Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat Game 6 Predictions

PJ Tucker Over 1.5 First Quarter Rebounds (-105) (Bet $105 to Win $100)

Despite the fact that Draftkings eliminated the first quarter market, we still have some options over on Caesars. PJ Tucker was someone I was constantly targeting in parlays with 1+ 1Q rebounds, but I like this number as a straight as well. Tucker has recorded 2+ 1Q rebounds in 3 of 4 games this series, playing 9+ first-quarter minutes in each matchup. Tucker has been extremely consistent in this category this postseason, in a must-win game, I expect one of their main “glue guys’’ to come out energized. I always say PJ Tucker is paid to do three things, play aggressive defense, hustle for rebounds, and shoot corner 3’s, I think we see more of that on display tonight. 

Derrick White Under 0.5 3PM/Celtics ML (+213) (Bet $100 to Win $213)

I’m still waiting for FanDuel to release their alt 3-pointers category, if they end up letting you play under 1.5 3PM then that's gonna be in a lot of parlays. Despite the fact that White is performing well on the offensive side of the ball, his 3-point shooting has been terrible. He’s benefited greatly from Marcus Smart's absence, but he only went 0-2 with Smart back as we saw last game. Even then, Smart only ended up playing limited minutes due to foul trouble, if he plays a full workload then it's likely White will see even less opportunity. White is only averaging 24 minutes per game on 20% 3-point shooting this postseason, he’s having more success driving to the paint and I expect to see more of that today.
