Boston Celtics vs Golden State Warriors Game 6 Prediction
Even though I am confident this will go seven games, Incase it does not, we need to bet on a prop for what could possibly be the final game of the year. The prop we are targeting tonight comes in the form of Gary Payton II, the son of the former hall of fame guard Gary Payton Sr.
He has done his dad's best impression this season, playing outstanding defense. Payton II was in a tough spot in his NBA career and could not seem to find a role on any team. He has found his perfect role now here in Golden State, and he has played it very well. He is in for one thing and one thing only, and that is defense. The Warriors love the energy that Payton plays with, and he will get some spot minutes.
The prop we are taking is going to be his under-on points tonight. I think this is an excellent spot after Payton had a good scoring game. He was in a flow in Game 5, so Steve Kerr almost doubled his minutes, but tonight I expect him to return to his usual role. He should play 12-15 mins and shoot the ball 1-4 times in those minutes. Unless he shoots one hundred percent, I think we can cash this prop with relative ease.
The Warriors will look to give as many minutes possible to Steph and Klay for this close-out game. I love this spot tonight. Let’s stay hot and cash in!
