There's just 6 games on the NBA Slate for Tuesday, but that's plenty of options when searching for the best NBA betting player props. Who want's some winning picks to boost their bankroll?

How Many Points Will Joe Johnson Score?

Over 16.5 -125
Under 16.5 -105
JJ can be very inconsistent at times, but when he's playing well, he's straight up money. He's also recovering from the flu bug. In his last game against Charlotte, Johnson had a huge game with 21 points and seemed to have recovered fully. Now, he faces a Miami Heat team that's struggling without Lebron James. Without Brook Lopez in the lineup , the offense has had to come from somewhere and this is a game at home in which Joe Johnson should score 17 points or more. That said, he's inconsistent and I don't trust him. Take the under.

Total Points For Dirk Nowitzki

Over 20.5 -115
Under 20.5 -115
Although he's not the player that he once was due to age, Dirk Nowitzki has still had a very good season on a very good Mavericks squad.

Nowitzki has managed back to back 20 plus point games against two teams that are much better than the Knicks in the Warriors and the Pelicans. What comes up must come down, but I don't think that it will happen against the Knicks, who have had their worst start in franchise history. Look for Dirk to light it up in Dallas.

Total Points for Enes Kanter

Over 12.5 -115
Under 12.5 -115
Kanter is a very underrated and much improved big man on a Utah Jazz team in which he will see the basketball as long as he plays well. Kanter has scored 12.5 points or more in 8 out of his last 10 games and I can see him getting a lot of opportunities against an up and coming New Orleans Pelicans team. Take the over.

Total Points For Tyreke Evans

Over 16.5 -125
Under 16.5 -105
Anthony "Unibrow" Davis has participated in the shoot around today. This tells me that he will play tonight against the Utah Jazz. Davis will be looking to make a statement that he's back. This means less opportunities for Tyreke Evans, who is somewhat of a ball hog himself. That said, this team goes through Brow and Evans, who is coming off of back to back 30 point plus games will be hard-pressed to hit 20 points tonight. Expect a confident Evans to just squeak past the 17 point mark. Over is the play according to this games NBA odds.

Total Points For Ben McLemore

Over 12.5 -125
Under 12.5 -105
McLemore, who is filled with talent, but has underperformed as a professional, has been playing some of the best basketball of his young career.

In his last 3 games, he's eclipsed the 12.5 point mark. Some of this is due to the absence of DeMarcus Cousins, but McLemore has been drilling every shot that he's been taking lately. He's looking like a future star and after watching a couple of these past games, I'm a believer in Ben McLemore. Take the over.

Total Assists For Darren Collison

Over 6-125
Under 6 -105
I don't think that Collison will ever be a great point guard in this league, but he's definitely a serviceable, slightly above average one. One of his specialties is consistency in dishing the rock. In his last 4 games, he's had 6 assists or more in each contest. This prop has the possibility of being a push, but I'm expecting the under because he'll be dealing with a tough OKC team.
