This week’s NBA action continues with seven games on Tuesday, and there’s a boatload of potential betting value in the player props market that bettors can take advantage of. We dug up a few player props so you didn’t have to. Among those bets is a play on Lakers forward LeBron James staying red-hot in the Battle of LA.

Here are betting lines for the TNT nightcap from top sports betting apps.

Player Props for NBA Tuesday

LeBron James Over 32.5 Points (+110, DraftKings and Caesars)

James is coming off another stellar performance on Sunday against the Portland Trail Blazers in which he scored 37 points to help the Lakers overcome a 25-point halftime deficit.

He hasn’t exactly been outstanding against the Clips this season, totaling 30 and 20 points in his two meetings, but those games featured Anthony Davis. Now that Davis is out, James should man an even larger role against Los Angeles, which is average at best when it comes to defending the paint.

The King is averaging 33.7 points over his last 19 games, hitting 33-plus points in 11 of them (57.9%). We all know about his pursuit of the scoring record; he’s 224 points away from surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. A big scoring output tonight would put him one step closer to breaking the record.

Julius Randle Under 25.5 Points (-120, BetMGM)

Randle has been inconsistent all season. He has topped 25.5 points in just 18 of his 48 games on the season (37.5%), including hitting his scoring line tonight just twice over his last eight games.

The Cleveland Cavaliers play at the league’s slowest pace, which often results in low-scoring totals because there are simply not a lot of scoring opportunities. Cleveland also has the league’s best scoring defense, ranking first in both defensive efficiency and points allowed per contest.

Not many star players log nice scoring outputs on the Cavs for those reasons. From Evan Mobley to Jarrett Allen, they can throw a lot of bodies at Randle and prevent the Knicks power forward from establishing any real estate inside the paint.

Bismack Biyombo Over 7.5 Rebounds (-122, BetRivers)

Biyombo isn’t known as a glass cleaner, but he gets a great matchup and an opportunity to haul in a bunch of rebounds tonight. The Charlotte Hornets give up the most rebounds to centers and the second most boards overall in the NBA (54.6 per game).

He played nearly 30 minutes and grabbed 16 rebounds against the Indiana Pacers last Saturday. DeAndre Ayton will sit out his third straight game tonight, so Biyombo should draw another start. Should he play starter minutes again, he can easily exceed his rebound prop total.
