Indiana Pacers vs. Boston Celtics Player Prop: How to Bet on Tyrese Haliburton in Game 1?

INDIANA PACERS VS. BOSTON CELTICS GAME 1 PREDICTION

Entering the season, the Celtics held the second-best odds of winning the Championship.

After two rounds, the Celtics have not been tested.

Boston won their opening series 4-1 against the Miami Heat and followed it up with a 4-1 series win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

There have only been two negatives for the Celtics in the playoffs.

The first is that they have been without Kristaps Porzingis. Porzinis's status remains up in the air for the duration of the playoffs.

The second negative is the Celtics have lost game two in both series on their home floor by double digits.

Boston is a whopping -900 to win the series at DraftKings Sportsbook.

it Indiana took six games to take down the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Pacers lucked out a bit as Giannis Antetokounmpo missed the entire series, while Dame Lillard missed multiple games.

The Pacers fell down 2-0 to the New York Knicks last round but responded with a pair of wins at home.

The two teams split Games 5 and 6, setting up a seventh game in the World's Most Famous arena.

The Pacers not only won game seven but dominated to punch their ticket to the Eastern Conference Finals.

Let's dive into my best prop bet for tonight.

INDIANA PACERS VS. BOSTON CELTICS GAME 1 Player Prop

Tyrese Haliburton has been inconsistent in scoring in the playoffs.

Typically, he has been limited to scoring in the following game after a big game.

Haliburton will receive a lot of attention from this Celtics defense, which forces the ball out of his hands early in possessions.

Boston will have a strong defensive game plan tonight, keeping the all-star under this number.
