For Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals, the Celtics will have both Al Horford and Marcus Smart back after both missed Game 1. The Celtics will be without G Derrick White in Game 2, however.
As I noted in previous articles, I love using Brian Matthews’ daily article over at Oddschecker that breaks down each player’s consistency. His prop sheet looks for players that have hit their lines in 7 of 10 games. This is based on their consistency per Matthew’s article and also how they performed in this series.
-Jimmy Butler – PRA 40+ (-105 per DraftKings Sportsbook)
-Jason Tatum – PRA 40+ (-145 per DraftKings Sportsbook)
*Point lines from FanDuel Sportsbook below.
-Robert Williams over 8.5 points (+104)
-Payton Pritchard over 8.5 points (-102)
-Jason Tatum over 6.5 rebounds (+104)
-Jimmy Butler over 7.5 rebounds (+100)
-Marcus Smart over 5.5 assists (-118)
As you can see, some of these we are getting at plus money for props these players are hitting (or close to hitting) consistently, per Brian Matthews’ Props Consistency Sheet. As you can see, some of the other prop lines, like Smart assists, Williams points and Pritchard points we are getting for an assist or point lower than what they have been producing.
Since Derrick White is out, I still think Pritchard has a role, even with Smart back. I love Robert Williams’ prop lines too. So here is my favorite bet for tonight. Good luck everyone!
