Our NBA player props went 1-1 our last time out on Tuesday. Trae Young easily stayed under his assists total, which was a nice win for us. Unfortunately, our play on Gabe Vincent didn't go as planned, as he left the game early because of back pain.
That injury ruined our prop on Vincent's points, rebounds, and assists total. That's how you know you've been running badly. Overall though, we're still 115-103 on the season. It's time to turn things around!
Ready for some more playoff basketball? Let's start the weekend off right with 2 PrizePicks NBA Props for Friday, April 14. Best of luck with your picks!
This number looks to be 2 to 3 points too low. Heck, even FanDuel and Unibet are pricing this at 23.5 instead of 22. DeRozan scored 23 points against Toronto in Wednesday's epic comeback victory for Chicago. We're expecting another big game from DeRozan on Friday evening against Miami.
Speaking of Miami, they have some defensive liabilities that DeRozan should be able to take advantage of. The Heat ranks just 24th in opponent shooting efficiency and just 20th at defending three-pointers. That should equate to plenty of open shots for DeRozan.
The 33-year-old averaged 24.5 points per game during the regular season and 25 points per game during road contests. DeRozan played in 74 games and went over this point total in 42 of them. All of those trends point to a big night for the former USC Trojan.
We also like DeRozan's recent history against the Heat. He's scored 23 points or more in 5 of his last 6 against Miami. It may seem square, but we're taking the Over!
Here's another total that looks too low. Adebayo averaged 20.4 points per game this year and 19.9 points during home games. Those both point to an Over, as does the fact that Bam went over this total in 41 of his 75 games this season.
The matchup is kind of tricky. We do think Nikola Vucevic could limit Adebayo's productivity somewhat down low. That being said, Adebayo scored 23 against Chicago on March 18th and 27 against them on December 20th.
The Bulls are good in some defensive metrics, but they rank 17th in effective field goal percentage allowed. We're hoping that equates to some easy buckets for the 25-year-old from Kentucky.
