Long time NBA fan, have been following the game closely for 21 years now. Joining the Pickswise writing staff for the 2020-21 season. Hopefully we can make some money together! Oh, and I firmly believe Lebron James is not one of the two best basketball players of all time. Yeah, I said it.

NBA on Christmas is one of the biggest days of the regular season and just like every year we’ve got ourselves 5 great matchups to look forward to.

We will be covering all 5 games with same-game parlays, the focus here is on the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks. You can catch that game live on ABC at 2.30 pm ET.

Be sure to also check our predictions on the side and total for the 5-game slate

Let’s dive in!

Jrue Holiday Under 19.5 Points (+100)

Marcus Smart Over 4.5 Rebounds (+120)

Robert Williams Over 9.5 Points (-125)

Parlay odds: +692

Jrue Holiday Under 19.5 Points (+100)

Holiday has been playing really well lately, taking full advantage of the opportunities opening up with the absence of Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo. He’s been averaging 22.9 points over his last 9 games, but with those two back in the mix I think he will return to his normal averages of about 17 points per game which he normally averages. In home games this season he is averaging 15.7 points per game and in 2 games against the Celtics, he’s averaging 18.5 per game on just 34% shooting from the field and 20% from downtown. He will have to go up against Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown, both elite defenders so scoring baskets will be harder than usual.

Marcus Smart Over 4.5 Rebounds (+120)

If the Celtics want to get a positive result at Milwaukee, Smart will have to step up big time. Not only on the offensive end, but also on defense trying to stop Holiday and helping out cleaning the glass. With 2 centers and 3 power forwards all out in quarantine, there will be plenty more opportunities to rebound the ball in this one. Smart has taken advantage of that in the last few games going over 4.5 boards in 3 of his last 5 games.

Milwaukee is currently 9th in pace this season and with them being at home I think they’ll be the ones dictating the tempo here. If the game speeds up that will lead to more shots and more misses and naturally more rebounding opportunities. Smart should get at least 5 here without any major issues. In his last 3 games vs Milwaukee, he has had 5, 6 and 8 rebounds.

Robert Williams Over 9.5 Points (-125)

In 2 games against the Bucks this season he’s averaging 11 points per game on an insane 90% from the field without missing a single free throw. Just like Holiday for the Bucks, Williams has impressed a lot offensively over his last few games, mainly because all of the Celtics big men are out due to covid. He has gone Over 9.5 points in 4 of the last 5 and in his last 2 he scored 21 and 15 points. If the Celtics don’t get any of their big men back from quarantine, there will be plenty of opportunities for Williams to score here.
