NBA Playoffs Player Props for Sunday, May 8
Prop betting expert Stuart Durst gives his top prop bets to consider for NBA Playoffs action on Sunday, May 8. Check out his top play for the hardwood action below.
- Maxi Kleber (DAL) Over 8.5 Points (-125) at DraftKings
- Jimmy Butler (MIA) Over 0.5 3PM + Dorian Finney-Smith (DAL) Over 1.5 3PM (-105) at DraftKings
Maxi Kleber (DAL) Over 8.5 Points (-125)
While I have been betting his 3PM a decent amount during the playoffs, I like his points in this spot tonight. So far this series he’s over 8.5 in 3/3 games scoring - 14, 9, 19 points thus far. Another brightspot has been minutes, he’s seen an increase in minutes every game this series, playing 25, 28, and 33 minutes. Dwight Powell hasn't cleared 20 minutes this series, and the Mavs will likely continue with alot of these small ball lineups. Kleber is averaging 11.5 points in the playoffs, and I think this number is just a bit low.
Jimmy Butler (MIA) Over 0.5 3PM + Dorian Finney-Smith (DAL) Over 1.5 3PM (-105)
These have been two of my favorite props throughout the playoffs, why not combine them. Despite not being historically known for his three point shooting, he’s a clutch player, and has continued to rise to the occasion during the playoffs. Butler has 1+ 3PM in every game this playoffs, and has 4,3, and 5 attempts this series. DFS has been Mr. Consistent. Smith has 2+ 3PM in 8 of 9 playoff games so far, with his one miss coming in a 20 minute outing (foul trouble). In every other game, he’s played 40+ minutes, and with that monster workload I expect him to continue to produce.
