Cavaliers C Jarrett Allen Over 33.5 Points + Assists + Rebounds (-118)

In the wake of injuries to starters Evan Mobley and Darius Garland, the Cleveland Cavaliers managed to keep their head above water and win their last three games. While winning in the NBA is a team effort, the Cavs have to give Jarrett Allen a lot of credit for winning eight of their last 11 games.

Allen’s last game, a 117-115 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday, saw the center go off for 29 points, 16 rebounds and two blocks. I’m no math whiz, but those stats pushed Allen way over Thursday’s PAR total of 33.5, and I like his chances to put up another big game in France.

Allen has been very consistent, posting seven-straight double-doubles and going over Thursday’s NBA lines in five of those seven games.

Remember, this game tips off at 2 pm ET, so get your NBA bets in early for Allen.

Knicks F OG Anunoby 2+ Steals (+225)

After playing the Toronto Raptors’ first 27 games of the season, Forward OG Anunoby brought his strong defensive play to the New York Knicks, where he’s been for his last five starts.


Steals props are always tricky, with a fair bit of luck involved, even when betting on a guy who plays tight defense like Anonoby. But, since coming to New York, Anunoby has had at least one steal in each start and twice swiped two balls from opponents. If we look back at his time in Toronto, he’s hit this prop in four of his last seven games.

Anunoby should spend a fair amount of time guarding Kyrie Irving, whose Vegas betting odds for turnovers is 2.5 for this game, and will be without Luka Doncic. Without the dark-horse NBA MVP candidate on the court, Irving will have to do more, which usually results in more mistakes.

 

 

Questions of the Day

Which matchups boast the most enticing over/under props due to potential defensive?


The Celtics vs Bucks game offers good prop NBA betting value on the Over/Under, with Boston ranking third in NBA opponent points per game and the Bucks ranked at 119.9.

Assuming healthy lineups, is there any “revenge game?”


Not exactly, but the Celtics and Bucks are becoming rivals as the two best teams in the Eastern Conference. The pair could meet in the playoffs for a future revenge game.
