NBA Playoff Props for Friday, May 27
Prop betting expert Stuart Durst gives his top prop bets to consider for NBA Playoffs action on Friday, May 27. Check out his top play for the hardwood action below.
- Robert Williams (BOS) Over 1.5 Blocks + Celtics ML (-110) at DraftKings
Why sadly we can no longer get Robert Williams blocks at a reasonable number, I still love this spot. Williams has been extremely consistent on the defensive end this playoffs despite nagging injury concerns constantly leading to appearances on the injury report. Timelord has recorded 3, 2, 3, and 2 blocks in this series despite only playing 20 & 19 minutes in two of those games. He looked much better playing 28 minutes last game, and I expect a similar workload today. As long as the Williams can stay healthy in this game, he should be able to clear 2+ blocks once again.
Williams defensive presence has been great for the player props but even better for the Celtics championship hopes. This game feels a lot like yesterday’s Mavericks Warriors game, I rarely like to take a side on spreads but home field advantage has been so powerful this postseason, especially in close out games. A lot of this comes down to health, Lowry clearly isn’t 100% and looks like a detriment to his team at the the moment. Butler doesn’t have that same assertiveness he had early in the postseason, and with a nagging knee injury it makes sense he couldn’t carry the load forever. Tyler Herro’s status is also up in the air; but he’s been terrible on the road so far, he’ll need to play but I still don’t think it’s enough. Not convinced the Heat have enough firepower for this one, like -8 also.
