Bradley Beal was limited from the perimeter, R.J. Barrett cashed his assist total, and Saddiq Bey went off against the Magic en route to a 3-1 night on player props to open the week Monday.

Let's keep piling up the wins tonight. Here's what we're rolling with for Tuesday's seven-game slate.

Bam Adebayo under 4.5 assists

Adebayo's one of the most underrated passing big men in the league. He's fresh off a 10-assist performance against the Hornets and has notched at least five dimes in six of the previous eight.

However, tonight will be one of the most difficult draws for him as a facilitator.

The Mavericks allow 3.5 assists per game to centers this season, but they're improving rapidly, surrendering just 2.8 over the last 15 and an even more impressive 2.3 over the previous seven.

Overall, the Mavericks' 0.564 assists per made field goal allowed is the third-best clip in the NBA, behind only the Jazz and Suns.

To top it off, Adebayo has struggled in each of his last two meetings versus Dallas, posting just five combined assists.

Marcus Morris over 2.5 made threes

The Clippers make the fifth-most threes per game (14.4) in basketball and rank No. 3 in that department over the last 15 (14.6). The X-factor from deep hasn't been Kawhi Leonard or Paul George; it's been Morris, whose 46.7% mark from downtown this season is both a career and team high.

He could have a field day from beyond the arc Tuesday against the Raptors' perimeter defense, which has been virtually non-existent. Toronto's bottom-six in the NBA in both 3-point percentage (37.7%) and makes per game allowed (13.8) this season, while surrendering far and away the most triples per contest to opposing power forwards (2.9)

Richaun Holmes over 8.5 rebounds

Holmes is up to a career-high 8.7 rebounds per game in his second season as a primary starter for the Kings. He should easily surpass his average and get into double-digits tonight against the Thunder, who have handed out boards to everyone.

OKC's No. 23 in the league in total rebounds allowed per contest (54.3), while the number's ballooned to an even 56 across the last three. Centers, in particular, have gone bananas on the score sheet and average 16.1 rebounds against the Thunder this season and close to 17 over the last 15, making Holmes an easy play.

Chris Paul under 3.5 rebounds

Paul's rebound total is one of the few Suns 'under' props I'd be willing to take tonight; otherwise, they should do whatever they want as 12.5-point favorites against the Cavaliers.

The veteran floor general's lighting up the stat sheet of late but has been limited to three or fewer rebounds in three consecutive. Here, he draws a Cavs defense that lets up 5.8 per game to floor generals, the fourth-lowest mark in the league.
