Best NBA Prop Bets Today

  • Brandon Clarke OVER 15.5 Points, Rebounds and Assists (-130)
  • Trae Young OVER 38.5 Points, Rebounds and Assists (-125)
  • Patrick Beverley UNDER 9.5 Points (-115)
  • Steven Adams UNDER 10.5 Rebounds (-115)

Brandon Clarke OVER 15.5 Points, Rebounds and Assists (-130)

The juice is a little pricey, but we're getting a full point discount for Brandon Clarke in the highest projected total NBA playoff game Tuesday night.

Clarke played 27-plus minutes in the Game 1 loss, but more importantly played a ton of minutes late in the game when the Grizzlies had a chance to get back into it. He finished with a double-double: 13 points, 12 boards and two assists, passing his projected number by 12.5.

Clarke was actually one of three Grizzlies to finish with a positive plus/minus in the game. If the series stays at its current pace, it will be Clarke getting more crunch time minutes over Steven Adams, which will only cause his numbers (and prop projections) to keep rising. Grab the discount while you can. -- Ben Heisler

Trae Young OVER 38.5 Points, Rebounds and Assists (-125)


Trae Young had arguably his worst game of the 2021-22 season in Game 1, scoring just eight points while shooting 1-for-12 from the field. 

The Hawks were blown out, obviously, but I think the movement in Young’s props isn’t justified because of one game. Are we forgetting he had 35 points, eight dimes and two boards against Miami 11 days ago? 

Trae had cleared this line in eight straight games prior to Game 1, counting the two play-in matchups, and I think he bounces back in a big way in this one. Young really struggled from deep (0-for-7) in Game 1, but he’s going to be well-rested since Atlanta was out of the game in the second half. 

Villain Trae returns tonight. – Peter Dewey

Patrick Beverley UNDER 9.5 Points (-115)

I won’t lie. This is 100% an emo bet. Patrick Beverley is one of my least favorite players in the league and I am happy to fade him tonight. 

Beverley has missed this line in four of his last six games. While he did hit two threes last game, I’m not banking on the 34% shooter to keep up his hot streak. Last game’s pace was frenetic. I expect it to slow down just a little bit in Game 2, which means Beverley’s points will be the ones to take the hit. – Donnavan Smoot

Steven Adams UNDER 10.5 Rebounds (-115)

This number is implying that Steven Adams is going to be a key cog in Game 2, but I don't see many minutes for him. The postseason is about adjustments, and this matchup doesn't suit the lumbering Aussie well. Adams posted the worst defensive rating of any Grizzlies player in Game 1 (137.7 points allowed per 100 possession) in 24 minutes and I think he finds himself on the bench for most of this game.

Even if he does play, he had three rebounds in the opening tilt. This number is factoring in his season average of 10, but I see limited opportunities for him, assuming Jaren Jackson Jr. can stay out of foul trouble in this one. Adams can't guard Karl-Anthony Towns, and Taylor Jenkins needs to be swift with his adjustment before the series gets away from them. – Reed Wallach
