2022 NBA Playoff predictions, odds, bets: Suns, 76ers


The NBA returns to action on Friday after a day off and Monique, the Action Network’s Queen Parlay, has two player prop bets to share (video above).

For her first selection, Monique looks to the Eastern Conference game between the Miami Heat and the Philadelphia 76ers, a series in which the Heat lead 2-0. In this game, she supports James Harden under 2.5 three-pointers made.

The reasoning ? Miami has proven to be exceptional at defending the arc and has excellent defense overall.

“[The Heat] defensively ranked first in the league in three-point percentage, field goals allowed, field goal percentage and second in total points allowed,” says Monique.

Also, it’s been quite a while since Harden cleared that reference beyond the arc. He hasn’t done so since the Sixers opened their playoff game on April 16 against the Raptors.

So, in a game that’s expected to be very sparsely scored, come under Harden’s three-point score tonight in Game 3.

As for her second game, Monique looks west for Game 3 between the Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns, which puts Dallas up 2-0. In this game, Monique supports Mikal Bridges on 4.5 rebounds.

Although Bridges isn’t normally associated with his bouncy production, the Villanova product clocked big minutes this series and proved to be very active on both sides of the glass.

“In eight straight games, [Bridges] recorded no less than 38 minutes”, explains Monique. “If he continues his intensity and the Mavericks continue to struggle, I think he’ll have plenty of opportunities to clear that number.”

Bettors can find Bridges’ bouncing prop around +115 if they choose to back it at four and a half.
