The Boston Celtics are looking to bounce back from a tough loss in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Milwaukee Bucks when they host them again on Tuesday night. 

Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and company made just 10 shots from two-point range against Milwukee in Game 1, but will that change in Game 2?

After a low-scoring series opener, here are three player props to consider targeting at WynnBET Sportsbook

Best Prop Bets for Bucks vs. Celtics Game 2

  • Bobby Portis OVER 14.5 Points (-105)
  • Jaylen Brown OVER 22.5 Points (-125)
  • Grant Williams to Make 2+ 3-Pointers (+105)

Bobby Portis OVER 14.5 Points (-105)

We’re going to keep rolling with Bobby Portis’ points prop, as he’s scored 18, 14, 14 and 15 points in four games since Khris Middleton went down with a knee injury. 

Portis is starting and taking way more shots lately and while he didn’t clear this twice against the Bulls, Portis saw 32 minutes and 12 shots in a close Game 1 against Boston. 

The Celtics sold out to try and stop Giannis Antetokounmpo in Game 1, which means there will be more chances for Bobby P to come through in the scoring department. 

Jaylen Brown OVER 22.5 Points (-125)

Jaylen Brown has hovered around this number most of the postseason until his 4-for-13 clunker in Game 1 against the Bucks. 

Brown has gone over 22.5 points two times this postseason, and he’s taken 19, 18, 16, 20 and 13 shots. The volume is there, but Brown has to be more efficient to reach this prop. 

I think this is a bounce-back spot for him and Boston, especially if Brown get his usual usage/minutes tonight. 

Grant Williams to Make 2+ 3-Pointers (+105)

Grant Williams may have to be a key player for Boston in this series, as he played 29 minutes in Game 1 and drilled 2-of-4 shots from beyond the arc. 

The Bucks dared the Celtics to make treys in Game 1, and Boston took 50 shots from beyond the arc. Williams shot 41.1% from 3 in the regular season, and he’s hit multiple 3-pointers in three of his five playoff games.
