There are a couple of pivotal Game 4s on Monday night. Boston and Memphis are in almost must-win territory as they face the Bucks and Warriors respectively. The Cs and Grizz are each down 2-1, and Memphis goes into Game 4 with Ja Morant likely sidelined.

Memphis are 10-point underdogs as a result following an explosive offensive performance from the Warriors in Game 3. In what has been a fiercely competitive series to date, the defending champion Bucks are favored by just one point over the Celtics.

Odds as of May 9 at FanDuel Sportsbook

He might not have been top of NBA MVP odds this season, but Giannis Antetokounmpo continues to remind us he’s the best player on the planet. Coming off a big game on Saturday, the reigning Finals MVP has Monday’s highest points line at 30.5.

Poole Party Continues

Despite Gary Payton II’s injury, Jordan Poole has remained on the bench. Jonathan Kuminga is in the starting five in Payton’s spot, but Poole is playing starter’s minutes as the sixth man. Poole is getting ample opportunity to run the offense with an average of 17.7 field goal attempts over the last three games. That ranks among the highest usage players in the second round, and puts him ahead of Klay Thompson and Jaylen Brown.

With Morant expected to be out after his Game 3 injury, Poole could be in for an even bigger role. He will not be a target on defense in the same way. Without Morant, Memphis is lacking in the elite ball handling to really attack Poole.

After a couple of cold shooting nights to end the first round, the former Michigan guard is averaging 26 points per game through three games against the Grizzlies. He has scored 21 or more points in five of his eight playoff games thus far, including 27 on 17 shots in Game 3.

There’s value on Poole to get well into the twenties in scoring once again.

Pick: Jordan Poole over 20.5 points (-110)

Giannis Puts Up Huge Numbers Again

Giannis Antetokounmpo dropped 42, 12 and eight in Game 3. Boston had done well to keep the two-time MVP to being a playmaker in the first two games, but he was far more aggressive in Game 3. We can expect adjustments from Ime Udoka on Monday night as they look to limit Antetokounmpo as a scorer. It would be a massive surprise if he racked up 30 field goal attempts again.

The Greek Freak has been doing it all in this series. His rebounds and assists line is set at 19.5 for Monday night, a mark he’s passed in two of three. He also cruised past that number in two of the last four games against the Bulls. Antetokounmpo is doing more playmaking without Khris Middleton, and he’s been a force to be reckoned with on the boards. His 12.6 rebounds per game in these playoffs is the highest mark of all remaining players.

Giannis the only player ever to display this level of dominance while hitting you with a dad joke running down the court.

Mike Budenholzer has moved away from the three-big line up, which only opens up more rebounding opportunities for Antetokounmpo. We’re likely to see him at the five on occasion on Monday night. His rebounding has been a big factor for the Bucks so far in this series with totals of 13, nine and 12.

The playmaking is dependent on his teammates hitting shots, of course, but after scoring 42 a couple of nights ago, Boston is expected to help more, creating further assist opportunities for the league’s best player. Antetokounmpo could most of the way to this line with rebounds alone – we’re backing the over, even at a relatively short price of -132.

Pick: Giannis Antetokounmpo over 19.5 rebounds and assists (-132)
