Pacers at Celtics 3 Player Props We Love for Game 2

Happy Thursday, everyone! Last night’s matchup between the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Dallas Mavericks was definitely a whirlwind, one that came down to the wire. We’re hoping the same for tonight’s game between the Indiana Pacers and the Boston Celtics, which would make for an exciting evening of basketball!

The Celtics are currently up 1-0 in this series, hoping to get out to a commanding 2-0 lead. Can the Pacers bounce back and even the score tonight?

While we wait to see how this game goes down, we’ve crafted our favorite player props from the matchup, all of which can be found on Underdog. Let’s get into it!

Jayson TatumOver 26.5 Points
Jayson TatumUnder 27.5 Points

Jayson Tatum UNDER 30.5 Points

We took the over on Tatum’s points line in Game 1, and he only hit the over on that line due to overtime. While it’s impossible to project if a game is going into OT, we’re not going to bank on that to give Tatum extra time to score more than 31 points.

He has scored over 31 in three of his past four games, but we think tonight is going to be more about Jaylen Brown and Derrick White, which is why we’re taking the under in this spot.

Jaylen BrownOver 24.5 Points
Jaylen BrownUnder 24.5 Points

Jaylen Brown OVER 25.5 Points

As mentioned above, Brown could easily have a 30-point game tonight. With our projection of Tatum going under his total, we love the over for Brown here, especially since it currently sits at only 25.5 points.

Brown has gone over this point total in 4 of his last 6 playoff games. The 27-year-old shot a whopping 50% from the field in Game 1, and we don't see him slowing down in Game 2.

I'm also banking on the Pacers defense keying on Tatum, so that should mean more open looks for Mr. Brown. Take the Over!

Live player props data coming soon for Pascal Siakam.

Pascal Siakam OVER 3.5 Assists (1.1X Odds Boost!)

We were a bit shocked to see this line so low, especially since Siakam hasn’t had less than 4 assists since May 14th. Siakam is a massive part of this Pacers squad, and while he’s best utilized as a rebounder and a scorer, he can certainly get it done as a facilitator as well.

Tyrese Haliburton might need to score a lot tonight to keep the Pacers in the game, a great reason for us to take Siakam here.
