Welcome back to another night of NBA props on Friday, October 29, 2021. In this article, I will identify my best NBA prop bets tonight going into the weekend.
Last night was yet another 3-0 night of bets, with Stephen Curry, DeMar DeRozan, and Jakob Poeltl all coming through on their respective prop bets. That is now two 3-0 nights in the first three attempts this season, so let’s keep the good times rolling!
Let’s take a look and see where the value is and which NBA betting sites are offering the best NBA odds.
Best NBA Player Props Today (10/29/21)
James Harden (Brooklyn Nets): Over 20.5 Points
To start the NBA prop bets, we’ll take it to Brooklyn. Harden hasn’t exceeded 20.5 points yet this season, but tonight is the night that he finally cracks the mark. The one thing that Harden is really struggling with is not getting to the free-throw line, only maxing out at four attempts in any game this season. That will inevitably change at some point, as will his 33.3% shooting percentage from behind the arc. So far this season, nine different players have exceeded the 20.5-point mark against the Indiana Pacers. Look for Harden, and probably his teammate Kevin Durant, to be the next names on this list.
Best Odds – (-120) at PointsBet
Ivica Zubac (Los Angeles Clippers): Over 7.5 Rebounds
With numerous front-court players (Kawhi Leonard, Serge Ibaka, Marcus Morris) still out for the Clippers, Zubac should have all the opportunities he needs to exceed 7.5 rebounds. As a result of the injuries, Zubac’s minutes have increased in each of the last two games. For tonight’s matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers, the Clippers will need his size. Hopefully, LA needs Zubac’s size for closer to 30 minutes this time around. Getting plus-odds on a guy playing that many minutes, in addition to playing a pivotal role, is exactly what we’re looking for.

LaMelo Ball (Charlotte Hornets): Over 5.5 Assists
Ball has exceeded 5.5 assists in three of his five games this season, with one of the misnomers being five assists in a contest. Tonight’s matchup on the road against the Miami Heat will be a tough one, but the assists make more sense for Ball than scoring points. The Heat have one of the best defenses in basketball, so you would have to imagine they deploy a game plan that tries to keep Ball from scoring. This should mean a lot of open looks for Charlotte teammates like Gordon Hayward and Miles Bridges.
