NBA Playoff Props for Thursday, May 12

Prop betting expert Stuart Durst gives his top prop bets to consider for NBA Playoffs action on Thursday, May 12. Check out his top play for the hardwood action below.

  • Jimmy Butler (MIA) Over 0.5 3PM + PJ Tucker Over 0.5 3PM + Jimmy Butler (MIA) Over 0.5 Steals (+100) at DraftKings
  • Dorian Finney-Smith (DAL) Over 1.5 3PM + Over 3.5 Rebounds (-115) at DraftKings

Jimmy Butler (MIA) Over 0.5 3PM + PJ Tucker Over 0.5 3PM + Jimmy Butler (MIA) Over 0.5 Steals (+100)

Today we're gonna combine a couple of our favorite Player Props. Let's start with Jimmy Butler, AKA Mr. Consistent. Butler has 1+ 3PM in every playoff game this season, despite a terrible regular season 3-point shooting season. Butler is a big game player, and as the moment has gotten bigger and bigger, he's proven he has what it takes. I expect Butler to continue to get between 4-5 attempts per game, this remains my favorite leg of the day. As for his defense, he has 1+ steal in every playoff game this series, averaging 2+ on the postseason, with a 40+ minute workload, we have plenty of chances for a steal. As for Tucker, he has 1+ 3PM in 4/5 games this series, playing steady minutes despite some blowouts. Tucker shot 41% from beyond the arc during the regular season, and thats improved to 51.7% in the postseason. 

Dorian Finney-Smith (DAL) Over 1.5 3PM + Over 3.5 Rebounds (-115)

Finney-Smith has been one of my favorite targets all season long, and I'm expecting another healthy workload from one of the Mavericks unsung hero's. DFS has 2+ 3PM in 9 of 10 playoff games, with his one miss coming in a 20 minute game due to foul trouble. DFS has seen one of the highest workload's in all of the NBA this offseason, averaging 40 minutes per game, while shooting 41% from beyond the arc and averaging 5.5 rebounds. This play is fairly simple, Finney-Smith is working with one of the best shot creators basketball, and this Suns team would much rather die by the hands of Finney-Smith/Bullock then Luka Doncic. I currently have Finney-Smith projected for 41.5 minutes, 3.1 3PM, and 5.1 rebounds. Will continue to look for good spots to parlay 2+ 3PM with.
