The Denver Nuggets need to get back on track after losing three straight games, and they’ll have a chance to do so against the Atlanta Hawks, who have also lost three straight. 

Tonight, we’re looking at the prop market for this Denver game, with two plays for Jamal Murray and Aaron Gordon. Murray (probable) could be undervalued in his fourth game back from a hamstring injury.  

Atlanta is dealing with injuries to Jalen Johnson (out) and De’Andre Hunter (questionable), which could open up some more looks for one of the team’s star guards. 

Let’s dive into the prop plays for this matchup:

Nuggets vs. Hawks best NBA prop bets

  • Jamal Murray OVER 20.5 points
  • Aaron Gordon OVER 9.5 assists and rebounds
  • Dejounte Murray OVER 29.5 points, rebounds and assists

Jamal Murray OVER 20.5 points

In three games since returning from a hamstring injury, Murray has scored 16, 23 and 21 points. 

He’s starting to see his minutes increase as of late, playing 29:31 against the Los Angeles Clippers and 31:41 against the Houston Rockets in his last game. 

The usage is key for Murray, as he’s taken 14, 18 and 17 shots in the three games he’s played since returning. I expect that to stay the same, especially against an Atlanta team that plays at the No. 3 pace in the NBA. 

Aaron Gordon OVER 9.5 assists and rebounds

On the season, Gordon is averaging 7.1 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game, but he’s seen those numbers decrease since returning from injury, posting 10, eight and nine rebounds and assists in his last three games. 

I think he turns things around on Monday night, with there being extra possessions against a fast-paced Atlanta squad. 

He’s cleared this line in 11 of 19 games this season, and I think he should come closer to his season averages in both categories tonight. 

Dejounte Murray OVER 29.5 points, rebounds and assists

Atlanta guard Dejounte Murray is averaging 20.0 points, 4.4 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game this season, hovering right around this prop for Monday. 

However, over his last nine games, he’s cleared this line five times.

With Hunter possibly missing this game, Murray could be in for a few more looks on offense, which could push him past this number. 

Known for stuffing the stat sheet with the San Antonio Spurs, Murray may be a little undervalued since he’s taken a smaller role with Atlanta alongside Trae Young.
