Here are our favorite NBA prop bets for Wednesday, April 26:
One of the biggest reasons the Knicks have a 3-1 series lead over the Cavaliers is that Mitchell Robinson has been the best big man on the floor on either team. Robinson has just been a monster around the basket, making life difficult on both Evan Mobley and Jarrett Allen. Both players have looked lost throughout this series because of Robinson’s ability to protect the rim and impact the battle on the boards.
Robinson has also been racking up stocks throughout this series, as he’s averaging 3.0 combined steals and blocks per game. With that in mind, we’re going back to him to fill up the stat sheet again. The total on his steals and blocks for tonight is just 2.5 and it’s hard to envision him not hitting three again. Even if the Knicks lose this game, they’re going to go all out trying to end this series as fast as possible.
Bet: Robinson Over 2.5 Steals + Blocks (-155)
Dennis Schroder played 30 minutes in Game 4, which came directly after the 29-year-old played 24 minutes in Game 3. He’s starting to prove that he’s the right type of player to play big minutes around Los Angeles’ stars in the postseason, so he’s now a viable option on the player props market.
With Schroder playing more minutes, how can you not back him to record at least three assists tonight? Schroder actually had at least three dimes in each of the first three games in this series, and that was before he saw an uptick in playing time. With his minutes now on the rise, he should be able to make some more plays for his teammates — especially if this game is played at a faster pace, which is likely considering the Grizzlies will be playing at home.
Bet: Schroder Over 2.5 Assists (-145)
Jrue Holiday is coming off a two-steal game in Game 4 of this series, and he is a guy that can get his hands on the basketball rather often on the defensive end. Holiday averaged only 1.2 steals per game this season, but he averaged 1.6 steals per game in each of the previous four. This is one of the best perimeter defenders in basketball, and his team is facing elimination. With that said, we’re expecting an incredible effort from Holiday.
With Holiday likely to be more locked in than ever, this seems like a great chance to take the over on his steals prop at +190 odds. Miami is turning the ball over more than all but one team in the playoffs this year. That helped to make this an easy decision when looking for props to back tonight.
Bet: Holiday Over 1.5 Steals (+190)
Even with Draymond Green returning to action in Game 4, Kevon Looney ended up having 14 rebounds for Golden State. Looney has now had 34 rebounds over the last two games, and he has just been a monster on the glass for the Warriors. And all things considered, it’s hard to see him slowing down soon.
The Warriors like to play small-ball lineups with Green at the center spot, but they have needed Looney’s size because of Sacramento’s Domantas Sabonis. And as long as Looney is playing big minutes, he’s going to deliver when it comes to the little things. He has a high motor and a knack for finding the basketball.
Bet: Looney Over 11.5 Rebounds (-120)
