holiday week off right!

You can follow me on Twitter @BellRoto. This is a great time for NBA content as Christmas time rolls around. If you have more questions about these prop bets or other NBA DFS situations, hit me up throughout the day on Twitter. Let’s do it!

Bradley Beal (WAS) OVER 32.5 Points

The Wizards are thin, and this is a great matchup for a very high usage guard like Beal. We saw Trae Young go off at the Garden last week, and I predict the same here. With no Isaiah Thomas, Davis Bertans, or Rui Hachimura, BB3 will take all the shots he wants on Monday night. He's hit the Over on this points line in three of his last four contests.

Nikola Vucevic (ORL) OVER 19.5 Points

Coming back from injury has naturally lowered Vuc's points lines over the last week or so. He's consistently shown improvement though, and this is a nice matchup against a relatively soft Chicago interior. Reaching 20 points is a norm for a healthy Vucevic, and we'll see this points line up near 25 consistently before long.

Bojan Bogdanovic (UTA) OVER 20.5 Points

The matchup against Miami is less than ideal, but the volume of shots is just so high for Bogdanovic right now. Conley sitting out helps his floor even more, and it's more than likely he'll find his way to 25ish points considering his three point attempts and typical efficiency from deep. Bogdanovic has 26 or more points in three of his last four games. Apparently I like the Overs on point totals today!

Hassan Whiteside (POR) OVER 15.5 Rebounds

Whiteside has really settled into a groove over the past week, staying out of foul trouble and logging mid-30s in minutes consistently. That leads to a lot of rebounds for the big man, especially in a fast-paced game like this one against the Pelicans. As long as he doesn't limit himself with cheap fouls on someone like Brandon Ingram, expect Whiteside to be up near 20 rebounds by the end of this one.

De'Aaron Fox (SAC) OVER 16.5 Points

Let's keep the trend going. One more over!! Fox will be making his fourth start on Monday since returning from a pretty lengthy injury absence. If the trend continues and this game stays close (which Vegas projects), I imagine he sees over 30 minutes in this one. This line would be too low for 30+ minutes of Fox in this type of pace. He thrives in transition and can get to the line with the best of them. Buy low while you still can.
