4 NBA Player Props for Monday, May 6

Monday is a great day for NBA fans! The East Semis between the Pacers & Knicks tips off and the West Semis between the T'Wolves & Nuggs continues!

The Knicks host Indiana at MSG for what is bound to become a back-and-forth Game 1, while Denver tries to tie the series up at home behind Jamal Murray’s shooting. Check out our NBA player props for May 6 below! Good luck, folks!

Tyrese HaliburtonOver 3.5 Threes
Tyrese HaliburtonUnder 3.5 Threes

G Tyrese Haliburton (IND) UNDER 2.5 Made Threes

Shooting sub-30% from beyond the arc in Round 1, the Pacers don’t need Tyrese to shoot the 3-ball in order for them to have a chance to snag Game 1 at MSG.

In 8 career matchups against New York, Hali has hit this prop mark just once, while failing to reach the 20 FGA mark in each of those games.

Expect more of a Siakam and Turner night in Game 1 as Hali finds his footing in a much different series than what we saw against the Bucks. Let's play the Under!

T.J. McConnellOver 4.5 Assists
T.J. McConnellUnder 5.5 Assists

G T.J. McConnell (IND) OVER 3.5 Assists

Carslile’s most trusted asset this series might be the consistency of T.J. McConnell. A proven playmaker, T.J. averaged 4.5 AST on 18 MPG in Round 1, picking apart the Milwaukee defense.

In 13 games played as a Pacer against the Knicks, the former Wildcat averaged 6.2 APG including hitting this mark in four of their last five matchups.

Aaron GordonOver 10.5 Rebounds/Assists
Aaron GordonUnder 10.5 Rebounds/Assists

F Aaron Gordon (DEN) UNDER 10.5 Rebounds & Assists

With Naz Reid, Rudy Gobert, KAT, and McDaniels applying pressure to Gordon on both ends of the floor, we expect this series to be an uphill battle for another former Wildcat.

AG has averaged just 9.2 PPG and 10.2 REB+AST in 5 total games against the Wolves this season. In a much different look than the Lakers series, expect Gordon to struggle once again in Game 2 after a -23 outing in an upset loss a few nights ago.

Jamal MurrayOver 1.5 Threes
Jamal MurrayUnder 1.5 Threes

G Jamal Murray (DEN) OVER 2.5 Made Threes

One Nuggets player we are expecting to take his play up a notch is none other than Jamal Murray. After a few late buckets against the Lakers to close the series out, Murray struggled in Game 1 against Minnesota while shooting just 14 shots.

Expect that number to increase as he averaged 24 FGA in the Laker series alongside two games with 4+ 3PM. If the Nuggets want to tie this series up, it’ll be Jamal Murray that proves the difference maker.

The lead guard has hit 15 3-pointers in his last five Game 2s. This is probably our favorite player prop on the entire board and it's at plus money! Play it with confidence!
