NBA First Basket Prop Pick: De’Andre Hunter, Dejounte Murray

The Atlanta Hawks will host the Boston Celtics in Game 3 of their first-round series on Friday evening. Clint Capela (47% opening tip win-rate) will go up against Al Horford (43% win rate) for the opening tip-off.  Capela has all three opening tip-offs against Horford this season.

In five games between these teams this season, De’Andre Hunter (twice), Dejounte Murray and John Collins have all cashed first basket tickets for the Hawks. Jaylen Brown cashed the lone first basket for the Celtics.

Atlanta is down two games in this series and is desperate need of a win.  I expect the Hawks to come out hot to start the game on Friday.  The books seem to still have this priced as if Horford will win the tip, so there is some clear value on Atlanta players for first basket odds.  I’ll take Hunter and Murray to score first in this matchup.

The Pick:

DraftKings Pick: De’Andre Hunter (+800) | Risk .5 Units

FanDuel Pick: Dejounte Murray (+900) | Risk .5 Units
