Best NBA Player Props Today (12/2/21)
Chicago Bulls at New York Knicks
Huge matchup tonight at Madison Square Garden as the Bulls roll in to face the Knicks. Julius Randle has struggled mightily in recent games, failing to exceed this 21.5-point mark in three of his last four contests. What’s even worse is that he failed to reach double digits in two of those games.
Randle has a mixed bag of performances against Chicago, going for 13 points in the first meeting and 34 in the last. This time around, the Bulls will have a much better plan in place.
Expert NBA Player Prop Bets: Julius Randle – Under 21.5 Points (-110)
Detroit Pistons at Phoenix Suns
This one could be over right after the ball tips off the first quarter. The Suns are coming off a battle against the Warriors on Tuesday night, so playing the Pistons will probably seem like the JV vs. Varsity game.
Chris Paul is usually hovering around that mark of 10.5 assists. but there shouldn’t be a ton of urgency to score points tonight. After all, Detroit scores the second-fewest points per game in the NBA this season. I expect CP3 to get some well-deserved rest down the stretch in this one.
Expert NBA Player Prop Bet: Chris Paul – Under 10.5 Assists (-112)
San Antonio Spurs at Portland Trail Blazers
The Spurs-Trail Blazers game might not be all that competitive either. However, that doesn’t mean that Jusuf Nurkic can’t grab down a boatload of rebounds. Nurkic has grabbed 10+ boards in five of his last eight games, and this is another great chance to do so.
San Antonio ranks second-worst in the NBA for rebounding rate, meaning Nurkic should be in a perfect position to do some damage at even-odds tonight.
Expert NBA Player Prop Bet: Jusuf Nurkic – Over 11.5 Rebounds (+100)
