2024 NBA Player Props, Breakdown, Odds, and Picks (May 19)

By · Updated 4 weeks ago
  • We’ve got two interesting NBA player props for you for Sunday, May 19, 2024.
  • Jalen Brunson loves playing in New York and the Knicks need him to put on a show tonight at MSG.
  • Jamal Murray needs to score at least twice as many points as he did in his last outing to help the Nuggets advance.

Two NBA games are scheduled for Sunday, May 19, 2024, and each of those will be the last in the series. The Indiana Pacers vs. New York Knicks series is tied 3-3 and Game 7 will decide which of these two teams will get to the Eastern Conference Final.

It’s pretty much the same story when it comes to the Denver Nuggets vs. Minnesota Timberwolves Game 7 – the winner will get to fight for the title in the West.

Pacers vs. Knicks

How to Watch

  • When: Sunday, May 19, 2024, at 3:30 p.m. ET
  • Where: Madison Square Garden, New York City, New York
  • Channel: ABC

Prop Pick

The most interesting fact about the Pacers vs. Knicks series is that each team won each home game. Tonight’s game is played in New York, meaning that the Knicks have every right to feel optimistic about their chances.

Another reason to feel good about Game 7 is that their best player Jalen Brunson has been in sensational form. This guy scored a total of 191 points in the six games with the Pacers, which is 31.83 per game on average. What’s interesting is that his PPG in games played at Madison Square Garden is 38.66.

Given that the Pacers vs. Knicks Game 6 is the crucial game of the series, it’s only logical to assume that Brunson is going to give his utmost tonight. And that means he’s gonna score a lot of points!

NBA Player PropOdds
Jalen Brunson Over 35.5 Points-106

Nuggets vs. Timberwolves

How to Watch

  • When: Sunday, May 19, 2024, at 8:00 p.m. ET
  • Where: Ball Arena, Denver, Colorado
  • Channel: TBA

Prop Pick

In the previous Nuggets vs. Timberwolves game, the defending NBA champions were humiliated by the boys from Minneapolis. The final score was 115-70 for the Wolves, who managed to tie the series 3-3.

Scoring just 70 points is something that hadn’t previously happened to Denver in literally years. The poor scoring performance was particularly surprising given that the newly crowned 2024 NBA MVP Nikola Jokic had an okay game, scoring 22 points.

His teammates, however, were horrible. Jamal Murray, for example, whose average in the regular season was 21.2 PPG, scored just 10 points that evening.

If the Nuggets want to stay in the race for another title, they need to up their game. This goes especially for Murray who needs to up his numbers ASAP.

NBA Player PropOdds
Jamal Murray Over 19.5 Points-127
