Bucks @ Heat


PLAYER: Jrue Holiday

BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ OVER 18.5 points with DraftKings Sportsbook (+100)

Holiday was more of a playmaker for the Bucks in Game 2 against the Heat, registering 15 assists and recording only 11 points, but usually he is pretty dependable when it comes to scoring. Overall he has hit 20 points or more in seven of his last nine games. He's well and truly capable to shoulder the load if the Heat target Giannis and he is great value for the Over at even money. Our projections have him down for 20.

This may not be an offer you can use on props but it's still absolutely unmissable! Sign up with DraftKings Sportsbook today, then place a $5 bet on any team at the moneyline. If they win, you'll get $200 in free bets!


Suns @ Lakers


PLAYER: DeAndre Ayton

BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ OVER 14.5 points with PointsBet (-118)

It's a remarkably tiny points total line for Ayton given his production against the Lakers in the first two games of this series and we're diving in. The Phoenix C may very well be having one of those breakout moments that so many young players have in the playoffs with games of 21 and 22 points on some highly efficient shooting to boot. This one could cash early.

Nuggets @ Blazers


PLAYER: Jusuf Nurkic

BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ OVER 11.5 rebounds BetMGM  (-114)

While the big stars have been producing so far through the opening two games of this series, the points total lines set by the sportsbooks for Game 3 for the likes of Lillard and Jokic are far too high for us to bet them with any degree of confidence. So we're pivoting to the big Nurk and his rebound total.

To best use this pick, you can't go wrong when signing up to BetMGM where new customers you can cash in even if your bet doesn't win! In the final regular season game against the Nuggets and the two playoff games so far, Nurkic has recording 13, 12 and 13 rebounds respectively. Our data has him down for another 13.

Simply deposit $20 into your account, place your bet, and then wait for the money to come in, regardless of the result! It's free money.
