We can put both (of) before nouns and pronouns.
Before a noun with a determiner (for example: the, my, these), both and both of are both possible.
Both (of) my parents like riding. She s eaten both (of) the chops. We can also use both without a determiner.
She's eaten both chops. (= ... both of the chops.) Only both of is possible before a personal pronoun (us, you, them).
Both of them can come tomorrow. We can put both after object pronouns.
