NBA Playoff Props for Monday, May 23

Prop betting expert Stuart Durst gives his top prop bets to consider for NBA Playoffs action on Monday, May 23. Check out his top play for the hardwood action below.

  • Jayson Tatum (BOS) Over 27.5 Points (-110) at FanDuel

Jayson Tatum (BOS) Over 27.5 Points (-110)

I would recommend not making to many bets until we get more clarity on the injury report, while it seems like Jimmy Butler will play, the status of guys like Robert Williams, Kyle Lowry, and even Marcus Smart are still up in the air at the moment. These teams will strategically release injury news, which almost never works out best for us sports bettors. Boston really backed themselves into a wall last game, not taking advantage of Jimmy Butler going down and losing that game.

If there is one thing that I do think we can count on, its Jayson Tatum. Last game, Tatum only scored 10 points taking a backseat to Jaylen Brown. Tatum has scored under 25 points in 4 playoff games so far, and proceeded to follow-up each one of those performances with a 28+ point outing. Tatum is averaging 40+ minutes, 8+ 3PA, and 19+ FGA over the course of the postseason and I expect that volume to continue to todays must win game.

I'm expecting a somewhat similar performance to what we saw from Luka Doncic last night. I'm not sure whether or not Boston wins this game, but just like Dallas did, I expect Boston to construct a gameplan centered around their star playing being aggressive early and often. Tatum has had a great postseason so far, I have him scoring 30+ points tonight.
