Best NBA Player Props for Feb. 28
Luka Doncic Over 16.5 Rebounds + Assists (-111, FanDuel)
Since the trade for Kyrie Irving, Doncic’s numbers have seen a slight regression, but the Dallas Mavericks guard is still pulling in 8.2 rebounds and 7.0 assists per game. Adding Irving to this offense will take touches and opportunities away from Doncic, but Irving also makes it easier for Doncic to facilitate the offense now. And as we can see, he is still putting up good rebound and assist numbers.
Tonight, the Mavericks will go up against a Pacers team that has been pretty mediocre all season, especially on defense. Since the start of 2023, the Pacers are 7-18, and for the entire season, their defense ranks 23rd in scoring (117.4 points per game), 27th in assists per game (26.2), 22nd in fastbreak points (14.6), and 28th in rebounds per game (54.0).
This is a matchup nightmare for Indiana, and with Dallas coming off a disappointing loss to the Lakers, look for it to come out tonight looking to shine. Usually, whenever that happens, Doncic is leading the charge, putting up monster numbers, and he should do the same tonight.

Walker Kessler Over 25.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists (-105, DraftKings)
If you are unfamiliar with Kessler, it might be time to start learning the name because this man has been crashing the glass lately. Over his last three games, the Utah Jazz center is pulling in 14.7 rebounds per game, including 4.0 offensive boards per game. On the season, he is averaging 7.9 rebounds per game, but his minutes are going up, which increases his opportunities.
While he is putting up 8.7 points and 1.3 assists per game during the same period, Kessler has undoubtedly started to find a groove, and going up against a horrible San Antonio Spurs defense might be a huge help. The Spurs’ defense is last in scoring (122.9 points allowed per game), and points in the paint allowed (56.3), and they are ranked 20th in rebounds allowed per game (52.6).
With Collin Sexton and Jordan Clarkson both listed as OUT for tonight, the Jazz are going to need to replace their production in the scoring department, and although Kessler is not necessarily the first option when it comes to that, all we are asking for is that uptick in opportunity.

Dillon Brooks Over 1.5 Made Three Pointers (+102, Caesars Sportsbook)
Brooks is having a down year on offense, but do not be mistaken, that has not stopped him from hucking up some threes. The Memphis Grizzlies guard is currently averaging a career-high in attempted 3-pointers per game (5.7), but he only makes them at a 31.3% clip.
However, if you cannot tell by now when we are making our favorite NBA prop bets, opportunity plays a huge factor. While Brooks has exceeded this number twice in his last nine outings, the Lakers play horrible defense, especially at the three-point line, as they rank 21st in opponents’ made 3-pointers and 27th in opponents’ attempted three-pointers.
With LeBron James out for a few weeks, the Lakers, who were riding high after a massive 27-point comeback against the Mavericks, are suddenly back in desperation mode, and without James, this team is significantly weaker on both ends of the court.
Getting this prop at plus money makes it worth a shot, and that is precisely what we will do.
