- The Mavs are desperate for a win in Game 4, so we're eyeing two Dallas players on PrizePicks.
- Will Luka Doncic and Jalen Brunson go over their respective totals mentioned below?
- Munaf Manji breaks it all down before the Western Conference Finals continue.
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 Tuesday’s Game 4 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.
NBA PrizePicks Parlay
Luka Doncic 1H Over 16.5 Points
Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals tip-off on Tuesday, and it’s do-or-die time for the Mavericks. The Warriors have a commanding 3-0 lead and are one win away from returning to the NBA Finals.
Dallas has one consistent scorer, and it’s not secret that it’s been Doncic. Luka has back-to-back games of 40 or more points, and he’s been setting the tone early for the Mavs. In fact, Luka is No. 1 in first-half scoring in the postseason, averaging 18.2 points.
Luka is doing it at an efficient rate, too. Luka is shooting 47% from the floor in the first half and close to 36% from the 3-point line.
There’s no secret that Doncic leads the Mavericks in usage rate, and if the Mavericks want a fighting chance in this series, it’ll be on the back of him. I expect Luka to come out aggressive in the first half and get over this projection of 16.5 points.
Jalen Brunson Over 4 Rebounds
One area the Mavericks have struggled in is rebounding. However, Brunson has been a consistent rebounder in the postseason.
In fact, in the three games in the Western Conference Finals, Brunson has grabbed at least four rebounds in each of the matchups. Furthermore, he’s grabbed at least five in two out of the three games vs. the Warriors.
Since the start of the Western Conference semis against the Phoenix Suns, Brunson has grabbed at least four or more rebounds in eight out of 10 games.
Lastly, Jason Kidd said after Game 3 that the Mavericks need to do a better job rebounding the basketball, and I expect them to succeed in that area moving forward. I will take Brunson here to get over this total in Game 4.
