Don’t Miss Out! Bank on These Beal and Middleton Props

The NBA playoffs have been highly entertaining and fruitful for us. We successfully navigated the Play-In Tournament last week and continued that success last night with another 2-1 day– a testament to our insightful analysis.

To this point, the favorites have succeeded, with just one outright upset. The Clippers have been the lone underdog to win. The Cavaliers took care of business over the Orlando Magic and took a 2-0 series lead. Our lone loss came when Donovan Mitchell failed to score more than 26 points after he finished with 19 in the first half!

Best NBA Player Props Today

 

1. Suns SG Bradley Beal Over 1½ Made Threes

I was going right back to a three-point prop after we went 2-0 on these to kick off the week. We’re sipping the juice on this three-point prop tonight! I’m heading to the streets of Minnesota with our first player prop tonight. Bradley Beal had a frustrating start to his career with the Suns, dealing with different throughout the season. He’s been healthy down the stretch and has been a key piece for Phoenix as expected. Phoenix traded for Beal and put together this dynamic trio alongside Devin Booker and Kevin Durant for games like tonight.

Beal shot 1 for 3 from beyond the arc in Game 1, but I expect him to knock down at least two in tonight’s game. He has made at least two threes in 13 of his last 23 healthy games (56.5%) and seven of his last 11 to close out the regular season, including going 6-for-6 from downtown in the final matchup on the road against Minnesota. The Timberwolves boast one of the best defenses in the NBA, but they are clearly making it a point to slow down Booker. Over their last three matchups, they have thrown the kitchen sink at Booker, holding him to 13, 23, and 18 points. As a result, Beal will be tasked with firing more attempts—Bank on Beal.

 

 

2. Bucks SF Khris Middleton Over 20½ Points

I will continue to buy low on Khris Middleton until the oddsmakers give him some respect. Middleton is another veteran who has dealt with injuries all season long. He’s finally healthy and scored 23 points in 35 minutes in the Game 1 victory over Indiana. Middleton has played 25 or more minutes in five games this season without Giannis Antetokounmpo and scored more than 20 points in four of them. Middleton exceeded this line in three of five meetings with Indiana this season, where he played at least 29 minutes, with all those playing alongside Giannis.

The Bucks have not ruled out Antetokounmpo, but they have listed him as doubtful, and I don’t expect him to be available tonight. The Pacers allowed the fourth-most points per game to opposing small forwards. Indiana owns the worst defense left in the playoffs and finished the season with the seventh-worst overall defensive rating. The Bucks should take care of business at home again tonight and take a commanding 2-0 series lead behind their veterans, led by Middleton and Lillard.

 

 

3. Clippers G Norman Powell Over Point Total

The sportsbook has not posted player prop betting lines for Norman Powell yet, but I expect this number to be around 13-14½. I will be taking the over when the odds are released. If we get a 1½ threes betting line, I would also consider that. The Clippers could be without Kawhi Leonard again tonight and are eager to go up 2-0 on the Mavericks. Powell was a strong candidate for Sixth Man of the Year but was not named among the three top finalists for the award. He played 30 minutes in Game 1 and finished with just five points on 2-of-6 from the field.

I expect the Mavericks to come out with more intensity tonight, and the Clippers will need Powell’s scoring off the bench. Except for Game 1, Powell has scored at least 15 points in six consecutive games against Dallas, in which he played at least 25 minutes. The Mavericks have a significant weakness in defending corner threes. They allowed the fourth-most corner threes made per game. Powell buried the most corner threes this season for the Clippers and shot a ridiculous 70 of 128 from here–good for a 54.7% clip! Count on Powell to pour it in tonight.
