Jayson Tatum's impressive performance in the fourth quarter helped the Boston Celtics extend the series to Game 7. The 76ers missed their opportunity to close at home, so now these teams must battle one last time at TD Garden to see who goes on to the Eastern Conference Finals.

For today's same game parlay, I have chosen four players who will have significant impacts. I have also modified their alternate lines to make them safer choices for this parlay. Let's jump to the picks I'm making for 76ers vs Celtics Game 7.

The Parlay: (+120)

Marcus Smart 4+ Assists
Jayson Tatum Under 12.5 Rebounds
Malcolm Brogdon 10+ Points
James Harden Over 4.5 Rebounds

Marcus Smart 4+ Assists

This leg feels like a "smart play" for the longest-tenured Celtics member. Smart has always been the lead playmaker for the team. Over the last 17 games where he has played for at least 30 minutes, his average assists were at 5.6. Smart has recorded four or more assists in these games, all 17 times (100% rate).

In the series vs. the 76ers, Smart ranks second behind Jayson Tatum in potential assists (8.8) and has cashed this leg in five of the six games.


Jayson Tatum Under 12.5 Rebounds

Over the last 14 games where Jayson Tatum played for at least 40 minutes, his average rebounds was 10.0. In those games, he's failed to grab at least 13 rebounds in 12 of these games (86% rate).

The most prominent adjustment head coach Joe Mazzulla made this series came in Game 6, where he inserted Robert Williams over guard Derrick White for an added rim defense presence. As a result, Tatum only saw 11 chances, compared to his 16.7 average combined in the five games.


Malcolm Brogdon 10+ Points

For the last Celtics player's leg, we turn to the six-man and his ability to score the ball in the basket. Over the last 18 games where Brogdon has played for at least 25 minutes off the bench, his average points were at 16.9. In these games, Brogdon has recorded ten or more points in 17 of these (94% rate).

During the series, Brogdon averages 16.7 points per game on 12.7 attempts against the 76ers and has notched at least 10+ points in five of the six games. Coach Mazzulla's trust in him off the bench to play big minutes and close games provides an excellent floor for room to hit his points prop.


James Harden Over 4.5 Rebounds

While the Beard is known for scoring and passing, his rebounding has been excellent alongside Joel Embiid on the 76ers. Over the last 18 games, where he has played for at least 36 minutes, his average rebound was 6.3. In the games with his co-star, Harden has recorded five or more rebounds in 14 games (77% rate).

Against the Celtics, Harden has surprisingly been the team's second-highest rebounder averaging 7.8 boards a game on 14.2 chances. Harden has collected at least five rebounds in all games this series, and I expect that to continue tomorrow.
