Richard Janvrin is here with your NBA Best Bets for November 11, 2021 action. See our best NBA bet picks today.
After a massive 13-game slate on Wednesday, we now look to a far smaller three-game slate. Even with three-game slates, these are still great opportunities to make some money.
Usually, with these Thursday slates, we tend to catch a team that may be playing back-to-back games or playing three games in four days. So we get a unique opportunity to exploit that when that happens as teams may rest their usual starters and drop the game.
From yesterday, we saw Anthony Edwards of the Minnesota Timberwolves absolutely go off, scoring 48 points. Yesterday’s rebound leader does concern today’s slate as Indiana Pacers big man Domantas Sabonis brought down 19 boards.
With three games on the slate, let’s look ahead to the best bets you can make.
All NBA gameday odds and lines are current as of 11:00 a.m. ET on Thursday, November 11.

NBA Bets of the Day 11/11/21
Toronto Raptors at Philadelphia 76ers, 7:00 p.m. ET
Best Bet: Toronto Raptors +3 (-110) at Caesars
This is a tough game to call. Both teams have not been scoring well, but the Philadelphia 76ers are dealing with a ton of injuries. The list includes Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Joel Embiid, Matisse Thybulle, Grant Riller, Tobias Harris, and Isaiah Joe.
It’s unclear who will play, but according to ESPN, Embiid, Simmons, and Riller will be out. The team could also be without Harris, who is still in the COVID protocol.
The Raptors are averaging just under 103 points per game in the month of November and are coming off a 16-point loss on the road to the Boston Celtics.
This could be a chance for the Raptors to get right against a depleted 76ers roster.
However, the other bet to take would be the under.
Indiana Pacers @ Utah Jazz, 9:00 p.m. ET
Best Bet: Jazz -10 (-110) at Caesars
I’ve been riding the Jazz all season, and it has seemingly paid off more than it hasn’t.
The Jazz will be without Rudy Gay, but the Pacers will also be without Caris LeVert. LeVert being out is much more of an impact on the Pacers than Gay on the Jazz.
Sabonis is coming off a big game on the boards, but Utah has an excellent rebounder on their team in Rudy Gobert, who leads the league with nearly 16 per game.
The Jazz currently rank top-four in the league in points per game, rebounds per game, and opponents points per game, limiting teams to 102.2.
Heading into this game, the Jazz is also coming off a day of rest, whereas the Pacers are coming off a loss yesterday on the road to the Denver Nuggets, and that was without Nikola Jokić. This continued their streak of losing on the road, dropping five of six road games this season.
A double-digit loss is incoming for the Pacers.
Miami Heat @ Los Angeles Clippers, 10:30 p.m. ET
Best Bet: Clippers -4 (-110) at Caesars
Heading into this late-night west coast matchup, the Heat will be without Markieff Morris and Max Strus. However, we now have to add Jimmy Butler to the list of injuries. He injured his ankle in the team’s loss to the Los Angeles Lakers yesterday and did not return to the game.
Without these players and the Clippers on hot-streak, winning five games in a row, it’s going to be difficult to count on the Heat to stop the No. 6 seed in the Western Conference.
The Clippers will also be coming off a day of rest.
During this streak, the team is shooting 41 percent from behind the arc.
At full strength, the Heat is the pick, but with so many injuries and going up against a Clippers team that is seventh in the league in opponent’s points per game at just over 103, the Heat may not have the firepower in this one to get it done.
