Saturday's NBA Playoffs slate gives us 4 games to enjoy! The 76ers will look to sweep away the Nets in the 1 PM Eastern tip on TNT. The Clippers will host the Suns, hoping to evening up that series at 3:30 Eastern, also on TNT.
The Heat will host the Bucks at 7:30 Eastern in a pivotal Game 3 matchup in that series. The late nightcap at 10 Eastern will feature the Grizzlies and Lakers. Both of these night games can be seen on ESPN.
Here are 3 NBA Props for Saturday, April 22, to make things even more exciting. Good luck this weekend!
Reaves grabbed 5 rebounds in Game 2, which makes us think that this number is at least half a rebound too low. The 24-year-old rebounds the ball pretty well for a 6-5 shooting guard.
Caesars is currently pricing the Over at -151, which is a strong indicator that there's value on putting this play in a PrizePicks parlay. BetMGM is also pretty close behind with a number of -150.
Reaves has also gone over this total in 3 of his last 4 ball games. With current form and some market support on our side, we'll pull the trigger on this Over.
FanDuel, Pointsbet, and Unibet are all pricing this at 14.5 instead of 15.5 at the time of this writing. Russell has stayed under this point total in 4 of his last 6 outings, which makes us think the Under is the best way to go.
This is also a tough matchup for Russell. The Grizzlies have a stingy defense, as they rank 3rd in the league in opponent shooting efficiency. We saw this come to fruition in Game 2 when Russell was held to only 5 points on a 2 for 11 shooting performance.
Finally, this is a pivotal Game 3 matchup in Los Angeles. Russell is a solid scorer, but we expect LeBron James and Anthony Davis to take the majority of shots for the Lakers in this one. Russell may get into double figures, but we don't see him scoring 16 or more. Play the Under!
Vincent doesn't get a ton of playing time, as he only averaged 25.9 minutes per game during the regular season. He stayed under this rebounding number in Game 1 and Game 2 against Milwaukee.
Even when Vincent is on the floor, it's tough to rebound against the Bucks. Milwaukee leads the league in rebounds per game, which tells us that the 6-3 point guard shouldn't get too many opportunities to crash the boards.
As for market support, there is a fair amount of that in our favor as well. Three prominent sportsbooks in the US have the Under juiced at -147 or higher. Let's follow their lead!
