Jayson Tatum Over 5.5 Assists (+120)

Jayson Tatum’s assists prop is set at 5.5, and there’s a compelling case for the over to hit. Statistically, Tatum has been averaging 4.96 assists per game this season, which is just under the line. However, his performance in the last 10 games shows an uptick, with an average of 5.6 assists, indicating an increasing trend in playmaking. Moreover, the last 5 games have seen Tatum averaging 5.0 assists, and with the pressure of the playoffs, his role as a facilitator is likely to expand, especially with the Celtics needing to adjust their offense after a tough Game 2 loss. Narrative-wise, Tatum is known to rise to the occasion, and with the Celtics’ offense relying heavily on his playmaking abilities, it’s reasonable to expect him to exceed his season average and cover the over on assists.

Jayson Tatum Over 0.5 Blocks (-115)

The over on Jayson Tatum’s blocks prop, set at 0.5, is another promising pick. Tatum has been averaging 0.6 blocks per game throughout the season, which already suggests he’s likely to achieve at least one block in the upcoming game. Looking closer at recent performances, Tatum has increased his defensive contributions, averaging 1.0 block over the last 5 games, which is double the prop line. This improvement in defensive stats is crucial as the Celtics aim to tighten their defense against a Cavaliers team that has shown they can exploit weaknesses. Tatum’s ability to contribute defensively will be vital in Game 3, and given his recent form and the high stakes of the playoffs, it’s expected that he will continue to be a presence in the paint and likely record more than 0.5 blocks.
