Here’s a look at our favorite prop bets for today’s NBA Playoff games.
Jimmy Butler 20+ / Miami ML (+125)
Jimmy Butler is and will be the key to Miami’s playoff run. Despite Lowry’s absence, I believe Miami will take game 4 and finish this series in 5 games. They’re clearly the better team and won convincingly the first two games and were up by 14 points at the end of the third quarter. Jimmy had 21, 45, and 20 in the first three games, but after the last one said he needs to be more aggressive and I expect him to be. Hawks are 21st in points allowed, 24th in FG% allowed and suddenly Butler is hitting 3’s against them, and they’re 25th in 3PT% allowed. Also, the Heat are doing a great job of guarding Trae Young. Yes, he exploded in the 4th quarter in G3 to deliver the win, but he had 11 disappointing quarters before that. Miami remains one of the most underestimated teams and the league and I see them in the ECF and won’t be surprised if they win the West. I’m not sure how the number one seed can be a dark horse.
Jae Crowder OVER 9.5 POINTS (-122)
This one may look strange. Crowder is in an incredible shooting slump and is 0/14 from 3. But this won’t continue forever, he is having the minutes and the good looks, so he just needs to step up and knock them down. Pelicans are 23th in FG% and 3PT allowed and 26th in 3PT% allowed. He even hit it in the last game, despite 0/5 3PTM, and without Booker, the Suns will need someone other than Ayton and CP3 to contribute. Crowder has the most experience of all the other guys and I believe his struggles will end tonight.
