Player props have become among the most popular bets in the industry. While the amount of states with legalized sports betting is growing, some may still feel left out.
With PrizePicks, you get the opportunity to essentially parlay player 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 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
Bobby Portis Over 10.0 Rebounds
Portis has gotten the start the last two games with Khris Middleton out, and he’s been very good. The Bucks are playing bigger against Chicago, and it’s working. Portis has recorded a double-double in both these starts back in front of his old home crowd in Chicago, and now he’ll start in Milwaukee where you can already hear the “Bob-by Bob-by” chants awaiting.
Portis was especially huge in Game 3, putting up 18 points and 16 boards along with four 3-pointers in a blowout win. He wasn’t quite as dominant in Game 4, but his 14/10 more than got the job done, and his minutes were partly deflated in both instances with the game well in hand.
Chicago can’t handle Milwaukee’s size and physicality, so expect plenty more of that from Portis and the Bucks. Look for another double-digit rebounding game, especially if the game stays close enough for him to see more minutes.
Nikola Jokic Under 13.5 Rebounds
Jokic has gotten a lot of slander as the Nuggets struggle to hold up against the Warriors, but his individual play has been pretty good. Even without much help around him, Joker has put up 31.3 points, 11.8 rebounds, and 5.3 assists per game. He’s scored 37 each of the last two games and kept the Nuggets in both games at home.
Now it’s back on the road, and though his scoring is up, Jokic’s rebounding is down. He had 18 rebounds in Game 3 but had 11 or fewer in the other three games. The Warriors are one of the best defensive rebounding teams in the league. And on the other end, frankly, Golden State just isn’t missing a ton of shots — and when they do, Jokic is often stranded on the perimeter away from the glass.
This is a steep line for anyone, even a soon-to-be two-time MVP. We can go under if the game gets away from Jokic and the Nuggets too, one way or another. This Denver season has been a nightmare, and it may finally be over.
