It's a great time of the sports year with many different sports going off at one time and the importance of some of these events is at a high level. Another thing at a high level is the possibility of cashing in on some NBA Betting Props as players will be going hard, knowing that any team can get eliminated. See who we like as our betting picks.
The playoffs bets are a bit different as there are only 2 games being played tonight.
Will Pal Gasol Get A Double-Double?
Gasol's point output has dropped off a bit, but I thought that the NBA odds on this prop were reasonable considering that Gasol has attained a double-double in each of his last 5 games. I will take it a step further. Gasol has had a double double in 8 out of his last 10 games with the two games being 9 rebounds apiece. I have little faith in Milwaukee's defense. Yes is the play.
NBA Pick- Yes -225
Total Points for Michael Carter-Williams
Over 13.5 -125
Under 13.5 -105
Carter-Williams, who is the reigning NBA Rookie of the Year, has gotten to be very inconsistent. He also has less offensive opportunity than he had when he was a member of the Philadelphia 76'ers. This is a player that can do many things well and doesn't focus on one particular facet of his game.
He's playing a very tough team in the Bulls in a very poor matchup for the Bucks. In his last game, he came up with 9 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists. I'm expecting more of the same. If garbage time occurs, he'll be sitting because this is the playoffs. The under is the play until MCW proves otherwise.
NBA Pick- Under 13.5 -105
Total Points For Jimmy Butler
Over 20 -125
Under 20 -105
We always hear about all of the big stars in this league, but one player that flies under the radar is Jimmy Butler. Butler is a player that can get the Bulls 20 points per game in his young career and have to actually compete for the basketball on his own team, which is full of stars.
In his last 2 games, Butler has eclipsed the 20 point mark and the last game being very important. I see no reason why this trend doesn't continue. Butler is in a great spot here against an inferior team which can't guard him. Over is the obvious play.
NBA Pick- Over 20 -125
Total Points For Anthony Davis
Over 26.5 -135
Under 26.5 +105
Anthony Davis knows that in order for his team to beat the best team in the NBA in the Golden State Warriors, he has to score a lot of points
While the Warriors dominate at the guard position, Brow dominates on the inside and that's where he's going to hurt the Warriors. He's coming off of a monster 35 point performance. I absolutely love the over. 26.5 points. It might be a lot against any other team and during the regular season, but this is a different situation. It's the perfect NBA pick.
NBA Pick- Over 26.5 -135
Total Points For Stephen Curry
Over 25.5 -125
Under 25.5 -105
Most people seem to think that Curry is the MVP of the league. Being on the best team in the NBA helps his cause and having the best outside shot in the games is also a help. It's been noted that Curry hit 57 consecutive 3-pointers in practice. I would love to see someone attempt to break that feat. Curry has great handles as he almost broke CP3's ankles in the regular season and the guy is simply a big-time talent.
While all of this is true, I'm not sure that he's the MVP of the NBA, but the Pelicans will need to stick to him and Klay Thompson like glue or this series will be over in the blink of an eye. I don't need to look at what Curry has done previously. If the game is important, he'll go over the 25.5 points. Expect an over for this prop.
