NBA Prop of the Day: Doubtful Davis Means Moore Points for E’Twaun
After leaving Monday night’s game in the third quarter with a right ankle injury, Anthony Davis is currently listed as doubtful for tonight’s game in Memphis.

Despite that, Bovada still allows you to bet on Davis’ point and rebound totals (26 and 10, respectively) in tonight’s game. The one caveat? If he doesn’t play, the bet will be graded as no action. There is, however, a way to handicap Davis’ likely absence.
Assuming Davis rides the bench tonight, other Pelicans’ point totals are likely to increase. According to Fantasy Labs’ player props tool, the player expected to see the biggest jump in points is E’Twaun Moore. With a posted point total of 12 (-115), Bovada is projecting 12.2 points for the shooting guard. Fantasy Labs, on the other hand, has factored in Davis’ absence. They’ve got Moore putting up 18.6, a 53% difference.
