The Milwaukee Bucks-Boston Celtics has been mired in injuries, as Boston is down three starters and has listed two others as questionable for Tuesday’s game.
Not ideal for NBA fans that were hoping for fireworks in this game, but it is ideal for some value in the prop market.
Here’s my favorite play for each team on Valentine’s Day:
Celtics vs. Bucks best NBA prop bets today
- Derrick White OVER 19.5 Points
- Giannis Antetokounpo OVER 5.5 Assists
Derrick White OVER 19.5 Points
Derrick White has been red hot as of late, winning the Eastern Conference Player of the Week this past week.
White has cleared 19.5 points in three of his last five, finishing with exactly 19 in the other two games. Now, the Celtics don’t have Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown or Marcus Smart available on Tuesday night.
That should mean an expanded offensive role for White, and I think we’re getting a value line with this just at 19.5. White is averaging 15.3 shots per game, including a 20-shot game in his last outing.
The Bucks are a good defense, but the volume should be there for White on Tuesday.
Giannis Antetokounpo OVER 5.5 Assists
History could happen on Tuesday in Milwaukee!
Giannis Antetokounmpo is just 11 assists aways from the Bucks’ franchise record, and he’s cleared 5.5 dimes in four straight games, picking up 31 dimes over that stretch.
Boston is usually an elite defensive team, but it’s now missing so many key players that I think Giannis and the Bucks have their way with them.
I love the OVER on Giannis’ assists at plus money.
