Please note that betting lines and our daily projections may change throughout the day after this article is published.
Nikola Jokic Over 12.5 Rebounds (-132)
I think this line is just a bit too low.
For the playoffs as a whole, Nikola Jokic is averaging 13.4 rebounds per game. He's snagged an average of 14.0 rebounds per night through three NBA Finals games, although that clip is heavily skewed by a 21-board effort in Game 3.
Over his past seven games, which dates back to the start of the conference finals, Jokic is averaging 14.3 rebounds per night.
Our model has Jokic forecasted for 14.6 rebounds in Game 4. I'm loving this over.
Aaron Gordon Over 0.5 Blocks (-104)
We know Butler is going to have the ball in his hands a lot and will likely lead the Miami Heat in shot attempts, something Butler has done in each of the past two contests after a quiet 14-shot Game 1. That gives Gordon lots of chances to record a block.
Gordon went without a block on Wednesday night, but he'd registered at least one swat in each of his previous five games before Game 3. He's also playing big minutes, logging 36.9 minutes per night over his last 13.
A bouncy defender who is playing hefty minutes and will spend a lot of time guarding Butler, Gordon is a good bet to tally at least one block on Friday.
