After the Boston Celtics’ dominating performance against the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of the NBA Finals, the idea that they would be on the brink of elimination in Game 6 seemed a far-off notion.
Although the Celtics are 3.5-point favorites according to NBA betting lines, they are still massive underdogs when it comes to NBA championship odds.
While those may be the more popular bets, do not forget about prop bets. Here are a few game props to consider.
Winning Margin: Celtics 6-10 (+360)
While Boston has been less than stellar at home in the postseason (6-5 record), expect the C’s in front of a raucous TD Garden crowd to look more like the team that dominated in Game 3. All of the games in this series have been decided by double digits, the last two by 10 points.
With Golden State only 4-5 on the road in this year’s playoffs, look for the Celtics to bounce back and deliver an improved, more efficient performance. One should expect this game to be relatively close.

Race to 30: Celtics (-175)
Boston, led by a 17-point first quarter from Jaylen Brown, easily won this race in Game 3. In Game 4, leading 28-27, the Celtics had several opportunities to put this prop away but could not score, allowing the Warriors to eke out a win courtesy of a dagger 3-pointer from Jordan Poole.
Golden State comfortably took down this prop in Game 5 at home but now must face a Boston team desperate for a good start in a must-win situation. Buoyed by their wildly supportive fans, the circumstances tilt the scales in favor of the Celtics Thursday evening.
