NBA Player Props Today | Best NBA Prop Bets

To kick off the Game 5 second-round bets, our analysts have picked the best NBA player prop bets for the Bucks-Celtics and Warriors-Grizzlies matchups. Along with the Celtics winning Game 5, will Jayson Tatum have at least 25 points at TD Garden?

Next, can Giannis Antetokounmpo finish with a combined total of 52 for points, rebounds and assists? Will Jordan Poole end his performance with a minimum of five assists? Read the predictions below. Other NBA player props are on the main page.

Best NBA Bets Today, May 11 — Jayson Tatum to have 25+ points and the Celtics win (-159)

First off, Celtics guard Jayson Tatum is averaging 22.5 points, 5.8 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game against the Bucks in this second-round series. In Game 1, the three-time All-Star put up 21 points in 40 minutes played. Of course, Boston lost that contest 101-89. Then, Tatum finished with 29 points in Game 2. The Celtics bounced back, winning 109-89. However, for Game 3, the fifth-year player only scored 10 points.

Not to mention, Tatum scored a series-high 30 points in Game 4. On Monday, the Celtics defeated the Bucks 116-108 at Fiserv Forum. Considering neither team has won two straight games against the other this series, bettors might decide not to entertain this prop bet. Though, the C’s have the advantage playing at home tonight. Tatum could easily finish with at least 25 points, which is why this is one of the best NBA player props for Game 5 tonight.

NBA Player Prop Bets Today, May 11 — Giannis Antetokounmpo to have at least a combined total of 52 for points, rebounds and assists (-117)

Furthermore, Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 32 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists in this second-round series versus the Celtics. His average total is 53. Like it or not, this is a fair bet. In Game 1, the Greek Freak ended his performance with 24 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists. These numbers add up to 49. Then, the forward closed out his outing with 28 points, nine rebounds and seven assists in Game 2. The total is 44.

Despite his total going under the 52 mark in the first two matchups, Antetokounmpo finished with 42 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists in Game 3. His total here is 62. For Game 4, the two-time MVP generated 34 points, 18 rebounds and five assists. His total came to 57. Since this series has been back and forth, it makes sense why bettors are expecting the Bucks to win tonight. But will Antetokounmpo score at least 30 points on the road?

Best NBA Player Props Today, May 11 — Jordan Poole to finish with at least five assists tonight (-121)

Lastly, Warriors guard Jordan Poole is averaging 23 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists against the Grizzlies in this second-round series. In Game 1, the third-year player ended his showing with 31 points, eight rebounds and nine assists. In the following contest, the guard finished with 20 points, three rebounds and five assists. The only time Poole failed to earn five assists this series was in Game 3.

Besides falling short one time, Poole put up 14 points, six rebounds and five assists in Game 4. Now that the Grizzlies are without Ja Morant, the Warriors have a slight chance of winning by at least double digits. Whether you choose a Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson or Jordan Poole prop bet tonight, just know that Draymond Green cannot be trusted to finish a full game. This is due to injuries and ejections.
