3 Best Prop Bets for Hawks vs Heat NBA Playoffs Game 5 on FanDuel Sportsbook (April 26)
Tuesday's NBA slate of Playoff games includes an exciting Game 5 showdown between the Atlanta Hawks and Miami Heat. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Heat as the 7-point home favorites over the Hawks.
Here's three of the best prop bets for the Hawks-Heat game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Hawks vs Heat Player Props
1. Jimmy Butler - Points + Rebounds + Assists: Over 40.5 (-111)
NBA fans tuning into the playoffs have seen that Jimmy Butler becomes a different beast when the season is on the line. He is averaging 30.5 points, 7.8 rebounds and 5.3 assists in this series and is shooting 54.3% from the floor. The absence of Kyle Lowry also means Butler will have the ball in his hand a ton. The Heat have a chance to earn some extra days of rest if they can lock down the series win in front of their home fans. That should motivate Butler to step up once again and destroy a Hawks defense that has posted the fifth-worst defensive efficiency mark in the league this season.
2. Trae Young - Points: Under 25.5 (-110)
Trae Young is certainly capable of pouring in at least 26 points given his regular season average finished at 28.4 points per game. However, the Heat just know how to shut the All-Star guard down. Young has failed to reach this mark in any of the four games in this series and has even posted less than double-digits twice. The Hawks have their backs up against the wall down 3-1, but that doesn't mean Young can suddenly pick apart a defense that owns the fifth-best defensive efficiency mark in the NBA. Miami will be all over Young once again as they try to close this series out at home.
3. Max Strus - Made Threes: Over 3.5 (+114)
Don't look now, but Max Strus has increased his three-point shooting attempt total in every game during this series. That includes a whopping 14 attempts from long range in Game 4. The third-year pro has proven that he is not afraid to shoot the basketball and has now drained at least 4 three-pointers in back-to-back contests. There's a good chance he is able to keep his success going on Tuesday considering Atlanta is tied for the sixth-highest opponent three-point shooting percentage in the NBA (36.3%). Strus should see around 30 minutes in this game, which is more than enough time to cash the over on this prop bet.
