NBA Playoff Props for Thursday, May 19

Prop betting expert Stuart Durst gives his top prop bets to consider for NBA Playoffs action on Thursday, May 19. Check out his top play for the hardwood action below.

  • Robert Williams (BOS) Over 1.5 Blocks (-145) at Caesars
  • Robert Williams (BOS) Over 1.5 1Q Points + Over 1.5 1Q Rebounds (+105) at DraftKings

Robert Williams (BOS) Over 1.5 Blocks (-145)

I actually can't believe we are getting this price right now. Last game Williams was one pace to play 34+ minutes before sitting out the final stretch of the game. While this worried some fans, It was reported that Timelord was dealing with some unrelated cramps, not re-injuring the knee was good news. Williams finished third in the regular season in blocks, only behind JJJ and Gobert. Williams averaged 2.2 blocks per game in the regular season, and has 2+ in 4/4 playoff games thus far. He grabbed 2 in the first half of last game, and I'm expecting him to cruise over this number once again.

Robert Williams (BOS) Over 1.5 1Q Points + Over 1.5 1Q Rebounds (+105)

Robert Williams 2+ 1Q Points/Rebounds +105 DKDidn't expect this to be a Timelord propaganda article, but here we are anyway! Williams has recorded 2+ 1Q points in 4/4 playoff games this year, averaging just over 8 minutes per first quarter. He's never going to be the highest volume shooter in the world, but with Tatum, Brown, and Smart drawing defensive attention, he should be put in a position to score easy buckets. Timelord also has 3+ 1Q rebounds in 3/4 playoff games thus far, but I went with the safer 2+ option. He had 8 points and 3 rebounds in game 1, I expect the center to continue to play a pivotal role on this Celtics team. He may not be the most consistent player with all the injury stuff, but at + money I like my chances here.
