There are only four games on the NBA betting board this Saturday, but with some of the worst defensive teams in the league taking to the floor, there are still plenty of player props to like. 

Today I'm backing a trio of big men (including the red-hot Anthony Davis) as I look to make some money off the defensive shortcomings of the Spurs, Rockets, and Jazz.

Here are my best free NBA player prop bets for November 26.

The Brow goes to work

Lakers big man Anthony Davis has been on a tear since LeBron James hit the IL with a groin injury. King James returned to the floor last night, and while Davis took fewer shot attempts, his rebounding stayed at an elite level as he pulled down 15 boards in the Lakers' win over the Spurs.

The two sides will rematch today in San Antonio. With both teams playing at a fast tempo and sitting in the Bottom 10 of the league in field goal percentage, there should be plenty of missed shots and rebounding opportunities.

Davis has snagged at least 14 rebounds in six-straight games, averaging 17 rebounds per game over that span. I'm expecting the Brow to clean up on the glass again, so take the Over 12.5 on his rebounds.

Anthony Davis Prop: Over 12.5 rebounds (+107)

Deandre destruction

Has the shoe finally dropped for the Utah Jazz, who are 2-6 straight up and against the spread after a terrific (and shocking) start to their season? Utah has dropped three in a row since losing point guard Mike Conley to a leg injury and has surrendered more than 120 points in each contest. 

The Jazz have actually struggled defensively all season and rank 22nd in the NBA in defensive rating while allowing a league-high 57 ppg inside the paint. Trading away Rudy Gobert has helped with their spacing and ball movement but certainly hasn't helped with their ability to defend the rim, which could be exploited by the Suns tonight.

Center Deandre Ayton is coming off a season-high 28-point performance last night. While he's been under-utilized for Phoenix so far this season, head coach Monty Williams would be wise to feed him the ball tonight. 

Deandre Ayton Prop: Over 16.5 points (-117)

Serbian sniper

Oklahoma City head to Houston as a short 1.5-point fave after losing in overtime to Chicago last night. The Thunder have been competitive this season, and I can't help wondering how good they'd be with Chet Holmgren, who was taken second overall in the draft but will miss the entire season due to a lisfranc injury. 

However, they have another rail-thin, seven-foot, 20-year-old with a shooting touch in Aleksej Pokusevski. Pokusevski connected on just a single 3-pointer last night, but he scored 15 points and logged 32 minutes.

The Serbian had hit two treys in each of his previous five games, and now he gets to face off against a Rockets team that ranks 28th in the league in defensive rating. Houston has been particularly vulnerable on the perimeter lately, allowing opponents to sink 17 3-pointers per game at a 40.2% clip over the last three games.

Aleksej Pokusevski Prop: Over 1.5 3-pointers made (+125)
