Aron Baynes Over 6.5 Rebounds (-130 at Bovada)

8:30 p.m. ET | ESPN

Baynes has gone over this prop in each of the past two games, and there’s good reason to believe he could make it three in a row Friday. The Cavs have leaned heavily on their big men of late, leaving two of Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson and Larry Nance Jr. on the court for the majority of the game. The Celtics responded by playing Baynes a series-high 29.5 minutes in Game 5, and he averaged 8.75 rebounds per 30 minutes during the regular season, so as long as the Cavs stay big in Game 6, Baynes should play enough to hit the over.
