Game three is upon us. The Nuggets have dominated this series thus far, which has been mostly powered by star players. Will they take a commanding 3-0 lead on Saturday night?
Or will Lebron and the Lakers pull out a win at home, getting that much closer to evening the series? Regardless of how this game shakes out, we’re excited to look at our favorite Underdog props, in hopes of hitting it big!
LeBron’s RA total is going to have to get higher than 17 for us to shy away from it. He’s eclipsed this in his last three games, totaling at least 18 RA in each contest.
While his scoring numbers have been relatively light, LeBron has continued to help out his teammates, dishing them the rock while coming up big on the boards.
He’s a consistent player, and we’re confident in his ability to have another productive night, at least in these two areas.
We’re going to keep betting this. Every. Single. Night. Jokic is one of the main reasons that the Nuggets are in this place to begin with.
Not only is a lethal force on offense, but his abilities to rebound and pass efficiently are other-worldly. With that in mind, we have to take the over on Jokic’s PRA.
He’s achieved at least 53 PRA in four of his past five games. He missed this mark during game 2, a performance where he had 52 PRA. With that in mind, we’re expecting Jokic to “bounce back,” crushing his PRA on Saturday evening.
For any shortcomings that LeBron has encountered in terms of points scored, Davis has more than made up for them. He continues to have solid outings, putting up 40 in game 1.
He did struggle in game 2, only scoring 18 points. While that might be a cause of concern for some bettors, we’re not shying away from Davis in game 3. This is a must-win, and Davis will be more than up to the test to put up at least 25.
Hachimura has scored 17 and 21 points in his last two games. You might be wondering why we’re taking the under on him on Saturday?
Well, we’re not expecting him to play at least 28 minutes. We’re expecting this game to be close throughout, and players like LeBron, Davis and Austin Reaves will likely carry the bulk of the load.
Plus, before games 1 and 2, Hachimura hadn’t scored over 13 points since May 4th. We like his chances of going under 13, leaving the scoring to his other teammates.
Don’t sleep on MPJ. He has scored at least 3 three-pointers in three of his past four outings. He’s a massive part of this offense, and Jokic typically finds him open on the three-point line.
We’re expecting more of the same during game 3, especially since he hits at a 41.4% rate. Don’t overthink MPJ’s three-point total.
