3 Best Prop Bets for Jazz vs Mavericks NBA Playoffs Game 5 on FanDuel Sportsbook (April 25)
Monday's NBA slate of Playoff games includes an exciting Game 5 showdown between the Utah Jazz and Dallas Mavericks. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Mavericks as the 3.5-point home favorites over the Jazz.
Here's three of the best prop bets for the Jazz-Mavericks game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Jazz vs Mavericks Player Props
1. Bojan Bogdanovic - Points: Over 18.5 (-116)
Bojan Bogdanovic started off this series with three straight performances of 24-plus points before pouring in just 12 points in Game 4. On the bright side, his 10 shot attempts still ranked as the third-most on the team. The ninth-year pro has made it clear that he is no afraid to shoot the ball and he hasn't even got hot from three-point range yet. It's worth noting that Bogdanovic has cleared this number in nine of his last 13 games against the Mavericks overall. That's a level of consistency worth backing, especially in a game that should be close all the way until the final whistle blows.
2. Dwight Powell - Points + Assists + Rebounds: Under 14.5 (-128)
It's interesting to see this total set at 14.5. Yes, Powell was able to cash the over in Game 4 thanks to 11 points and 7 rebounds. However, he had posted a combined 6 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists in Games 1 through 3. The presence of Rudy Gobert has limited Powell's rebounding opportunities as well as his ability to efficiently knock down layups at the rim. The Jazz have been marvelous at defending opposing centers all season long, allowing the seventh-fewest points and sixth-fewest rebounds to the position. The fact that Powell is not going to see more than 25 minutes in this game makes backing the under a safe bet.
3. Royce O'Neale - Rebounds: Over 5.5 (+112)
Utah's Royce O'Neale has played in at least 31 minutes in every game of this series and posted 6 or more rebounds in three different instances. It makes sense given Dallas is sporting the second-lowest rebound rate during the playoffs (43.5%). The undersized Mavericks' front court has also allowed the sixth-highest defensive rebounding percentage in the NBA this season (79.0%). All signs point to O'Neale being able to keep his momentum going with another solid day on the boards. Grabbing this prop bet at plus odds only makes it that much more enticing.
