Tonight’s Game 5 slate could go a number of ways. The Hawks @ Heat seems like a pretty cut and dried Miami win, but just when you think you know how the Timberwolves @ Grizzlies and Pelicans @ Suns games are going to go they end up completely opposite.
This postseason has kept up guessing and it’s only the first round, let’s see how tonight goes:
🏀Top Player Props April 26th 🏀
LineStar has a new Player Prop tab that lets you search for the best individual props through apps such as DraftKings, FanDuel, BetMGM, Caesars, and PointsBet. Here are some of the best bets for tonight:
🏀CJ McCollum (Over 2.5 three pointers) – He’s taken at least 8 three-pointers in all four games this series and was 9-18 from beyond the arc the first two games combined in Phoenix.
🏀Dillon Brooks (Over 18.5 points) – He’s went for 24 points in two of four games this series and you have to like the 20 shots in Game 4. Minnesota focused on Morant, and now the red hot Bane.
🏀De’Andre Hunter (Over 14.5 points) -Coming off a 24-point performance in Game 4, and has put up 13+ shots in three straight. He’s scored at least 14 in all four games this series.
🏀Jarred Vanderbilt (Under 10.5 points) – Minnesota needs rebounding help which is why he’s played 32+ minutes last two games. Has grabbed 8 and 13 boards the last two.
Tonight’s Key NBA Matchups
Hawks @ Heat (-6.5) , O/U 217.5 7:00 ET
Trae Young is still at $9.3k tonight even though he’s posted a 23fp and a 17fp this series. Even in Young’s “good” games this series he hasn’t broken 45fp. Miami will be without Kyle Lowry (hamstring) as they go for the close out, and Jimmy Butler ($9.2k) should have high ownership as he’s posted 65+ fp in two of the last three.
Timberwolves @ Grizzlies (-6), O/U 231.5 7:30 ET
This series is all over the map coming back to Memphis knotted up 2-2. Karl-Anthony Towns went for 33 points and 14 rebounds over the weekend (57fp) but also had just 22 total points the two previous games.
It’s been hard to find consistency on either side of this matchup, although even when Ja Morant isn’t scoring he’s had the rebounds and assists to get him up to a 45fp floor over the four games ($9.9k). Desmond Bane has hit 7-15 and 8-12 from beyond the arc the last two so he’ll be a big target here.
Pelicans @ Suns (-6.5), O/U 215.5 10:00 ET
New Orleans is putting up a fight in this series heading back to Phoenix 2-2. The driving force has been Brandon Ingram who has gone for 30+ real points in three straight. Ingram has been in the perfect lineup in three straight and only had a $100 price increase from Sunday.
Chris Paul looks to have high early ownership projections which is strange because he was completely flustered to the tune of 4 points on just 2-8 shooting. the Suns are back home though where Paul averaged 54fp the last two games, and he’s still dishing out dimes averaging 12.3 assists this series.
