Max Strus To Record 12+ Points/Miami To Win

Max Strus is another example of the next-man-up mentality for the Miami Heat as he replaced Duncan Robinson in the starting lineup and has run with the opportunity. In games this season when Strus is in the starting lineup, the Heat have gone 20-3 overall. That said, there should be no worries on that side of the NBA odds.

As for the scoring side, Strus has been averaging just over 10 ppg on the season, but most of that has picked up since the start of 2022.
In the three months leading up to the playoffs, Strus has averaged over 12 ppg in two of those months. He is also averaging exactly 12 ppg in the postseason. In Miami’s first-round series against the Atlanta Hawks, Strus cashed these odds in three of the five games.
CP3 + Ayton Offer Value In Rebounds
C. Paul & D. Ayton To Combine For 20+ Rebounds
- Yes +550
These odds on legal online betting sites offer the most value of any bet on this list. Rebounding has been a major part of the Suns’ success in the playoffs as they are averaging more rebounds per game than the Dallas Mavericks.
Both Deandre Ayton and Chris Paul have played a huge role in the team rebounding as they average a combined 14.6 rpg this season.
Thus far in the playoffs, they have combined for 15 or more rebounds three times with all three of them coming in the first round. While they have not cashed these odds yet in this series, Game 3 could be the breakout for them.
Ayton himself has averaged 15 rpg against the Mavs in the regular season while CP3 has averaged just under 5 rpg. They have also hit over in both of those regular-season games as well.
JT & JB Offer Great Odds To Continue Buck Hunting
J. Tatum & J. Brown To Combine For 80+ PRA

They have hit over the 80 mark for combined stats three times also in the postseason including their last game out in Game 2 of the series against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Also, of the two games they played against Milwaukee in the regular season, they combined for 79 in one of them. When playing on the road, they are also coming close to 80 as they average a combined 73.2 PRA pg.
