NBA Player Props for Friday, April 27

The NBA Playoffs continue Friday night as one Eastern Conference game tipoffs earlier than usual at 5:30 p.m. featuring Milwaukee at Indiana.

The Western Conference gets the primetime slots as the Los Angeles Clippers face the Dallas Mavericks, and Minnesota heads to Phoenix in the late-night game.

Which players can fans – and bettors – count on performing well in tonight’s playoff games? We’ll cover our top four player prop bets from Friday’s NBA Playoff games.

Tyrese HaliburtonOver 8.5 Assists
Tyrese HaliburtonUnder 8.5 Assists

Indiana Pacers’ Tyrese Haliburton UNDER 11.5 Assists

Trailing 1-0 in the series, Indiana fired back. The Pacers outscored the Bucks by 12 points in the second half to run away with a 125-108 Game 2 victory. Pascal Siakam has been dominant, hitting over 35 points and 10 rebounds per contest thus far.

Tyrese Haliburton leads all players with 20 assists combined between the two games. Haliburton’s court vision is unreal; the guard is averaging the highest assist-per-game total in his career at 10.9.

And while I fully expect him to finish with double figures for both points and assists, 12 is a high number he’s only accomplished twice against the Bucks in seven matchups against the team. Expect him to fall just short Friday as he leads his team’s offensive charge.

Kyrie IrvingOver 4.5 Rebounds
Kyrie IrvingUnder 4.5 Rebounds

Dallas Mavericks’ Kyrie Irving OVER 4.5 Rebounds

After falling in the first contest of this opening-round series, Dallas avenged the Clippers’ victory with one of their own, finishing off Los Angeles 96-93. The Mavericks had an unexpected boost from P.J. Washington as the power forward scored 18.

Both Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving scored over 23 points in this contest to seal their slim victory. While Irving is called upon to score, his defense and rebounding are also important parts of his game.

In this series, Irving has averaged 6.5 rebounds per game, a mark two ticks higher than his player rebound prop bet total. Expect Irving to continue attacking the glass and at least record five rebounds Friday night.

Anthony EdwardsOver 27.5 Points
Anthony EdwardsUnder 28.5 Points

Minnesota Timberwolves’ Anthony Edwards UNDER 24.5 Points

The Timberwolves have been in control of this series from the onset. Minnesota rolled to a 25-point victory over the Suns before winning by 12 points in the second game. Jaden McDaniels was the surprising high scorer, finishing with 25 points.

The opening-round contest saw shooting guard Anthony Edwards soar to 33 points in that victory. Edwards did not have a magnanimous performance on Tuesday, however, finishing with 15 points on 25% shooting from the field.

Forgive bettors who thought Edwards would run away with the show. The shooting guard has only achieved 25 points or higher in one of the team’s last four games. Expect more of the same tonight as Edwards fails to cover this player prop bet.

Live player props data coming soon for Russell Westbrook.

Los Angeles Clippers’ Russell Westbrook OVER 14.5 Pts + Reb + Ast

The Clippers let a golden opportunity slip away Tuesday as Dallas pulled out a 96-93 victory over the Mavericks. Both James Harden and Paul George scored 22 points in the loss, and Kawhi Leonard finished with 15 points.

A player who may be forgotten by bettors is Russell Westbrook as he comes off the bench. While the former starting point guard for multiple teams has not set the world on fire, he has successfully covered his player combo prop bet in all but one April contest.

Expect the veteran to do so again Friday night against the Mavericks. Let's take the Over!
