By · Updated 1 hour ago
  • We’ve got two exciting NBA player props for you for Friday, May 10, 2024.
  • How many points will Jalen Brunson score tonight in the third game of the New York Knicks vs. Indiana Pacers series?
  • Are we going to see Nikola Jokic put on an MVP-worthy performance in the Denver Nuggets vs. Minnesota Timberwolves Game 3?

Two games of the 2024 NBA Playoffs are on the program today, namely, New York Knicks vs. Indiana Pacers and Denver Nuggets vs. Minnesota Timberwolves.

For the first of those, we’ve got an interesting NBA player prop centered around the performance of the postseason’s best player, Jalen Brunson. In the other one, our prop bet is all about what the newly crowned MVP Nikola Jokic is going to produce.

Knicks vs. Pacers

How to Watch

  • When: Friday, May 10, 2024, at 7:00 p.m. ET
  • Where: Gainbridge Fieldhouse, Indianapolis, Indiana
  • Channel: ESPN

Prop Pick

After two games in New York, the Knicks have a 2-0 lead against the Pacers. Now, the series is moving to Indiana where the home team is bound to go all-in. To make it 3-0, the Knicks need to see their best player Jalen Brunson put on a great show tonight.

That’s something that seems very likely given that this guy’s been the most impressive player of the 2024 NBA Playoffs, averaging 35.6 points per game. In the previous game, he scored under 30 for the first time since the start of the postseason.

The reason for this is that he suffered a foot injury for which he’s still uncertain for Game 3. Nevertheless, we do think he’s going to play tonight, but he probably won’t score more than 35 points.

Nuggets vs. Timberwolves

How to Watch

  • When: Friday, May 10, 2024, at 9:30 p.m. ET
  • Where: Target Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota
  • Channel: ESPN

Prop Pick

Earlier this week, Nikola Jokic won his third MVP award in four seasons. His first game after becoming the 2024 MVP is on the program tonight in Minnesota, where the Timberwolves will welcome him and his Nuggets teammates.

Jokic & Co. are 2-0 down in the series, but if they want to make it 2-1, the Serbian center will have to produce a superb performance. Not only does he need to do well offensively, but he also needs to help his teammates stop the Timberwolves’ offense.

We think he’s going to succeed, which should result in another Jokic triple-double.
