Best Jimmy Butler Player Props for Game 3 (6/7/23)

Given the best odds for some of the most popular Jimmy Butler player prop markets, let’s dive into some best bets. As arguably the best player in the NBA playoffs this year, Butler has carried the Miami Heat in the playoffs when needed. He’s done everything and has averaged 27 points, 6 assists, and 7 rebounds per game for the postseason. He’s taken on an even bigger role now without Victor Oladipo and Tyler Herro in the lineup too. He’s been such a difference maker for the Heat in the playoffs and he’s the reason why Miami has a chance to win this series. He also does everything for the Heat to try and help them win.

Jimmy Butler Over 25.5 Points

Jimmy Butler started the postseason on a tear with his scoring. Recently, the scoring has slowed down on his end with him scoring 13 points in Game 1 and then 21 points in Game 2. The reasoning with this over is because Miami gained some momentum after winning Game 2 and you should expect Butler to play much better at home. The reasoning here is also because Butler hasn’t truly made his presence felt in the NBA Finals, so he’s bound to have a big game sooner than later and that fits this one with the Heat headed back home. Butler can very easily take over a game in the playoffs on offense and we’ve seen him do it already when he scored 56 points against the Bucks. Keep an eye on a game where Butler wants to take over because we are due.

Jimmy Butler Over 6.5 Assists

Butler has taken over the role of distributor in these playoffs by averaging 6 per game during this postseason stretch for Miami. He’s taken on that load even more when Tyler Herro got injured for the majority of the Heat’s run. The idea behind Butler’s success in passing the ball is because he’s been so good defenses key in on him and leave others wide open, especially three point shooters. Strategically, it’s worked incredibly well for the Heat and you shouldn’t expect that to change anytime soon in this matchup. In the Finals so far, Jimmy Butler has also exceeded this number in both games when he had seven assists in Game 1 and nine assists in Game 2, so it’s fair to expect him to hit over this number yet again in Game 3 and at home. Herro could be back for Game 3, which should only help Butler get his assists up by adding another shooter. Butler does whatever is asked of him and right now that’s run the offense too.

Jimmy Butler Over 1.5 Steals

Jimmy Butler has staked his claim as one of the best two-way players in the entire NBA. It’s been no different in the playoffs with him playing great defense in every round from the opening round on. He averages two steals per game in the playoffs, so it’s not hard to ask him to hit over this number because of that. There is concern because Butler hasn’t hit over this number yet in the Finals, but he might have momentum on his side with the series shifting back to Miami. A Miami Game 3 sets the stage for Butler to have a huge game from a stat perspective. The Heat should play better defense at home too, and the Heat play great on the perimeter defensively, especially when they mix in a zone defense. They force teams to play sloppy, so look for Butler to capitalize on that.
