NBA Playoff Prop Picks: Celtics vs. Cavaliers Game 4

We crushed the bookie once again in the final game of the Western Conference Finals and with that we should see another big Game 4 tonight between the Cavs and Celtics. I have two more valuable prop picks from Bovada sportsbook that will make you some extra cash tonight!

Jae Crowder O/U 16 ½ points

Jae Crowder is a really good player. He blends in nicely with the Celtics because of the things he does that don’t show up in the box score, but on Game 4, I’m betting against his ox score as well.

Crowder’s offense is always streaky. He can have a game where he nails six threes and drops 25 points and then he has games where he barely shows up on offense.

In this series post Game 1 has been more of the latter. In fact on the road this postseason Crowder has been pretty poor shooting the ball. He owns a 40.5% shooting clip on the road in seven playoff games and since the Bulls series that number has just gotten worse. In his last four road games Crowder is shooting just 35.7%.

It’s not for lack of trying, because he is hoisting shots, but even without Isaiah Thomas Crowder’s assumed increase in shot attempts tonight won’t be enough to get him to 17 or more points. On the road and going against a pissed off Lebron James is going to stifle the C’s offense tonight and Crowder will be just one of the Boston players that suffers.

Kevin Love O/U 31 ½ points and rebounds

Welcome back to our third edition of “How to keep making the sportsbooks look bad,” courtesy of Kevin Love. Love has cashed the over at 30 ½ and 29 ½ in this series and after taking a game off (which we shouldn’t have) I am back to bet the over once again at 31 ½.

Love crushed the Celtics yet again and is proving to be un-guardable. While Lebron will I’m sure be making waves tonight with an over/under of 32.5 points at Bovada, I am betting on Love to have than many points and rebounds tonight.

I would still probably bet the over on this one even at 35 ½, because Love is that good and the Celtics have shown zero ability to stop him in this series, or pretty much ever.

Love is a mismatch for anyone he goes against and if his three-pointer keeps dropping at home tonight, keep making the books pay for keeping his points and rebounds total in the low 30s. So far through six games both regular and postseason against Boston, Love is averaging 37.6 points and rebounds per game.
