We continue the NBA action for Thursday, January 25 with the Celtics vs Heat Player Prop Bets, so make sure to check it out! The Boston Celtics travel south to take on the Miami Heat looking for the fourth road victory in a row, while Erik Spoelstra’s side is desperate to avoid the fifth consecutive defeat.

Celtics vs Heat Player Prop Bets – Bam Adebayo Over 35.5 Points, Assists, and Rebounds (-110)

Bam Adebayo is having the best season of his career this year. He averages career-highs in points (21.4), rebounds (10.6), and minutes per game (35.1), while Bam is the second-best assist-maker on the Heat with 4.4 apg.

I like his versatility, which is very appreciated for a big man in today’s NBA. In nine of the previous ten games, Adebayo combined for 36+ points, assists, and rebounds! He did it in each of the past three outings, and I have no doubt he will deliver again on Thursday.

In lone H2H against the Celtics this season, Adebayo combined for 36 PTS, AST, and REB. Boston allows 22.7 ppg, 13.1 rpg, and 4.2 apg to the opposing centers, giving Adebayo a good matchup tonight. I anticipate a tight duel that could go down to the wire and around 40 minutes on the floor for Bam.

Jayson Tatum Under 39.5 Points, Assists, and Rebounds (-117)

Perhaps not a popular bet against one of the best players in the NBA, but I don’t like Tatum’s matchup for the Celtics vs Heat Player Prop Bets. Jayson Tatum rarely explodes against Miami, and we can’t ignore the fact that the Heat have the top 5 defense in the NBA.

In 20 career games against the Heat, Tatum averages 22.5 ppg, 7.4 rpg, and 3.6 apg, which is way below the given line for this bet. The Heat allows 22.8 ppg, 9.6 rpg, and 4.4 apg to the opposing power forwards – another argument on my side.

Tatum logged over 41 minutes on the floor in the previous H2H against Miami and combined for 35 PTS, AST, and REB. He did erupt with 39 points alone in the latest victory over the Mavs but failed to go over 39.5 PTS, AST, and REB in five of six games prior to that win. I am confident the Heat’s defense will impact Tatum’s performance tonight.
