Best NBA player prop bets to consider for Heat vs. Celtics in Game 2

Must Read

Game 2 between the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics will take place Wednesday night with the Heat looking to even the series while the Celtics attempt to grab a 2-0 lead at home. The Celtics won the first contest 114-94 behind a triple-double from Jayson Tatum and 22 made triples as a team.

Here’s a look at some of our favorite player prop bets to target for Game 2 Wednesday, with odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Jrue Holiday over 9.5 assists + rebounds (-112)

Holiday’s role on this Celtics team is different than what it has been at previous stops. He’s arguably the team’s best perimeter defender and simply plays within the offense instead of orchestrating it. His usage rate was the lowest its ever been in his career but that doesn’t mean he won’t rack up stats. Holiday averaged 5.5 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game over the last eight contests in the regular season, going over this line five times. He managed 10 assists + rebounds in Game 1, and I think he can get past this line again tonight.

Kristaps Porzingis over 2.5 3-pointers (+110)

The big man hit four triples in Game 1 en route to 18 points. He has a huge height advantage over every Heat player, which helps when he’s able to stretch the floor. Porzingis did get a bit lucky by nailing a few really deep shots, but he should continue to find openings on the perimeter in Game 2. As long as the volume is there, I think he should be able to top this line. Even though Porzingis struggled from deep to close the regular season, this is a great matchup for him.

Bam Adebayo under 9.5 rebounds (-135)

Adebayo has been unable to establish his presence on the boards, and it won’t get much easier in Game 2. The Celtics have great rebounders at every position, which makes Adebayo’s job that much more difficult. He’s gone under this line in five straight games now, and hit the under in three of the four meetings with the Celtics this season including Game 1. I think the Heat big man stays under this mark Wednesday.

Caleb Martin over 7.5 points (-120)

Martin managed just four points in Game 1, going 0-4 from behind the arc in the dismal showing. That’s unacceptable for the Heat, who are in desperate need of offense with Butler and Rozier out. Martin broke out last year against Boston in the playoffs, and he’ll have to at least be more aggressive in this game after Sunday’s dud. While I don’t see him suddenly dropping 30+ points, I think he can easily get to double digits and top this line.
