The Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors, two playoff teams in the East, are set to do battle tonight North of the border.

Let’s take a look at some prop odds for this showdown, courtesy of WynnBET Sportsbook.

3 Best Prop Bets for Celtics vs. Raptors

  • Scottie Barnes OVER 7.5 Rebounds (-130)
  • Marcus Smart OVER 4.5 Rebounds (+100)
  • Pascal Siakam OVER 0.5 Double-Doubles (+135)

Scottie Barnes OVER 7.5 Rebounds (-130)

Barnes could be in for a big night on the glass for Toronto. Boston is without its top four rebounders for this Atlantic Division rivalry. Robert Williams, Jason Tatum, Al Hortford and Jaylen Brown are all expected to miss Monday’s game. Barnes is averaging 7.6 rebounds per game so even an average game puts him over this total. I think that against a depleted Celtics roster, he will shine tonight. 

Marcus Smart OVER 4.5 Rebounds (+100)

Smart is the next logical choice to pick up some of the slack for Boston on the glass. This is not because he is a particularly good rebounder, but rather because he is actually playing tonight. The only player on the team that is healthy and has more rebounds per game is Daniel Theis. But he is averaging less than 15 minutes a game. Smart is averaging around four boards per game, but there will be a lot of opportunities tonight. 

Pascal Siakam to Record a Double-Double (+135)

From a scoring perspective, Siakam is a lock to put up at least ten points. The last time he failed to do so was an eight points game against Brooklyn back in February. It was one of only two times Siakam scored less than 10 points since the end of November. However, he has just four double-doubles this month with an average of 7.6 rebounds per game. With most of the frontcourt injured for Boston, I Think Siakam earns his first double-double since March 20.
