Best NBA Player Prop Bets for Friday, December 17: Continue To Fade Allen, Take Advantage Of the Wolves' Situation


Dec 17, 2021

Plenty to choose from on Friday night as eight games will hit the hardwood in the NBA. Along with it, we have a pair of player props we believe are best to be backing among the action. Let’s look at who we are taking in tonight’s matchups.

Check out the prop projections given to you at SportsGrid for more prop bet possibilities in addition to this pair of players we believe should come out on top tonight.

Although Minnesota Timberwolves guard D’Angelo Russell is averaging nearly three points lower than this total so far this year, he has a big opportunity ahead of himself to clear this number. The team’s budding star and second-leading scorer Anthony Edwards entered COVID protocols on Friday and will be out for the team’s matchup with the Los Angeles Lakers. Edwards’ absence will open up a few extra scoring opportunities for Russell out of the backcourt. That’s 22.1 points per game to make up for, and with a proven scorer like Russell on the court, he’s likely going to be the primary beneficiary for the time being. Back the All-Star to beat this number in this one.
