Jaime Jaquez Jr. | NBA PrizePicks Pick Today

Jaquez and the Heat are up against a formidable Boston team, presenting a particularly tough challenge: Boston’s defense has been great all season, especially in the playoffs, making this a daunting matchup for any player, let alone a rookie. Playoff intensity often stymies rookies, and despite a strong showing in Game 1 from Jaquez, maintaining that level has historically been challenging.

The spread indicates a potentially one-sided game, and Jaquez might see reduced playing time if the game gets out of hand. OddsShopper projects him for 21 points + rebounds + assists, which sits below the PrizePicks projection of 23.5, so there’s some wiggle room there.

Given these factors, the smart money is on Jaquez not hitting his points + rebounds + assists target.

Brandon Ingram | NBA PrizePicks Pick Today

On the flip side, Ingram looks poised to exceed expectations as the Pelicans try to bounce back against the Thunder.

After playing 37 minutes in Game 1, Ingram might play even more in Game 2, with estimates around 38 to 40 minutes as New Orleans fights to even the series. The series may be slipping away, so expect Ingram to be heavily utilized in an all-out effort.

Despite the challenging defensive matchup against Oklahoma City, Ingram’s role as the primary scorer and his ability to contribute across the board make him vital for the Pelicans’ success.

Ingram projects for 34.9 points + rebounds + assists against a PrizePicks projection of 30.5.
