Jimmy Butler - Kevin Love - Josh Hart

  • The best bets among scoring props between New York and Miami are on the over for Jimmy Butler (28.5 points) and Josh Hart (10.5).
  • Kevin Love’s rebounding prop with -102 odds to go over 6.5 boards may be the best player prop for Game 4 based on his previous performances in Miami Heat victories.

MIAMI – Postseason averages for the Miami Heat and New York Knicks indicate that two scoring props and one bet on rebounds may be the best prop bets for the Heat vs Knicks matchup in Game 4.

Using past postseason performances for players on both teams, bettors may be able to find an edge at legal NBA betting sites.

Jimmy Butler Points Prop

Jimmy Butler has earned his “Playoff Jimmy” moniker given to him for his previous postseason performances once again this season, averaging the third most points in the playoffs so far at 34.4 points per game.

Despite that high average, the Jimmy Butler points prop at Bovada has been set at 28.5 for Game 4.

Jimmy Butler Points Prop Odds

  • Over 28.5 Points -114
  • Under 28.5 Points -114

Butler has scored 30 or more points in four of seven games during his current playoff run with Miami this season, with bettors likely getting a discounted number based on 25 and 28-point performances that were split up by his DNP in Game 2 because of his ankle injury.

With two more days to recover heading into a crucial Game Four, Playoff Jimmy’s point total has value at -114 odds.

Josh Hart Points Prop

Averaging 13.0 points per game for the series versus the Miami Heat, Josh Harts player prop for points is the best bet for any Knicks player given that his line is set 2.5 points less than his average.

Josh Hart Points Prop Odds

  • Over 10.5 Points -137
  • Under 10.5 Points +106

Hart has scored 13+ points in five of eight playoff games this season, has played the second-most minutes, and attempted the third-most shots of anyone on the Knicks in their series versus the Heat.

Opportunities and production could lead to Hart easily beating the 10.5 points prop.

Kevin Love Rebounds Prop

The betting underdog with -102 odds, the 6.5 total rebounds prop for Kevin Love discounts the importance of the NBA’s former rebounding king on the glass for the Miami Heat.

Kevin Love Rebounds Prop Odds

  • Over 6.5 Rebounds -102
  • Under 6.5 Rebounds -129

Love has eclipsed 6.5 rebounds five times in eight games throughout the postseason for the Miami Heat.

Most importantly for players at legal sports betting sites, Love has secured seven or more rebounds in five of the six Miami Heat victories thus far in the postseason.

With the Miami Heat being 4.5-point favorites for Game 4 versus the New York Knicks, the stage has been set for the rebounding prop for Kevin Love to be the best prop bet in the Eastern Conference Semifinals matchups.
