The Los Angeles Lakers are at home on Monday as they look to snap a two-game skid against the Oklahoma City Thunder. 

The Thunder have listed star Shai Gilgeous-Alexander as questionable for this game, which has led to a limited prop market being released so far in this matchup. 

So, why not focus on the Lakers players for props? I have two players to target on Martin Luther King Jr. Day:

Thunder vs. Lakers best NBA prop bets

  • Anthony Davis OVER 41.5 Points and Rebounds
  • Austin Reaves OVER 1.5 3-Pointers Made

Anthony Davis OVER 41.5 Points and Rebounds

This is a great matchup for Lakers big man Anthony Davis, as the Thunder rank 28th in the NBA in rebounding percentage. 

Davis had 31 points and 14 boards in the first meeting between these teams before posting 26 points and 11 boards in the second meeting. His prop (41.5) is in the middle of those two numbers tonight. 

On the season, Davis is averaging 25.1 points and 12.1 rebounds per game, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see him get some extra run in this game with the Lakers needing a win. 

Austin Reaves OVER 1.5 3-Pointers Made

Austin Reaves has made multiple shots from beyond the arc in 12 of his 20 games since the start of December, and I like him to do that again tonight. 

OKC is 22nd in the NBA in 3-pointers allowed per game, and Reaves did clear this prop in his last meeting against OKC. 

Until his last game, Reaves had taken at least three shots from beyond the arc in every matchup since Dec. 2. I expect him to bounce back in the 3-point department tonight.
