Nikola Jokic Game 4 Player Props

Nikola Jokic dominated in Game 3, finishing with 32 points, 10 assists, and 21 rebounds. Miami’s lack of size in the frontcourt has proven to be detrimental against the two-time MVP as he has his team just 2 wins away from an NBA championship. Given the odds markets for each of the player props above, let’s check out some best bets for Jokic in this pivotal Game 4 on Friday night.

Nikola Jokic Over 30.5 Points

Jokic has taken over in terms of scoring for the Nuggets. He’s even more reliable in this series scoring than Jamal Murray. In this postseason, Jokic averages 30.5 points per game, so it’s not hard to ask him to hit over his average for the playoffs. Jokic also hit over this number in Game 3 when he scored 32 points. The interior for Miami is not able to do much against him too. Bam Adebayo is a very good player, but he doesn’t have the height or weight to matchup with Jokic across four quarters. The Heat have constantly shifted players on him with Kevin Love and Cody Zeller also seeing time, but neither has had much luck. At this point, Miami has decided to almost let him score regardless and defend everyone else because nothing else has really worked against him. Jokic is going to get his, that’s why this is a great prop bet to make.

Nikola Jokic Over 12.5 Rebounds

Jokic has also been unstoppable from a rebounding perspective against Miami. He had 10, 11, and 21 rebounds in all three games in the Finals so far. Jokic also averages 13.4 rebounds per game in the postseason, so he averages more than the over would be in this game for the entire postseason. Size-wise, Jokic is just bigger than any big man Miami has from Adebayo to Love. Denver as a team is one of the best rebounding teams in the NBA, and Jokic is one of the biggest reasons for that too next to Michael Porter Jr. and Aaron Gordon as well. This is as close to a sure bet as possible because of the size difference mainly. Jokic is a beast down low and no one on Miami can stop him from rebounding. Look for Jokic to get the rebounding numbers with ease in this game.

Nikola Jokic Over 0.5 Blocks

This is a prop bet that seems like a long shot at first glance, but this is actually a decent bet if you look at it. He averages around one block a game for the postseason and can hit over this number pretty easily. Jokic is not known as a rim protector at all, but he can get one block throughout a game. He’s not exactly known as a great defender and that’s a big reason why Jokic ultimately didn’t win the MVP award. In Games 1 and 3 he hit over this number, but didn’t in Game 2, so still the odds are pretty solid that he’ll hit over this number in blocks. The Nuggets have gotten by with a great offense over their defense, but still Jokic can play okay defense when asked to and that’s true in the NBA Finals of all times too.
