It’s Thursday, so you know it’s time for another Peter’s Primetime Parlay!
We’re breaking down a four-pick parlay at WynnBET that pays out at +225 odds for Game 2 between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Best NBA Parlay Picks for Celtics vs. Heat Game 2 (+225 Odds)
- Jimmy Butler 20+ Points
- Jayson Tatum 35+ Points, Rebounds and Assists
- Bam Adebayo OVER 6.5 Rebounds
- Miami Heat Moneyline
Jimmy Butler 20+ Points
This is a pretty simple one for Jimmy Butler, as he has scored 20 or more points in all but one game in these playoffs.
Butler dominated Game 1, scoring 41 points, and I think he is in line for another big performance with Derrick White out for the Celtics.
Butler hunted Payton Pritchard in switches in Game 1, and I think that could happen again in Game 2.
Jayson Tatum 35+ Points, Rebounds and Assists
Jayson Tatum has cleared 35+ PRA in all but two of his 12 playoff games, and he’s also done it in five straight.
As long as Tatum is scoring at a decent clip, he’s going to get this number, as he’s averaging 28.3 points, 5.8 rebounds and 6.1 assists per game in the playoffs.
I expect him to push 30 points alone again in Game 2.
Bam Adebayo OVER 6.5 Rebounds
Bam Adebayo has really regressed as a rebounder in the playoffs, as he’s averaging just 7.4 rebounds per game after averaging 10.1 per game in the regular season.
Still, he’s grabbed seven or more boards in seven of his last 10 games, so he should be able to get to this number after grabbing just four boards in Game 1.
Miami Heat Moneyline
I took Miami -3.5 in my NBA Best Bets column, but I’ll play it a little safer and just take the Heat to win on Thursday.
The Heat have been elite as favorites in the playoffs under Spoelstra, as they’ve gone 75-23 straight up in 98 games.
I think Miami beats a shorthanded Celtics team in Game 2.
