NBA Player Props Saturday May 21, 2022

Game 3: Heat vs. Celtics, 8:30PM ET

PICK: Marcus Smart 3+ threes (+120)

Smart was immense in the Celtics' Game 2 triumph, doing literally everything with a damn near triple double that went along with five balls from behind the arc. While Smart is unlikely to have a night that good again, he has been consistently getting volume off from range since the Bucks series. In his last seven games, the PG has averaged close to 6.5 shots per game from deep. With a game like his last, expect him to be giving the authority to keep shooting.

DimersBOT Projection: 3 threes

 

PICK: Jimmy Butler OVER 5.5 assists (+124)

Butler hasn't hit this mark in his last four games, but it's not through lack of trying. While it's been his scoring that has made most of the headlines this postseason, Butler is still trying to get his teammates involved, particularly in this series so far where he leads the team in potential assists with 10.2 per game, according to NBA stats. Unfortunately some of the lack of output from his main guys in Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro have let him down, but if they can make the adjustments, Butler is in line for a plus money cash.

DimersBOT Projection: 6 assists

 

PICK: Jayson Tatum OVER 28.5 points (-110)

Only a blowout in Game 2 prevented Tatum from hitting this mark and our BOT isn't backing down that Tatum can clock up the points early in Game 3. The Celtics star has been the clear and obvious scoring threat all postseason and should be around the mark again.

DimersBOT Projection: 35 points
