Game 4 of the NBA Finals between the Warriors and Celtics will be Friday night at TD Garden.
With the Celtics holding a 2-1 series lead, NBA odds have them at -225 to win the series.
When it comes to Game 4 specifically, NBA betting lines are not the only option to bet the game. Don’t forget about prop bets, and here are a few to consider.
Winning Margin – Celtics by 1-5 (+400)
In winning Games 1 and 3, the Celtics were buoyed by a balanced scoring attack and strong performances at both ends of the floor from their supporting cast.
On Wednesday, after coughing up an 18-point lead and falling behind by two in the wake of another Warriors dizzying third-quarter run, Boston was able to reassert itself, establishing a double-digit advantage early in the fourth. Costly turnovers by the Warriors in the final frame played a role here, and the momentum built through the third quarter was largely gone.
Game 3 dealt the Warriors a body blow, and while it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Dubs cover, it looks likely that Boston heads back to San Francisco with a 3-1 advantage.
Race to 30 – Warriors (+115)
The Celtics comfortably won the race to 30 in Game 3, the third straight game the prop has been decided in the first quarter (Celtics hold 2-1 edge). Boston’s Jaylen Brown was electric in the opening stanza, his 17 points matching the Celtics record (held by Ray Allen) for most points in a Finals quarter.
From a Warriors’ perspective, Klay Thompson had his best game of the series in Game 3. Expect him to be even more of a factor in the early going of Game 4. Like the first two games, look for this prop to be tightly contested.
