Jayson Tatum Props: Can He Knock Off the Nets?

Image default

The Celtics head to Brooklyn to take on the Nets as big favorites, and Jayson Tatum props are one of our favorite looks from tonight’s slate.

Tatum’s unders have been a money-maker all season long, and despite the fact that the Nets are severely undermanned tonight, we’re showing value on his under yet again.

Jason Tatum Props for 2/24

Under 27.5 Points (-110 @ MGM)

Line Movement Notes: Would play to -140; downgrade to half-unit play at 26.5. 

  • On the season, Tatum is averaging 25.7 ppg in 36.1 minutes
  • He’s this number in just 19 of 56 games (34%) and has failed to do so in 7 of the last 9 games
  • On prop results, Tatum is 31-20 (62%) to the under on his closing points prop line
  • Tonight he gets the Nets, who allow the eighth-fewest points to opposing SFs in the league
  • They’ve also been a great target on points props, holding 32 of the 54 (59%) SFs they’ve faced this year under their closing points prop line
  • Jaylen Brown will play tonight, and when he does, Tatum holds a 1-11 record against the top 10 teams (v SFs)
  • He’s played the Nets twice this season, returning totals of 15 and 19 pts, respectively (28.7 mins)

Conclusion

Boston also comes into this one as -9.5-point favorites and a fully healthy squad, so he could have an early short if they can get out to a comfortable lead against this heavily undermanned Nets team
