Here are our favorite NBA prop bets for Thursday, April 27:
Dejounte Murray will be returning from his one-game suspension tonight, but the train has already left the station. The Hawks are going to put the ball in Trae Young’s hands and live and die by the results. The 24-year-old has delivered three incredible performances in a row for Atlanta, averaging 35.0 points and 12.3 assists per game in that span. Young also hit a game winner to keep the Hawks alive in this series, and it’s just hard to imagine him taking his foot off the gas as a scorer here.
With Atlanta’s season on the line again, look for Young to be aggressive in hunting his shot. He is 11 for 29 from deep over the last three games, so he has been in a nice groove from deep. And when the Celtics overplay his jumper, Young is blowing right by them for floaters or layups. Young is also doing a nice job of getting to the free throw line, which is always nice for some quick, easy points.
The Celtics should come out with a more spirited defensive effort here, but that likely won’t be enough to keep Young in line. This looks like it’ll be another high-scoring game in the series, so Young will likely be doing a whole lot of scoring for Atlanta.
Bet: Young Over 27.5 Points (-125)
