3 Best Prop Bets for Celtics vs Hawks Game 6 on April 27 (Ice Trae Stays Hot)
By Tyler Maher
The Boston Celtics and Atlanta Hawks have the NBA slate all to themselves on Thursday night as they square off for Game 6 of their first-round series in Atlanta. The Celtics are looking to bounce back from their devastating fourth-quarter collapse in Boston on Tuesday, while the Hawks will try to force Game 7 with another win.
Here are three of the best prop bets for Celtics-Hawks Game 6, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Celtics vs Hawks Game 6 Player Props
1. Trae Young - Player Points: Over 28.5 (-108)
Young got off to a quiet start in this series but has gotten more comfortable with each passing game. His points total has increased in every game of this series, rising from 16 in Game 1 to 38 in Game 5. He's now topped 30 points in three straight games and is coming off an electrifying performance in Boston that saved Atlanta's season. Bank on another huge scoring night from Young, who roasted the Celtics' defense for 67 points at State Farm Arena in Games 3 and 4 combined.
2. Jayson Tatum - Player Assists: Over 4.5 (-113)
Tatum had a disappointing night on the scoring front in Game 5 with his fewest points of the series (19), but at least he compensated with 8 assists. He's now tallied at least 4 dimes in four straight games, going over this prop in three of those contests. Tatum's been struggling with his shot in this series (43.5 FG%), so look for him to keep his teammates involved tonight, especially if his shooting woes continue.
3. Jayson Tatum - Player Points: Under 30.5 (-115)
Sticking with Tatum, his points prop continues to bet set just a bit too high. As mentioned, his shot's been off this series, especially over the last three games (39.7 FG%, 26.5 3P%). He's now gone under 30 points in four of five games this series and is averaging 26.6 PPG in seven games against Atlanta this season. Tatum's also gone under 30.5 points in 13 of his last 14 playoff games and 17 of his last 19, so back the trends and take the Under here.
