The Boston Celtics will capture their record 18th championship with a win over the Dallas Mavericks in Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday, and we're offering our best Mavericks vs. Celtics player props based on the best NBA odds.

The Dallas Mavericks extended their season with a commanding 122-84 victory over the Boston Celtics in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Friday.

While no team has ever overcome a 3-0 series deficit, the Mavericks might have found a potential advantage in their Game 4 win. Alternatively, did the Celtics conserve energy for Game 5 in front of their home fans?

Game 5 tips off on Monday at 8:30 p.m. ET at TD Garden in Boston (ABC). With a 3-1 lead, the Celtics remain heavy favorites to win the championship, listed as short as -3500 by the NBA Championship odds.

To complement our Mavericks vs. Celtics last-minute predictions, here are our best Mavericks vs. Celtics player props predictions for Monday’s NBA Finals Game 5 matchup.

Mavericks vs. Celtics prop bet predictions for Monday

Jayson Tatum Over 5.5 assists ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Oddsmakers are finally giving us some value again on Jayson Tatum’s assists prop after he’s failed to clear this mark in back-to-back outings and three of the four games in this series.

But Tatum leads all players with an average of 10 potential assists per game, suggesting opportunities exist. He dished out 12 dimes in Game 2, leading to an average of 6.3 assists per game during this series.

BetRivers is behind the market with its -132 value on this Over, as most of our best sports betting apps are trading this ticket at -145 or steeper.  This prop is playable at -140 or better.

Best odds: -132 via BetRivers

Payton Prichard Over 0.5 made 3-pointers ⭐⭐⭐⭐

While projections show value in the Over for Payton Richard’s points prop of 3.5, I prefer needing just one 3-pointer to fall instead.

Prichard has connected on one 3-pointer in two of the four games in this series, firing 15 attempts in the NBA Finals. He attempted 11 total triples in the two blowout contests (Game 1 and Game 4), so I like having that to fall back on if Game 5 ends up lopsided.

With a projection of 1.15 made 3-pointers, a fair price on this Over is -180. I’d recommend this prediction at -130 or better.

Best odds: -120 via DraftKings

Dereck Lively II Under 19.5 points + rebounds + assists ⭐⭐⭐

We have seen Mavericks rookie Dereck Lively II clear this mark in back-to-back outings, scoring 22 points, 25 rebounds, and one assist.

But both performances came with Celtics center Kristaps Porziņģis sidelined. Lively could not crack double-digits in points, rebounds, and assists in either of the first two games when facing Porziņģis.

Given there is a chance Porziņģis returns on Monday, I think this line is inflated. 

FanDuel is one of two shops setting this line at 19.5, as the rest of the market has moved to 18.5. At -120 or better, I’m taking this Under.

Best odds: -115 via FanDuel
