Jayson Tatum vs. Luka Doncic, Who Gets More Points?

It has been an interesting series for Tatum, who looked good after scoring 31 points in Game 3, but average when posting 15 points in Game 4. Not many Celtics players looked good in Game 4, however, so Tatum could fire back as the Celtics’ leader in Game 5.

Critics have been active, stating that Jaylen Brown is the real MVP candidate. That might be true, but Tatum could leave his mark in the biggest game of them all.

“Man, I want everybody to be at their best. I want everybody to contribute. Winning will take care of everything,” Tatum said. “Finals MVP or whatever, a champion is a champion. That’s the goal. I want for my teammates what I want for myself. I want everybody to shine. There’s enough attention for all of us. And so, I want everybody to give us theirs.”

In a Head-to-Head bet, we get a +191 betting line for Tatum to score the most points, which is a much better price than the -313 for Luka Doncic.

Doncic is at short odds because he does most of the scoring for the Mavericks, but I think offense could be limited for the visitors, so take Tatum to take the honors.



Earn a Vacation With Jrue Holiday!

Bettors could add to their vacation kitty with a bet on Jrue Holiday. The Celtics do-everything-man is listed at +112 betting odds to get 12+ rebounds+assists.

I expect him to have a big night on the boards, mostly because I expect the Mavericks shooters to struggle. I envision Doncic and Kyrie Irving putting up a lot of shots and missing, which means Holiday will pick up the scraps.

He scored 11 rebounds in the most recent game at TD Garden, which went along with three assists. Anything close to that number is enough to cash, so start thinking about where your next Holiday will be.


Bang on the Money: Bet on Luka Doncic’s Exact Points

I love going for the big NBA prop bet, and I’m picking Doncic to score exactly 28 points.

Yes, the odds of that happening are slim, but that’s what makes this wager so much fun, and the line at the sportsbook is appealing: +1500.

Doncic scored 27 points in Game 3 and 29 points in Game 4, so I’m just averaging things out and I’m fairly confident that Doncic won’t be scoring much higher than that at TD Garden. It’s risky but take the massive odds available at our sportsbook.


Tatum Parlay Pays Big

Who doesn’t love a same-game parlay bet? Well, we love a same-player parlay, which pays massive odds for Game 5. It centers around Tatum, and although he needs to go close to a triple-double, the stage is set for a big performance.

I’m betting on Jayson Tatum to score 35+ points, 9+ assists, and 14+ total rebounds, which pays around +5000.

It might be a hard ask for Tatum to get 14+ rebounds, but as I mentioned earlier, I expect Dallas to struggle on the offensive end. Tatum wants to make a run for Finals MVP, and putting up these numbers could get it done. He has played well under the bright lights before, and the odds are generous enough to take the risk.
