Trae Young, Atlanta Hawks vs. Philadelphia 76ers
To Score 25+ Points (-200)
Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.5 units)
Young’s points prop line is set at 27.5, and if I had to choose I’d lean towards the over there. However, I like rolling with him on this prop instead to buy a little more of a cushion. This is a threshold that he’s hit regularly in the playoffs, scoring at least 25 points in eight of 10 games and averaging 29.4 points per game overall.
John Collins, Atlanta Hawks vs. Philadelphia 76ers
Over 7.5 Rebounds (-135)
Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.74 units)
After averaging 29 minutes per game during the regular season, Collins has averaged 35 minutes per contest in this series, logging at least 33 minutes in every game. He’s cashed in on his added playing time by grabbing at least 10 rebounds in three of the last four games. There’s no reason to believe he’ll see a decrease in playing time in Game 6, so the over is an appealing option here.
Seth Curry, Philadelphia 76ers at Atlanta Hawks
Over 15.5 Points (-115)
Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.87 units)
Curry’s points prop was set at 14.5 points on Wednesday, and he blew past it with 36 points. Of his 19 field-goal attempts, 12 came from behind the arc. He’s thrived from deep in this series, averaging 4.4 made three-pointers on 58% shooting to fuel his 21.4 points per game. With his line only increasing by one point, give me the over again, especially since he’s topped this number in five of his last six games.
