Trae Young OVER 4.5 Turnovers (+115)

Anyone who has been paying close attention to this series has seen that Young is being swarmed by Heat defenders. The results have been astounding through the first four games and kudos to them for shutting down this superstar. Young had nine total points last game for heck’s sake, but it's his turnover total that continues to amaze me.

We hit this prop OVER in Game 4 and are coming back to well tonight. Young is averaging six per game during the playoffs and the Heat just have his number. 

Max Strus OVER 3.5 Threes Made (+110)

Strus may not be a household name, but his three-point shooting has been excellent so far this series for the Heat. He is averaging 3.3 made threes per game and has gone over this total in his previous two starts. Between Game 3 and Game 4, Strus is 9-for-24 from downtown.

Volume is the name of the game here and I think Strus rewards us in Game 5. 

Bam Adebayo OVER 0.5 Double-Doubles (+115)

Adebayo has not been a dominant force in this series by any stretch of the imagination. But, the big man from Kentucky has been contributing solid numbers for the Heat in his last four games.

Adebayo has only one double-double this series, in Game 3, but I think he gets back into form tonight. He just needs to crash the boards a bit more and get us to double-digit rebounds.
