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 slate.
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 props in which you parlay two or more plays together.
Jarrett Allen Over 9.5 Rebounds
It was a tough scene in Game 3 for the Cavaliers, whose 79-point output is the lowest of any team in the playoffs this year.
Put that game in the rear-view mirror, especially with Jarrett Allen only recording five rebounds despite playing 37 minutes. He had 13 rebound chances, but the ball didn’t bounce his way. Look for a bounce-back game from the Cavaliers and Allen on the glass.
In the first two games of this series, Allen recorded 14 and 10 rebounds and averaged 12.5 rebounds per game against the Knicks during the regular season. Both the Cavaliers and Knicks are shooting under 44% from the field through the first three games, which will increase the rebounding opportunities.
The betting lines are juiced to the over for Allen, which means we’re getting great value on PrizePicks.
Draymond Green Over 14.5 Rebounds + Assists
After being ejected in Game 2 and suspended for Game 3, expect Draymond Green to come out with pent-up energy playing in front of the Warriors home crowd. An excellent Green game is getting involved on the glass and dropping dimes to Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. He recorded 20 combined rebounds and assists in Game 1.
The Warriors have an implied team total of 122.5 points, which makes sense since the Kings allowed opponents to shoot 49.2% from the field during the regular season.
Green averaged a team-high 6.8 assists and 7.2 rebounds per game this season. Capturing 15 rebounds and assists may seem like a high total, but this series is leading all first-round matchups with a 103.67 pace. Expect Green to be active all over the court tonight.
