- The Philadelphia 76ers-Miami Heat and Phoenix Suns-Dallas Mavericks series’ are both tied 2-2.
- The Sixers have +140 odds to win, but pairing James Harden props with a Sixers win yields better odds.
- Deandre Ayton’s prop odds can be paired with a PHO win to receive plus money on wagers.
LAS VEGAS – The Philadelphia 76ers face off against the Miami Heat, while the Phoenix Suns are set to take on the Dallas Mavericks.
Both series are currently deadlocked at 2-2 after both Miami and Phoenix jumped out to early 2-0 leads.
James Harden Game 5 Prop Odds
- James Harden To have 20+ Points and PHI To win +221
- James Harden To have 3+ Three-point field goals made and PHI To win +309
James Harden was the key to Philadelphia’s success in Game 4, scoring 31 points on 18 shots, both of which are his playoff high in their respective categories this year.
Harden’s performance in Game 5 will likely be an important aspect of Philadelphia having a shot at taking control of this series in Miami.
As such, it could be prudent for an online sportsbook user to pair Harden’s individual performance with that of the team. The Sixers have +140 odds to win Game 5, but when Harden’s performance is mixed in on a parlay double, longer odds are available.
Particularly of note is the Harden with 3+ three-pointers prop, which pays out well. In Game 4, he scored six three-pointers, but throughout the 2022 Playoffs, he’s only scored 3+ three-pointers one other time.
However, he has never taken fewer than four three-pointers in a playoff game this year, and in the four games of this series so far, he’s taken seven, five, seven and ten three-pointers.
Deandre Ayton Game 5 Prop Odds
- Deandre Ayton To have 11+ Total rebounds and PHO To win +106
- Deandre Ayton To have 20+ Points and PHO To win +152
In the other series, Deandre Ayton of the Phoenix Suns was tipped by Mavericks Head Coach Jason Kidd to be one of the major factors in the series.

“This isn’t Gobert or Whiteside,” Kidd said of Ayton and Javale McGee before Game 1. “These guys can put the ball in the basket.”
Ayton came out of the gates firing, scoring 25 points in Game 1 to go along with eight rebounds.
As the series progressed, however, his rebounding numbers went up and his points per game went down.
In both Game 3 and Game 4, Ayton racked up 11 rebounds but scored less than 20 points.
Phoenix is now at home again. Ayton’s best performance of the series came at home in Game 1, while in Game 2 he only played 18 minutes.
The Suns are -260 favorites to win the game, but either Ayton double parlay gets those odds into plus money territory for NBA betting fans.
The Philadelphia 76ers take on the Miami Heat at 7:30 p.m. ET, while the Phoenix Suns host the Dallas Mavericks at 10:00 p.m. ET.
