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
Kyrie Irving Over 3.0 3-Pointers
Over his final 13 regular season games, Irving attempted 10.2 3-pointers per game and made 4.7 of them, hitting 46% of his treys. He went over this line in nine of those 13 games, safely hitting this 69% of the time.
That streak extended to Game 1 against the Celtics, when Irving went 6-of-10 on 3s as part of a monster 39-point game, hitting what appeared to be a game-winning shot before Jayson Tatum stole the game at the buzzer. Irving can get to his shot at any time, even against a tough defense like Boston’s.
Even better that this is listed at 3.0, so we can push if he makes exactly three and still keep the rest of our bet alive.
Fred VanVleet Over 3.5 3-Pointers
Someone has to shoot for Toronto, and the Raptors are running low on options these days. It looks like Scottie Barnes and Gary Trent Jr. will be limited or out again, and that should mean heavy minutes and volume for Toronto’s three remaining stars with the Raptors’ backs against the wall.
Pascal Siakam and OG Anunoby will score too, but Fred VanVleet is the best 3-point shooter of the trio, and he’s the guy running the offense, the one with the ball in his hands all game. VanVleet fired away 16 times from behind the arc in Game 2. He only made five of them, an ugly 31%, but percentage barely matters at PrizePicks, just volume.
This is simply a volume play. VanVleet is going to get a ton of shots up, and if he gets anything close to 16 attempts in Game 3, he’ll have a very strong chance of hitting at least and going over this number again, just like he has in each of the first two games of the series.
