Best NBA Prop Bets Today May 10 2024 Andrew Nembhard

Andrew Nembhard Over 10.5 Points (-122) at FanDuel

What has Nembhard done in the playoffs? Nothing much, aside from increasing his scoring average by more than four points and go over this total in seven straight games. He scored 15 points in 27 minutes in Game Two between the Indiana Pacers and the New York Knicks and has not had any trouble breaking down their staunch defense.

Nembhard averaged 13.6 points on 59.2 percent field goal shooting in the postseason and has his confidence at a near-all-time high. The Knicks are down several pieces of their regular rotation and will feel the effects on defense, which should also help free up Nembhard for a strong scoring day.

Nickeil Alexander-Walker 10+ Points (+280) at FanDuel

It appears as if the nickname “NAW and Order” is here to stay for Alexander-Walker and the Minnesota Timberwolves—but while that callsign was derived from his and his team’s defensive prowess, we’re looking at the former Virginia Tech Hokie to have yet another efficient night scoring the ball.

The 25-year-old is fresh off a 14-point performance in Game Two and averaged 11.3 points in the playoffs. He also went over this total in four of six games and is playing nearly 30 minutes per night, which should give him more than enough time to have a fighting chance to register another over.

Aaron Gordon Over 6.5 Rebounds (+106) at FanDuel

The Denver Nuggets need Gordon’s physicality around the rim if they are going to survive this series. He is yet to grab more than four boards in a game, and it’s no coincidence that resulted in the T’Wolves taking an unexpected 2-0 lead over the defending champions.

Despite a slow start to this series, Gordon went over this line in four of five games against the Los Angeles Lakers and averaged 6.5 rebounds during the regular season. We expect to see a greater sense of urgency from the Nuggets on Friday, and that should help Gordon get to the over.

Miles McBride Under 10.5 Points (-102) at FanDuel

Allow us to be crystal clear: We are only taking this bet if Jalen Brunson is able to play. If his foot problem is going to keep him off the court, then we would not advocate for this pick, seeing as the 23-year-old McBride would likely play close to or even more than 40 minutes and would take tons of three-point attempts.

McBride went from 23.3 minutes per game against the Philadelphia 76ers to 15.5 against Indy and has four total points in the series. His efficiency and rhythm are not there (unlike the Philly series), and the Pacers are doing a nice job crowding the three-point line where he likes to take most of his shots.

Jaden McDaniels Over 3.5 Rebounds (+118) at FanDuel

What a difference a year can make! McDaniels went from punching a wall in frustration and breaking his hand last playoffs to being one of the biggest contributors to the Timberwolves’ first-round sweep of the Phoenix Suns and early 2-0 lead against the Nuggets with Game Three scheduled to take place in Minnesota.

The 23-year-old only managed two boards in Game Two but brought in eight in Game One. he hit the over in four of six playoff games and is going to continue to be an important piece because of his defensive prowess, especially if he can force Jamal Murray into more inefficient shooting nights.
