We continue with NBA action for Friday, January 26 as we prepare the Cavaliers vs Bucks Player Prop Bets. The Cleveland Cavaliers travel to Wisconsin to take on the Milwaukee Bucks in the second game of a back-to-back set. The Bucks won the first duel and are hoping for a third victory over the divisional rival this season.

Cavaliers vs Bucks Player Prop Bets – Jarrett Allen Over 11.5 Rebounds (-114)

For the third season in his career, Jarrett Allen averages a double-double per game. He helped me to win the best last time out as he produced 12 boards against the Bucks. Tonight, we need him to grab another 12 rebounds, and given how he’s playing of late, I am confident Allen will deliver.

In ten of the previous 13 games, Allen had 12+ rebounds, including three H2Hs against Milwaukee. Now when Evan Mobley is out with a knee injury, Allen is a top rebounder on the Cavs. He averages 10.3 rpg for the year, but these numbers are improving for the reasons mentioned above.

Allen registered a double-double in 13 consecutive games, and I don’t think that streak will end on Friday. After all, he proved he could do it against Milwaukee. Jarrett had 3+ offensive boards in 12 of those 13 showings. The Bucks allowed 14.2 rpg to the opposing centers this year.

Damian Lillard Under 6.5 Assists (-135)

Damian Lillard is the best assist-maker on the Bucks with 6.8 apg this season. However, those are the lowest assist numbers for him in six seasons, and in this one, he struggled in that segment against the Cavaliers.

Namely, in three H2Hs against Cleveland, Lillard failed to record more than five dishes. In total, he collected only 13 over those three outings. The biggest reason for it is Cleveland’s sturdy defense. The Cavs have the third-strongest D in the NBA, allowing 110.1 ppg. They also have the second-best defense against assists, allowing 24.1 apg.

When it comes to defense against point guards, Cleveland allows the league-lowest 7.5 apg to the opposing PGs. Now, the bettors who love betting against trends can try with over 6.5 dimes here. I am not one of them, though, I usually follow the facts and numbers.

Hopefully, the Cavaliers vs Bucks Player Prop Bets will help you to make a solid profit. For more NBA prop picks, feel free to check out the Thunder vs Pelicans Player Prop Bets.
