Golden State Warriors vs. Dallas Mavericks Player Prop Pick: Will Reggie Bullock Make It Rain in Game 2?

The only thing that can mess up a Friday is dad stress (just like mom stress but different). The kind of stuff we have to think about is crazy. But guess what? I'm right on the cusp of a possible "not that stressful weekend". The girls' soccer games are all manageable. The yard has already been cut so I don't have to even think about that. I've already decided on which beers to get when I hit the spot today so that's done. There's a Rough N Rowdy tonight. The only thing on the "coming up next week" list is the second half of the town league's soccer tryouts (parents are wild so tryouts is high alert time). But the guy running it is a beast so every kid should get placed correctly. What that means for us is I got to use my entire brain for this bet. We're talking the whole thing here. There is no way any book on the planet can hang when we're using our entire brains. This almost feels like cheating.

Here is our player prop pick, predictions, and odds for Friday's game between the Dallas Mavericks vs. Golden State Warriors.

Golden State Warriors vs. Dallas Mavericks Game 2 Prediction

Reggie Bullock Over 2.5 Made Threes (+112) (Bet $100 to Win $112)

*Odds Available at FanDuel at Time of Publishing*

I'm at FanDuel for this one but you can pretty much bet it anywhere. I've seen 2.5 +110 at both DraftKings and BetMGM. Barstool has 2.5 at +111. We're talking pretty much the same number everywhere. The thing is FanDuel has ladders so if we wanted to kick it up a notch it would be easy. At +330, 4+ made threes is in play and if you're thinking about that, then why not consider 5+ for +940. It's all deadly.

Let me fill you in on Reggie Bullock. He's a sharpshooter that can hit a shot from anywhere on the court. He's been doing it for almost a decade now but they still continue to disrespect him whenever they get a chance. The guy went to North Carolina so you know he's legit yet we still see 2.5s for plus money on him. That's crazy.

The thing about Game 1 is even though the Mavericks got smoked, they had a ton of open shots. They just missed. I didn't count, but people are saying they had 40 open looks from three. That's ridiculous when you think about it. They took 48 on the night and only hit 11 (Dinwiddie hit three +240 NBD) so there is room to grow. He's hit at least three threes in every playoff game this season where he's taken at least eight three-point attempts.

We should expect more of the same from Dallas in terms of strategy. If that's the case, I would think Bullock would be one of the main ones getting volume. He went 3-10 in Game 1 so it's not like he was horrible. Teams shot 36 threes per game against Golden State on the season, so that is a preferred way to attack them. I think we're getting a nice discount for the type of game I think will play out. I'm taking this.
