NBA Player Prop Bets: November 9, 2023
Indiana Pacers vs. Milwaukee Bucks – 4:00 PM (PST)
Tyrese Haliburton Over 33.5 Points and Assists
Tyrese Haliburton aims to take the spotlight in a juicy meeting against a bottom-six defense. With the Pacers on a historic scoring rampage, leading the league with 126 points per game, and the Bucks with a struggling defense ranked 25th, Haliburton looks to capitalize on a Bucks team that is hemorrhaging buckets. Averaging 23 points and 12 assists, Haliburton is well-equipped to surpass the 33.5 points and assists line. He can shoot the lights out and find teammates with a timely pass. Besides Haliburton, six other Pacers are averaging double digits this season, offering him plenty of mouths to feed.
Giannis Antetokounmpo Under 11.5 Rebounds
Turning our attention to the Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo, we gander at his rebounding performance. Averaging nine rebounds per game this season and covering the 11.5 rebound line only twice, his trend suggests he may need to catch up to this mark. Despite both teams having defensive challenges and the probability of it raining threes in Gainbridge Fieldhouse, Antetokounmpo’s previous trends align with the under 11.5 rebounds prop bet.
Atlanta Hawks vs. Orlando Magic – 6:30 PM (PST)
Trae Young Over 9.5 Assists
In a neutral-site game in Mexico City, Trae Young leads the Hawks against the Magic. With Orlando missing key starters and playmakers, the Hawks’ have a clear advantage in the matchup. Young has exceeded this assist line in all but one matchup against the Magic last season. Young averages 10.4 assists this year and has cleared this line in five of his previous six games. This bet should be an automatic lock.
Dejounte Murray Over 1.5 Threes
Dejounte Murray has been on fire from beyond the arc, making six threes in his most recent game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Murray has hit this line of over 1.5 threes in his last four games. Facing off against the Magic, who are dealing with injuries to key players, the Hawks, with their healthier rotation, are poised for an explosive performance. Murray, alongside Young, is expected to lead the way, making the over 1.5 threes a compelling prop bet.
Jalen Suggs Over 2.5 Assists
With injuries to several Magic playmakers, Jalen Suggs will have an increased role in the game against the Hawks. Averaging over four assists in his rookie season and showcasing consistent playmaking in recent games, Suggs is well-positioned to surpass the 2.5 assists line. The extra floor time and added responsibility make this prop bet favorable for Suggs. He has hit the over on this line in his last four consecutive games. His over 1.5 steals + blocks line is also a very favorable bet.
Enjoy the slate on November 9th as the Hawks take on the Magic and the Pacers battle the Bucks, with player prop bets adding excitement to these NBA clashes.
