Welcome back to another night of NBA prop bets today on Tuesday, December 7, 2021. In this article, I will identify my best NBA player props tonight to make a maximum profit and get us some more money to get going this week.

Best NBA Player Props Today (12/7/21)
Brooklyn Nets at Dallas Mavericks
Kevin Durant will be under the bright lights on the big stage as the Nets roll into town to face Luka Doncic and the Mavericks. Over the last four games, and in five of six, Durant has scored at least 27 points – just below the mark we’re looking to exceed tonight.
The Mavericks are reeling at the moment, losing seven of their last nine games. If we’re looking for a perennial scoring threat to go in and do some damage, this is the spot we want to pick.
Pick: Kevin Durant – Over 27.5 Points (-112)
New York Knicks at San Antonio Spurs
Julius Randle has gotten back into the groove of scoring the basketball, with at least 24 points in each of his last three games. Tonight’s matchup against the Spurs is a little easier than usual, considering they are playing on the back end of a back-to-back set and a stretch of three games in four days and four in six.
Randle is actually averaging a double-double this season, with 20 points and 10 rebounds. Look for him to be a force in the Knicks’ charge toward a victory tonight.
Pick: Julius Randle – Record a Double-Double (+105)
Boston Celtics at Los Angeles Lakers
Jayson Tatum has opened the month of December with a bang on the glass, grabbing down 10+ rebounds in those three games – that includes 16 last week against the 76ers. On the season, Tatum is averaging 8.8 rebounds per game, so we’re getting a nice value on the prop number.
Tonight’s matchup against the Lakers is about as average as it gets, considering that’s exactly where they are in the NBA for rebounding rate. However, LA is actually coming into tonight’s game on three full days’ rest. If the Lakers use that rest to run a faster tempo than usual, there will be more rebounding opportunities for Tatum.
Pick: Jayson Tatum – Over 7.5 Rebounds (-114)
