The Los Angeles Lakers are back in action for the first time since winning the NBA In-Season Tournament, and they’ll take on a tired Dallas Mavericks team tonight.
Dallas played the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday and picked up a win, but Luka Doncic had to play 44 minutes in that game.
With Dallas playing the second night of a back-to-back, I’m focusing solely on the Lakers’ two stars for the best prop bets in this game on Tuesday.

Let’s break them down:
Lakers vs. Mavericks best NBA prop bets
- Anthony Davis OVER 41.5 points and rebounds
- LeBron James UNDER 15.5 assists and rebounds
Anthony Davis OVER 41.5 points and rebounds
Anthony Davis has cleared 41.5 points and rebounds in three of his last five games, averaging 25.8 points and 14.8 rebounds per game over that stretch.
The Lakers big man should have a field day against this Dallas team, which only has Dereck Lively II – a rookie – as a true big man in the rotation.
Dallas ranks just 28th in the NBA in rebounding percentage, and the team is 22nd in the NBA in points in the paint allowed per game.
Davis should have a field day on Tuesday night.
LeBron James UNDER 15.5 assists and rebounds
LeBron James has been great for the Lakers this season, but I’m not sold on this prop.
On the season, the 38-year-old is averaging 7.5 rebounds and 6.6 assists per game this season, slightly short of this prop.
In 22 games, LeBron has cleared 15.5 rebounds and assists just nine times. I think the Lakers could win this game going away, so I’ll take the UNDER here.
