We have a terrific TNT doubleheader of Pacers-Celtics and Sixers-Warriors that should have Charles Barkley, Ernie Johnson and Shaquille O’Neal on the edges of their seats. Even more so if Joel Embiid plays against Golden State after missing the last two games because of knee soreness.

We probably will not know Embiid’s status until just before tipoff, so we are staying away from touting that game. That is too big a variable.

But let’s have a crack at the other four:

NBA Player Props Tonight for Tuesday, January 30, 2024

Dejounte Murray to triple-double

This guy is crazy overdue after having nine triple-doubles for the Spurs two seasons ago. With the way the Lakers have been playing defense, this may be the night he gets his first of the season. It is bound to happen at some point and the home team should be stoked in front of what is expected to be a sellout crowd.

The Pick: Dejounte Murray to triple-double (+2800)

Josh Hart Triple-double 

Hart is more likely than any member of the Knicks to get a triple-double because he does a little of everything and is the quintessential glue guy. He’s also getting many more minutes as a starter with injuries to Robinson and Randle. One extra bucket and three more assists would have done it for him last night. This line is too enticing to pass up.

The Pick: Josh Hart to have a triple double (+3000)

Gar Trent Jr. Double-double and Dennis Schroder Double-double 

Poeltl is a terrific defender, and the Raptors have very little behind him at center after trading backup Precious Achiuwa to the Knicks. That should open this up for Nikola Vucevic to have a bigger than usual night. He had 24 points and 14 rebounds with a team-high seven assists the last time these teams played 12 days ago. Unfortunately, with his double-double line at only -350, we are going with a Toronto guard, Gary Trent Jr., who is going to see a lot more playing time because of the injuries to Quickley and Barrett. He had one earlier this season against Charlotte. Once again, the size of this line makes it too enticing to pass up. A safer double-double pick is point guard Dennis Schroder at +550.

The Pick: Gary Trent Jr. to have a double-double (+4500) or Dennis Schroder to have a double-double (+550).

Jaylen Brown Double-double

This will be the fifth meeting between the teams and the first that has included Siakam, a terrific defender who will go up against the Celtics’ All-Star Jayson Tatum. Haliburton had a triple-double against the Celtics earlier this season, but his questionable status makes him a bad bet. He has already had one false start trying to come back from this injury. This national TV matchup is a chance for the Pacers to show that they can compete with the very best team in the East on the road in Boston, where the Celtics had been unbeatable until recently. Jaylen Brown was three assists shy of his second triple-double of the season last night vs. New Orleans.

The Pick: Jaylen Brown to have a double-double (+425)
