Thursday's NBA slate of playoff games includes a Game 3 showdown between the Dallas Mavericks and Utah Jazz. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Jazz as a 7-point favorite over the Mavericks with the total sitting at 210 points.
Here's three of the best prop bets for the Mavericks-Jazz game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Mavericks vs Jazz Game 3 Prop Bets
1. Bojan Bogdanovic - Points: Over 21.5 (-102)
Talk about stepping up for the team at the right time. Bojan Bogdanovic averaged just 18.1 points per game in the regular season, yet has put up at least 25 points in each of the first two games of this series. He has shot the ball a combined 35 times already and hasn't even gotten hot from beyond the arc. That may change soon given the fact that Dallas allows opponents to shoot the three ball at a 4.5% higher rate when on the road this season. Bogdanovic has a ton of upside playing in front of the home crowd. Back him to keep his success going.
2. Mike Conley - Points + Assists: Under 17.5 (-104)
If this series has proven anything, it is that the Mavericks know how to shut down opposing point guards. Mike Conley his averaging just 6.5 points and 3 assists through the first two games. It makes a lot of senes given Dallas has allowed the fourth fewest points and sixth-fewest assists to the position all year. Keep in mind Conley only played in 22 minutes on Monday after getting into some early foul trouble. A similar situation could present itself on Thursday night if Jalen Brunson gets off to another hot offensive start. All signs point to the under cashing once again with this prop bet.
3. Reggie Bullock - Made Threes: Over 2.5 (-122)
The Mavericks have been playing well without star player Luka Doncic and the efforts of Reggie Bullock have been a big reason why. Widely regarded as a role player, the 31-year-old has stepped into a larger role and thrived. He has played at least 44 minutes and knocked down 3 three-pointers in each of the first two games of this series. The Jazz are a tough matchup, but just gave up 22 three-pointers to the Mavericks on Monday. Look for head coach Jason Kidd to employ a similar strategy in this one and let Bullock jack up some shots from long range.
