The 2021-22 NBA season is in full swing. Friday's basketball action features a primetime matchup between the Golden State Warriors and Chicago Bulls.
Here's three of the best prop bets for Warriors-Bulls, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Warriors vs Bulls Player Props
1. DeMar DeRozan - Points: Under 24.5 (-112)
DeMar DeRozan has been enjoying his first season as a Bull, putting up 26.0 points per game — the second-best average of his career. At the same time, he's hit a bit of a skid lately, finishing with the under on this prop in four straight games. Things don't exactly get easier tonight with the Warriors sporting the top scoring defense in the NBA. Golden State is also holding power forwards to just 20.4 PPG this season (No. 8), making it seem unlikely that DeRozan will hit the over.
2. Lonzo Ball - Threes Made: Over 2.5 (-120)
Primarily known for his playmaking and defense, Lonzo Ball has become a much better three-point shooter this year. He's averaging 3.1 threes made for the second consecutive campaign, while also making a career-best 42.4% of his shots from beyond the arc. Even though Golden State has displayed a solid perimeter defense this season, Ball has hit the over on this prop in about 62% of his games this season, including in eight of his last 10 outings. The Warriors are going through a rough patch and the Bulls point guard needs to take advantage of that.
3. Stephen Curry - Rebounds: Under 5.5 (+104)
It's been well-documented that Stephen Curry has struggled with shooting the ball as of late. However, he's still managed to keep his rebounding numbers up, averaging 7.0 boards in his last five games. While that would easily hit the over on this prop, the Bulls are surrendering the fifth-fewest rebounds to point guards this year. On top of that, they held Curry to just four boards the last time these two teams met back in November. Unless he finds a way to break out of his funk, bettors could get some nice value by taking the under here.
