What does it mean? It means we're combining all the shows here under one umbrella in the Reags prop bet room. I'm pretty sure we have all the shows, might start a new one with Clem. Haven't decided yet. Either way, we're here to talk prop bets. REAL GAMBLING (I kid, I kid). Yes, I love gambling actual hoops games, but everyone is talking about those. We'll pick random prop bets every day we can to put some money on. Why not? Someone going to yell at us? Won't be the first time on this here website and it won't be the last.
All numbers and lines are from our dear friends at Penn National.
Bucks and under 227.5 (+105)
Fuck it, we're going back. We got screwed the other day with that fourth quarter late foul bullshit and the Magic scoring 17 points in 3 minutes, 8 the rest of the quarter. That still just got to 227. The Bucks defense is starting to get dialed in. They want rest. They have to close out this series now and get to the Heat. This series has been absurd spread drama, but we're going Bucks ML and under 227.5. Let's be miserable again.
Lakers and under 224.5 (+114)
Same thing I just said about the Bucks. The Lakers can close out this series and get a little bit of rest before getting the Thunder/Rockets. A team with the age of the Lakers needs that. Also no Damian Lillard and I don't see the Lakers scoring 135 again. Feels like we're due for a bounceback to the under. 3 of the 4 games have this under, so we'll play the number here.
Khris Middleton over 19.5 (-107)
Middleton finally found his shot in game 4, getting 21. That said, his season average is 20.9 and against the Magic he's averaging 19.5 on the dot. The Bucks NEED Middleton to get going before the Heat series. He needs to be an offensive threat to take some pressure off of Giannis. He's improved his outside shooting, but he's still lethal at the midrange and floater game. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Bucks try to get Middleton involved early here, the way he played the second half in game 4. We'll take 20.
Steven Adams over 10.5 rebounds (-110)
Bounce back game on the glass? Yeah we're going there. Adams has gotten 11 in 3 of the 4 games. The last game he had just 8. We know the Rockets run the small ball but Adams is still playing 25+ minutes in every game. He's staying on the floor and that's the key here for this number. Adams is a great rebounder.
