Best NBA Prop Bets Record to Date

Here are the plays our team is eyeing for tonight’s slate with all odds via WynnBET:

Best NBA Prop Bets Today

  • Jaylen Brown OVER 6.5 Rebounds (-135)
  • Jimmy Butler OVER 35.5 Points, Rebounds and Assists (-125)
  • Jimmy Butler OVER 4.5 Assists (+105)

Jaylen Brown OVER 6.5 Rebounds (-135)

This number is the same as Game 3, but the odds have shifted from +110 to -135. I don't think moving the vig does much justice, this prop should be 7.5. 

Brown had nine rebounds in his 40-point Game 3 outburst and has gone over this total in every game this series. Even further, he has gone over this number in eight of 14 playoff games. 

Outside of the Nets sweep where he went over it once in four games, he has gone over this number in seven of 10 games. I'm going to stick with Brown to remain aggressive and go over this number. – Reed Wallach

Jimmy Butler OVER 35.5 Points, Rebounds and Assists (-125)

Jimmy Butler missed the second half of Game 3, and his knee injury is a bit of a concern here, but if he plays, I expect him to be a full go in Game 4

Butler’s PRA got as high as 39.5 in this series, but the injury has knocked it all the way back down to 35.5. 

Prior to getting injured in Game 3, Butler had cleared 35.5 PRA in seven straight games! If he’s healthy enough to play, we’re going to get Jimmy’s all, and I think he clears this line once again. – Peter Dewey

Jimmy Butler OVER 4.5 Assists (+105)

Back in Game 1, Butler had one of the best games of his playoff career, dropping 41 points and cruising to the over in points, rebounds, steals and blocks in Miami’s win over the Celtics.

Needless to say, the one prop he finished just short of was the one I bet: assists. I needed six or more, and Butler finished with five.

Butler, after leaving Game 3 with knee soreness, is expected to play in Game 4 tonight, and I’ll go back to the well on his assists prop with a lower number in play.

He finished with just three assists after Game 2, despite his assist opportunities remaining the same throughout the regular season; averaging 5.5 per night. In the playoffs, he’s actually seen his assist opportunities increase. Following the loss, he said directly that he needs to get his teammates more involved.

As Butler returns from injury with a larger focus on distributing the basketball, this feels like the ideal situation to grab a lower number on his assists and cash in. — Ben Heisler
