With four games on tap for Saturday's NBA playoff slate, we cover the most intriguing player prop bets on the board.

James Harden Over/Under 34.5 points

We recommended taking a look at 9-1 odds on Harden recording a triple-double in Game 2 against the Utah Jazz. Lo and behold, the Houston Rockets guard went off for 32 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists in the win on Wednesday. However, he figures to have a tougher time on Saturday.

The Jazz ranked No. 2 in defensive efficiency rating during the regular season and have allowed 104.8 points per game at home this year. Harden has struggled in Utah recently, scoring 25 or fewer points in three of his previous four games at Vivint Smart Home Arena.

Luke Kennard Over/Under 14.5 points

One of the Detroit Pistons' few bright spots in their likely sweep at the hands of the Milwaukee Bucks has been Kennard. The second-year shooting guard comes into Game 3 with 15 or more points in each of his previous four outings. Milwaukee has also struggled to guard the perimeter, allowing opposing shooting guards to make more than three attempts from downtown per game. Kennard is red-hot over his recent four-game surge, converting 17 of his 28 attempts from deep.

DeMar DeRozan Over/Under 33.5 points + rebounds + assists

Derrick White stole the show in Game 3 with 36 points for the San Antonio Spurs, but it's DeRozan who's consistently killed the Denver Nuggets so far. His point/rebound/assist total has gone over the listed number in each of the three games this series.

Joe Harris Over/Under 1.5 made three-pointers

Harris finished the regular season as the NBA's top three-point shooter and won the Three-Point Contest to boot, but he's failed to make a single shot from downtown over his previous two games versus the Philadelphia 76ers. However, he's getting looks, as at least half of his attempts in each game this series have come from beyond the arc.

Eric Bledsoe Over/Under 16.5 points

Bledsoe poured in a game-high 27 during the Game 2 win over Detroit on Wednesday. The Bucks guard loves playing the Pistons, as he's scored 17 or more points in five of Milwaukee's six meetings against them this season, including a couple of 20-plus point outings.
