With the NBA's holiday week in full swing, expect some exciting individual performances from some of the league's most talented players!
When the Utah Jazz and Cleveland Cavaliers face off, Jarrett Allen's presence in the paint will be under the microscope. Alperen Sengun will be looking to earn another double-double when he leads his Houston Rockets against the San Antonio Spurs. And Joel Embiid projects to have a big night on the glass when the Philadelphia 76ers take on the Toronto Raptors.
Let's check out the bets!
A key member of the Cleveland Cavaliers' offense and defense, Jarrett Allen looks to build on what was a strong rebounding night in his last game. At DraftKings Sportsbook, Allen is a +105 to clear 10.5 rebounds when he takes on the Utah Jazz.
On the season, Allen is averaging 13.7 points, 10.3 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks in 33.4 minutes per game over 24 matches. Over his seven games back from injury though, Allen has averaged 14.1 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks in 36.8 minutes per game.
Allen has cleared 10.5 rebounds in 13 of his 24 appearances for the Cavaliers this season. The Jazz are a decent rebounding team, but they are 29th in the league in offensive rebounds allowed (12.3 per game). Off the back of a 15-rebound effort in his last game, Allen should be productive against a Jazz team that lacks a true center.

The Houston Rockets may not be competing for much this season, but they've found a positive in the growth of Turkish big man Alperen Sengun. At Caesars Sportsbook, Sengun is a +178 to post a double-double when he faces the San Antonio Spurs.
On the season, Sengun is posting averages of 14.2 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 2.1 assists on 53.3% shooting from the field in 26 games. Over his recent five-game run though, Sengun is averaging just 11.2 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 1.8 assists on 44.8% shooting from the field. He hasn't been consistent as of late, but he can build off of a positive performance against the Spurs last time out.
In his last game against the Spurs, a loss, Sengun posted 16 points, 11 rebounds, and 2 assists in 28 minutes of play. As one of the few Rockets willing to crash the glass, Sengun should be productive. But he'll have to navigate the ever-impressive Jakob Poeltl - who wasn't available for San Antonio in their last meeting.
Sixers big man Joel Embiid is having one of the most productive scoring seasons of his career, and he'll have another great opportunity to perform against the Raptors in this matchup. At PointsBet, Embiid is a +105 to clear 10.5 rebounds when he takes on the Toronto Raptors.
On the season, Embiid is averaging 33.3 points, 9.9 rebounds, and 4.7 assists on 53.5% shooting from the field and 33.8% from three-point range. He's been brilliant over his last five games though, posting averages of 39.0 points, 10.2 rebounds, and 3.4 assists in 36.4 minutes of play.
Embiid's rebounding numbers are down this season, but he'll have a unique opportunity against Toronto. The Raptors are lacking key big man Precious Achiuwa, and have been outrebounded by an average of 10.0 through five of their last six games.
