Wednesday's NBA schedule features 11 games, including an exciting primetime clash between the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics. The Celtics are a 5-point home favorite and the over/under is set at 213 points.

Here's three of the best prop bets for the Heat-Celtics game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Heat vs Celtics Prop Bets Tonight

1. Marcus Smart - Points: Under 13.5 (-122)

Marcus Smart is coming off an impressive 28-point performance against the Toronto Raptors on Monday night. Keep in mind neither Jayson Tatum or Jaylen Brown played in that game, though. Smart had scored single digit points in each of his four games prior to that outburst. He is the main facilitator on offense and is likely going to take less than 10 shots tonight. Not only that, but the Heat allow second-fewest points to opposing point guards on the season (21.18) and boast a top-five defensive efficiency mark. This is going to be a battle between two teams that love to sit back and not push the pace. Back the under.

2. Grant Williams - Points: Over 9.5 (-112)

The injury to big man Robert Williams means that someone is going to have to step up in his place. Third-year pro Grant Williams seems like the perfect candidate given his combination of size and shot-making abilities. The former Tennessee standout has scored at least 10 points in three of the last four games that he has played at least 28 minutes. He's a lock to see that kind of playing time against a Miami team that has lost four of its last five games. Williams is shooting a career-high 47.8% from the floor and 42.8% from beyond the arc this season. Trust him to score on Wednesday night.

3. Al Horford - Rebounds: Under 8.5 (-128)

This number is simply too high. The absence of Williams should boost Al Horford's rebounding opportunities, but he hasn't cashed this over in six of his last seven games. The 35-year-old is averaging only 7.5 boards a night despite playing in 29.0 minutes a game. Williams now has to face a Miami defense that is tied for the second-fewest opponent rebounds allowed in the NBA (49.8). Players like Bam Adebayo and P.J. Tucker should erase any chance Horford has of racking up 9 rebounds. This prop bet will likely drop to 7.5 before tipoff, so getting a wager in now is a smart idea.
