  • All-Star point guard Tyrese Haliburton, who missed Game 3, is a game-time decision for the Pacers
  • Below, see the Celtics vs Pacers Game 4 odds, predictions, player props, and injury reports on May 27

Up 3-0 in the best-of-seven series, the Boston Celtics (75-20, 32-14 away, 49-41-4 ATS) have a chance to close out the 2024 Eastern Conference Final against the Indiana Pacers (55-43, 32-16 home, 52-42-3 ATS) in Game 4 on Monday night at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis (8:10 pm ET).

Without All-Star point guard Tyrese Haliburton in the lineup in Game 3, Indiana was playing inspired, leading by a score of 84-66 in the third quarter before coughing up the entirety of the 18-point lead to lose 114-111. The setback was Indiana’s first at home in the postseason, while Boston improved to a perfect 5-0 on the road in the playoffs.

The Celtics vs Pacers odds for Game 4 once again heavily favor Boston.

Boston Celtics vs Indiana Pacers Odds for Game 4

Team Spread Moneyline Total
Boston Celtics -7.5 (-110) -290 Over 222.5 (-110)
Indiana Pacers +7.5 (-110) +235 Under 222.5 (-110)

The Celtics will enter Game 4 as 7.5-point favorites, which is actually half a point higher than Game 3, despite Indiana showing a great deal of toughness without Haliburton in the lineup. The Pacers are a +235 bet to extend their season at least one more game. The over/under is currently 222.5, which is the same as last game (a 114-111 Boston victory).

On the Western Conference side of the NBA playoff bracket, the Dallas Mavericks are in a similar position as the Celtics, leading the Minnesota Timberwolves three games to none. However, Dallas was the underdog heading into its series, while Boston was a massive favorite to advance to the 2024 NBA Finals.

Regardless of how long the conference finals go, the NBA Finals won’t start until Thursday, June 6.

Celtics vs Pacers Game 4 Injury Reports

The injury reports for Game 4 show Tyrese Haliburton listed as questionable with the hamstring injury that kept him out of Game 3. However, as the player props below will show, oddsmakers clearly believe that the Iowa State product will miss his second straight game: not only is Haliburton off the board, his Indiana teammates all have point totals that are increased compared to the first two games of the series.

On the Boston side, Kristaps Porzingis remains out with a calf injury, which has kept him out since Game 4 against the Miami Heat in the first round. Point guard Jrue Holiday is also on the injury report for Game 4, listed as questionable due to an “illness”. Holiday played 38 minutes in Game 3, scoring 14 points with nine rebounds and three assists.

NBA player props from DraftKings on May 27. 

Tatum’s point total Tatum is sitting at 29.5 for Game 4, four points higher than any other player. Tatum has taken on a heavier scoring load in the first three games against the Pacers, averaging 31.7 PPG in the Eastern Conference Final compared to just 26.8 against the Cavaliers in the second round and 21.8 against the Heat in the first round.

As mentioned, the Pacers player props are priced as if Haliburton will be out. Compared to Game 2,  Nembhard’s point total has increased from 10.5 to 16.5, while Siakam’s has moved from 20.5 to 23.5, McConnell’s from 9.5 to 14.5, and Turner’s has from 16.5 to 17.5.

The assist props for Nembhard and McConnell have also jumped significantly.

Boston Celtics vs Indiana Pacers Game 4 Predictions

The Pacers were the better team for the majority of Game 3 and showed very little drop-off with Haliburton out of the lineup. Indiana’s depth has been one of its best attributes all year, and I expect it to be on display once again in Game 4, whether Haliburton is in uniform or street clothes again.

This young Indiana team might not have enough postseason experience to close out the Celtics, but I love the value on the Pacers to lead at halftime again at +164.

BOS vs IND picks:

  • Pacers first-half moneyline (+164)
  • Tatum under 29.5 points (-100)
