NBA Prop Bets of the Day: Best Basketball Props Today 10/26/21
Philadelphia 76ers vs. New York Knicks (7:30 p.m. ET)
Evan Fournier: Over 20.5 Points + Assists + Rebounds (-105) at BetMGM
Wager: 1 unit
Fournier and the Knicks have looked good in two of their first three games. Two nights ago, the Knicks and Fournier appeared to be flat in their loss against the Orlando Magic. In the other two games, Fournier had a combined points+assists+rebounds total of 44 and 23 respectively. In those games, Fournier took a total of 37 shots, collected eight rebounds and dished out six assists.
Fournier is a key cog in the Knicks revitalized offense and in a big-time game at home against the 76ers, New York will likely lean heavily on his services. Expect Fournier to shoot a bunch of three pointers as he’s already attempted 48 to start the season. The Over on the points for him is 14.5, which I like as it is, but with the triple prop delivering the same odds, I like this as a safer pick should Fournier struggle to shoot from three. He’s given me enough confidence in his contributions in the rebounding and assist department, which makes this one my NBA bet of the day.

Houston Rockets vs. Dallas Mavericks (8:40 p.m. ET)
Christian Wood: Over 9.5 rebounds (-130) at BetMGM
Wager: 1 unit
Christian Wood has played at least 32 minutes in every game this season and is currently averaging 10.7 rebounds per game. While the Rockets are just 27th in field goals attempted, Wood will have a golden opportunity going against the Dallas Mavericks who are a top-10 volume shooting team in the league. Teammate Daniel Theis‘ season high is just five rebounds, so I am not concerned with him keeping Wood from grabbing 10.
It’s simple. In a game that has an Over/Under of 220 total points, I expect this to be high scoring and high volume. To make even more sense of this pick, Dallas is last in the league in defensive rebounds allowed. I like Wood going Over 9.5 rebounds tonight and that is why this is my second prop I believe you should be in on.
Denver Nuggets vs. Utah Jazz (10:10 p.m. ET)
Nikola Jokic: Over 38.5 Points + Rebounds (-110) at BetMGM
Wager: 1 unit
Nikola Jokic is one of the game’s premier players and is logging at least 34 minutes per game this season. He’s second in player efficiency rating, he’s second in rebounds per game at 16 and is ninth in points per game with 27.7. This is a big game in which the Nuggets are seven-point underdogs. I’m going with the points and rebounds for Jokic, who has hit that Over of 38.5 in every game this season.
Regardless of all of that, though, the Jazz find themselves as the second-to-worst defensive rebounding team, allowing an alarming 15.5 offensive rebounds per game. Utah also happens to be 15th in field goal attempts per game at 90.5 and 23rd in shooting percentage at 42.5%. This game has an Over/Under of 218.5 and I expect Jokic to have plenty of opportunities to break past the Over on this one.
