- Jimmy Butler 20+ Points (-500)
- Bam Adebayo 3+ Assists (-235)
- Nikola Jokic 11+ Rebounds (-340)
Jimmy Butler 20+ Points (-500)
If the Miami Heat have hopes to win tonight in Denver and return home for Game 6, they'll need Jimmy to deliver a standout performance. So far, Butler has averaged 21.8 points per game and scored 20+ points in three consecutive games.
The volume and usage will be there for Butler. In the Game-4 postgame press conference, Nuggets coach Michael Malone confirmed that he would keep Nuggets defenders glued to Heat shooters on the arc to limit Miami's 3-point attempts. Consequently, Butler will continue to have more room to drive to the rim with less help from extra defenders.
Sportsbooks have set Butler’s points prop line at 27.5 points, and with him likely playing 40+ minutes, this points milestone should be safe enough to cash.
Bam Adebayo (MIA) 3+ Assists (-235)
In the NBA Finals, Bam Adebayo has averaged 3.8 assists per game (on 7.5 potential assists per game) with at least three assists in all four games. He has been a critical player for Miami, leading the team with 59.0 passes made, and he likes to facilitate via dribble handoffs or high-low passes.
In Game 4, Adebayo played 44 minutes, and when he plays for 40 minutes or more, he has recorded three or more assists in 21 out of 23 games this season, which is a 92% success rate.
After a sloppy seven-turnover game in Miami, expect better efficiency from Adebayo in Denver tonight. He plays a key role in guarding Nikola Jokic and also serving as an offensive hub with his playmaking and scoring ability, and he should play heavy minutes once again tonight as he drops at least three dimes.
Nikola Jokic Over 10.5 Rebounds (-340)
During the playoffs, the Joker has been an excellent rebounder for the Nuggets. Against the Heat, he has averaged 13.5 rebounds per game on 21.5 chances and has exceeded this prop in three out of four games.
Jokic's rebounding splits in Ball Arena have also been favorable. He is averaging 14.7 rebounds per game at home, compared to his 11.8-rebound average on the road in the NBA Playoffs. In Game 4, he battled foul trouble and still played 37 minutes (a series-low) while grabbing 12 boards.
The sportsbooks have set the rebound prop line for Jokic at 12.5, with the over being favored. The Joker will likely play for 40+ minutes tonight, and based on his past performance, he has a strong chance of getting 11 or more rebounds. He has achieved this in 10 out of 12 games, good for an 83% success rate.
