Another night of NBA action is coming up and Bovada once again has valuable prop betting picks tonight. I have found 3 more from their wealth of NBA Odds to release to you absolutely free of charge.
Tristan Thompson O/U 3 Made FTs
The evolution of Tristan Thompson is happening before our eyes in these playoffs. He is turning from an inconsistent and passive power forward to a dominating rebounder and defender. His presence in the paint has been huge for the Cavs in the playoffs. However tonight Bovada has an interesting prop regarding his made free throws. Thompson’s free throw accuracy has been all over the map this postseason. After shooting 64% during the regular season, Thompson shot well above that against the Bulls at 82%, but is now down to hitting only seven of his last 19 free throws in this series for 37%. He was 0-3 from the line in Game 4, an assuming nothing has changed from two nights ago, the under seems like a fair play tonight. Even though Thompson is one of the better offensive rebounders left in the playoffs, he doesn’t seem to shoot the ball much after offensive rebounding. Plus, I don’t think the Hawks are going to be behind enough tonight where they have to hack Thompson. Take the under.
My NBA Pick: UNDER 3 made free throws (-115)
Jeff Teague O/U 18.5 Points
We easily cashed the over with Jeff Teague’s points two nights ago when he went for 30. Bovada still has his over/under for points tonight sitting at 18 ½. However, the juice for the over is up to -130 NBA odds. Even still, with the health of Al Horford and DeMarre Carroll in question, Teague has to step up and be the volume shooter the Hawks are looking for. With Kyrie Irving potentially out again tonight, Teague is going to have to take over. He was not efficient in the Hawks’ Game 3 loss going 9-23, but he still got to the line nine times and made all nine of his free throws. If he can continue to get to the line and shoot the ball adequately from the three-point line, 19 points or more should once again be a worthy wager tonight.
My NBA Pick: OVER 18 ½ points (-130)
DeMarre Carroll O/U 19.5 Points, Rebounds and Assists
At first glance this number seems really low, but looking at Carroll’s stats throughout this series, and the combination of his knee injury and guarding Lebron James has taken its toll. He did score ten points in Game 3 of this series, but he only shot 4-12 for the game. He has shot only two free throws in this series, and overall he is shooting 32% in his last three games. Combine that with the fact that his rebounding and passing have seemingly dried up, and you have a recipe for the under tonight with this wager. After averaging 17 points per game and nearly seven rebounds per game in the first two series, Carroll is down to seven points and two rebounds per game. With Bovada providing a price of +100 for the under, it seems like the best NBA pick to try and win a prop, in what could be the last night of the Eastern Conference Finals.
My NBA Pick: UNDER 19.5 points, rebounds and assists (+100)
