NBA Player Props & Picks: Back Chris Paul and Jimmy Butler

NBA Player Props & Picks: Back Chris Paul and Jimmy Butler

On Tuesday night, the NBA Playoffs continue with two Game 5s. After dropping Games 3 and 4 in Philadelphia, the Miami Heat will seek to rebound at home. After dropping consecutive games in Dallas, the Phoenix Suns hope to grab a 3-2 lead over the Mavericks. For these matchups, I’ve mentioned a couple of player props that I enjoy.


However, We’ll compare our NBA estimates to props posted at various sportsbooks using the Action Labs Player Prop tool. I’ve written out two prop bets that I’m currently playing. Also, along with the argument for each bet and the best bookies to find odds on those player props, below.

NBA Player Props & Picks

Jimmy Butler, Over 1.5 Steals (-160)

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Miami Heat
Heat -3.5

Best Book

Then On Tuesday night in Miami, the Philadelphia 76ers face the Miami Heat in Game 5. The best player in the series has been Jimmy Butler (for all four games). Therefore, Butler has been as impressive on both the offensive and defensive ends of the court.


Butler’s defense has been wreaking havoc, with at least two steals in each of the playoff games thus far. Since joining the Heat, Butler has also played the 76ers eight times during the regular season. At least two steals in six of those games.


Therefore, At -160, this prop is a little high, but I’m ready to take the risk on a player prop that has hit in every postseason game.

Chris Paul, Over 29.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists (-125)

Dallas Mavericks vs. Phoenix Suns
Suns -6.5
Time | TV
10 p.m. ET | TNT
Best Book

On Tuesday, the Phoenix Suns attempt to grab a commanding 3-2 series lead over the Dallas Mavericks at home. Chris Paul, the future Hall of Famer, struggled in Dallas and also fouled out early in the fourth quarter of Game 4. Also, for the Suns, he only played 23 minutes and scored five points.


The Suns, on the other hand, will be back at home, and Paul should have a great night. Then, CP3 is averaging 23.2 points, 9.2 assists, and also five rebounds per game at home this postseason. However, CP3 has gone beyond our estimate of 29.5 total points, and rebounds, and also assists four times in his five home games.


Therefore, Paul is shooting 54.4 percent from the field and 100 percent from the free-throw line at home, according to NBA Advanced Stats. At home this postseason, Chris Paul is averaging five more field goal attempts and also 1.5 more 3-point attempts.
