Celtics vs Mavericks player props: Game 3

  • Luka Doncic (Mavericks) | Most 3-pointers made in the game | +180 at FanDuel
  • Luka Doncic (Mavericks) | Over 32.5 points | -113 at FanDuel
  • Al Horford (Celtics) | Over 1.5 3-pointers | -120 at FanDuel

Luka Doncic | Most 3-pointers made in the game | +180 at FanDuel

Let’s break down our first of three Celtics vs Mavericks player props, which is Luka Doncic to make the most 3-pointers in the game.

There is just too much value on Luka at +180 to not be all over this play. Luka and Derrick White finished tied for the most 3-pointers last game, and with the series returning to Dallas, I fully expect the Mavs to put on a show.

I also expect Boston’s role players to regress shooting the ball. It’s a completely different animal trying to shoot at home compared to the road. This Mavs team, whenever they have needed a monster performance in a big game, Luka has been the guy to do it. This is his team, and he will take this team on his back and perform at the highest level in Game 3. If Luka’s body holds up, I don’t see how any other player drains more threes.

Luka Doncic | Over 32.5 points | -113 at FanDuel

Our second prop we are playing is going to be Doncic over points. Luka has been incredible in the NBA Finals so far. Yes, the Mavs are down 0-2 here, but Luka has been doing his job – you can’t really say the same for his role players. Luka has scored 32 and 30 through the first two games, respectively, and has put up some of his best offensive performances at home throughout these playoffs.

On top of that, Luka has averaged 35 points per game against this Celtics team throughout the regular season and playoffs. The big story surrounding Doncic currently has been his health, as he has a long list of injuries he is attempting to play through. However, I don’t believe anything will stop him from playing in this game, and I fully expect him to put up his normal workload and cash his over for us.

Al Horford | Over 1.5 3-pointers | -120 at FanDuel

With Kristaps Porzingis likely seeing limited action due to a reported rare tear in his knee, we’re going to look to Al Horford to cash our last player prop.

I expect a veteran like Al to play a major role in these upcoming road games due to the Porzingis injury, and he should be able to get enough looks to bang in two or three 3-pointers to cash our bet.
