Today we have a one matchup on the slate: Game 7 of 76ers vs. Celtics. We’re looking two key role players for our Sunday afternoon PrizePicks plays.

A quick refresher if you aren’t familiar with PrizePicks: you can combine up to five different player squares to payout up to 10x your entry.

You can do a Flex Play or a Power Play. A Flex Play gives you lesser odds, but you can win money if you do not nail every pick. A Power Play is all-or-nothing.

Here’s how I would approach today’s slate in NBA Playoffs slate.

What is PrizePicks? A daily fantasy operator — meaning they’re available in more states (30) than sports betting is! — PrizePicks offers a unique opportunity for action on player squares in which you parlay two or more plays together.

P.J. Tucker Less Than 4 Rebounds

With the Celtics starting a bigger lineup in Game 6, P.J. Tucker played a series-low 20 minutes and only pulled down two rebounds. There is a chance for a push on this prop, as the line has moved from 4.5 to 4 rebounds. Action Network’s NBA Prop Model has him projected for 3.7 rebounds in Game 7.
During the playoffs, Tucker is averaging 8.5 rebound chances per game, which ranks as the sixth-lowest on the team. He has failed to reach four rebounds in three of his last four games with his minutes trending down. Aside from Tucker, all four other 76ers starters played 40 or more minutes in Game 6. If Tucker plays around 20 minutes again tonight, he is going to have a really tough time topping this rebound projection.

Al Horford More Than 15 Points and Rebounds

Horford played a series-high 39 minutes in Game 6, which resulted in him pulling down a team-high 11 rebounds. He has struggled shooting the ball over the last two games, but Horford has shown upside in this series to score the ball. Horford has scored double-digit points in half of the games played, while averaging 7.2 rebounds per game.
The Celtics made a change to the starting lineup in Game 6 removing Derrick White and adding Robert Williams. They also didn’t play Grant Williams a single minute as they only ran out seven players. In a Game 7 winner-take-all, expect Horford to play as many minutes as he can giving him plenty of opportunity for this over.
