Terry Rozier Under 5 Assists (-114)
“Scary Terry” has been phenomenal for the Celtics during the postseason — but he’s been far less effective when playing away from home. He’s averaged just 2.5 assists per game while on the road this season compared to 3.3 while playing at home, despite playing roughly the same amount of minutes in both situations. His assist numbers have also taken a hit with both Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown returning to full strength: He’s eclipsed the five-assist threshold just once in his past five games.
