NBA: Finals-Boston Celtics at Dallas Mavericks
Dallas Mavericks vs Boston Celtics top 10 player props for Game 5 on June 17

The Dallas Mavericks will try to keep their championship hopes alive when they face the Boston Celtics in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. Dallas kept its flickering hopes alive by beating the Celtics 122-84 in Game 4. The Mavs know beating the Green Machine two straight times will be tough as the Eastern Conference champs have lost just three times throughout the playoffs.

The Celtics took the humiliating loss in stride and with the right mindset. They know that they are up 3-1 and the Mavericks still have to beat them in three consecutive games to lift the Larry O’Brien Trophy. Jayson Tatum and Co. will be hyped up to get some payback and win the championship.

The moneyline for the Dallas Mavericks is +225 while it is -275 for the Boston Celtics. Dallas is a +6.5 underdog while the host is a -6.5 favorite. Team odds, though, aren’t the only lines fans can bet on. There are also player props that might interest them and spice up their viewing experience.

Top 10 player props for Dallas Mavericks vs Boston Celtics, Game 5

No. 10 - Kyrie Irving to go Under 2.5 3-pointers (-135)

Kyrie Irving is making 1.3 3-pointers out of five attempts per game in the NBA Finals. The Dallas Mavericks star is only 25.0% from that range against the Boston Celtics. His numbers when playing in Boston are nightmarish. “Uncle Drew” went 0-for-8 in Games 1 and 2 on his old playground.

No. 9 - Jrue Holiday to go Over 1.5 3-pointers (-175)

Jrue Holiday has been Boston’s most reliable starter from outside in the championship round, making 43.8% from behind 22 feet. Even in the embarrassing loss to the Mavs a few nights ago, Holiday still hit 2-for-4 shots from deep. He is likely hitting at least two 3-pointers on Monday.

No. 8 - Sam Hauser to go Over 1.5 3-pointers (-115)

Sam Hauser is the Boston Celtics’ deadliest bucket-getter from rainbow distance. The backup forward is making 52.9% of his shots from that range or 2.3 triples per 4.3 attempts per game. Hauser will also get his chance to hoist up 3s with the way the Celtics move the ball against the Dallas Mavericks.

No. 7 - PJ Washington to go Over 1.5 3-pointers (-135)

PJ Washington hit 1-for-8 3-pointers in the first two games of the NBA Finals. Over the last two showdowns between the Boston Celtics and the Dallas Mavericks, he has made 5-of-9 shots from behind the arc. Washington seems to have regained his touch and get more than one trifecta versus Boston.

No. 6 - Al Horford to go Over 6.5 rebounds (-118)

The battle inside the paint will be critical for the Boston Celtics and Dallas Mavericks in Game 5. Al Horford will have the biggest role to play for the Celtics in rebounding with Kristaps Porzingis injured. Horford averaged 7.0 RPG in the first two games. In the last two encounters, that number has dropped to 4.0 RPG. The veteran will be determined to clean the glass for the Celtics to win the championship.

No. 5 - Dereck Lively II to go Over 8.5 rebounds (-122)

Horford’s hob in Boston will be the role Dereck Lively II will play for the Mavericks. In Games 1 and 2, the rookie averaged 6.0 RPG. In his next two games, that figure has spiked to 12.5 RPG. He will have to continue dominating the boards for Dallas to have a chance of staying alive in the series.

No. 4 - Daniel Gafford to go Over 4.5 rebounds (+120)

Daniel Gafford will again start for the Dallas Mavericks and he needs to set the tone on the glass. Gafford has the size and strength to gobble up more than four boards, particularly against an undersized Boston Celtics frontcourt.

No. 3 - Luka Doncic to go Over 41.5 for PTS+REBS (-104)

Luka Doncic has a yeoman’s job to do for the Mavericks against Boston. He will have to score and then help the team’s goal to dominate the boards. “Luka Magic” is likely topping 41.5 for points and rebounds combined.

No. 2 - Jayson Tatum to go Under 36.5 for PTS+REB(-104)

Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum hasn’t had a big scoring night with a prolific rebounding performance. When he struggles to score points, he makes up for it on the glass and vice versa. Boston will ask him to put up buckets which could prevent him from snaring rebounds that will allow him to top this player prop.

No. 1 - Kyrie Irving to go Over 23.5 points (-118)

Kyrie Irving has struggled over the last few years in the playoffs in Boston. In his first two games at TD Garden in the NBA Finals, he scored a total of 28 points. “Uncle Drew” is simply too good of a player to bottle up for long. He may not have a supernova explosion but he is likely getting over 23 points for the Dallas Mavericks.
