Andre Iguodala Under 8.5 points (-120)

9 p.m. ET | TNT

Iguodala recorded 11 points in Game 1, but that could regress in Game 2. For starters, he made seven free throws in Game 1, which is over six more than his regular season average of 0.9. His usage rate of 14.6% in Game 1 also represented an increase of over 3% when compared to his regular season average of 11.5%. If either of those figures regress to the norm in Game 2, he could find himself at closer to his regular-season average of 6.0 points per game. He scored below 8.5 points in three straight games prior to Monday’s “outburst.”
