Boston Celtics vs Player Special by QuidProQuo
Boston will be hosting Toronto tonight in what is expected to be extremely close, high scoring game. Total is sitting at 208.5 points and home team is 2-point favorite.
As you probably know, Isiah Thomas won't play and that is what makes Jae Crowder one of the best players to target in this game. I don't think there are many, if any, players that are safer in entire slate of the games tonight. If we take a look at his stats, we can see how consistent he is. Since coming back from injury, three weeks ago, he's always in mid-high double digits in scoring, 3-6 rebounds and 3-6 assists. 15, 18, 17, 14, 16, 10, 12, 17 are his points in last 8 games. He might not have highest upside, but consistence is there, for sure.
With Thomas out, Crowder is actually the player that benefits the most. In games without Thomas, he averages 7.5 index points more than projected. His usage goes up by 6% in those games, which is 2nd increase in team, behind Marcus Smart. Toronto is around middle of the pack in defending small forward, so the match-up should be at least decent.
This is essentially one bet divided into two, since I'll put 5 units on total points line and another 5 units on total rebounds line, both overs. There are sportsbooks that offer this as single bet, but betshoot doesn't allow them, so you can use BetVictor to play it like this. Good luck!
