Player props have become among the most popular bets in the industry, but while the amount of states with legalized gambling is growing, some may feel left out.
With PrizePicks, you get the opportunity to essentially parlay game prop over/unders with cash payouts depending on how many you get correct on that day’s slate.
You can do a Flex Play or a Power Play. A Flex Play gives you lesser odds, but you can win money even if you don’t nail every pick. Meanwhile, a Power Play is similar to a parlay — it’s 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.
NBA PrizePicks Parlay
James Harden Under 2.5 3-Pointers Made
James Harden is coming off his best scoring postseason game in quite some time. Prior to Game 4, the last time Harden scored 30 or more points came all the way back on June 1st, 2021 against the Boston Celtics, when he scored 31. However, Harden has struggled from the 3-point line as well during the postseason.
Harden has made three or more 3-point shots twice over the last 12 games. Thus far in the postseason, Harden has hit three or more 3-pointers just twice in the 10 games. Expect the Heat defense to suffocate Harden on offense in this game and limit his 3-point shooting. Lastly, Harden is only shooting 30.7% from 3-point territory in this series.
Devin Booker Over 13.5 First-Half Points
Take Devin Booker to score more than 13.5 points in the first half in Game 5. He is one of the best first-quarter scorers in the NBA, and he’s proven that in the playoffs thus far as well.
Booker in the first quarter alone is averaging 11.5 points per game, and the Suns have made it a priority to get their All-Star shooting guard involved early and often. Further, in the first half, Booker is averaging 16.5 points per game in the postseason in home games. Expect the Suns to come out and shoot the ball well behind a strong half from Booker.
