Best Nikola Jokic Player Props for Game 3 (6/4/23)

With the best odds for each of Nikola Jokic’s prop markets listed above, let’s dive into some best bets for the two-time MVP ahead of Game 3. As the best player remaining in the playoffs, Jokic is trying to guide the Nuggets to their first championship in franchise history. He’s been great so far in the playoffs and the NBA Finals haven’t been much different for him in terms of his dominance. Miami doesn’t have much of a presence down low, so his presence is going to be felt the rest of the series, regardless of whether Denver or Miami wins.

Nikola Jokic Over 28.5 Points

Nikola Jokic has dominated almost every facet of the game against the Miami Heat. He scored 27 points in Game 1 and 41 points in Game 2. This scoring barrage was expected going into the NBA Finals because Miami doesn’t have many quality big men it can throw at Jokic on defense. Jokic has become one of the most dominant big men in the NBA and he’s on a historic playoff pace too. This is also a solid bet to make because of how involved the Denver Nuggets get Jokic throughout the game. Jokic also averages 20.2 points a game against the Heat, so him hitting the over here isn’t that far of a stretch. The Heat want him to score as much as possible because it takes the ball out of the hands of all the other players that can step up in a moment. Jokic will get his because of that strategy by Miami.

Nikola Jokic Over 11.5 Rebounds

This is another prop bet that comes as close to a sure thing as possible. This goes back to the argument of how the Miami Heat can defend Nikola Jokic. They are going to struggle because of their lack of size on the interior and because of that Jokic should be able to get a ton of rebounds throughout the game. Jokic is heads and shoulders bigger than any big man Miami has and can dominate from that perspective. He also averages 11.1 rebounds a game against the Heat for his career so it’s not a stretch for him to hit this over because it would just be one more rebound in the game to hit this over. This is more of a sure bet than Jokic hitting the over in points, so take it if you can. Denver is one of the best rebounding teams in the NBA and Jokic is the leader of that too.

Nikola Jokic Over 1.5 Three Pointers Made

This isn’t an amazing bet at first glance, but still take it. The theory behind it is that it seems like Miami is going to let Jokic score as much as possible, but just won’t let him pass the ball to anyone to get his assist totals up. To hit over this number, he needs to hit just two three pointers and he did that in the last game against the Heat where he also had 41 points in the game as a total. The smart money is that Jokic’s scoring is going to stay steady and continue to stay very high and because of that he’ll have to hit a few three pointers to stay aggressive on offense. Jokic is a stat-line machine and shooting three pointers is no different for him. Another reason to like this bet is because Jokic is shooting 46.9% from the three-point line, so if and when he shoots it it’s most likely going in.
