NBA Prop Bets of the Day: Best Basketball Props Today 10/28/21
New York Knicks vs. Chicago Bulls (8:10 p.m. ET)
Evan Fournier: Over 14.5 Points (-110) at Caesars
Wager: 1 unit
Going back to Evan Fournier in the same week? Yes.
Fournier’s worst game of the season was against Orlando, and because it was so bad, the prop for Fournier in points remains low. In this game, the Knicks are playing the Chicago Bulls. While the Bulls are incredibly hot at 4-0 and are at home, this isn’t about who’s going to win.
Fournier simply has to score 15 for you to win this bet. He’s done that in three out of four games, and the only one he didn’t, he played his fewest minutes of the season, and the Knicks, in general, had an awful night shooting.
If the Knicks want to take down red-hot Chicago, they will need some serious firepower, and Fournier, with his 32 points in the first game and scoring 18 in two of each of the last three games, makes this one a safer bet.

San Antonio Spurs vs. Dallas Mavericks (8:40 p.m. ET)
Dejounte Murray: Over 7.5 Rebounds (-115) at Caesars
Wager: 1 unit
Dejounte Murray is coming off one of the best games of his career following a 21 point, 12 rebound, and 15 assist triple-double against the Los Angeles Lakers. That’s why the prop for his points is at 17.5, which frankly is too high, considering he’s only hit that once this year in a game that went to overtime.
However, Murray’s rebounding has been top-notch this season for the Spurs, as he’s had at least nine in every game. This is why I am taking over 7.5 rebounds.
The Dallas Mavericks are the worst offensive rebounding team in the NBA and allow 41.7 defensive rebounds a game because of it. Good news for Murray, who averages 8.3 a game. Just based on that is enough for him to go over his 7.5 prop.
Memphis Grizzlies vs. Golden State Warriors (10:10 p.m. ET)
Desmond Bane: Over 20.5 Points + Assists + Rebounds (-120) at Caesars
Wager: 2 units
Desmond Bane has found his stride in year two with the Grizzlies. This year he’s averaged 19.3 points per game and has had at least three rebounds in each contest as well. The 20.5 triple prop here seems lower than it should be, especially in a game against Golden State.
The Warriors aren’t that great of a defensive team, as they are among the league average in points allowed and shooting defense.
Bane has shown a killer edge this season, and while he does still has to compete with Ja Morant for stats in this game, I still love Bane’s 20.5 triple prop more than I do Morant’s 38.5.
I expect Bane to be a big part of the offense in the game of the night. He’s likely going to score more than the prop itself, but if he doesn’t, he will still have assists and rebounds to help get his total.
Bane averages 6.8 when you put those categories together. With that, on top of his 19.3 points per game, it’s why this is my NBA bet of the day.
