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.
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
Jayson Tatum Over 3.5 3s Made
Jayson Tatum has consistently hit the 3-point shot against the Milwaukee Bucks in his last six games against them. He has hit at least four 3-point shots in five of the last six games against the Bucks. His shot from distance has also been strong in the 2022 Playoffs as he has hit at least four 3-point shots in the last three games.
Not only is Tatum getting up close to eight 3-point attempts per game, but he is also shooting an efficient 42.5% from the 3-point line. Additionally, the Milwaukee Bucks are one of the worst teams in defending the 3-point line in the league and allowed the Celtics to get 50 3-point attempts in Game 1. Expect a better 3-point shooting night from the Celtics in Game 2.
Draymond Green Over 2.5 Blocks + Steals
There is no question that Draymond Green is the engine both on offense and defense for the Golden State Warriors. Over the course of the playoffs so far, Green has combined for at least three total blocks and steals in five of the six games. Additionally, despite getting ejected in game one against the Memphis Grizzlies, Green combined for four total blocks and steals in just 17 minutes of play.
The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 16 turnovers per game thus far this postseason. Further, Grizzlies opponents are averaging 8.4 steals and 6.2 blocks per game this postseason. Expect a motivated Draymond Green in Game 2 after being ejected to thrive with his defensive intensity.
