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 Player Props
Jrue Holiday Over 5 Rebounds
Jrue Holiday is having a fantastic postseason thus far for the Milwaukee Bucks, especially since they lost Khris Middleton to an injury. Holiday has contributed in every aspect of the game for the Bucks and has five or more rebounds in five of the six games so far this series.
In Round 1 against the Bulls, Holiday had five or more rebounds in every game and overall he’s averaging six rebounds per game in the postseason. I do not expect anything less from Holiday in a crucial Game 6.
Jayson Tatum Over 28.5 Points
The Celtics have their backs against the wall here as it’s win or go home. If the Celtics want to force a Game 7 they will have to rely on their star player, Jayson Tatum. In this year’s playoffs Tatum has scored 29 or more points in six of the nine games.
Further, in the Celtics six wins he has scored 29 or more five times. There is no question Tatum will play heavy minutes and get plenty of shot attempts. I am expecting him to put on an offensive display in Game 6 against the Bucks.
