BOSTON – Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat presents three valuable player props on Wednesday. The player prop with the shortest odds is for the over on Jayson Tatum’s line at 4.5 assists.
Jayson Tatum Assists Prop
- Over 4.5 –154
- Under 4.5 +118
Tatum has gone over 4.5 assists in five consecutive games. In the Boston Celtics 13 playoff games this season, Tatum had five or more assists in 10 of those games.
The Heat rank 29th in assists allowed to guards this season, making Tatum’s -154 odds on legal betting sites valuable to go over again.
Miami Heat Game 1 Player Props
Points props for Bam Adebayo and Max Strus have great value based on their scoring frequency in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Adebayo is averaging 18.1 points per game in the playoffs through 11 games.
Bam Adebayo Points Prop
- Over 17.5 -134
- Under 17.5 +102
Bam has been on a tear as of recently, scoring over 18 points in each of his last three games. Adebayo scored 18 or more points in all four regular season matchups against Boston, including a 30-point game.
The Celtics successfully defended MVP Joel Embiid with double teams in their matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers, but they won’t be able to do the same against the Miami Heat who have shooters in Jimmy Butler and Max Strus.
Max Strus Points Prop
- Over 11.5 -121
- Under 11.5 -108
Max Strus is favored to go over his 11.5-point projection for a sixth consecutive game. Strus has consistently soared over the 11.5 total, averaging 16 points across that five-game scoring stretch.
A parlay of the over for these three player props on legal NBA betting sites would pay out $426 on a $100 bet.
