Prop betting expert Stuart Durst gives his top prop bets to consider for NBA Playoffs action on Friday, June 10. Check out his top play for the hardwood action below.
Steph Curry (GSW) Over 0.5 Rebounds 1Q + Jaylen Brown (BOS) Over 0.5 Rebounds 1Q + Marcus Smart (BOS) Over 0.5 Assists 1Q -130 at BetMGM
Kevon Looney (GSW) Over 1.5 Points 1Q + Steph Curry (GSW) Over 0.5 Steals (-125) at BetMGM
Steph Curry (GSW) Over 0.5 Rebounds 1Q + Jaylen Brown (BOS) Over 0.5 Rebounds 1Q + Marcus Smart (BOS) Over 0.5 Assists 1Q -130
Smart has 1+ 1Q assist in 11 straight games, and 16 of 17 total playoff games so far. While he had some injury concerns limiting his minutes, he was still able to cash this number playing only around 7-8 minutes. With additional time to be healthy, I expect him to play much closer to his normal 10-12 minute workload. In game 1, he played 9 minutes and recorded an assist despite Jayson Tatum recording 3 early assists in 6 minutes. After that, he’s recorded 2 1Q assists these last two games, very surprised this number is still playable. Timelord back in the lineup should also create additional opportunities, especially considering he may not make it out of the first quarter.
Jaylen Brown 1+ 1Q rebound has been another dependable play. Brown is averaging 1.5 1Q rebounds in his playoff career, and 1.7 this postseason (averaging 10 minutes). Brown is 3/3 against Golden State so far this season. He has 1+ in 18 of 21 playoff games, after not recording a 1Q rebound in his first two games he’s been extremely consistent since then. Curry let people down due to foul trouble, making this a perfect bounceback spot. 1+ rebound was -1200 last game, and is now down to -650. He’s gonna continue to play the full first quarter, great bounceback spot.
Kevon Looney (GSW) Over 1.5 Points 1Q + Steph Curry (GSW) Over 0.5 Steals (-125)
Kevon Looney 1st quarter points is one of my favorite parlay pieces for today's slate. Despite missing the points in game 1, Looney has bounced back scoring 6 and 4 points these last two games (3 FGA each time). Looney practically only takes high percentage shots, created by playing with the likes of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Andrew Wiggins, this means it's very unlikely he does not convert on the opportunities he’s presented with. Stephen Curry steal has been another super consistent parlay piece so far. Curry has 8 steals in the first 3 games of this series, and this prop should probably be much closer to -500. Even with foul trouble, I expect Curry to be able to once again grab a steal today.
