Indiana Pacers vs. Boston Celtics Prop Pick: Will Pascal Siakam Crash the Glass in Game 1?

We have the first game of the Eastern Conference Finals tonight. The Boston Celtics, who are one of the most dominant teams in the NBA take on an injured ridden Indiana Pacers squad. How will this game play out?

PACERS VS. CELTICS GAME 1 DATE, TIME, AND WHERE TO WATCH

INDIANA PACERS VS. BOSTON CELTICS GAME 1 PREDICTION

I like Pascal Siakam to go under his rebounds line in Game 1 against the Boston Celtics.

Siakam only had six rebounds on 12 rebound chances in his first matchup against Boston with Indiana back in January and has failed to go over 7.5 rebounds in his last six matchups overall with Boston.

He had a tough rebounding matchup last series against the New York Knicks and went under in five of those seven games. Against Boston, who takes a ton of threes, I don’t think he sees as many rebound chances as he’ll need to exceed 7.5 boards.

Additionally, I think there’s huge blowout potential with Boston a ten point home favorite with a huge rest advantage. Siakam is over 7.5 boards in just 35% of losses by 10+ this season and 36% of losses overall. Look for him to stay under in this one.
