The Boston Celtics took a 2-1 series lead over the Golden State Warriors, and bettors at FanDuel Sportsbook cashed in on some prop bets including alternate spreads in Boston's 116-100 Game 3 win.

In fact, one FanDuel customer nailed an exact points combo prop bet for an $8,500 win.

Now Game 4 is ahead on Friday, June 10, and Celtics player props and some alternate props are more popular.

If you're looking to wager on Boston, here are three of the best Celtics prop bets to target for bigger payouts heading into Game 4.

Best Celtics Prop Bets

1. Alternative Spread: Boston Celtics -7.5 (+148)

Steph Curry was walking gingerly after Game 3 following a fourth-quarter scrum with Al Horford. At the start of April, the Warriors were 3-9 without Curry this season and 5-16 without him over the past two seasons. Golden State's net rating was minus-7.1 without Curry, which would have ranked bottom quartile of the league. The Warriors' defensive rating without Curry ranked last in the NBA. Bet this now in case news breaks that Curry will miss the game or be limited. Even if Curry plays, he's not going to be 100% and Boston's dominant defense should lead the way again.

2. First Basket / Winner Parlay - Jayson Tatum / Boston (+950)

Go for a big score. Parlay Boston's leading scorer to make the first basket (FG) and Boston to win again.

3. Marcus Smart - 6+ Assists: (+106)

With Curry limited, Smart can go off even more than Game 3 when he scored 24 points and added 7 rebounds and 5 assists as the Celtics' point guard and defensive specialist. Smart had 5 assists in the last two games, although he played just 25 minutes in Game 2. He's had a string of playoff games against Miami and Milwaukee when he had 7, 12, 10, and 7 assists. Six assists looks good for Game 4, and you can score more with 8+ assists at +330 odds.
