NBA Player PrizePicks | May 17
Bam Adebayo Over 35.0 Fantasy Points
Adebayo is an elite per-minute fantasy player and has been a consistent source of points for the Heat all season. Adebayo is not going to play only 35 minutes in the first game of the Eastern Conference Finals, and he is projected for over 40.0 fantasy points tonight. As long as his playing time remains high, he should hit this mark. The Celtics will struggle to contain Adebayo’s athleticism, so expect Adebayo to dominate in the paint and rack up points and rebounds.
Robert Williams Over 7.5 Rebounds
Assuming that Williams is still starting for the Celtics, picking him to grab more than 7.5 rebounds looks like a solid option. He is projected to get 9.2 rebounds in the game, which shows he can be an important player on the boards. Miami is not a great rebounding team, and they are currently 16th in offensive rebounding rate in the playoffs, which means they are giving up a lot of defensive rebounds. Boston is likely to exploit this weakness, and Williams is expected to play a significant role in this strategy. This pick can be risky if Williams is removed from the starting lineup, but it is a chance worth taking if he is still the starting center.
