Monday Playoff Picks
One game, 5 plays. Just a quick look at the Over/Under, which sits at 214. The points in this series have gone 234, 207, 198, 164. So tonight's O/U is 50 POINTS higher than the previous game's total and based on the trend, tonight's final should be something like 72-69.
I'm staying miles away from an O/U pick because the Under is so logical it's scary and the payoff isn't enough. The problem is that if this low-scoring trend continues it's hard to pick props – unless you pick only rebounds – because there are no points. Oh, first world problems.
All wagers and returns based on $10. Please check game time lineups before wagering.
Clippers at SUNS, 9:05 pm EDT.
3-pointers: Devin Booker (Suns) double-double +800 (returns $90.00) I'm going all in on Booker tonight because I just think he's going to go off. The double-double is difficult for him, but at +800, why not.
2-pointers: Chris Paul (Suns) double-double +110 (returns $21.00) Having never been to an NBA Finals, I think Paul will do whatever he needs to do to get the Suns over the hump.
Paul George (Clippers) Over 9.5 rebounds +105 (returns $20.50) Some brick-fest insurance if the Suns are too amped up.
Deandre Ayton (Suns) Over 11.5 rebounds +100 (returns $20.00) Some brick-fest insurance if the Clippers are too worn down.
Devin Booker (Suns) Over 37.5 points, rebounds, assists +100 (returns $20.00) As I said up top, I think Booker is going to have a big game.
Free throws: None
3-pointers: Khris Middleton (Bucks) double-double +350 (returns $45.00) Middleton was BIG, going for 38 points, 11 boards and 7 assists.
2-pointers: Brook Lopez (Bucks) Over 1.5 made threes +155 (returns $25.50) Hard to make 2 threes when you only shoot one – and miss it.
John Collins (Hawks) Over 9.5 rebounds +100 (returns $20.00) Collins finished with 8 boards in 23 minutes. probably would have made the number if not for foul trouble. Alas, foul trouble counts.
