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.

NBA PrizePicks Parlay
Jaylen Brown Over 6 rebounds
Brown had a slow start in Game 1 but came alive in the fourth quarter as the Celtics made a late push. He finished with 24 points and 10 rebounds, a fine line for a player who was invisible for stretches of the game.
The 10 rebounds caught my attention, and I’m expecting another big rebounding night with Al Horford likely out. Brown has stepped up his game as a rebounder in recent Boston playoff runs. Over the last three years, he’s averaging 6.2 RPG during the regular season but 7.2 RPG in the playoffs. That’s partly just Brown playing more minutes and partly him stepping up his game to fill what’s needed.
Boston needs rebounding help against a tough Miami team, and Brown is now averaging 7.5 RPG over his last 24 playoff games, and he’s had at least eight boards in over half of those games. Expect another night with heavy minutes and plenty of rebounding opportunities. I’ll take the over.
Jaylen Brown Over 2.5 3-Pointers
Let’s stick with Jaylen Brown for a second over tonight and ride his shooting too. Boston needs help in another area too — scoring. Jayson Tatum has his hands full with P.J. Tucker and Jimmy Butler in his grill, so the Celtics need Brown to step up as a secondary scorer.
Against Miami, Brown has seen his scoring load go up, and he’s getting a lot more 3s up than usual because of the Heat defensive scheme. Over his past eight games against the Heat, Brown is attempting 8.0 treys per game and hitting 3.6 of them. That includes at least three 3s in seven of those eight games, including all four this year.
The volume is up, so let’s double up on Brown and ride him to victory.
