Today’s Top NBA Player Prop | May 16 Playoff Games
Anthony Davis Prop O/U 22.5 Points
The Lakers will likely need some big-time production from Anthony Davis if they want to keep things close with the Nuggets tonight. Davis averaged 25.9 points per game in the regular season but is averaging only 21.2 points per game in the postseason.
NBA Bet Pro expects Davis to bounce back in the scoring column. The tool projects him for 24.1 points tonight, much more in line with his regular-season averages. Davis scored 23 points at home against Denver back in October but only 22 points against them on the road.
Let’s attack this NBA player prop at BetMGM. With the implied odds there set to only 53.5%, below the expected win rate of 56%, you’re getting a considerable chunk of value relative. If you’re yet to sign up at BetMGM, you can get first-bet insurance worth up to $1,000!

Bruce Brown Prop O/U 17.5 Points, Rebounds & Assists (PRA)
One other play for Bruce Brown stands out with more +EV, but only subscribers to NBA Bet Pro will get access to that pick. But there’s still plenty of value on Brown to go over 17.5 PRA — he is projected for 18.5 PRA tonight and has averaged 18.1 PRA per game in the postseason.
The over has an expected win rate of 53%, per NBA Bet Pro. But the oddsmakers at BetRivers have priced the under at only -108, or 51.9%, giving over backers a solid chunk of value. Several other sharp props are on tonight’s board, and to view them, simply sign up for NBA Bet Pro — new users can even get a one-week free trial of the product!
