Let’s dive into my best NBA player prop bets for Sunday, May 5, while you can also check out our NBA pick for Magic-Cavaliers.

Jarrett Allen, CLE, Under 26.5 points + rebound + assists (-112)

Odds available at DraftKings Sportsbook at time of publishing

As of publication, there has yet to be word on whether Jarrett Allen will play in Game 7. He missed the previous 2 contests due to a rib contusion — an injury that can’t feel great. We’ll have to wait and see if Allen will gut it out and try to play in Game 7, but being on the under is a side I want to be on.

Allen has fared well in this series. He is averaging 32 points + rebounds + assists in 4 games of the series. The Magic have experimented with different lineups, including starting Jonathan Isaac, but I expect Wendell Carter to match up against Allen if he does end up suiting up. Donovan Mitchell and Darius Garland have stuffed the stat sheet in the last 2 games without Allen. Mitchell is coming off a 50-point game, while Garland has scored 20+ points in back-to-back games. He was told he needed to be more aggressive and answered the call. In a do-or-die game, if Allen is somewhat limited I would expect him to be a decoy on offense that is primarily looking for offensive rebounds.
