NBA Prop Bets of the Day: Best Basketball Props Today 11/5/21

Los Angeles Clippers at Minnesota Timberwolves (8:00 pm ET)

Paul George: Over 28.5 Points (-110) at Caesars

Wager: 1 Unit

We cashed the same prop in the exact same matchup on Wednesday with Paul George scoring 32 points against the Minnesota Timberwolves. He’s now averaging an NBA-high 28.9 points per game after scoring at least 29 points in five of seven games this season, including four games with at least 32 points.

The Over here is appealing for two reasons. First, George’s usage rate is a whopping 34.1 percent. Second, he’s shooting 50.7 percent from the field, which includes his average of 9.1 three-point attempts per game. Let’s roll with the Over again.

Cleveland Cavaliers at Toronto Raptors (7:30 pm ET)

Jarrett Allen: Over 13.5 Points (-130) at Caesars

Wager: 1 Unit

The Cleveland Cavaliers entered the season with a deep frontcourt, but COVID has left them shorthanded of late. Kevin Love has missed the last two games in health and safety protocols, while Lauri Markkanen joined him in the protocols for Wednesday’s game.

Jarrett Allen has seen his playing time soar this week as a result, logging at least 35 minutes in both games this week while scoring 24 points in both. Expect him to receive added playing time in this contest as well, giving him a favorable chance to hit the Over.

Charlotte Hornets at Sacramento Kings (10:00 pm ET)

Miles Bridges: Over 6.5 Rebounds (-140) at Caesars

Wager: 1 Unit

Miles Bridges has seen his playing time increase this season up to a career-high 35.8 minutes per game. His numbers have risen across the board as a result, including his rebounds which are up to 8.0 per game.

Bridges has grabbed at least six rebounds in every game this year while the Sacramento Kings have allowed the third-most boards per game in the league. The 23-year-old forward appears primed for another big night on the glass, making him our NBA bet of the day.
