Derrick White to score 15+ points (+100)

After Kristaps Porzingis went down in the first round against Miami, many people were wondering who will be the 3rd scoring option for the Celtics behind Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Derrick White has embraced that role fully and finds himself averaging 17.8 points per game in 14 postseason outings, on 47% efficiency from the field and over 40% from downtown. After scoring 18 points in the closeout game against Cleveland, White continued his stellar play against Indiana by clearing this line 3 times in 4 games, falling short by just 2 points in the one game he failed to do so.

Spreading the wealth is what got the Celtics to this point and I don’t think they’ll divert from that strategy in the NBA Finals against Dallas. This roster has 5 players capable of scoring 20+ points on any given night. Unless either one of Tatum or Brown goes off in the series opener, I am expecting White to continue producing at a high level.

Jrue Holiday to record 1+ steals (-340)

What a luxury the Boston Celtics have with Jrue Holiday in their lineup. The veteran point guard brings championship experience from when he was with the Milwaukee Bucks and his team will benefit greatly from having him around. His main objective in this series will be to slow down Kyrie Irving and make him work as much as possible on the offensive end. Holiday’s defense at the point guard position is unmatched as his pressure alone forces opposing backcourts to commit turnovers. He just wrapped up the series against Indiana, averaging 1.5 steals per game, upping that from 1 per game against Cleveland. So far in this postseason, he’s recorded at least 1 steal in 9 of 14 games, while in his last game against Dallas at TD Garden he finished with 2 steals. I think there’s a good chance he continues that streak in the series opener.

Kristaps Porzingis over 1.5 made threes (-150)

Porzingis last played a Game on April 30 when the Celtics beat the Miami Heat in the first round. He’s had plenty of time to heal up his injured calf and I don’t think it will have a lingering effect on his performance in the NBA Finals. In his brief stint with Boston this postseason, he still averaged 40% efficiency from downtown against Miami, knocking down 2 threes per Game. He is the x-factor for Boston here, and with him they are pretty much unbeatable as he makes up for the one flaw they have which is scoring in the post.

During the regular season, KP was knocking down 37.5% of his three-point attempts, while in the one game against his former team, he went 4-for-8 en route to 24 points. I’m sure he will be extra motivated to do well against the team that traded him away a couple of years ago. Knocking down a pair of threes shouldn’t be too hard for Porzingis.

Luka Doncic over 30.5 points (-108)

I’ve said this in my NBA Finals predictions article – Luka Doncic simply has to put up video Game-like numbers in order for the Mavericks to stay comPetitive in this series. Right now he is in midst of a historic run, leading the NBA postseason in points, rebounds, assists, steals, field goals made, threes made and free throws made. This has never been done entering the NBA Finals before, until now.

The entire gameplan of the Celtics’ defense will almost certainly revolve around containing Doncic, but he still got his numbers in the 2 regular-season games against them, averaging 35 points, 15 rebounds and 12 assists on solid efficiency. Luka has cleared this line in 5 of his last 7 games and it’ll be important for him to set the tone early in this series. Dallas has to keep things tight in the first 2 games and I’m expecting Doncic to lead the way.
