The Atlanta Hawks and Chicago Bulls will likely face off in the No. 10 vs. No. 9 seed game in the NBA’s play-in tournament, but which arena will it be at?

Right now, the Bulls have the advantage, sitting 1.5 games ahead of the Hawks, but Atlanta could make up some serious ground on the road on Monday night.

I don’t love either of these teams to cover – Atlanta has the worst ATS record in the NBA this season – so why not look at the prop market for this matchup?

There are a couple of Hawks players that have been hot as of late, and their star guard could be undervalued on Monday night: 

Hawks vs. Bulls best NBA prop bets 

  • Dejounte Murray to record a double-double
  • Bogdan Bogdanovic OVER 3.5 3-pointers Made
  • DeMar DeRozan OVER 4.5 assists

Dejounte Murray to record a double-double

Dejounte Murray is thriving with Trae Young out of the lineup, averaging 26.2 points, 9.0 assists, and 5.6 rebounds in 23 games without the All-Star guard this season.

Over his last 11 games, Murray has seven double-doubles, averaging 27.3 points and 9.6 assists per game over that stretch. I love him to pick up a double-double tonight against a Chicago team that ranks 23rd in the NBA in opponent assists per game allowed this season.

During this 11-game stretch, Murray is averaging 16.0 potential assists per game. He’s a must-bet at -105 odds for a prop he’s hitting well over 50 percent of the time over the last three weeks. 

Bogdan Bogdanovic OVER 3.5 3-pointers Made

Hawks sharpshooter Bogdan Bogdanovic has been red hot as of late, scoring 24 points in a win over Boston and 38 in a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. 

A volume 3-point shooter, Bogi has made four or more shots from deep in three of his last six games. Not only that but he’s had a six 3-pointer game against the Bulls this season. 

With Young out, there are more looks for Bogdanovic from outside, and now he’s taking on a Bulls team that ranks 29th in the NBA in opponent 3-pointers allowed per game at 14.6. 

I wouldn’t be shocked to see Bogi go OVER this prop. 

DeMar DeRozan OVER 4.5 assists

There are going to be some down assist games for DeMar DeRozan, but he’s cleared 4.5 dimes in six of his last 12 games, averaging 5.0 assists per game over that stretch. 

The Bulls wing is averaging 10.2 potential assists per game over that stretch, so I think he’ll have the chance to get five dimes tonight – his teammates just need to make shots. 

DeRozan has scored the ball well as of late, so I wouldn’t be shocked to see the Hawks – who blitz ball-handlers more than any team in the NBA – try to force the rock out of his hands tonight.
