3 Best Prop Bets for Celtics vs Hawks Game 3 on April 21 (Derrick White Stays Hot for C's)


The Boston Celtics and Atlanta Hawks resume their playoff series in Game 3 on Friday night in Atlanta. The Celtics have dominated the series so far, winning both of the first two games by 13 points apiece. Can Atlanta bounce back at home in Game 3? Or will Boston continue to roll?

Here are three of the best prop bets for Celtics-Hawks Game 3, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Celtics vs Hawks Game 3 Player Props

1. Derrick White - Players Points: Over 15.5 (-128)

White is having an incredible start to the series so far. After netting 24 points on 7-of-13 shooting in Game 1, he was even better in Game 2 with 26 points on 11-of-16 shooting. This isn't a fluke, either, as White ended the regular season on fire as well. He's now averaging 16.8 points on 50% shooting over his last 12 games, scoring at least 16 points in eight of those contests. Back White to stay hot for the C's, especially after averaging 36 minutes per game in Games 1 and 2.

2. Clint Capela - Player Rebounds: Under 10.5 (-150)

Capela may have averaged a double-double during the regular season, but he hasn't looked like the same player over the past couple of weeks. He's now gone four straight games without double-digit rebounds, which is tied for his longest streak of the season. The veteran big man has been particularly quiet in the playoffs with just 16 points and 15 rebounds over the first two games combined. He's clearly having a tough time with Boston's bigs (Robert Williams III and Al Horford) and hasn't been able to establish much of a presence in the paint. Expect those issues to continue in Game 3.

3. Jayson Tatum - Player Points: Under 29.5 (-115)

Tatum has been phenomenal for Boston in this series, but the recent trends suggest taking the Under on his points total. For starters, Tatum has failed to reach 30 points in his last four games overall as well as nine straight playoff games. The concern with him is that he hasn't been getting to the foul line in this series, taking just 2 shots so far from the charity stripe. It's hard to get to 30 points without getting a boost from free throws, so he seems headed toward the Under again if that trend doesn't change.
