The Golden State Warriors were able to tie things up on the road as the Boston Celtics continue to desperately search for help to stop Stephen Curry who is coming off a 43-point double-double performance in Game 4.
If Boston finds an answer, they will surprise many as road underdogs and will need to find much more offense in a hurry. Our same game parlay will focus on continued defensive intensity and points coming to come at a premium for both squads.
Al Horford Over 7.5 Rebounds (-135)
It is no surprise at all that this has been an extremely defensive series, which has resulted in low-scoring contests. Three times in this series, one team has been held to 100 points or less. That number is almost 11 points lower than the scoring rate both teams averaged in the regular season.
Boston’s Al Horford has seen fewer minutes as of late, but his efficiency on both sides of the floor has remained the same. For this contest his rebounding total is set at 7.5, which appears to be a little low.
Horford has exceeded 7.5 boards in 13 of his last 17 games while averaging 9.5 throughout that stretch. Look for much of the same in this spot as the Celtics continue to make life difficult on any Warrior not named Stephen Curry.
Andrew Wiggins Under 26.5 PTS + REB + AST (-120)
Andrew Wiggins has been great thus far this postseason for Golden State. He’s averaging 16.0 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game. He’s shooting 47% from the floor and attempting 12.2 shots per contest.
While overs on many of Wiggins’ props have been profitable this postseason, his combined points, rebounds, assists total is set very high in Game 5 at 26.5.
It is important to consider how many minutes Wiggins has played — 40-plus over his past two. Breaking down his efficiency and scoring numbers, his scoring has really decreased later on in games putting up one, five and most recently six points in the second half of contests. As fatigue and tighter defense are likely to be prevalent in Game 5, his under for this combined total appears to be a good bet.
Parlay: Al Horford Over 7.5 Rebounds + Andrew Wiggins Under 26.5 Points, Rebounds, Assists Combined = (+225)
