The Western Conference playoffs continue with Game 2 between the Portland Trail Blazers and Denver Nuggets on Monday night. The spread and odds show the Nuggets as a 2.5-point favorites on FanDuel Sportsbook. Portland won 123-109 in Game 1, and the adjusted series odds show the Trail Blazers -340 and the Nuggets +260 to win the series.

Sports bettors are always attracted to other popular prop bets as the playoffs roll on.

Using props and odds from FanDuel Sportsbook, here are three player prop bets for Game 2 of the Trail Blazers vs Nuggets series.

1. Damian Lillard - Over 7.5 Assists (-108)

Game 1 prop bets were profitable, as Damian Lillard went off for 34 points and made five three-pointers in victory. Lillard also dished out 13 assists in a sensational performance. We'll call for more unselfish play and production in Game 2, and in-play bettors may want to monitor Lillard's late game scoring.

2. Nikola Jokic - Over 11.5 Rebounds (-138)

Nikola Jokic had 34 points, 16 rebounds but just 1 assist for an easy prop bet winner in Game 1. Jokic is a dominating big man, and heavy favorite to win NBA MVP this season. FanDuel Sportsbook has dropped his assist total from 8.5 to 6.5 for Game 2. No longer value, but Jokic should continue to dominate the boards and eclipse his season average.

3. Jusuf Nurkic - Under 14.5 Points (+100)

The Nuggets lacked urgency and had defensive lapses in Game 1. More contested shots and aggressive defense will be on display in Game 2, and Jokic will aim to slow Nurkic after he scored 16 points on 7-of-10 shooting in the series opener.
