Individual Player Analysis

As Golden State travels to take on the Boston Celtics, the Warriors’ leading scorer is Stephen Curry. Through 64 games, Curry is averaging 25 points. On the season, he has surpassed his season average in 45.0% of his games. As Curry gets set to take on the Celtics, he could be in line for a big game as Boston is allowing their opponent’s top scorer to surpass their season average in 51.43% of their games. This figure places them 20nd among NBA defenses. On the other side, Jayson Tatum leads the Celtics in scoring, averaging 26 points across his 76 games. Throughout the season, Tatum has outscored his season average in 47.0% of his outings. Given that Golden State’s defense has struggled to slow down their opponent’s top scorers, Jayson Tatum should be in line for a big performance. So far, the Warriors have allowed their opponent’s top scorer to surpass their season average in 51.61% of their games, giving them a rank of 21st among NBA defenses.

Joe’s Pick to Cover the Spread

Heading into game 4 of the NBA Finals. The Boston Celtics are once again the favorite to pick up the win. In game 3, the Celtics closed the door on any chance of a Warriors comeback, holding Golden State to just 11 points in the 3rd quarter. A key to Boston’s success was their ability to attack the paint, outscoring the Warriors 52-26 inside. For game 4, I recommend taking the Celtics to pick up the win and cover the spread. Look for Boston to continue to get Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum opportunities to drive on Steph Curry. In game 3, this led to some outstanding looks for the Celtics as well as drawing some early fouls on Curry. Question: Did you know that you could be wagering on games at -105 odds instead of -110?
