Top 3 NBA Betting Picks for Friday, May 13 (2022)

by May 13, 2022

Both series have a chance to end tonight, with the Bucks and Warriors up 3-2. The Warriors and Bucks are going up against teams with a lot of youth. That means they have the potential to be great for years to come. Will a team hang in the series long enough to move on to the next round? With the Suns and Mavs tied 3-3, this is one of the best NBA playoffs in a long time. Let us look into tonight’s game. 

DraftKings NBA Playoffs

Milwaukee Bucks Moneyline -125 at Draftkings Sportsbook

The Celtics looked like they were poised to make a playoff run towards the end of the regular season. Giannis Antetokounmpo has put a stop to that. He has been unstoppable throughout this series. In this series, he is averaging 33.6 points per game. The Celtics have been unable to stop him, and they are struggling to shoot the three-ball. Boston will need to make big chances to have a chance at this series. 

Memphis Grizzlies +9  -120 at Draftkings Sportsbook

The Grizzlies have kept this game close all series, excluding one game, and have proven they can beat the Warriors without Ja Morant. Even though they are down 3-2, the Grizzlies are winning the point differential. They average 2.2 points more per game this series than the Warriors. Part of that is because they won by 39 points last game without Morant. The Grizzlies will continue to fight to win this series and keep the game close.

Giannis Antetokounmpo Under 13.5 Rebounds -110 at Draftkings Sportsbook

I think Giannis is why the Bucks win the series, but he has not proven he can get over 13.5 rebounds consistently this series. He had one 18 rebound game and then has not gotten over 13 in any other game in the series. He averaged 11.6 rebounds during the regular season too. That means this is not uncommon for him to be below this number. This bet is a great value play for tonight.
