Blazers SG Rodney Hood
The Pick: Over 0.5 assists (+100)
One assist. One assist! That’s all we need to cash a winning ticket with Hood tonight. He has handed out at least one assist in nine of 14 playoff games this season, including both games vs. the Golden State Warriors. He also averaged 1.3 assists in 24.4 minutes per game during the regular season as a member of the Blazers, and he’s currently projected for 23.5 minutes in our NBA Models.
I’m willing to take a shot on this prop at even money considering it’s a low bar to clear. It stops looking like a value around -115.
Blazers C Enes Kanter
The Pick: Under 10.5 rebounds (-140)
Kanter is undoubtedly one of the best rebounders in the league. He averaged 14.5 rebounds per 36 minutes this season, and his rebound rate of 21.1% ranked sixth in the league.
That said, this series vs. the Warriors doesn’t set up well for Kanter’s skill set. As a result, his playing time has waned. He logged just 19 minutes in their last game, despite the fact that he wasn’t dealing with foul trouble.
Seth Curry and Rodney Hood have both played well during the postseason, and both figure to continue to eat into his playing time.
This prop is already juiced up pretty high, but it still has a Bet Quality of 10 in the Player Prop tool. I’d play the under up to -150.
