Trae Young, Atlanta Hawks at Philadelphia 76ers
Over 9.5 Assists (-189)
Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.53 units)
Young is coming off of a masterful performance in Game 4 in which he tallied 25 points and 18 assists. He’s done a great job of facilitating for his teammates this postseason (10.7 assists per game), exceeding double digits in three of the four games in this series. With how often he has the ball in his hands and how frequently he’s on the court, Young has a favorable opportunity to dish out 10+ dimes again in Game 5.
Tobias Harris, Philadelphia 76ers vs. Atlanta Hawks
To Score 20+ Points (-180)
Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.56 units)
We hit this prop on Monday with Harris scoring 20 points through the first three quarters. While we didn’t care what he did after, it was odd that he didn’t score a single point in the fourth quarter. Regardless, he’s scored at least 20 points in eight of nine games during the playoffs, so I’ll go to the well again with this wager.
Seth Curry, Philadelphia 76ers vs. Atlanta Hawks
Over 14.5 Points (-110)
Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.91 units)
Curry has been busy from behind the arc in this series, averaging 6.5 three-point attempts per game. Given that he’s hit them at a 57.7 percent rate, he’s scored at least 17 points in three of the four games, topping 20 twice. He should continue to jack up three-pointers at will with Danny Green
(calf) out, which makes the over appealing here.
