The NBA playoffs continue on Friday at 8:30 PM ET with the New York Knicks and Indiana Pacers facing off and there is value all across the board with the NBA Player Props Draftkings Pick6

Before we look at who should be in your Pick6 lineup, let’s go over a reminder about how the contest works. 

The goal for participants is to make more correct picks than the other participants in each contest. Winning entries receive a share of the available prizes. In Pick6, participants can build lineups of between 2 and 6 players and compete against participants with the same lineup size. The more picks you include in a lineup, the higher a payout could be.

Jalen Brunson Under 34.5 Points

New York Knicks Jalen Brunson is going to be a popular pick for the over 34.5 points, but don’t fall for the bait, the play is with the under. Brunson in the last game put up 44 points, but in the previous three games, he finished with 29 points or less. Brunson is going to have a solid game, but it’s not going to be a game where he puts up 44 points again. Brunson is going to finish with 26 or 27 points. 

Myles Turner Under 17.5 Points

The Indiana Pacers aren’t going to get a big game from Myles Turner. In three of the last four games, Turner has finished with 16 points or less, and in each of the last two games he has finished under that number. In the last game, Turner finished with 16 points while shooting 6 of his 12 from the field. Turner is going to finish with 13 or 14 points here, and he will finish under the total. 

Aaron Nembhard under 0.5 Steals

Taking steals might not be the sexiest pick, but when there is value, you have to take it. There has been five games so far in this series against the Knicks, and he has a grand total of zero steals. In the last game he finished with 11 points, four assists, two rebounds, one block, and zero steals. Nembhard isn’t going to be much of a factor on defense and will finish under 0.5 steals. 

Alec Burks Over 1.5 Three-Pointers Made

Alec Burks has been lighting it up from deep the last few games and he’s going to continue that success here. In each of his last three games he has hit at least four three-pointers for the Knicks. In the last game he played 23 minutes and finished with 18 points while shooting 5 from 8 from deep. Burks is going to continue to light it up from deep.
