ARIEL EPSTEIN: Happy Thursday. I'm the Prop Queen, Ariel Epstein, breaking down tonight in the NBA playoffs. Let's start with the first game, well, first game I'm betting on, which is the second game of tonight. I'm betting the over 10 and 1/2 rebounds plus assists on the Pelicans guard CJ McCollum. Most people would look to his points, I did the entire second half of the season, betting over on McCollum points.

However, rebounds plus assist is a very underrated market. People don't know it exists and I love betting overs in it. McCollum is averaging 13 or more rebounds plus assists against the Phoenix Suns so far. The Suns have allowed for the second most rebounds in the NBA playoffs this season. Give me the over, 10 and 1/2 rebounds plus assists on CJ McCollum.

For the late game, I'm betting the over 4 and 1/2 rebounds on the Dallas Mavericks big man Dwight Powell. Now, Powell does a lot better when Luka Doncic, his guard, is back in the lineup, because with Doncic on the floor, the defense gets even better. You get Doncic driving, you get Powell with the offensive rebounds, dish it back out, et cetera.

Powell has done so well against Utah this year, averaging just under six rebounds per game. In the last 10 games of the regular season, Powell went over 4 and 1/2 rebounds in 9 out of the 10 games, 8 out of the 9 were with Luka Doncic. The last two games Luka has been back on the floor, Powell went over this number in the first game with Luka back.

The second game, well, there was a stat correction and they removed the rebound. He should have had five, ended up with four. Look for the Powell bounce back tonight on the boards, over 4 and 1/2 rebounds for Dwight Powell.

Here's your Prop Queen recap. I'm betting in the over, 10 and 1/2 rebounds plus assists on CJ McCollum. I'm also betting the over, 4 and 1/2 rebounds on Dwight Powell. That's it for me, the Prop Queen, Ariel Epstein here on this NBA playoff Thursday.
