Between a Nikola Jokic boosted prop and Bam Adebayo leading Miami to a much needed victory, we have some star-studded prop plays for your NBA slate this Friday. As most veteran NBA bettors know, Friday is usually the best day of the week for action in the Association.
Need some extra action as we head into the weekend? We got you! Check out our best NBA player props for Friday, November 3.
In a fantastic Friday night matchup, the Knicks take on the Bucks and their newly constructed offense led by Damian Lillard. While the Bucks offense will be tough to defend, their defense has left something to be desired in most statistical categories, especially with the absence of Jrue Holiday.
The Bucks are allowing opponents to shoot 56% from 5-9 feet from the basket. This is exactly where Brunson makes his living with elite footwork. The Bucks are also struggling to defend the trey-ball, allowing opponents to shoot over 41% from deep.
While Brunson and the Knicks have gone through their struggles in the early part of the season, expect Jalen to have a breakout game against Lillard who has obviously lost a step or two on the defensive end.
While we are huge Lu Dort believers, the Oklahoma City Thunder don’t need him to shoot 10 to 15 shots per game to have a chance at a victory anymore.
With the emergence of Shai, Giddey, J Dub, and Holmgren as the offensive core, Lu Dort is more of a defensive swiss-army knife and savvy cutter in Mark Daigneault’s offense.
He’s only hit this mark once this season, against a Cleveland defense that struggles defending the wing. With Golden State’s defense slowly improving with the emergence of Kuminga and Draymond Green back in the lineup, expect Dort to make his mark as a hustle player more than an offensive weapon in what could be a statement game for the young Thunder.
A low-maintenance, high-energy forward, Deni Avdija has had a solid start to the young season, increasing his point total in each game. The 22-year-old is shooting 50% from beyond the arc and has notched a steal in each game thus far.
After a great performance against Atlanta the other night, expect Deni to put up stats against a Miami bench unit that has struggled to make a positive impact so far. With the Wizards and Heat both allowing solid 3PT% to opposing offenses, expect a fairly high scoring, high pace game in South Beach.
Staying with this game, Bam Adebayo will face Daniel Gafford (GTD), who has struggled to stop opposing offenses this season. In games Gafford has played, the Wizards allowed 16 PTS to Jaren Jackson Jr. and 143 points to the Pacers.
With Miami desperately needing a win, expect Adebayo, who has reached the 20 point mark in three of his four games, to dominate the paint while leading this team to their 2nd victory of the young season.
We are betting on Mikal Bridges to positively impact every aspect of tonight’s game against the Bulls. Chicago allows nearly 113 PPG while Brooklyn’s defense hasn’t been up to par, allowing over 116 PPG.
This will leave plenty of opportunity for Bridges to grab his stats due to a fast paced game. With shooters surrounding the potential All-Star, we are banking on Cam Thomas, Cam Johnson, and Spencer Dinwidee making some big shots to lead the Nets over Chicago tonight. Bridges has hit this over all but one game thus far.
Jokic vs. a rookie big man, Dwight Powell, and Maxi Kleber. While we have seen some great flashes from rookie center Dereck Lively II in his handful of games, Jokic will feast in this game as a playmaker at the top of the key.
With the Mavericks fast-paced style, Nikola will have increased rebounding opportunities which will ultimately lead to more fast break assist opportunities. Dallas sits in the middle of the pack for opponent rebounding and assist stats.
As a boosted bet, we love Jokic to secure his third triple double of the season while the Nuggets should take control of this game early, with their two-time MVP dominating the Mavs’ big men.
