Best NBA Betting Picks Today: Player Props | June 28

Ivica Zubac Over 10.5 Rebounds

Center Ivica Zubac is yet to finish with fewer than 11 rebounds in any playoff game in which he has seen significant playing time. Of course, that really only amounts to the past three games of these Western Conference Finals. Starved for rebounding production, the Clippers have played Zubac at least 33 minutes in each of the last three contests. In Game 4 on Saturday he played a whopping 40 minutes. Given that he averaged 7.2 boards over the full season in just over 22 minutes per game, it’s no surprise to see his production.

It is interesting to note that the majority of sportsbooks are juiced on both sides of their NBA player props offering for Zubac’s total rebounds tonight. Clearly they aren’t too confident in taking on much liability in either direction. The Clippers are going to need Paul George at his best offensively if they are to escape Phoenix with a win tonight. That means other players will need to crash the glass hard. While George’s rebounding outputs have been phenomenal, conserving his energy for the offensive end after a brutal shooting display on Saturday is of the utmost importance. Zubac will be the key piece to that rebounding puzzle, leading to an over prediction on 10.5 boards.

Chris Paul Over 9.5 Assists

Chris Paul didn’t shoot that well in either of Games 3 and 4 after making his return to the lineup. Of course, contending with the defense of Patrick Beverley lends itself to some tough sledding offensively. Paul was plenty busy finding teammates though. After 12 assists in Game 3, he had another seven on Saturday. Given the defensive nature of that Game 4 clash, it was pretty impressive to see. Bettors can find even-money odds on Paul to go over 9.5 assists in tonight’s matchup.

The last time Paul played at Phoenix Suns arena he went off for 15 assists. With a spot in the NBA Finals looming, it’s hard to bet against him tonight. Paul simply makes those playing around him better. With the home atmosphere, perhaps a few extra shots will fall for his teammates too. The Awesemo NBA Player Props Tool is high on the betting value of playing over 9.5 assists in this spot. A big game from Paul would certainly be a fitting way for the Suns to clinch their spot in the Finals.

Mikal Bridges Over 11.5 Points

Game 2 of these Western Conference Finals snapped a run of eight consecutive games scoring in double figures for Mikal Bridges. Given that he averaged 13.5 points per game over the course of the season, it’s somewhat surprising to see even-money odds for him to finish over 11.5 in Game 5 tonight. Bridges has seen minutes hovering in the mid- to upper 30s throughout the postseason. Bridges is known for contributing across multiple statistical categories. That said, he should be able to clear this NBA player props line for points tonight. He will have the home court atmosphere on his side. Look to buy low on the over after his low-scoring game on Saturday.
