Pacers Bounce Back? Best Props to Exploit Celtics at Home

Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals was incredible, and we look at more prop bets for Game 2 on Thursday.

The Celtics came away with an overtime win, which shouldn’t have happened. However, the Pacers could use that as a positive at TD Garden.

We have four of the best Pacers vs Celtics props.


Hidden Gem: Lead Prop Bet Offering Easy Money

Considering the current line is Celtics -9, we’re surprised by the odds available for “Largest lead in the game”.

The current line is 17½ points, and the under pays +110. That’s incredible odds for a game that should be close from the outset.

We’re loving the odds available for this NBA prop bet, and we thought the line would have been around 13½, which we still would have taken.

This is our best prop bet for Game 2, so take the odds available at our sportsbook.



Both Teams to Score Over 100 Points

Bettors often expect better odds than -304 for a prop bet, but the Pacers and Celtics both scoring over 100 points is worth including in parlay bets.

We’re happy to take whatever odds we deem as valuable, and after scoring 133 and 128 points respectively in Game 1, we can’t see the offense dropping off so rapidly for Thursday’s game.

Those scores included overtime, but they scored 117 each prior to that. It should give bettors confidence to include this option to boost parlays.

The game went to overtime because Jaylen Brown made a game-tying three-pointer. He shouldn’t have had a chance after the Pacers turned it over twice in the final seconds.

Welcome to the NBA playoffs. You’ve just got to manage your emotions. Anything can happen,” Brown said. “It’s not over until the final buzzer sounds. … It’s not over until it’s over. We found a way to win the game at the very end.

It would be a shock if they didn’t both score over 100 points. They are two of the best offensive-minded teams in the NBA, and defense is unlikely to feature.


We’re Looking at You, Tyrese

Tyrese Haliburton was having a great Game 1 until he dribbled the ball off his foot in the final minute.

It was the catalyst for losing the game. However, prior to the costly error, he had 25 points on 8-18 shooting.

Having scored 26 and 25 points in the last two games, the offense is starting to heat up for the Pacers’ point guard, who has faced mounting pressure.


His series against the Knicks was poor for the most part, and he often looked like a deer in headlights. However, he has seemingly turned it around, and we’re backing him to have another fine-scoring night.

The line is 20 points, but we’re bumping up the price and taking 22+ points at +144. It’s a value price for a player who is playing aggressively, and the Pacers need him to put up shots.

Based on what we saw on Tuesday, Haliburton has every chance of having a big game in the scoring department.


Can’t Miss! Best Parly Bet Includes Jayson Tatum, Haliburton

Our NBA props have readymade parlays available, and we have one paying around +1000 odds for Game 2.

Jayson Tatum 30+ points, Haliburton 20+ points, Tatum 11+ total rebounds, and Myles Turner 8+ total rebounds.

We expect Tatum to have a double-double, and we have already talked about how well Haliburton is expected to play.

There shouldn’t be too much worry with Tatum and Haliburton scoring at least 30 and 20 points respectively. The rebounding numbers will be harder to hit, but it’s worth the risk.

Turner had 10 rebounds in Game 1 and Tatum had 12. This parlay bet would have cashed in Game 1, so we’re advised to stick with the play.
