Kelly Oubre Jr. Over 11.5 Points (-125) at FanDuel

Oubre Jr. was an important piece in the Philadelphia 76ers’ rotation during all four games of his team’s series against the New York Knicks, playing 38+ in three of them and averaging 35.8 for the series. He scored 15 and 19 points in his last two games and posted 48.6/46.2/75 shooting splits during those four games.

The Knicks found success fronting Joel Embiid with OG Anunoby late in Game Four, but it’s unlikely they start with that strategy. A hot start by Embiid could open up the floor for Oubre Jr., who’s been committed to driving to the rim and finishing through traffic even late in the fourth quarter.

Josh Hart Over 4.5 Assists (-130) at FanDuel

Hart is playing himself into all-time fan-favorite status with his level of effort every night, especially in this series. He cashed the over in Games Three and Four with six and five assists and gets tons of opportunities to create offense when he grabs rebounds and flies down the court in transition.

Hart isn’t a natural playmaker in the sense of having the offense run through him, but he gets a ton of touches and is often involved at the top of the key. The Knicks posted the third-worst field goal percentage (43) to start the postseason, and Hart still managed to split the over/under 2-2. He should be able to get over if the Knicks have even just a decent shooting night.

Franz Wagner Under 19.5 Points (-104) at FanDuel

The Orlando Magic are only 18-25 on the road in the regular and postseason combined compared to 31-12 in their building. That’s par for the course with a young and inexperienced team, but Wagner, the team’s second-best player, is a great representation of the dichotomy that exists depending on the venue.

The 6-foot-10 22-year-old averaged 0.6 fewer points and shot 4.8 percent worse from the field on the road than he did at home. He also scored 18 or fewer points in the first three games before exploding for 34 in Game Four, but history suggests he’s likely to regress back below his line on Tuesday.

Max Strus Under 1.5 Threes (-104) at FanDuel

The Cleveland Cavaliers signed Strus in the offseason after their lack of perimeter shooting was exposed in a series loss to the Knicks a year ago. But despite being a three-point sniper by trade, Strus made three total three-pointers (no more than one in a game) in the series with Orlando.

Strus only played an average of 27 minutes in the last two games after he averaged 35 in the first two and 32 during the regular season. His woeful 17.6 percent shooting from beyond the arc combined with the Magic’s airtight defense are both reasons to take his under ahead of Game Five.

Tyrese Haliburton Under 2.5 Threes (+134) at FanDuel

Haliburton had his first strong game of the postseason in Game Four, going 5-12 (41.7 percent) from beyond the arc en route to 24 points and four assists. That was the second straight game he attempted 12 three-pointers, yet he’s only shooting 29.4 percent from deep in the series.

Haliburton split the over/under 2-2 and is still a fraction of the player he was before his hamstring injury in January. The Milwaukee Bucks are likely to miss Damian Lillard, which means defensive specialists Patrick Beverley and Andre Jackson Jr. will likely spend lots of time shadowing Haliburton and making it difficult for him to get clean looks from beyond the arc.
