  • Will the Mavericks steal a win and extend their series against the Warriors tonight?
  • Our expert is targeting props on Luka Doncic and Draymond Green.
  • Brandon Anderson explains why below.

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.

Enter: PrizePicks.

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 Thursday’s Game 5 of the NBA’s Western Conference Finals.

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.

Luka Doncic Under 8 Assists

If you think the Mavs pull out another win and keep their series alive, then this may not be the play for you. But if you expect the Warriors to finish the job, get the win and head to the NBA Finals, then this is your play.

Luka Doncic has played in seven Mavs losses this postseason and he hasn't gone over eight assists in any of them. He's under that number in 5-of-7 and pushed the other two teams. In fact, he's only gone over eight assists three times in the playoffs.

It's not even necessarily Doncic's fault. Remember, assists take two players. Doncic is always going to get his, but he can't control whether his teammates hit the barrage of 3s they take every game.

When Dallas doesn't make its shots, the Mavs lose — and Doncic doesn't get his assists. He's averaging only 5.1 APG in Mavericks losses this postseason.

Draymond Green Under 6 Assists

Draymond Green is the heart and soul of the Warriors and certainly one of their most important players, but other Golden State players have made a big impact this series.

Kevon Looney has dominated the glass and filled up the box score and Andrew Wiggins has been a two-way star, defending Luka Doncic on one end and and giving him all he can handle at the other.

All of that has left Green's numbers a bit muted, even in victory. Green's rebounding and assist numbers are both down this series as he's averaging only 4.8 APG and hasn't gone over six assists in any game. He's gone under thrice and pushed this line once.

At 10.3 Potential Assists per game, this line is a bit too high. Green has yet to go over six assists in any of his five games against Dallas all season. Why start now?
