Here are our favorite NBA prop bets for Wednesday, May 10:
Kyle Lowry is averaging 13.3 points per game since the start of this series, and he averaged 14.5 points per game in the two games back in Miami. Of course, this one will now be played at Madison Square Garden, but that really shouldn’t matter all that much. The Heat have completely established their rotation and roles in this series, and that means it’s hard to imagine Lowry not coming out and playing an aggressive offensive game.
Lowry might be coming off the bench for Miami, but he’s still one of the players that head coach Erik Spoelstra trusts the most with the ball in his hands. And the Heat just don’t have a lot of players that can create their own offense with Tyler Herro and Victor Oladipo out. With that said, Lowry’s creativity with the basketball in his hands is desperately needed.
Lowry has also hit at least two 3s in three of the four games he has played in this series. And if he can find a way to make multiple triples again, it’s going to be very hard for him not reach the 11-point mark in this one. Not only does Lowry shoot it well from deep, but he’s also great from the charity stripe. That’s especially important when you consider that Lowry is one of the cleverest players in the league when it comes to drawing fouls. He should be able to force the hands of the officials and make them put him on the line here.
Bet: Lowry Over 10.5 Points (-110)
We went to the over on Stephen Curry’s 30.5-point player total in Game 4 and the superstar ended up coming through for us. Curry had 31 points in that game, but it still felt like he left some food on the table. Curry was just 12 for 30 from the floor and 3 for 14 from 3 in Game 4. However, we’re expecting him to shoot a lot better back in Golden State.
The fact of the matter here is that the Warriors are going to be out if they lose this game. With that in mind, Curry is going to have the freedom to go out and play however he wants. He saved them from elimination in Game 7 against the Sacramento Kings last series, and he nearly led them to a victory in Game 4 on Monday. Golden State does generally do a good job of moving the basketball, but the team is at its best when Curry is able to go out and make plays for himself.
Look for Curry to get another 30 or so shots up in this game, and don’t be surprised if he scores at least 35. You can’t ever count out one of the greatest players ever when his back is against the wall.
Bet: Curry Over 30.5 Points (-125)
