Four NBA Playoff games will wrap up the weekend on Sunday. The first matchup of the day between the New York Knicks and Atlanta Hawks are underway, but there are plenty of enticing props for the games that haven’t tipped off yet.

DraftKings Sportsbook has a wide array of prop bets available for the action, and we’ve identified a few lines that stand out. Let’s take a look at some options worth considering.

Andre Drummond O9.5 rebounds (+120)

Drummond is averaging 10.6 rebounds per game against the Phoenix Suns on just 21 minutes per contest and hasn’t fallen short of double digits since Game 1. While Marc Gasol has worked his way back into the rotation, the Los Angeles Lakers’ resurgence on offense has helped Ayton retain significant playing time. Phoenix’s struggles with the Lakers’ size and physicality in the post bodes well for Drummond’s rebounding production. I think he can reach double-digits for a third straight game.

Blake Griffin O4.5 rebounds (+118)

Griffin brought down a playoff-high 5 rebounds in Game 3 of the Brooklyn Nets’ first-round series against the Boston Celtics. Jeff Green’s foot bruise wasn’t enough to get DeAndre Jordan on the court in Game 3, so expect the Nets’ center rotation to be very limited. Griffin will have to split time with only Nic Claxton at center and could spell Kevin Durant at times as a power forward too. Five rebounds aren’t much to ask for from a frontcourt player who’ll likely play 25 minutes or more. He’s reached that mark in 10 of the 15 games he’s played at least 22 minutes in for the Nets.

Luka Doncic O8.5 rebounds (+116)

The third part of this rebound prop special involves the Dallas Mavericks star. Doncic is trying his best to average a triple-double against the Los Angeles Clippers and his rebounding is on the rise so far. He averaged 8 boards per game during the regular season but is averaging 8.6 per contest through three first-round games. He’s hit the over here twice in three games while leading Dallas in rebounds.
