NBA Playoff Props for Sunday, May 29

Prop betting expert Stuart Durst gives his top prop bets to consider for NBA Playoffs action on Sunday, May 29. Check out his top play for the hardwood action below.

  • PJ Tucker (MIA) Over 0.5 3PM + Over 0.5 Steals (+130) at DraftKings

PJ Tucker (MIA) Over 0.5 3PM + Over 0.5 Steals (+130)

Tucker has been a pivotal role player throughout his whole career, and that's stayed true this postseason. Tucker is another player who benefits from playing with that Miami home crown behind him. PJ has 1+ 3PM in 8 of 9 home playoff games this season, averaging 1.6 on 62% shooting. These playoffs have been absolutely ravaged by blowouts, but all we’re asking for here is 1 3PM. Despite the how volume, he has 1+ 3PM in 5 of 6 games this series. I expect Tucker to get the job done in the most important game of the season.

I always say Tucker is paid to do 3 things, play aggressive defense, hustle for rebounds, and take corner three’s. His defensive presence has been huge throughout the playoffs, and will definitely be needed in game 7. Tucker is averaging 1.3 steals per game this series, with 1+ in 5 of 6 games. With a 30+ minute workload likely, I’m expecting Tucker to have plenty of opportunities to cash this ticket, with 2, 1, 1, and 3 over his last 4 games, I’m expecting a very similar outcome today. We chased this with his 1Q rebounds last game, and if that becomes available again then I’ll surely be adding that back.
