NBA Betting Prediction: NBA Player Props | July 17

Jrue Holiday Over 7.5 Assists

While his scoring efficiency has been inconsistent, at best, Jrue Holiday has played solid defense and he has facilitated the offense. This has led to steady, high assist totals. Of course, playing alongside Giannis Antetokounmpo does make it a bit easier. Holiday has gone over this 7.5 total twice this series, with the two failed attempts being games of seven assists. He has totaled nine or more assists in six of his last eight games. Holiday clearly has a great chance to do it again in Game 5, shown by the high projected game total.

Chris Paul Over 8.5 Assists

The two games in Milwaukee featured some sloppy basketball from Paul. Not only did his scoring drop, but he also turned the ball over a combined nine times. Still, he put up assist totals of nine and seven. He has dished nine assists twice this series, and he has a great chance to do it in a bounce-back Game 5. Devin Booker should be aggressive in scoring, and the Suns should be looking to get Deandre Ayton more involved offensively. Both of these things point to a high assist game for Paul. Awesemo’s projections also predict 9.60 assists for him. The Awesemo NBA Player Props Tool also gives this NBA player prop a 65% chance to win.

Jae Crowder Over 6.5 Rebounds

Jae Crowder has played his role very well during the NBA Finals. He is on the floor to hit 3s, play defense and grab rebounds. The rebounds have also been coming in bunches for him, as he has totals of nine, 10, six and eight during these four series games. While the six total may be concerning, Game 3 featured the Suns losing by 20 points. The Bucks were hitting their shots and the Phoenix starters sat down early. Saturday, with the Bucks projected to be trailing, they may settle for more long-range shots in order to catch up, which would lead to more rebounding opportunities for Crowder.
