It was another perfect night of betting for Fantasy Alarm NBA Best Bets, three of three. This column has won the last eleven of twelve bets and we are on the look for winners today. It is also another milestone, or hurdle cleared in the quest for forty units. Thirty-two units is another twenty percent (eight units) towards our goal, and it is advised to withdraw your eight units. This still leaves us over our initial bankroll and removes the chance of blowing our profit. There are nine NBA games on the first Sunday without football since the beginning of September. Two of the games are nationally televised, NBATV has the Phoenix Suns at Washington Wizards beginning at 3:30 PM ET. ESPN has the Memphis Grizzlies at Boston Celtics at 6:00 PM Eastern. The bets for today do not come from these games though, and instead focus on some players that have been cashing for us recently. Bam Adebayo, Simone Fontecchio, and Nikola Jokic are playing consistently, and they are the three props to bet on today.




Bam Adebayo is averaging a double-double and this exact same rebounding line is one of the eleven that have recently cashed. He has eleven or more rebounds in four straight games and six of his last seven. The Miami Heat are hosting the Los Angeles Clippers who are one of the better teams in the league. The Clippers are also tough to get several rebounds against, they allow 49.9 per game, tied for fifth lowest in the league. However, in their last three games they have allowed 51.3, and allow an average of 51.0 on the road. They have two excellent forwards that can earn several rebounds when they play with maximum effort… but Paul George and Kawhi Leonard do not play every game with maximum effort. In addition to that the Clippers are still without their starting center Ivica Zubac forcing Mason Plumlee and Daniel Theis into several minutes of action. Neither one of those guys can ‘hold a candlestick’ next to Bam Adebayo, he is red hot. There will be tons of shots from the Clippers as well as teammates Terry Rozier and Tyler Herro, which would allow Bam to earn a few more offensive rebounds. The Clippers are average against centers, but Bam is not average and he should get his eleven rebounds to cover this prop.
