The Boston Celtics hit the road to take on the Golden State Warriors on the last game of the Tuesday night slate. Even playing on the road and without their defensive leader in Marcus Smart, the Celtics are 2.5-point favorites, per FanDuel Sportsbook.

If you're looking to get a little more creative with your wagering, here are three of the best prop bets for this Celtics-Warriors clash.

Celtics vs Warriors Prop Bets

3. To Score 20+ Points: Kemba Walker (+168)

Kemba Walker has played six games since returning from injury this season, and he hasn't quite looked like himself yet. He's only scored 20-plus points in one of those six. He has recorded at least 19 in three of those six, though. But with Marcus Smart out, look for Walker to take on more of the ball-handling duties for this offense. His minutes are also trending in the right direction, having played at least 27 minutes in back-to-back games after only hitting that mark once in his first four. Likely to see an increased role against a bottom-eight scoring defense, Walker has a great shot to record 20-plus points. The bet being juiced at +168 is just icing on the cake.

2. To Score 30+ Points: Stephen Curry (-110)

While Smart's absence should lead to more offense from Kemba, it also means Stephen Curry could be matched up with the likes of Kemba and Jeff Teague early and often tonight. Needless to say, that could be a disaster for the Celtics defensively. On the season, Curry is just shy of averaging 30.0 PPG when playing at home, putting up 28.0 PPG. He's also reached 30 points in two of his last four games at the Chase Center.

1. To Score 25+ Points: Jaylen Brown (-110)

Picking three overs may seem a tad unrealistic, but this is a matchup between two bottom-12 teams in terms of defensive rating. The fact that Golden State plays at the second-fastest pace in the league also means both teams can be expected to see plenty of offensive opportunities. And few people have been better at converting those into points than Jaylen Brown. Averaging 27.1 PPG, Brown is currently scoring at the eighth-best rate in the entire league. He's also reached at least 25 points in six of his last seven appearances. And in the three games since Jayson Tatum made his return, Brown has recorded at least 25 points twice, never falling below 24 in that time.
