NBA Player Props Predictions 1: Jalen Brunson, Knicks, Over 34.5 Points (-113) FD

Jalen Brunson has been the catalyst for the Knicks this season, and he’s been incredible so far in the postseason. In the first round, Brunson cleared this number in four of the six games, including the final four games. In the final ten games he’s played, including heading into the postseason, Brunson has cleared this number in seven of them.

The Knicks and Pacers play opposite styles of basketball. The Pacers play at the fastest pace, while the Knicks play at the slowest. The Pacers were 27th in points allowed this season, and guards had their way with them in the first round. Given the matchup and Brunson’s usage, this is one of the best NBA player props to bet on tonight.

NBA Player Props Predictions 2: Nikola Jokic, Nuggets, Over 29.5 Points (-113) FD

The Nuggets dropped Game One at home, but we expect them, and their best player, to bounce back. Jokic dropped 32 in the loss on Saturday, but given the stakes of this one, we expect Jokic to continue to look to score in an early must-win game in this series.

Jokic is known more for his ability to pass and rebound than score, but given the circumstances, the best player on the court will need to look to score. The Wolves have the No. 1 defense in the NBA in points allowed, but Jokic is a different beast. He has cleared this number in just 36% of games this season, but his usage is expected to be through the roof, and we see an edge at this price and number.
