Sunday's NBA Playoffs slate includes an exciting Game 7 showdown between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat. FanDuel Sportsbook currently lists the Celtics as 2.5-point road favorites over the Heat.
Here are three of the best prop bets for the Celtics-Heat game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Celtics vs Heat Player Props
1. Bam Adebayo - Points: Under 15.5 (-122)
Bam Adebayo is one of the better centers in the NBA, but his offense has been largely inconsistent in the playoffs. He's only averaged 12.9 points over his last seven games, finishing with 10 or fewer five times over that stretch. Furthermore, Adebayo has only scored more than 12 points once in his last four home games. The Heat will need him to be at the top of his game if they hope to advance, but history shows that Adebayo has a knack for coming up short when it counts.
2. Jimmy Butler - Steals: Over 1.5 (-150)
It's hard to find many two-way players than Jimmy Butler, who's leading the 2021-22 NBA Playoffs with 2.1 steals per game. He's recorded multiple steals in 12 of the 16 playoff games he's played so far, which includes a whopping four in Game 6. Whether it's because of his timing or ability to outmuscle the opposition, Butler having at least two steals is always a realistic possibility. There's no reason he can't do it for the fifth time in this series.
3. Jayson Tatum - Threes Made: Under 3.5 (-115)
Jayson Tatum finished Game 6 with four three-pointers on seven attempts, but that hasn't exactly been the norm lately. The 24-year-old has actually finished with the under on this prop in four of the six games this series — including in two of the three games in Miami. The Heat's perimeter defense was solid for the most part on Friday and they'll look to repeat that effort in Game 7, which could give Tatum another tough challenge from the three-point line.
