Oklahoma City has been a Western Conference powerhouse this season ahead of Tuesday's trip to Orlando, as we offer our best Thunder vs. Magic player props based on the best NBA odds.

The Oklahoma City Thunder and Orlando Magic have been two of the NBA's biggest surprises this season, and each enter Tuesday's clash with a winning record and an inside track to the postseason.

The Magic sit sixth in the Eastern Conference with a 29-24 record, including an impressive 17-7 mark at home this season. Orlando has won two straight games entering Tuesday's contest, both coming at Kia Center.

Meanwhile, the Thunder last played on Sunday at home against the Sacramento Kings, which came on the second night of a back-to-back. OKC has bounced between home and road affairs for most of February, so it's fair to wonder whether the travel will wear on the team at some point.

This is a good spot for the Magic to take advantage of potentially tired legs. Orlando hasn't played since Saturday and comes into this contest with no reported injuries.

Will the Magic pick up a third straight home victory, or will an NBA Finals odds contender Thunder team prove too much to handle?

Here are our best Thunder vs. Magic NBA player props and NBA picks (odds via our best NBA betting sites; pick confidence based on a 1-to-5-star scale).

It's a battle between the first and second overall picks in the 2022 NBA Draft on Tuesday night, as Paolo Banchero and Chet Holmgren square off. Banchero captured Rookie of the Year honors last year while Holmgren was sidelined with an injury. The latter is doing his best to chase down Victor Wembanyama by this year's Rookie of the Year odds

On Tuesday, neither player is projected to set the world on fire from a scoring perspective, but it's Banchero's line that's set far too high.

In fact, Banchero's points total has already dropped from its opening number of 24.5, and we're still seeing value on the Under. According to NumberFire, Banchero is projected to score just 19.6 points on Tuesday, which is likely why we continue to see money come in on the Under even as the total plummets.

When we run that projection against FanDuel's -115 odds on Under 22.5 points, we're getting roughly 26% positive expected value on this bet.

Meanwhile, Pinnacle, which features one of the most respected trading teams in the sports betting industry, initially priced Under 22.5 at -113 after moving its line from 23.5. It's since been smashed to -138, telling us that sharp money is backing the Under at this price or one even shorter.

Among our best sports betting sites, DraftKings and bet365 offer relatively competitive prices of -120 to back the Under.

We've seen Banchero act as more of a facilitator in recent games, so it's possible he fills that role again on Tuesday.

Markelle Fultz Over 3.5 assists (+125 via BetMGM) ⭐⭐⭐

We move from one first overall pick to another, though Markelle Fultz's journey to this point in his career has been far bumpier than Banchero's.

Fultz looked rejuvenated when he left Philadelphia for Orlando, and he continues to serve as a solid player for the Magic in his seventh season in the league.

The 25-year-old is averaging just 3.7 assists on the season, but his projection on Tuesday is far higher than that number. He's projected to carve up the Thunder's defense to the tune of 4.9 assists, according to NumberFire. 

This one is more about the projection than anything else, as we're getting 59% +EV based on NumberFire's data vs. these +125 odds at BetMGM on Over 3.5 assists.

You can get an even better price on this prop by using our exclusive BetMGM bonus code: SBRBONUS and taking advantage of BetMGM's 33% boost for one NBA bet!

Franz Wagner Under 5.5 rebounds (-108 via FanDuel) ⭐⭐⭐  

Considering Franz Wagner is 6-foot-10, he's not much of a rebounder. The third-year forward is averaging a career high in boards, but that number is still just 5.6. On Tuesday, Wagner is projected to pull down exactly five rebounds.

Based on that projection, we're getting roughly 18.5% +EV on this bet thanks to FanDuel's -108 odds on the Under.

Comparatively, our other best sports betting apps are hovering around -115 to back the Under, and Pinnacle is at -125.

Among our best sportsbooks, FanDuel is usually the main culprit when it comes to these rogue prices, so you need to act quickly before it adjusts to match the rest.

Your expected value drops to just better than 12% at -120, and BetRivers is already pricing its Under at -129.
