Player props have become among the most popular bets in the industry. While the amount of states with legalized sports betting is growing, some may still feel left out.
With PrizePicks, you get the opportunity to essentially parlay player prop over/unders with cash payouts depending on how many you get correct on that day’s slate.
You can do a Flex Play or a Power Play. A Flex Play gives you lesser odds, but you can win money even if you don’t nail every pick. Meanwhile, a Power Play is similar to a parlay — it’s all or nothing.
Here’s how I would approach today’s slate in NBA Playoffs slate.
What is PrizePicks? A daily fantasy operator — meaning they’re available in more states (30) than sports betting is! — PrizePicks offers a unique opportunity for action on player props in which you parlay two or more plays together.
NBA PrizePicks Parlay
Jayson Tatum Over 5.5 Assists
After going 2-for-2 yesterday in our PrizePicks props, we look to keep the momentum going tonight.
The Boston Celtics look to do the same as they have a chance to sweep the Brooklyn Nets on the road. They enter as one-point road underdogs, but this game has the highest total on the slate at 220 points.
It’s crazy to think the Nets are the only team that has yet to win a playoff game this season when they have Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving leading the team. The Celtics have just been that good in this series and all season long.
Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown have been the two key pieces in the Celtics’ domination thus far. The Celtics, as a team, have won 29 of their last 35 games, including the three playoff games against the Nets. Tatum has averaged 29.7 points and eight assists while playing 43.7 minutes per game in this series.
DraftKings has this line at -140 for Tatum to reach over 5.5 assists tonight. He has hit the over in eight of his last nine games and is also averaging a potential 12.3 assists per game in this series.
This line is way too low on PrizePicks, but I would take it even if this line got up to six assists tonight.
Tobias Harris Over 7.5 Rebounds
The Toronto Raptors held off the sweep in Game 4, but this series shifts back to Philadelphia for Game 5 as the 76ers can close out the Raptors on their home floor.
They’re seven-point favorites, as the Raptors will be without Fred VanVleet. This game has the lowest total on the slate at 210 points.
Joel Embiid is the main concern on the 76ers’ side. He will have to have right thumb surgery after the season, and it seems to already be affecting his game right now. Embiid posted only eight rebounds last game, which was the first time he failed to pull down double-digit rebounds in 15 games. He’s hurting.
With Embiid injured, now is the time for Tobias Harris to step up. He certainly has, as he’s averaging 18 points and 9.8 rebounds per game while shooting 57.6% from the field and 54.6% from behind the arc. Harris has had double-digit rebounds in each of his last three games, which is why this is a great prop.
Harris has also had 17 rebounding chances in this series, compared to only 12 chances per game during the regular season. With Embiid’s injury, he may be relying on others to pull down rebounds.
James Harden is a great rebounding point guard, but his series high is only six rebounds. DraftKings has the line set at -155 for Harris to pull down over 7.5 rebounds tonight.
