Prop Betting Picks
- Nikola Jokic +450
- Jamal Murray +550
- Collin Sexton +700
- Kevin Love +700
- Tristan Thompson +800
There are more options to choose from for this prop bet, but the correct pick is going to come out of this group. Collin Sexton is the key to the Cavaliers offense, and he is going to get the first bucket.
Take Collin Sexton +700 to win this bet.
Top Point Scorer:
- Nikola Jokic +210
- Collin Sexton +330
- Jamal Murray +360
- Kevin Love +600
This prop bet could be interesting. The Nuggets are usually extremely balanced on offense, which could make things interesting. Kevin Love has been in the news for some wrong reasons of late, so look for him to have a big game in this one.
Take Kevin Love to score the most points in a Cavaliers loss.
To Record A Triple-Double:
- Nikola Jokic +550
- Will Barton +6000
- Jamal Murray +10000
- Kevin Love +10000
The only real option here is Nikola Jokic, but he hasn’t exactly been a triple-double machine of late. He always has a chance of making it happen, but he likely won’t need to play a ton in this game.
If you are taking anyone, then “The Joker” is the pick, but it’s best to stay away from this one.
