Karl-Anthony Towns is coming off a 40 point, nine-rebound, and seven-assist performance in the Minnesota Timberwolves last win over the Houston Rockets.

Towns went 4-of-6 from three and shot 11-of-17 from within 10 feet of the rim, maximizing his scoring potential as one of the best shooting big men of all time (the best if you ask him).

In going up against the New Orleans Pelicans, KAT shouldn’t have any problems finding his own shots, as the Pelicans are one of the worst defensive teams in the league on the defensive rating metric.

Towns is also a usual threat to grab rebounds and also rack up assists by finding Anthony Edwards, D’Angelo Russell, and Jarred Vanderbilt in their spots.

The track record of playing well in New Orleans is also there for KAT, as he has averaged 28.5 points, 10.5 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game in his last four games there.

Fred VanVleet OVER 23.5 Points

Fred VanVleet has been named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week, as he’s averaged 30.3 points, 6.5 assists, 4.8 rebounds, and 2.0 steals per game over a four-game stretch.

He’s doing it while averaging 46.7 percent shooting from the field and 45.3 percent from three.

VanVleet is quickly emerging as a serious candidate to make the All-Star Game this season with his ability to score in bunches and run the show as the team’s primary playmaker. He’s been doing an excellent job filling the shoes of longtime franchise point guard Kyle Lowry, and the beauty of it all is that he was undrafted coming into the league.

In going up against the Phoenix Suns, he may have some extra motivation to prove something.

Stephen Curry OVER 25.5 Points

Stephen Curry shook off a couple of terrible shooting performances on Sunday night, as he had 28 points on 10-of-21 shooting from the field.

He drilled four 3-pointers, which is expected out of him, but he also used his dribbling wizardry, burst of speed, and finishing ability to go 4-of-5 shooting within 10 feet of the rim.

This game is going to be an absolute battle between the Golden State Warriors and Memphis Grizzlies, as both teams are primed to make noise in the Western Conference playoffs this season.

Expect Curry to go off and make a statement in this one.

BetPrep has the line at 25.5 with a -127 juice to the over.

Bradley Beal OVER 24.5 Points

Bradley Beal has been on fire over his last six games, as he’s averaging 27.3 points per game on 45.2 percent shooting.

He’s having success near the rim, as he’s shooting it at a 54.0 percent clip within 10 feet of the basket, which speaks to his strength.

Beal and the Washington Wizards need to get a win, and going up against the Oklahoma City Thunder provides them that easy opportunity for them to do so.

He is coming off just 20 points his last time out, but in the five games prior, he would’ve hit the over of this particular line.

Chris Paul OVER 23.5 Points + Assists

Chris Paul is currently third on the all-time assists leader board in NBA history, as he hopes to move into second and pass Jason Kidd by the time he retires. He is 1,426 assists away from tying Kidd.

In his last five games, CP3 is doing everything he can to close the gap between two of the greatest point guards in NBA history, as he’s averaging 11.2 assists per game.

With that being said, he’s only averaging 11.0 points per game during that stretch, but with a battle against the Toronto Raptors awaiting them up north, CP3 could have some extra fire in him to push him over this line.
