Golden State Warriors vs. Boston Celtics Game 2 Player Props

Kevon Looney 2+ 1Q Points/2+ 1Q Rebounds (-120) (Bet $120 to Win $100)

Despite missing the points in game 1, I’m confident Looney has a good bounceback game here. Looney practically only takes high percentage shots, created by playing with the likes of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Andrew Wiggins, this means its very unlikely he goes 0-2 again. Looney has been extremely consistent on the boards as well, just because we cant play it with Luka Doncic anymore doesn't mean there isn't value here! Looney has 3+ 1Q rebounds in 7/7 games since re-entering the starting lineup, with 2+ points in 5/7 games. I also played 2+ Points/3+ Rebounds for +145. 

Al Horford 1+ 3PM/Stephen Curry 2+ 1Q rebounds (+100) (Bet $100 to win $100)

When we bet Horford to have 1+ 3PM last game, I definitely wasn't expecting the 6-8, 26 point performance we got. Horford has been extremely consistent in the playoffs knocking down 1+ 3PM in 14 of 17 postseason games. He’s averaging 2.0 3PM on 4.5 3PA attempts this postseason and I expect him to knock this one down fairly quickly. Curry has also been extremely consistent on the boards, he’s averaging 2.2 1Q rebounds in 17 postseason games and will once again play the full quarter. Curry is coming into this game with 2+ 1Q rebounds in 9 straight games and I expect this streak to continue today. I also like the combo of 2+ 1Q rebounds & 4+ total rebounds at -105. 

Derrick White 8+ Points/Marcus Smart 1+ Steal (-115) (Bet $115 to win $100)

We played this with White 7+ points in the first game, and I’m expecting a similar result here today. Derrick White has been a very dependable role player for the Celtics this offseason. White is averaging 8.8 points in 18 postseason games thus far but has really looked good recently scoring 21, 13, 14, 22, and eight points over his last five games. With Robert Williams in and out of the lineup, I expect both teams to play small for a majority of this game. White’s defense has been ferocious this postseason, I’m expecting another strong workload from the guard. White also should benefit from new baby swag (don't sleep on it!).

Marcus Smart has consistently cashed his steal prop vs Stephen Curry. In his career, he has 1+ steal in 10 of 11 games facing Curry, including 4/4 since 2021. Smart is averaging 1.1 SPG this postseason and has averaged over 1+ steal per game in the playoffs dating back to 2016. He faced some injuries during the Heat series, but considering the fact that he played 40+ minutes in each of his last two games, I think it's safe to say we are gonna see a lot of Marcus Smart today.
