NBA Player Props for Thursday June 16

Prop betting expert Stuart Durst gives his top prop bets to consider for NBA Playoffs action on Thursday, June 16. Check out his top play for the hardwood action below.

  • Robert Williams (BOS) Over 6.5 Rebounds/Celtics ML (+115)

Robert Williams (BOS) Over 6.5 Rebounds/Celtics ML (+115)

The biggest thing with Robert Williams is always gonna be his health. When healthy, Boston has been significantly better, and with his minutes increasing over the last couple games it's clear he’s gonna leave it all on the court. With Robert Williams on the court, the Warriors are shooting 56% at the rim, without him they are shooting 80%. It's clear that coach Udoka has incentives to play Robert Williams as much as possible with that knee injury. Williams has recorded 8, 10, and 12 rebounds over his last three games playing 30+ minutes. Williams is a great per minute producer, I expect him to continue to dominate the boards on his home court. 

The Celtics are 7-1 in the playoffs following a loss this postseason and I expect them to build on that record one last time. With their backs against the wall, and the home court advantage, I expect a strong performance from Boston. The Warriors were definitely getting a good whistle at home, but now I expect some tougher calls against guys like Draymond and Wiggins to go the opposite way. The Celtics already have a stellar defense, if they’re allowed to play physically it could be a tough game for the Warriors. When push comes to shove, I’ll trust the Celtics to extend this series.
