Cavaliers vs. Celtics best prop bets: Three picks for Game 5

Derrick White's consistent playoff scoring makes him a reliable bet to exceed 13.5 points in Game 5, boosting the Celtics' chances

With Donovan Mitchell sidelined, Max Strus shoulders more responsibility, likely surpassing his 3.5 assist prop as he adapts to a playmaking role

Al Horford's production hasn't matched his increased minutes, making the under on his 15.5 points + rebounds prop a prudent choice against the Cavaliers' frontcourt

The Celtics, holding a 3-1 series lead, aim to close out the Cavaliers in front of their home crowd, propelled by White's offensive prowess

Mitchell's absence shifts the offensive dynamics for the Cavaliers, emphasizing Strus's playmaking abilities as he steps into a primary role

Horford's struggles to meet his points + rebounds prop underscore the Celtics' reliance on other scoring options, potentially impacting their strategy against the Cavaliers.
