4 NBA Player Prop Bets for Wednesday, May 1

The lone undecided first-round playoff contest in the Western Conference highlights Wednesday’s NBA Playoff action. The other contest slated for tonight is a game-clinching opportunity for top-seed Boston at home versus Miami.

With just two matchups on tap tonight, which players should bettors watch in the NBA Playoff action taking place Wednesday? We’ll cover that and more with our four best player prop bets for tonight’s games.

Live player props data coming soon for Bam Adebayo.

Miami Heat’s Bam Adebayo UNDER 11.5 Rebounds

Miami finds itself in a 1-3 hole against Boston, and that hole looks more like a canyon without Jimmy Butler available for another playoff contest. The Heat have relied on veteran Bam Adebayo and fifth-year player Tyler Herro to lead the team in his absence as both players have led the team in scoring over the series’ first four games.

Adebayo has been as dominant for the Heat as anyone, recording 20 points in all four games. But the 6’ 9” center has been hit or miss on the glass with outputs ranging from six to 17 rebounds.

The center has flirted with the over on this player prop bet twice, but the Celtics have figured out how to keep Adebayo at bay. Expect him to miss this player prop bet yet again.

Kyrie IrvingOver 2.5 Threes

Dallas Mavericks’ Kyrie Irving UNDER 3.5 3-Point Field Goals

Dallas returns to Los Angeles on Wednesday as the Mavericks and Clippers are knotted up at two wins apiece. In their wins, Dallas has held Los Angeles’ scoring in check and limited the Clippers to 93 points or less. In their losses, Los Angeles has poured in at least 109 points each game.

This series has been a coin flip as to which team will win their games. That same percentage (50%) nearly describes guard Kyrie Irving’s shooting from behind the three-point line as the 6’ 2” athlete has hit 16-of-33 percent of his long-range attempts.

Expect him to continue his torrid pace tonight but fall just short of the milestone needed to cover this player prop bet.

Live player props data coming soon for Al Horford.

Boston Celtics’ Al Horford OVER 9.5 Points

Although Boston won their third game in the series earlier this week, the team lost the services of center Kristaps Porzingis as the 7’ 2” athlete injured a calf muscle and is expected to miss several playoff games for Boston. Prior to the injury, Prozingis was averaging 20.1 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 2.0 assists for the Celtics in the postseason.

Boston will call upon experienced center Al Horford in his place. The 6’ 9” center is a 17-year veteran with plenty of playoff experience having played in 171 career postseason contests.

While Horford should not be expected to pour in as many points as Porzingis, expect the back-up center to score at least 10 points to cover this player prop bet.

Live player props data coming soon for Paul George.

Los Angeles Clippers’ Paul George UNDER 35.5 Pts + Reb + Ast

One reason the Clippers won their last matchup against Dallas was the elevated play of Paul George. The 6’ 8” forward had a series-best 33 points, eight assists, and five rebounds to prod his team toward a 116-111 victory Sunday in Dallas.

Outside of that contest, however, George has been average. The 14-year veteran has underperformed his season totals and is averaging 32-combined points (21.0), rebounds (5.2), and assists (3.5) for this series.

Therefore, bettors should expect George to continue underperforming and take the under on this player comb prop bet.
