NBA Playoff Props for Wednesday, May 18

Prop betting expert Stuart Durst gives his top prop bets to consider for NBA Playoffs action on Wednesday, May 18. Check out his top play for the hardwood action below.

  • Luka Doncic (DAL) Over 7.5 1Q Points + Over 1.5 1Q Rebounds (-130) at DraftKings
  • Luka Doncic (DAL) Over 1.5 1Q Assists + Over 1.5 1Q Rebounds (-120) at DraftKings

Luka Doncic (DAL) Over 7.5 1Q Points + Over 1.5 1Q Rebounds (-130)

 Luka Doncic finished the regular season 2nd in first quarter scoring, and has stayed consistent throughout the playoffs. Luka played 12 minutes in every first quarter last series, scoring 8+ points in 6 of 7 games. One of the things that stuck out the most was his aggressive starts against the Warriors during the regular season. In those four games, Luka scored 19, 10, 13, and 9 points (even only playing the full 12 minutes in 2/4 games). As for rebounds, the Mavericks leading rebounder is averaging 4.2 1Q rebounds per game this postseason. He has 2+ rebounds in 10/10 playoff games this year, and 22 of his last 25 playoff games. 

Luka Doncic (DAL) Over 1.5 1Q Assists + Over 1.5 1Q Rebounds (-120)

Luka is now the highest usage player left in the playoffs, and we’ve seen him successfully cash these tickets throughout the playoffs. He has 2+ 1Q assists in 9/10 playoff games (9 straight) and continues to dime, even when he’s scoring well. Being surrounded by dependable 3-point scorers like DFS, Bullock, and Kleber gives him easy opportunities to rack up early assists. Luka is averaging 2.7 assists per game this playoffs, 2.6 during the regular season, and 3.0 in his playoff career, I expect that to continue today.
