The Brooklyn Nets shut down the Boston Celtics, 104-93 in Game 1 of their NBA Playoffs series. According to NBA Championship odds at FanDuel Sportsbook, the Nets are the favorite and currently +210 to win the NBA title.

But sports bettors are finding more ways to win at FanDuel Sportsbook, and are attracted to other popular prop bets as the playoffs continue.

Using props and odds from FanDuel Sportsbook, here are three of the best prop bets for Game 2 of the Nets-Celtics series.

1. Kevin Durant - Under 27.5 Points (-114)

Brooklyn only made 8-of-34 shots from beyond the arc in Game 1, and the Nets missed their first 10 shots from long range as Boston gave Brooklyn fits defensively. Durant was 1-for-8 and scored 32 points. The Nets will keep firing from outside with Celtics unsung hero Robert Williams impacting the paint with nine blocks and nine rebounds in just 19 minutes in Game 1. Durant can clearly go off, but don't count on 25 shots as the well-coached Celtics adjust and contest Durant more in Game 2.

2. Marcus Smart - Over 13.5 Points (-108)

Celtics PG Marcus Smart held up well in Game 1 to score 17 points while playing nearly 40 minutes. He missed the final three regular season games with a calf injury. Smart takes the big shots in important moments. He's going to get more pull-up 3's off screens in Game 2 and explode to the rim more when the Nets go to a smaller lineup.

3. Alternate Spreads - Boston +4.5 (+178)

The Nets are a 9.5 point favorite in Game 2. Boston hung tough throughout Game 1 and was down just three points midway through the fourth quarter until Kyrie Irving went off and the Nets put the game away. The Celtics' moneyline could be a bit too risky for some bettors, but this is a good compromise.
