NBA Finals Betting Tips: Game 4
Golden State Warriors at Boston Celtics
Saturday 11am AEST, TD Garden
The Celtics put together an excellent performance in Game 3 to defeat the Warriors by 16 points to bounce back from their Game 2 defeat and go ahead 2-1 in the series. The Celtics have now bounced back from all six losses they’ve been dealt in the post-season, which shows just how resilient they are and how good of a coach they have at their disposal.
Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown both logged 40+ minutes in Game 3 and both were equally as good when combining for 53 points, 15 rebounds and 14 assists. The pair also had a helping hand from Marcus Smart who had a line of 24/7/5, while Al Horford was also influential. For the Warriors, Klay Thompson found his stroke with 25 points and Steph Curry was good with 31 points on 55% shooting.
In injury news, Steph Curry copped a big knock to his leg in the fourth quarter of Game 3 but is expected to be able to play his usual minutes on Saturday. He’s the only one that is under a slight injury cloud at the moment, which is rare to see at this stage in the season.
I mentioned above how the Celtics have bounced back from all six losses they’ve succumbed to in the playoffs to date, and now it’s the Warriors turn to do just that. However, I believe the Celtics are the team with the best upside at the moment and look to have far more options on offence. Unless Steph Curry puts in a superhuman performance on Saturday, then I can see the Celtics registering another win and moving just one win away from being crowned NBA Champions.
Recent DPOY winner Marcus Smart was excellent on both ends of the floor last game and isn’t afraid to let it fly from the best of times. Loving his value to record just 15 points at home in this one.
Marcus Smart 15+ Points ($1.87 Ladbrokes)
Andrew Wiggins has been playing well in the finals to date and enjoys the challenge of taking on the Celtics on the road. He’s recorded 18+ points in each of his last four appearances there and I expect him to do it again on Saturday.
Andrew Wiggins 17+ Points ($1.91 Ladbrokes)
Kevon Looney hasn’t featured a great deal in the finals to date but I expect him to get more minutes in Game 4 to match the Celtics’ size. If that’s the case, then he should have no issue collecting at least eight rebounds.
Kevon Looney 8+ Rebounds ($1.82 Ladbrokes)
