The Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics renew their rivalry on Wednesday night, and there are a bunch of prop plays that I like in this game.
All three of these plays are off the beaten path (not points, rebounds or assists only props), but they do provide some interesting value.
Here are the breakdowns:
Nets vs. Celtics best NBA prop bets today
- Derrick White OVER 0.5 Blocks
- Jayson Tatum OVER 13.5 Rebounds and Assists
- Royce O’Neale OVER 1.5 3-Pointers Made
Derrick White OVER 0.5 Blocks
Derrick White is in the starting lineup for Boston with Marcus Smart out, and he’s been a sneaky great shot blocker for the team this season.
White has picked up a block in 12 straight games without Smart and 16 of his last 17.
Until White misses on this prop, he’s worth a shot to get one block in this matchup.
Jayson Tatum OVER 13.5 Rebounds and Assists
Since the start of the new year, Jayson Tatum is averaging 10.1 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game across 14 contests, and I think he’s undervalued in this prop on Wednesday.
The Brooklyn Nets rank 29th in the NBA in rebounding percentage, and Tatum posted 11 boards and five dimes against them in their last meeting.
With Smart out, the Celtics need Tatum to create more on offense, and he’s answered the call, clearing this line in nine of his last 10 games. This is a value prop in this matchup.
Royce O’Neale OVER 1.5 3-Pointers Made
Royce O’Neale has been money from beyond the arc for the Brooklyn Nets, hitting at least two 3-pointers in nine of his last 14 games.
O’Neale has a bigger role on offense with Kevin Durant out, taking 6.1 shots from 3-point range over his last 14 matchups.
The Nets have really found a solid groove offensively, using their shooting to keep them in games. O’Neale is such a big part of that, especially because he’s a great defender on the other end, so I love him to go OVER this again on Wednesday.
