Best NBA Prop Bets Tonight for Saturday, Nov. 9
The NBA season has gotten off to an exciting, but in some ways unexpected start. From pleasant surprises like the early success of the Phoenix Suns to the major disappointment the Golden State Warriors have become, the first few weeks of the NBA season have provided plenty to talk about and, more importantly for some, gamble on.
With a solid slate set for Saturday night, here are the best NBA prop bets for tonight that you should consider placing a wager on.
All prop bets and lines are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
1. Kemba Walker - Points: Over 24.5 (-120) – Celtics vs. Spurs
Kemba Walker's start to his Celtics career has gone pretty well so far. He's been scoring lots of points, averaging 24.3 points per game (PPG). He might have only managed 14 points in his last game, but it was an emotional night for him, given it was his first time playing in Charlotte where he spent the first eight years of his NBA career. However, in the four games prior to that night, Walker averaged 30.5 PPG. If he can return to form tonight against the San Antonio Spurs, Kemba could top this over/under total.
2. 1st Half Winner: Memphis Grizzlies (+158) – Mavericks vs. Grizzles
The Dallas Mavericks come into this game on the wrong end of a back-to-back set, following a hard-fought battle with the New York Knicks on Friday night, in which their two star players, Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis, played heavy minutes. Not to mention, the Mavericks had to get on a plane and travel to Memphis after the game in Dallas last night. The Grizzlies also played last night, at Orlando, but saw their starters play less minutes as the game turned into a blowout. Back in their home building tonight, Memphis could have fresher legs and take a lead into halftime. Additionally, the Grizzlies rank No. 13 in opponent's first half points (53.6) while Dallas ranks No. 22 (56.2). Also of note, the Mavericks trailed the Knicks by four points at the half last night.
3. Devonte' Graham - Points: Under 15.5 (-122) – Pelicans vs. Hornets
Devonte' Graham has gotten off to the best start of his career, dropping as many as 35 points in a night. However, he draws one of the toughest defensive matchups in the NBA in the Pelicans' Jrue Holiday tonight. Heralded as one of the league's best perimeter defenders, Holiday could cause fits for the young point guard, who has also had his share of struggles this year. Plus, Graham has only topped this point total twice in the last five games. If Holiday spends his night patrolling Graham, chances are he scores less than 16 points this evening.
