    Understanding Public and Money

    Think of 'Public' as the percentage of people betting on each side and 'Money' as how much money is being bet. When there's a big difference between the 'Public' and 'Money' data, it usually means that the more serious bettors (referred to as 'Sharp Money') are favoring a particular side.

    Larry's Analysis:

    Derrick White has been cold for three straight games, but after Jrue Holiday played 43 minutes in Game 4, I'm expecting White to be a bigger offensive contributor in Game 5. When Boston closed out Miami at home in Game 5, White went off for 25 points despite playing only 29 minutes. Look for White to score at least 14 Wednesday.

    Larry's Analysis:

    Al Horford barely eclipsed this number in Game 1, but hasn't come close the past three games. This game obviously has blowout potential; the 37-year-old Horford could very well play under 30 minutes. Horford, who went 0 for 10 from deep in Cleveland, could get a boost from the home crowd, but with this being another quick turnaround game I still like him to finish Under.

    Bob's Analysis:

    This line continues to rise. Donovan Mitchell is unlikely to play tonight for Cleveland. The line suggests this could be a blowout, so if that happens, the Celtics bench will see an increase in minutes. Payton Pritchard has played 20 minutes, or more, in every game this series and should continue to see those minutes, if not more, tonight. Pritchard has scored 9 points, or more, in three out of four games against Cleveland, averaging 11 points a game.

    Erik's Analysis:

    Tatum will have to stretch to get here. He is under 67% of the time. Add in the fact I do not expect heavy minutes, plus this is a low total for Boston and I’ll go under. Love getting plus money

    Jason's Analysis:

    This series is starting to feel a lot like Boston's first round: Come off lengthy layoff for easy Game 1 win, stink Game 2, re-exert their dominance against an increasingly injured-compromised opponent over five games. They destroyed the Heat in Game 5 at home last round and with the Cavs injury woes mounting and the Celtics smelling blood this could get sideways fast. Boston regularly won by 15+ at home all season long and the Cavs are 1-7 in their last 8 road games with losses by 25, 23, 38, 19 and 21 in there. Boston came a garbage time floater from covering last game and that despite ridiculous shot decisions in the fourth quarter. Not sure Cavs have that fight still left in them

    Bruce's Analysis:

    We suspect that might have been Cleveland's last gasp on Monday, when the Cavs circled the wagons after Donovan Mitchell's late scratch and made enough three-pointers to stay within earshot of the Celtics. But with Mitchell iffy again for tonight along with Jarrett Allen and now Caris LeVert, this looks like the end of the road for the Cavs. It's the same spot the Celtics were in during the first round vs. the Heat, when Boston resoundingly ended the series 118-84. and the Celtics' win margin in their seven playoff Ws to date is 19 ppg. Jayson Tatum (33 points each of last two games) scoring enough to help push Boston over this spread hump. Play Celtics

    Alex's Analysis:

    This is just a gigantic combo line for Jayson Tatum who has failed to eclipse this RA number in 6 of 9 playoff games. With this series shifting back to Boston and the Celtics checking in as 14.5 point favorites, there is some major blowout potential which could lead to a few less minutes for Tatum tonight. Look for the Celtics to close out Cleveland in what should be a low scoring environment with minimal possessions.

    313-225 in Last 538 NBA Player Props Picks
    Alex's Analysis:

    This is a huge scoring prop for Jrue Holiday who is averaging 10.1 PPG in these playoffs and has been held under this number in seven of nine playoff games. Holiday has had back to back games scoring at least 16 points however he has 7/12 three point field goal attempts which is going to be difficult to sustain, especially in a paced down low scoring environment. Holiday logged 43 minutes in Game 4 after failing to eclipse 38 minutes during this playoff run. Holiday played significantly more than both Jaylen Brown and Derrick White which I also don't believe will be the case in Game 5 tonight.
