Participant Props

Denver Nuggets

Jamal Murray UNDER 2.5 Threes

 Jamal Murray is taking part in improbable basketball and is the X issue for this Nuggets crew.  The Denver Nuggets head into Recreation 6 up 3-2 on the highway.  Murray averages 19.1 Factors and is taking pictures 38.5 P.c from the Three in highway video games this season.

Jokić is taking part in unbelievable basketball as effectively, and I don’t see the additional stress for Murray to mild it up from downtown tonight.  Murray shot 2-4 from the Three in Recreation 5, and went 1-3, and 1-6 from downtown in video games 4 and 5.  As well as Jamal Murray shot 0-9 from the Three in Recreation 2. 

Though Jamal Murray is averaging 37.8 P.c from the Three within the Playoffs, his under-hit fee is 48 P.c.  He’s taking part in unbelievable; nonetheless, I don’t belief over 2.5.  Give me Jamal Murray UNDER 2.5 Threes.

Nikola Jokić OVER 30.6 Factors

 Nikola Jokić is taking part in higher basketball than anybody proper nowHe added 29 factors in Recreation 1, 39 Factors in Recreation 2, 30 Factors in Recreation 3, 53 factors in Recreation 4, and 29 factors in Recreation 5.

He can assault inside, the midrange, and has a lethal three-point shot.  In 2 Video games towards the Suns this season, Jokić averaged 31 Factors per Recreation.  As well as, he’s averaging 30.6 Factors within the Playoffs. 

The Nuggets have an amazing supporting forged, and one other celebrity in Jamal Murray. If the Nuggets need to advance tonight, I anticipate Jokić to cleared the path and have a monster recreation.  It is going to all begin with him and whether or not he can assault early towards Phoenix.  Jokić’s beneath hit fee is 74 p.c, nonetheless I like OVER 30.6 factors.

 Phoenix Suns

Kevin Durant OVER 5.5 Assists

  That is an elimination recreation for the Suns and look no additional than Kevin Durant to do something he can to assist this crew win tonight.  Durant has 21 complete assists mixed within the final three video games towards the Nuggets and does effectively with Devin Booker on the choose and pop.  As well as, Kevin Durant is averaging 5.6 assists within the Playoffs, and 5.5 Assists at dwelling this yr. Even when Chris Paul continues to be out, anticipate Durant to attain, and discover his open teammates, particularly Booker.

Though Durant’s over hit fee on 5.5 Assists is 34 p.c, I like Kevin Durant OVER 5.5 Assists.

 Devin Booker OVER 2.5 Threes

 Sure, Kevin Durant is a improbable basketball participant. Nevertheless, Devin Booker is taking part in wonderful basketball, and is carrying the Suns.  He’s averaging 35.9 Factors within the Playoffs, and 28 Factors at House.  As well as, he’s capable of drive to the ring, create his personal shot, and knock down threes.  Booker has not shot beneath 50 p.c of the three on this collection and has at least 3 made threes towards the Nuggets. 

Given that is an elimination recreation for the Suns, I’m not offered on the Nuggets protection, and I feel Booker may have no downside hitting over 2.5.  Anticipate him to maintain up the recent hand. I like Devin Booker OVER 2.5 threes.
