Best NBA Player Props for May 12, 2024

BEST NBA PLAYER PROPS FOR MAY 12 2024 – The second round is underway, and there have been some exciting games thus far. The Knicks and Pacers series has been electric, as the Knicks cannot seem to play in a boring game.

The Nuggets and Timberwolves series has the Timberwolves up two games to one over last year’s champions. Nikola Jokic is not going to go down without a fight, though. These games should make for some good Sunday basketball.

Pascal Siakam Over 21.5 Points -102

Pascal Siakam has been quiet through the first three games of the series. He is averaging 19.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 2.7 assists in the first three while playing 34.7 minutes per game. He leads the team in rebounding but has not had many key moments. He had a -4, -9, and +15 plus/minus in the first three games, respectively. He is tracking in the right direction, and I think he contributes more in the scoring column.

He finished with 26 points last game on 9-14 shooting, but everyone is talking about Tyrese Haliburton, who scored 35 points with six threes. Siakam is flying under the radar and is spot to take advantage of that. He can get 22, especially if he grabs three offensive rebounds again.

Isaiah Hartenstein Over 9.5 Rebounds -122

Mitchell Robinson is out for several weeks after game one, so he will not return for the rest of the playoffs. Isaiah Hartenstein is playing big minutes this series, averaging 38 minutes per game.

He is averaging 8.7 rebounds per game through the first three games, and Josh Hart is averaging 15.3 per game. Hart is crashing the glass hard, especially since Robinson went down with an injury. The Pacers will key on him on the defensive glass, and Hartenstein will feast.

The Pacers were outrebounded by eight and 10 in the first two games, which they lost.

They grabbed one more board in game three, and they won. They need to grab more rebounds than the Knicks to stay competitive, so they will focus on boxing out Hart. Hartenstein has an opportunity to pick up the slack, which makes this prop a solid play.

Anthony Edwards Over 27.5 Points -118

The Timberwolves got steamrolled last game, 117-90 at home. They beat the Nuggets by 26 the game prior in Denver, so they were only repaying the favor. This game will be far more competitive, and Anthony Edwards will be the key for the Timberwolves. He scored 19 points in 37 minutes in game three, his lowest since scoring 15 in game two against the Suns. He followed that game by scoring 36 in game three and 40 in game four to finish the series.

He will shoulder the load in game four, and I expect him to shoot more than 20 shots. He is shooting 36.8% from three in this series and 59% from the field. The shots will fall, and he should have plenty of shots. Do not overthink this game, and ride the hot hand.
