5 Thursday NBA Prop Bets: Fats picks Terance Mann, Blake Griffin, Jrue Holiday, Paul George, Royce O'Neale
1-3 yesterday in another playoff shellacking. These blowouts are tough on bettors because players don't play their usual minutes.
Thursday Playoff Picks
Two games, five plays. Gotta say that the player lines on the Bucks vs. Nets are really unappetizing. The props seem to high on the number and too low on the odds so I'm only making two risk-reward plays.
All wagers and returns based on $10. Please check game time lineups before wagering.
Nets at BUCKS 7:35 pm EDT, Clippers at JAZZ 10:05 pm.
3-pointers: Terance Mann (Clippers) Over 0.5 threes +350 (returns $45.00) The lines are so bad I'm taking this high-risk flier. It's not like Mann can't shoot threes (he shot over 40% from deep on the season), the sole question is whether he'll play enough to take threes.
Blake Griffin (Nets) double-double +334 (returns $43.40) If Griffin stays out of foul trouble and this game isn't a massacre, he should get enough minutes to be right around the needed numbers.
Jrue Holiday (Bucks) double-double +335 (returns $43.50) Let's put it this way: If Holiday doesn't get a double-double, I don't think the Bucks can win.
2-pointers: Paul George (Clippers) Over 4.5 assists +105 (returns $20.50) George followed up a 10-assist game with a 2. Let's meet in the middle, shall we.
Free throws: Royce O'Neale (Jazz) Over 7.5 points -109 (returns $19.20) O'Neale squeaked by this number last game and didn't shoot particularly well.
2-pointers: Chris Paul (Suns) double-double +150 (returns $25.00) Paul's shoulder sure looked good in this game as he went for 17 points and 15 assists (0 TOs) in 30 minutes.
2-pointers: Monte Morris (Nuggets) Over 4.5 assists +105 (returns $23.00) Morris had 3 assists in 22 minutes.
Cameron Payne (Suns) Over 9.5 points +100 (returns $20.00) Payne scored 7 in the 123-98 blowout.
Steals: Jae Crowder (Suns) Over 11.5 points -113 (returns $18.90) Crowder was terrific (4-5 from the field, 3-4 from three) but only scored 11 in 25 minutes.
