Blake Griffin Under 10 Rebounds -140
In my opinion, Griffin is the most overrated player in the league. Aside from his freakish hops, he contributes next to nothing. He has 0 blocks in 3 games of this series. That's right, 0. He will hit the rare 12 footer but for the most part he is only scoring if he is right at the rim.
His rebound numbers for the first 3 games are 7, 9 and 4. He also played the Grizz 3 times in the regular season with rebound figures of 9, 10 and 6. So Griffin is 0-5-1 against this prop for the season when facing the Grizz.
In game 3, the Grizzlies made the adjustment of having Gasol guard Griffin instead of Z-Bo. Gasol is a few inches taller than Z-Bo and Griffin and I believe this contributed to Griffin's embarrassing rebound total of 4. Gasol did a good job on Griffin in Game 3 and I believe that we will see Gasol on Griffin in Game 4.
2nd Prop Play:
Chris Paul Over 21.5 pts -125
I took this prop in game 1 and lost. I expected Paul to come out aggressive and looking for his shot but he focused on feeding his teammates in game 1. I think Paul realized, in Game 1, that the Clippers best shot to win is with him forcing the issue on offense. He has logged 24 and 29 points in Games 2 and 3. Paul is the only consistent offensive weapon on the Clippers so it is important for him to score if they want to have a chance in this game.
