Today’s Top NBA Player Prop | Heat-Celtics Game 1
Jayson Tatum Prop O/U 10.5 Rebounds
The highest-value NBA player prop on tonight’s board stands out at PointsBet. Jayson Tatum, who averaged only 8.8 rebounds per game in the regular season, has seen his rebounding prop inflated all the way to 10.5. Although he has averaged 10.6 rebounds per game in the postseason, this number is just too high.
NBA Bet Pro projects Tatum for only 9.3 rebounds tonight, which is far more in line with his regular-season production. Tatum averaged only 8.3 rebounds in last year’s Eastern Conference Finals as well. This projection gives the under an expected win rate of 60%.
PointsBet is charging only -140, or 58.3%, for the under. That means bettors are getting a solid chunk of edge. Readers yet to sign up for PointsBet can get five second-chance bets worth up to $50 apiece! Take advantage of that deal to build your bankroll before it disappears.

Marcus Smart Prop O/U 13.5 Points
NBA Bet Pro also recommends fading Marcus Smart. Smart averaged only 11.5 points per game in the regular season and beat this number just once in three starts against the Miami Heat. He is averaging 15.8 points per game in the postseason and averaged 16.6 points per game in last year’s Eastern Conference Finals, which is letting us get this prop at a great price.
Smart is projected for only 12.7 points tonight. Most sportsbooks have the total for this prop set to 13.5, but we can still find the 14.5 at BetRivers. Let’s exploit the misprice and jump on this line before this number moves. Readers eager for more mispriced NBA player props should simply sign up for NBA Bet Pro — new users can even get a one-week free trial of the product!
