Prop Pick

The 76ers won the last game by just one point. And they did it in overtime. As a result, the series is tied 2-2, but now the Celtics have an advantage. Why? Because Game 5 is played on their turf. TD Garden in Boston is the place where they went 32-9 in the regular season.

The last time they played against the 76ers in Boston, they won 121-87. It was Philadelphia’s worst offensive performance since November. The new NBA MVP Joel Embiid scored just 15 points that day. Truth be told, he did spend only 26:37 minutes on the court in that game.

This time, he’s bound to do better. The problem is that BetOnline’s oddsmakers have set the point margin at 29 points. We’re not 100% sure he’s gonna pull it off. However, we do think he’s going to record at least 25-26 points, as well as at least 10 rebounds and even a couple of assists.

Joel Embiid: Pts + Reb + Ast at least 43-162

Prop Pick

The Nuggets won the first two games, both played at Ball Arena in Denver. Then, the series moved to Phoenix and the Suns made it 2-2. Now, the Suns vs Nuggets series is going back to Colorado, and we’re bound to see a good performance from the home side.

One Denver player who’s bound to get in the spotlight tonight is Nikola Jokic. The former NBA MVP was in focus in the last game after he shoved the Phoenix owner, Matt Ishbia. Luckily for the Serbian center, he did not get suspended.

We’ll see him on the court tonight and you can be certain that he’s going to be fired up. He wants to get one over Ishbia and the best thing to do is to help his team destroy Phoenix.

Nikola Jokic: Pts + Reb + Ast at least 54-121
