Best NBA Bets Today: Sunday, May 19

Nuggets F Nikola Jokic Over 8.5 Assists (-125)

Jokic averaged 9.0 assists in the regular season, and he should see all the minutes he can handle in Game 7.

He has gone over 8.5 assists in 7 of his last 10 playoff games, and we should see his top performance in this elimination game.

I’m expecting Minnesota to collapse and double-team him when possible, so look for Jokic to be a passer on Sunday.

Where to bet: Nikola Jokic over 8.5 assists | -125 at Bet365
