FanDuel DraftKings daily fantasy basketball

Happy Monday, RotoBallers. I hope you had a great weekend filled with awesome football games and exciting basketball games aplenty. It's time to get back to the weekly grind and find some prop value on Monkey Knife Fight.

We have a full nine games to work with tonight, so let's see if I can find five lines I especially like for value on Monday.

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!

Blake Griffin (DET) OVER 21.5 Points

All of Griffin's restrictions are starting to disappear, and as a result his usage has been awesome the past few games. He should get 32ish minutes of run in a fast-paced environment against New Orleans. If he can get a couple of threes to fall, he'll have an opportunity to crush this points total.

Derrick Rose (DET) UNDER 16.5 Points

I'm not quite sure where this line is coming from. I know the Pistons are in a pace-up spot against the Pelicans, but with Rose coming off the bench and getting 20-24 minutes a game, he has eclipsed 14 points just once in the last seven contests. Sure, there's a small chance he's super efficient and has a vintage D Rose game on Monday, but I'll take my chances on that not happening instead.

Khris Middleton (MIL) OVER 5.5 Rebounds

With his minutes slowly increasing each game, this line has not quite adjusted properly. Middleton has at least six rebounds in each of his last three games, and his playing time should creep closer to 26-29 minutes on Monday. Especially without Nikola Vucevic in the lineup, the Magic pose a great spot for Middleton to grab another six or more rebounds tonight.

Devin Booker (PHX) OVER 26.5 Points

This profiles as the kind of game where the Suns will rely on Booker's ability to create shots and get to the free throw line down the stretch in the fourth quarter. The Timberwolves are a fast-paced team who can be exposed in transition and on the perimeter; check and check. Booker has been hot lately too, scoring 35 and 44 points in his last two games. If this game is as entertaining as expected, Booker will have a huge part in the scoring department.

D'Angelo Russell (GSW) OVER 19.5 Points

Russell is still working his way back from an extended absence due to injury. He's been cold from the field in his first two contests back, but his minutes sitting near 30 is a good sign. This is the ideal matchup to get him right, and if he starts getting shots to fall he can CRUSH this point total. The Warriors are projected for 6.3 points over their season average, and the Grizzlies have a Defensive Efficiency of 26th in the league against point guards. I'm gonna buy low on D-Lo on Monday.
