NBA Playoffs Player Props for Tuesday, May 3

Prop betting expert Stuart Durst gives his top prop bets to consider for NBA Playoffs action on Tuesday, May 3. Check out his top play for the hardwood action below.

  • Draymond Green (GSW) Over 2.5 Steals/Blocks (-120) at BetMGM
  • Pat Connaughton (MIL) Over 1.5 3PM/Jaylen Brown (BOS) Over 0.5 Steals (+120) at DraftKings
  • Grayson Allen (MIL) Over 1.5 3PM/Brook Lopez (MIL) Over 0.5 Blocks (-125) at DraftKings

Draymond Green (GSW) Over 2.5 Steals/Blocks

While the Warriors did end up with an impressive victory in Game 1, their defensive anchor Draymond Green missed the second half due to ejection. Despite only playing 17 minutes, he recorded three steals and a block. Looking back in Round 1, he had 3+ steals/blocks in 4/5 games, and when they started him at the five in the final game, he recorded four. With Draymond starting at center, he should continue to see 36+ minutes in close games, and have plenty of oppurtunies. Grizzlies led the league in shots blocked this year, and with their offensive star preferring to finish around the rim, Draymond will likely have his hands full tonight. I'm going to rely on one of the best defensive players in the NBA to keep things going tonight. 

Pat Connaughton (MIL) Over 1.5 3PM/Jaylen Brown (BOS) Over 0.5 Steals

I'm not sure why this number is so low, but I'm going to continue to ride with both bench snipers (Grayson Allen & Pat Connaughton). With Middleton out, more defensive attention is gonna be focused on Giannis, creating more outside shots for the Bucks role players. If they want to continue to succeed, then these bench shooters need to continue to knock down shots when given the chance. Pat averaged 2.2 3PM on 6.2 3PA in Round 1, and went 2/4 from beyond the arc in Game 1. Jaylen Brown has 1+ steal in every playoff game thus far, recorded two steals in Game 1, and has 2+ steals in 4/5 games. I'm expecting another 40+ minute workload, and plenty of chances for Brown.

Grayson Allen (MIL) Over 1.5 3PM/Brook Lopez (MIL) Over 0.5 Blocks

Last article we easily won Jaylen Brown STL/Brook Lopez block, while that is now juiced to -155, I'll be running that back also. Lopez block has been a great piece and continues to be one of my favorites today. In Game 1, he had three blocks in 28 minutes, in their Round 1 series, he had 1+ BLK in 5/5 games, averaging 1.6. Grayson Allen saw a concerning amount of Marcus Smart last game, but should continue to see high volume. Despite the tough matchup, Allen went 3-6 in Game 1, scoring 11 points in 28 minutes of action. Allen has seen 25+ minutes in 4fourstraight games, and in those games he has 3+ 3PM in 4/4. Without Middleton he is one of the biggest beneficiaries available, and I expect him to continue to be a key bench scorer in this series.
