- Player props are always a fun angle to bet and that's where PrizePicks comes in.
- Our analyst is targeting playing on Bam Adebayo and Jaylen Brown in Game 4.
- Tyler Schmidt breaks down his picks below.
Player props have become among the most popular bets in the industry, but while the amount of states with legalized gambling is growing, some may feel left out.
With PrizePicks, you get the opportunity to essentially parlay game 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 (31) 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
Bam Adebayo Over 27.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists
After losing home-court advantage, the Miami Heat got it right back with a win in Game 3. Miami was without Jimmy Butler for the second half after it went into halftime leading by 15 points. The Boston Celtics made a late comeback, but it was not good enough as the Heat won by six points.
Bam Adebayo had an atrocious first two games for the Heat, but bounced back in a huge way in Game 3 with 31 points, 10 rebounds and six assists. He obviously got over this prop with ease in that game, but failed quite a bit in his previous four games against the Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers.
An under of any Heat player is intriguing because I think the Celtics could run away with this game. The problem with a fade on Adebayo specifically, is most of the Heat players are questionable. Jimmy Butler, PJ Tucker, Tyler Herro and Kyle Lowry are questionable, which makes Adebayo the play.
Adebayo was super aggressive in Game 3 and I think there is a strong chance he can carry that over to Game 4. On DraftKings sportsbook, he is a -125 favorite to get over 27.5 points, rebounds and assists. I wouldn’t get cute with looking at Adebayo’s points, rebounds or assists individually — just take them all tonight.
Jaylen Brown Over 6.5 Rebounds
The Boston Celtics are 6.5-point favorites, which is the same way they were priced in Game 3. and they’ll be looking to bounce back with what feels like a must0win game. This series has yo-yo’d every game so far, so I would expect the Celtics to play well, especially if Jimmy Butler can’t play.
Jaylen Brown was a key contributor in Game 3 as he finished with 40 points — 10 more points than he’s had in any other playoff game this season. Brown shot 14-for-20 from the field and also had nine rebounds, which is our focus with this PrizePicks prop. This feels like fantastic value for Brown.
Brown has gotten eight or more rebounds in four-straight games and in eight of his past 11 playoff games. On DraftKings sportsbook, he is a -140 favorite to grab seven or more rebounds. Our Action Labs model has Brown projected for 7.5 rebounds and I would take this prop if it got up to seven.
During the playoffs, Brown is second on the Celtics, averaging 12.1 rebound chances per game. Over the past four games that number has jumped to 13.8 per game. The status of Robert Williams will also play a major factor on the glass. He is questionable after missing Game 3 due to knee soreness.
