Before the entire league takes Thanksgiving off, we have a full 10-game slate today. 

Today, I have two player props and my best bet for the Clippers-Warriors game. We’re looking to get some good juju before Black Friday rolls around and every team plays – which will be an even fuller day of betting. 

Let’s not waste anymore time. Here are my best bets. 

NBA Best Bets Today

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo UNDER 0.5 Threes
  • Tyrese Haliburton UNDER 11.5 Assists
  • Clippers +10.5 vs. Warriors 

Giannis Antetokounmpo UNDER 0.5 Threes

As long as we can bet the UNDER on Antetokounmpo’s threes with plus money, I will. He’s shooting 22% from three this season. He’s hit a three in five straight games, but we know that he is not a shooter. The regression for him as a shooter will happen, and I’m good betting it until it does. 

Tyrese Haliburton UNDER 11.5 Assists

Haliburton is coming off consecutive 14-assist nights, but now is a good time to sell high. He’s missed this line twice in his last two games. The Pacers’ offense is humming, but let’s see how easy it is to score against Rudy Gobert and the Timberwolves’ defense – who are top 10 in defense over the last five games.coming off a 50-point performance, so let the shots fly and the points roll in. 

Clippers +10.5 vs. Warriors 

Stephen Curry is atop many people’s MVP boards, but his play hasn’t been enough for the Warriors to get wins this season. 

Golden State is 5-5 in its last 10 games, while the Clippers are 7-3 and have won three straight games. The Clippers have the second-best defensive rating in the league, pushing its net rating to 0.6 despite having one of the worst offenses in the league. 

Even without Paul George and Kawhi Leonard, the Clippers have enough talent on their bench to keep this game competitive. Asking the Warriors to win by 10 points is too much for them – considering how bad their defense is. 

Back the underdog with the points and take the Clippers.
