NBA Prop Bets of the Day: Best Basketball Props Today 10/29/21

Los Angeles Clippers at Portland Trail Blazers (10:00 pm ET)

Paul George: Over 2.5 Made Three-Pointers (-165) at BetMGM

Wager: 1 Unit

When these two teams met in Los Angeles on Monday, Paul George made two three-pointers on his way to just 14 points. However, he only logged 27 minutes with the Clippers winning by 30 points.

This game should be closer since it’s in Portland, so George should see more action. Based on his season averages of 3.0 made three-pointers on 9.8 attempts per game, the Over looks like the way to go in this NBA player prop pick.

Sacramento Kings at New Orleans Pelicans (8:00 pm ET)

Harrison Barnes: Over 17.5 Points (-115) at BetMGM

Wager: 1 Unit

Harrison Barnes has been one of the Sacramento Kings’ offensive leaders through four games, scoring at least 22 points in every contest. His minutes have increased in each of his four seasons with the Kings and he’s currently averaging a career-high 37.3 minutes per game.

Barnes has also been more aggressive with his shot this season, averaging 17.5 field-goal attempts per game. If his usage continues to be that high, he should cash this NBA betting pick with another 20-point performance.

Toronto Raptors vs Orlando Magic (7:00 pm ET)

OG Anunoby: Over 18.5 Points (-110) at BetMGM

Wager: 1 Unit

OG Anunoby has warmed up after a slow start, tallying at least 22 points in each of his last three games. Similar to Barnes, his shot volume has increased significantly as he’s averaging 17.4 field-goal attempts per game, including 8.2 from beyond the arc.

The Orlando Magic have the worst defensive rating in the league per Basketball-Reference, so Anunoby could thrive in this matchup. Look for him to stay hot tonight in our NBA bet of the day.
