Same Game Parlay odds: +455

Stephen Curry to Score 30+ Points (+170)

There’s no two ways about it – the Warriors will heavily depend on the production of Stephen Curry in this game and that’s fine. Curry has been sensational this season averaging 27.5 points per game, he just dropped 25 in limited minutes on Toronto, in the game prior to that he torched the Knicks for 31 at the Garden carrying Golden State to a 110-99 win. Against the Celtics he showed up big time in the first meeting of the season scoring 33 points on 52% from the field and 54% from downtown. Over his last 4 games against them he’s put up 33, 29, 32 and 34 points, while in the last 9 he’s averaging 31.2 per game. In 6 of those 9 games he’s knocked down 6 threes and has shot 50% of better from downtown 6 times. Yes, the defense of Derrick White and Jrue Holiday will be tough to handle, but I still have faith Curry can be productive in big games. Let’s hope he can start off hot in this one.

Jrue Holiday to Record 2+ Steals (+150)

Holiday’s defensive contributions have been well documented. Together with Derrick White he makes the best defensive backcourt in the NBA which is one of the main reasons why the Celtics have been so successful. Holiday has recorded at least 2 steals in 3 of his last 4 games, tonight’s game is an ideal opportunity to build on that solid run. The Warriors have played one of the fastest paces in the NBA over their last 15 games averaging 102 possessions per game. More possessions naturally means more opportunities for Holiday to snatch a few basketballs from them. Golden State isn’t immune to turnovers, in fact they turn the ball over at the 8th highest rate in the NBA this season at 14.7 per game. That number is slightly up over their last 3 games, I think Holiday is experienced enough to take advantage of that.
