Here are our favorite NBA prop bets for Friday, April 28:
Stephen Curry had 31 points in a Game 5 win over the Kings, and he did that while shooting just 2 for 10 from 3. Curry should be able to bounce back with his jumper, as the series is now heading back to Golden State. Curry averaged 34.0 points per game in the two homes games he has played in this series, and he was 11 for 23 from deep in those games. With that in mind, how can you not like Curry to go over 31.5 in this game?
This series has been played at an absurdly high pace, and the total for tonight is once again up at 236. This should turn into another track meet, which will allow Curry to take a ton of shots. And he knows what he needs to do in order to close out a very good Sacramento team, which is yet another reason to expect the very best from the four-time NBA champion.
Bet: Curry Over 31.5 Points (-120)
LeBron James is having a horrible shooting series for the Lakers, as he is hitting just 16.7% of his 3s this series. LeBron also completely failed to show up in Game 5, as he scored 15 points on 5-of-17 shooting from the floor in that one. There’s no guarantee that LeBron will go out and make up for all of that in Game 6, as it’s difficult to find your stroke when you’re struggling. But we can definitely count on LeBron hustling his tail off in Game 6.
With the Lakers one game away from advancing to the Western Conference Semifinals, LeBron should play extremely hard on both ends of the floor. That’s why we’re playing LeBron to have at least three “stocks” (steals + blocks) in this game. Bringing it on the defensive end is one of the best ways to get yourself going on the other end of the floor. And LeBron will need to play well defensively in order to eliminate the Grizzlies.
Bet: LeBron Over 2.5 Steals + Blocks (+135)
