🧨 BEST PROP
PLAYER: Michael Porter Jr
BET: 🔥 OVER 24.5 points with PointsBet (-105)
We bombed out taking MPJ on Under 7.5 rebounds in Game 1, so we're focusing on his points production in Game 2. After pouring in 25 points in the series opener, we've got the Nuggets forward going for 26 tonight. He has a knack for starting fast and burning out, but with the series potentially slipping away with a defeat in Game 2, Porter Jr will need a complete performance.
💥 BETMGM'S ONE GAME PARLAY
We're combining some of our above plays with a total and a prop play to complete our One Game Parlay. While we're expecting a high scoring game with the likes of CJ and Dame Lillard, our model projections has Nikola Jokic scoring only 28 points. Jokic only had 1 assist in Game 1, so look for him to focus more on dishing dimes than scoring buckets.
🔥 Nuggets ML
🔥 Total points OVER 226.5
🔥 Porter Jr o24.5 points
🔥 Jokic u30.5 points
💰 +1082 with BetMGM
