Friday's Best NBA Player Prop Bets
Bol Bol Under 11.5 Points
The fun might be over for Bol Bol, who is starting to struggle with consistency. Single digits in five of his last nine outings, and now he faces an elite Toronto defense that is seventh in points allowed and seventh in defensive rating. True, Bol had 18 points against the Raptors last week. But he won’t shoot 7 of 8 from the field again. Go under.
Ja Morant Over 1.5 3-Pointers
It’s good to be Ja Morant, who has 2, 2, 3, and 2 triples in his last four outings. We think the trend continues against an awful Pistons defense that is league-average defending the arc but still allows the fourth most points per game in the NBA. Morant has been hunting triples (5.5 attempts in that span), so we feel comfortable in him burying multiple–especially with Desmond Bane still out.
Joel Embiid Over 9.5 Rebounds
Only the Oklahoma City Thunder allow more opponent rebounds than the Lakers, making this a prime spot for Embiid to get back to his elite rebounding ways after a handful of perplexing outings. Embiid had fewer than 10 rebounds in four of his last five games (a measly 8.2 average), but this is a great get-right game for the big man.
