- Chris Raybon breaks down his favorite NBA player props for Friday night.
- Props include point totals for Celtics SG Jaylen Brown and Blazers PF Al-Farouq Aminu.
After the never-ending saga of Joel Embiid’s availability ended up with him missing his first game of this postseason and left us with only the under on Paul Millsap’s points prop, Millsap went out and knocked in his first five field goals and finished with 14 points — 0.5 (or one basket, depending on what you got the line at) too high for the under to hit.
Those always hurt, but from a process perspective, I’ll live with a player I’m betting under 13.5 points on taking only seven shots in a road loss any day, as the law of averages says he’ll miss more than two more often than not.
Hopefully you’re following me in the Action Network App and were able to jump on the under on Millsap’s rebound prop as well, which I got on after noticing his rebound chances in Games 1-2 were well below his season average despite playing more minutes.
The two props highlighted below are from the following two games Friday night:
- Boston Celtics at Indiana Pacers: 8:30 p.m. ET on ABC
- Portland Trail Blazers at Oklahoma City Thunder: 9:30 p.m. ET on ESPN
