Friday Player Props Best Bets
There are 11 games on the Friday night NBA schedule and why not highlight my three player prop best bets. The schedule has a few exciting games. Tonight features some exciting matchups. The Boston Celtics visit the Milwaukee Bucks, the Phoenix Suns visit the Tampa Bay Raptors, and the Denver Nuggets meet the New Orleans Pelicans. In this post I will highlight my three player props best bets.
Jamal Murray Over 21.5 Points
This is my favorite Friday player prop best bet for tonight. Murray averages 21.1 points per game this season. However, these two teams matched up on March 21st, and Murray scored 23 points on 9-16 shooting. Furthermore, the Pelicans three point defense is one of the worst in the entire league post All-Star break. In fact, the Pelicans allow 15 made three point field goals since the All-Star break. Over the last two weeks the Pelicans defense allows 37.3 points per game to the point guard position. Lastly, Lonzo Ball, the Pelicans best perimeter defender will be out tonight with an injury.
Deandre Ayton Over 10.5 Rebounds
Deandre Ayton faces the Raptors interior defense tonight which is non-existent. In fact, these two teams played each other earlier this season and Ayton grabbed 16 rebounds. Furthermore, Ayton averages 11.6 rebounds per game on the road this season. Ayton should be able to control the paint tonight against the Raptors, who do not have a big man to guard Ayton. Also, the Raptors allow 10 offensive rebounds per game and rank #24 in opponent rebounds per game.
Jerami Grant Over 23.5 Points
Grant is a player prop best bet cash cow all season. The betting markets took a while to adjust to the success Grant is having with the Pistons this season. In fact, Grant leads the Pistons in scoring this season at 23 points per game, and has scored 23 or more points in three out his last four games. In addition, Grant is averaging 27 points per game against the Brooklyn Nets this season.
