As the NBA Finals Game 3 approaches, the excitement for the first basket scorer prop bet is at an all-time high. While it's always difficult to predict, the Miami Heat have a slight edge in this category.
Miami's Bam Adebayo has won a higher percentage of his jump balls and has been the team's best offensive player in the series. Adebayo has taken the team's first field goal attempt in one of the two games and has made the first shot for Miami 22 times this season.
On the other hand, Denver's Jamal Murray has been hot all playoffs long, scoring at least 18 points in all but one game. Murray attempts the first shot for Denver 25 percent of the time this season and has made it 12 times, which is the second highest on the squad.
Ultimately, it's up to the bettor to decide, but Adebayo and Murray are the best options for the first basket scorer prop in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.
