Kyrie Irving u24.1 PPG in Finals-110
2.5u
Fading Kyrie against Jrue/White. Line just too high, my favorite bet of the Finals. See X factors article: https://www.actionnetwork.com/nba/nba-finals-preview-kristaps-porzingis-kyrie-irving-are-the-biggest-x-factors
Kristaps Porzingis o15.4 ppg in Finals-110
1u
A bet on his health, and voids under 3g anyway. This projects to barely over 20 minutes. If he gets 25+ like usual this line is too low as key as he is this series See X factors article: https://www.actionnetwork.com/nba/nba-finals-preview-kristaps-porzingis-kyrie-irving-are-the-biggest-x-factors
Celtics 4-1 Finals (+400 CZR)
1u
Finals best bet: Celtics to win but not sweep. 1 unit each on Boston in 5 (+400 czr), Boston in 6 (+500 espn), Boston in 7 (+450 mgm). Gives us an implied -122 on Boston to lose at least once but win the title. Let's go!!

Luka Doncic Finals scoring leader-136

Should be at least -200 Read more explanation: https://www.actionnetwork.com/nba/celtics-vs-mavericks-picks-prediction-nba-finals-series-preview-2024
Jayson Tatum double-double every Finals game+1600
1u
My favorite long shot of the Finals. Has hit in 11/14 playoff games and close in the rest. Postseason numbers would imply this should be closer to +310 for a six game series. Pricing is way off so let’s hope for no blowouts. Read more explanation: https://www.actionnetwork.com/nba/celtics-vs-mavericks-picks-prediction-nba-finals-series-preview-2024
Derrick White Steals Leader - Finals+1800

Tailing @JoeDellera, only 2 back in a goofy unpredictable market. I would make this like +400 max.
Jrue Holiday 5+ Rebounds in Every Game+200

See Twitter. Number feels way off.

Betting Highlights
Favorite Bet of All-Time
Bet the Texans to go from worst to first in the division, and even doubled down with a Will Anderson DROY cherry on top. Joe Flacco CPOY +25000 and Nuggets over Heat +1600 exact outcome were fun, too!
Most Heartbreaking Bet
MVP bets. Tom Brady +1400 in 2021, odds-on favorite in December, but shutout vs. Saints on SNF. Nikola Jokic +900 in 2023, rightful leader all the way, but the moron voters get bored and go with Embiid last minute. Brock Purdy +5000 in 2024, odds-on favorite on Christmas, but the voters are too proud to vote for him or Dak. You're killin' me, Smalls!
