- There are a couple of Game 3 matchups in the NBA Playoffs tonight and Munaf Manji has found a couple of worthy PrizePicks plays.
- He's targeting both Jaylen Brown and Nikola Jokic to have big games tonight.
- Continue reading for his PrizePicks plays and analysis.
A pair of Game 3s tip off on Friday night in the NBA Playoffs. The Philadelphia 76ers look to defend home court and take a 2-1 series lead against the Boston Celtics. Later in the night, the Phoenix Suns have a tall hill to climb as they are down 0-2 in their series with the Denver Nuggets and will be without their All-Star point guard Chris Paul. Below are a couple of PrizePicks I love for tonight’s games.
A quick refresher if you aren’t familiar with PrizePicks: you can combine up to five different player squares to payout up to 10x your entry.
You can do a Flex Play or a Power Play. A Flex Play gives you lesser odds, but you can win money if you do not nail every pick. A Power Play is all-or-nothing.
Here’s how I would approach today’s slate in NBA Playoffs.
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 squares in which you parlay two or more plays together.
Jaylen Brown More Than 2.5 3-Pointers
Game 3 between the Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers takes place in the City of Brotherly Love. Jaylen Brown has been on fire from beyond the arc. In fact, Brown is shooting 55.7% from the field and 53.5% from 3 during the postseason.
However, over the past five games, Brown is shooting 65.5% from beyond the 3-point line. Additionally, Brown has made at least three 3-pointers in five straight playoff games for the Celtics. In the first two games of this series, Brown went a combined 6-of-10 from 3. Furthermore, Brown has been efficient deep as he’s averaging 5.8 attempts per game and making 53.5% of them. During the regular season, Brown shot 8.6% better on the road (38.1%) than at home (29.5%) from 3. I am going to bank on Brown’s hot shooting to continue in Game 3 against the Sixers.
Nikola Jokic More Than 13.5 Rebounds
The Phoenix Suns will look to defend their home court and get their first win of the series. However, Nikola Jokic has been dominating, especially on the glass. In the first two games of this series, Jokic has grabbed a total of 35 rebounds and has topped this projection in both games.
In the two games Jokic played in the regular season against the Phoenix Suns, he grabbed 18 and 15 rebounds, respectively. During the regular season, the Phoenix Suns allowed opposing centers to average 15.7 rebounds per game. Further, Jokic does a fantastic job getting offensive rebounds. In fact, Jokic is averaging close to five offensive rebounds per game over his past five games and is averaging 5.5 offensive rebounds in the first two games of this series. I expect Jokic to continue dominating the glass and surpass this projection for the third time in as many games.
