Best NBA player prop bets for Wednesday, June 2nd

We go over the lines on DraftKings Sportsbook and pick out our favorite player prop bets you should consider for Wednesday’s four-game NBA slate.

There will be four games on Wednesday’s NBA slate, and tip-off times will range from 7:00 p.m. ET to 10:00 p.m. ET. DraftKings Sportsbook has plenty of prop bets available for each matchup, and several of them stick out from the rest of the pack.

We decided to pick out three plus-money NBA bets you should consider making. This is what we came up with after weighing all the options.

Ben Simmons O7.5 assists (+100)

Simmons struggled with foul trouble in Game 4 and only managed three assists, but he’s still averaging nearly 9 assists per game. The Sixers point guard will have to be aggressive with Joel Embiid (knee) ruled out and should easily surpass the 25 minutes he logged his last time out so that Philly can close out the Wizards. Simmons is averaging 9 assists per game against Washington through six matchups this year.

Trae Young O2.5 three-pointers (+125)

Young hasn’t been spectacular shooting the long ball in the playoffs, but he’s converting at a 36.6% clip while firing 7.5 triples per game. He chucked up 14 shots from beyond the arc and made four for the second time in the series. New York is fearful of letting one of the NBA’s best passers and floater shooters get into the paint, and a quarter of Young’s three-point attempts have been wide open. I like his odds to light ut up in a closeout game if the Knicks are going to sag off him on the perimeter.

Mike Conley O29.5 points, assists, and rebounds (+100)

Conley was a bit of a dud in the Jazz’s Game 4 win against the Grizzlies, but he’s been dominant for most of the series. His point, assist and rebound total was at least 39 in Games 1, 2, and 3. His total was 21 in Game 4 despite only attempting six shots. That’s unlikely to happen to Utah’s second-leading scorer for the second time in a row. Especially in a potential closeout game.
