NBA Playoffs Player Props for Saturday, May 7

Prop betting expert Stuart Durst gives his top prop bets to consider for NBA Playoffs action on Saturday, May 7. Check out his top play for the hardwood action below.

  • Jaylen Brown (BOS) Over 1.5 Steals (+114) at Fanduel
  • Jaylen Brown (BOS) Over 0.5 Steals + Brooke Lopez Over 0.5 Blocks + Giannis Antetokounmpo Over 0.5 Blocks (+105) at DraftKings

Jaylen Brown (BOS) Over 1.5 Steals (+114)

With Jimmy Butler cashing this yesterday, these defensive props have been good to us, let's keep that going today. Brown has been very reliable for me in this category during the postseason, with 2+ steals in 3/4 games and 1+ steal in every game of round 1. While the Bucks don't turn the ball over quite as often as the Nets, Brown has started the series well, with 2+ steals in both games. Despite losing minutes to blowouts in both games, he still played 38 minutes in each, he's gonna have every opportunity to cash this ticket. Brown is averaging over 2 STLPG so far this postseason and I expect that to continue tonight, especially love getting it at + money.

Brook Lopez is historically known as a great rim protector and shotblocker. With the Celtics running various lineups including Robert/Grant Williams, Al Horford, and Daniel Thies, Lopez will continue to get plenty of opportunities to block points in the paint. Lopez only played 13 regular season games, but still averaged 1.2 blocks in 22.9 minutes. So far in the playoffs he's averaging 29.4 minutes and 2.0 blocks, with 1+ in 7/7 games. Lopez is poorly priced here, he should be able to record a block as long as he can record 20+ minutes. Speaking of Bucks rim protection, I also like Giannis' block here. He has 1+ Block in 6/7 playoff games and 2/2 this series, averaging 1.4 in the postseason. He isn't the former 2x DPOY of the year for nothing.
