The NBA's Monday schedule is split perfectly in half.
There are six afternoon tips and another six contests starting after 6 p.m. ET.
That is the perfect scheduling to produce two 3-Point Plays for the loaded slate. It also makes up for the scant two-game slate we get on Tuesday.
Below are three prop picks for the afternoon slate. The trio of selections for the night slate will appear in a separate post later this afternoon.
NBA 3-Point Play
Overall Record: 15-17
Mitchell Robinson Over 9.5 Points (-116)
Mitchell Robinson hit double figures in the scoring column in each of the last four games.
Robinson and the New York Knicks have a favorable matchup on Monday against Mason Plumlee and the Charlotte Hornets.
The Hornets are one of the worst teams in the NBA against opposing centers. That only helps the case for Robinson to score 10 points.
Robinson has been accurate with the field-goal attempts he received during his scoring streak. He missed three of his 27 field goals in that stretch.
Seth Curry Over 4.5 Assists (-105)
Seth Curry is averaging 6.5 assists per game in January.
Curry had at least five assists in five of his six trips to the hardwood.
The recent trend makes me feel comfortable in betting this prop for Monday afternoon's clash with the Washington Wizards.
Tyrese Maxey's return to the starting lineup only helps this prop because there is an additional shooter inside the starting five.
Curry has been shooting the ball better in January, and I considered his points and threes prop, but I feel most comfortable with the assist number.
Caris LeVert Over 19.5 Points (-120)
Caris LeVert produced 20 points in his second game back from a two-game layoff on Friday.
The entire Indiana Pacers squad should be well rested for the mid-afternoon clash with the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday.
LeVert attempted 19 field goals on Friday and he typically shot at a high volume before he went down for two weeks. He averaged 21.6 points per game on 17.7 field goal attempts per contest in December.
I expect LeVert's shot volume to rise again with more on-court fitness. He should be Indiana's leading scorer versus the Clippers.
