NBA Finals Game 5 Tips

Dallas Mavericks vs Boston Celtics @ TD Garden

The Dallas Mavericks hit back in Game 4 to score a comfortable 122-84 win. However, punters shouldn’t expect the Celtics to play that poorly again.

They have a great chance of winning the NBA Finals in Game 5 at home, and we think bookmakers aren’t giving them enough respect.

They won the first three games in fine style, and just because the Mavericks showed up offensively in Game 4 doesn’t mean the Celtics have their backs against the wall.

The Celtics limited the Mavericks to totals of 89 and 98 points in the first two games at TD Garden, and the defence could get back to its best after letting one slip away on Saturday.

The sportsbook has the Celtics at –6.5, which has been backed into $1.88. That’s a generous line for the best team in the NBA, and they have the perfect scenario to win the NBA Finals in front of their home crowd.

Jayson Tatum is ready to have a breakout game, and although MVP honours are heading the way of Jaylen Brown, Tatum will want to make his mark on this series.

There is too much depth with the Celtics for the Mavericks to win consecutive games, and we think they get blown out of the water on Tuesday.

Given the money coming for the Celtics –6.5, we’re jumping on the line before it moves higher.

Bet: Boston Celtics –6.5 @ $1.88

Mavericks vs Celtics Game 5 Prop Picks

We’re backing Tatum to score the most points in Game 5, which pays a healthy $4.10.

Tatum has been right around the mark throughout the series, but he hasn’t had an incredible breakout performance.

Game 5 could be his time to shine, and it could be his last time to shine if the Celtics are to prevail at home.

The odds are generous for one of the best scorers in the NBA, and it’s much better value than backing Luka Doncic at $1.73.

Jrue Holiday is a quality rebounder who comes off a couple of below par games. However, we think he bounces back on Tuesday as we’re expecting Dallas to miss a lot of shots.

Holiday is a $1.74 chance to record 6+ rebounds, and that’s good shopping. He notched totals of 8 and 11 boards earlier in the series, so the ability is there.

We expect the Celtics to fire from the outset, so backing them wire-to-wire is worth it. They should want to come out of the blocks well after showing nothing in Game 4, so we’re including the $2.35 in our selections.

They have established big leads many times this series, which adds to our confidence levels for this betting option.

Bet: Tatum top points scorer @ $4.10
