The Utah Jazz are about as banged up as possible right now, ruling out Lauri Markkane, Taylor Hendricks, and Walker Kessler for tonight’s game against the Chicago Bulls. 

What does that mean? 

It means a lot of John Collins on the glass and scoring the basketball, which is why he’s one of my favorite prop bets for Wednesday night’s action. 

Plus, there is a young Utah guard that could be undervalued if he plays tonight.

Let’s break down the best prop bets for this Jazz-Bulls showdown: 

Bulls vs. Jazz best NBA prop bets

  • John Collins OVER 26.5 points and rebounds
  • Ayo Dosunmu OVER 1.5 3-pointers made
  • Keyonte George OVER 4.5 assists

John Collins OVER 26.5 points and rebounds

I love this prop for Collins on Wednesday night, especially with so many frontcourt players out. 

The Utah Jazz forward should be in for a massive workload with Hendricks, Markkanen, and Kessler all ruled out, and he put up 17 points and 15 rebounds on Monday night with Kessler and Markkanen sitting. 

Collins has cleared this prop in five of his last seven games, and he’s been dominating on the glass in his last 10. Collins is averaging 11.1 rebounds and 18.3 rebound chances per game over that stretch. 

Chicago ranks just 15th in the league in rebounding percentage this season, so don’t be shocked if Collins leads the game in rebounding tonight. 

Ayo Dosunmu OVER 1.5 3-pointers made

This prop has been money for Bulls guard Ayo Dosunmu, as he’s made multiple shots from beyond the arc in nine of his last 10 games and 12 of his last 14. 

Dosunmu is shooting 46.9 percent from beyond the arc on 5.8 attempts per game over that 14-game stretch. 

He has a favorable matchup with a Utah team that ranks 29th in the NBA in opponent 3-pointers made per game this season. 

Keyonte George OVER 4.5 assists

Jazz rookie guard Keyonte George is questionable with an illness tonight that limited him to just five minutes in his last game. 

But, if he plays, he’s a great value to go OVER his assists prop. 

Since moving into the starting lineup full-time, George is averaging 5.3 assists per game across nine contests, and that’s hurt by his one assist in five minutes on Monday. Before that, he was averaging 5.9 assists per game over his last eight starts. 

George has cleared 4.5 assists in eight of his last 11 games, averaging 9.4 potential assists per game over that stretch. 

This is a great matchup against a Bulls team that ranks 21st in the NBA in opponent assists per game this season.
