The Dallas Mavericks took a 3-0 lead over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night behind 33 points apiece from Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving. Anthony Edwards put up 26 points, nine rebounds, and nine assists, but was quiet in the fourth quarter, as Karl-Anthony Towns struggled from the field yet again.

Here are our favorite NBA player prop picks for the playoffs on Monday.

Best NBA Prop Bets for Monday, May 27

T.J. McConnell Under 6.5 Assists (-102) at FanDuel

McConnell appeared to be in line to start Game Three after Tyrese Haliburton was ruled out with a hamstring injury, but instead, he retained his spot on the bench. He played a playoff-high 29 minutes and scored 23 points but still managed to finish six with assists, cashing his third straight under in the series.

McConnell did a nice job hunting his shot but hasn’t been a great playmaker over the course of the series. The Boston Celtics are now just one win away from advancing to the NBA Finals and should give their best effort on both sides of the ball, making it hard for him to get to the over in his assists.

Al Horford Under 11.5 Points (-130) at FanDuel

Horford had his best game of the playoffs in Game Three, scoring 23 points and shooting 7-12 (58.3 percent) from three-point land. But despite that, history is not on his side, as he only scored double-digits in consecutive games one time in these playoffs, and that was after a six-day rest between Game Five against the Cleveland Cavaliers and Game One against the Indiana Pacers.

The Celtics’ veteran big man is 37 years old and can’t be at his best every night. He has also been extremely hit-or-miss from beyond the arc and hasn’t shown much interest in attacking the basket throughout the postseason, which are both reasons to fade him in the potential closeout game on Monday.

Jayson Tatum Under 2.5 Threes (+126) at FanDuel

The Tatum under on threes was a free space for most of the playoffs, as he cashed the under in 11 of his first 12 games. He finally had a real breakout in Game Three and went 5-10 from beyond the arc, but there’s too much value on his under considering his prolonged struggles not to take the bet on Monday.

The Pacers actually did a solid job guarding the three-point line in Game Three, holding them to 16-46 (34.8 percent) despite Tatum’s hot night. They will know that their key to keeping their dreams of reaching the NBA Finals alive is to crowd the three-point line, which could spell more trouble for Boston’s superstar.

Pascal Siakam Under 23.5 Points (-125) at FanDuel

No Haliburton means that Siakam is destined to step up and take a ton of shots, right? Wrong! The former NBA champion with the Toronto Raptors only scored 22 points in Game Three—those points came on 18 shots, which were only one more than he took the game before and five fewer than he attempted in Game One.

Diakam went under this line in 10 of his last 14 games and will get even more attention from the Celtics’ defense without Haliburton on the court. He also isn’t a high-volume three-point shooter and won’t be able to get cheap looks in transition or call his own number off a simple action on the perimeter.

Andrew Nembhard Over 16.5 Points (-111) at FanDuel

Nembhard, a second-round pick in 2022, was having himself quite the playoffs before he erupted for 32 points and nine assists in Game Three without Haliburton on the court. He shot 12-21 (57.1 percent) from the field and 4-7 (557.1 percent) from three and has momentum and nothing to lose entering Monday night.

As we mentioned, the Celtics are going to show lots of attention to Siakam on the defensive end. Nembhard will likely draw one of the game’s best defenders in Jrue Holiday, but his level of comfort with his jump shot he showed throughout the playoffs combined with the desperation of the situation should be enough for him to beat this line.
