There are two NBA playoff games on Thursday night, and there is plenty of value in the games in terms of player props. Let’s take a look at the best player props to make your Thursday night a winning one.
LeBron James under 31.5 points (-121)
The Los Angeles Lakers have their backs against the wall and LeBron James is going to have a big game, but his total points is too high. Each of the last three games, LeBron James has scored 25 points or less, each of the last three games, and LeBron is going to finish right around that number in this one. Back LeBron to finish with under 31.5 points.
DeAndre Ayton over 27.5 points, rebounds, and assists (-108)
DeAndre Ayton struggled to score in the last game, but he has been a key part of this series, and he is going to find success in this game. Two games ago, Ayton finished with 14 points and 17 rebounds, Ayton is going to get his scoring up in this game, and will finish over this total,
Damian Lillard to record a double-double (+125)
Damian Lillard has had a strong series and he is going to finish with a double-double in this game. In each of Lillard’s last two games he has finished with a double-double. Portland has their backs against the wall and Lillard is going to have a big game. Look for Lillard to finish with enough points and assists for the double-double to cash.
Damian Lillard over 4.5 three-pointers made (-152)
Damian Lillard is coming off a game where he had 12 made three-pointers and in four of the five games of this series, Lillard has made at least five three-pointers. I don’t love the odds of this play, but the Denver Nuggets don’t have anyone to slow down Lillard. Look for Lillard to finish with at least five three-pointers made.
