E’Twaun Moore Over 11.5 Points (-114)
3:30 p.m. ET | ABC
Since playing 26 scoreless minutes against the Warriors back on Oct. 20, 2017, Moore has gone for 16, 27, 15, 15, 14, and 13 points against them. He’s attempted 11 or more field goals in each of his three playoff games against Golden State, which is more attempts than he had in any game against Portland in the first round. Moore’s success against the Warriors — as well as his improved play overall — has seemingly begun to earn him more playing time, as he’s played over 35 minutes in each of the past two games after averaging 27.0 over his first five playoff games. He was also a better scorer at home during the regular season, averaging 13.4 points in 31.9 minutes compared to 11.5 in 31.2 on the road.
Derrick Favors Under 5 Rebounds (-114)
8 p.m. ET | TNT
Utah’s Round 2 matchup hasn’t been kind to Favors, who is out of place as a more traditional power forward against a Rockets team that demands quick floor-spacers. Lineups featuring Favors and Rudy Gobert have an ugly -47.0 Net Rating in 30 minutes this series, and Favors’ minutes have been cut as a result, with him playing 25:35 in Game 1, 20:54 in Game 2, and 13:14 in Game 3 before leaving in the third quarter with an ankle injury. He hasn’t topped three rebounds in a game yet in this series; especially with a balky ankle, the odds are stacked against him again.
Eric Gordon Under 15.5 Points (-114)
8 p.m. ET | TNT
Gordon (pictured above) went off for 25 points on 8-of-13 shooting in Game 3, but it’s usually unwise to bet on a shooter to have two huge games in a row on the road. Gordon’s shooting percentage dropped from 44.2% at home to 41.2% on the road during the regular season, and he’s struggled at times in this series as well, averaging 11.0 points per game in Games 1-2 and topping the 15.5-point mark only in Game 3.
All lines accurate as of 1:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, May 6.
