The days are winding down before the NBA All-Star break, but Tuesday brings us a small handful of games to make a couple betting picks from. Including in the NBA betting picks we like for Tuesday, February 11, are a couple of player props. One is for Jaylen Brown and the other is for Zion Williamson.

Jaylen Brown, SG, Boston Celtics

– Over 5.5 Rebounds (-129)

For the first NBA betting pick on Tuesday, we’re going with a player prop for Jaylen Brown.

I love this spot for Brown to go over 5.5 rebounds. This Boston Celtics team will likely go with more small-ball lineups on Tuesday because of the style of play from the Houston Rockets. If that’s the case, this will lead to a lot of rebound opportunities for Brown. I could see guys like Enes Kanter and Daniel Theis playing fewer minutes on Tuesday, as Boston instead rolls out lineups like with Kemba Walker, Marcus Smart, Gordon Hayward, Jayson Tatum, and Brown.

If you look at the RotoGrinders Defense vs. Matchup Tool, you’ll see more positive things in favor of Brown in this spot. Scoring wing players see a 25% boost in rebounds against the Rockets. Brown also averages around 6.5 rebounds per game and this line is only at 5.5. I want to jump on this thing now before the juice gets higher. I’m also going to make it my Lock Bet of the night in the SharpSide app. I will be on over 5.5 rebounds for Brown on Tuesday.

Zion Williamson, SF, New Orleans Pelicans

– Over 8.5 rebounds (-139)

My next bet will be a Zion Williamson player prop bet and I will have the over on 8.5 rebounds for Williamson on Tuesday.

I like this spot for Williamson because the game has a total of 240 that should be a fast-paced, up-and-down game. On top of that, we have the chance that Brandon Ingram might sit. If that’s the case, I could see this line moving to 9.5 rebounds. That would instantly buy us some value on our pick of over 8.5 rebounds and I love betting on spots that can get better due to injury news.

The Portland Trail Blazers seem like a tough rebounding team, but when you compare them to other matchups, this is a boost in rebounds for Williamson. The versatile forward position will see a boost in rebounds by 14.87% against Portland comparative to other teams. This is a great spot to hit Zion’s over and I like it at 8.5 rebounds.
