The Denver Nuggets are 2-1 up over the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals, and Paul O'Shea is on hand to select his best bets for tonight's game four.
5pts Nikola Jokic (Nuggets) & Bam Adebayo (Heat) Over 24.5 Combined Rebounds 8/5 (William Hill)
2pts Sporting Life Bet Builder 7/2 (Sky Bet)
Tonight we see game four of the NBA Finals from Miami as the Heat play hosts to the Denver Nuggets. Denver recorded a 109-94 in Miami on Wednesday night, to effectively break serve and take a 2-1 lead in the series.
Miami have proven to be a difficult team to trust on the betting front so far in the series and we have been burnt in the last two previews by backing Heat players to cover their points lines.
Tonight, I am going from a different angle and my main pick of the evening is for NIKOLA JOKIC & BAM ADEBAYO TO HAVE OVER 24.5 REBOUNDS COMBINED.
In the previous game, the pair combined for a staggering 38 rebounds in total (Jokic 21, Adebayo 17) as both men looked to dominate the boards for their respective teams.
Over the last four games, the pair have an identical average of 12.4 rebounds each. So even if they both just put in an average performance on the boards, they will be very close to covering the combined line of 24.5. However, I expect them both to perform above them numbers once again and continue the dominance they showed in the previous game as they look to power their teams to victory.
My final pick of the night is the Sporting Life Bet Builder; this is a new regular feature of this column and will be available to back with Sky Bet:
Each of the four players in the Bet Builder covered these lines in their last game and can be backed at 7/2 to do so once again tonight
