Tonight could see the Golden State Warriors take a further step toward claiming they are one of the best teams in NBA history with another championship, but the Boston Celtics won’t just roll over in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. The Warriors have the momentum after winning two straight games to capture a 3-2 lead in the series, and they won Game 5 even with a poor statistical game from Stephen Curry. The Celtics will look to defend their home court one last time tonight, and OddsShopper is here to be a guide for making picks for an NBA same-game parlay.

Jayson Tatum Over 27.5 Points
One of the most direct paths to the Celtics forcing a Game 7 is Jayson Tatum having a big game, and while his point totals through the Finals have been good, more is expected from him. Tatum has had well-documented issues with scoring in the fourth quarter so far, and that seems like an anomaly more than anything else. Tatum has attempted at least 20 shots in three straight games, and he was efficient in Game 5 as he went 10-of-20 from the floor overall, and that included 5-of-9 from 3-point distance. The NBA Player Prop Bet Stat Projections for Stokastic have Tatum projected for 29.94 points, which is 3.6 points higher than any other player tonight. In addition, Tatum carries an expected win rate of 60% from OddsShopper and a -115 ROI. Even though tonight is Game 6, Tatum still has some regression due for him when driving to the hoop. He’s leading everyone in the series at 15.8 drives per game, and the field goal percentage is still just 33% compared to 48.8% during the regular season.

Draymond Green O/U 7.5 Points
There may not be any wager scarier than points for Draymond Green, but that number isn’t high. However, the ROI is +106, so that will bump up the parlay nicely. Plus, the expected win rate from OddsShopper is 57%, fairly high for a plus-money bet. It has not been the smoothest Finals for Green, as he has scored under 5 points in three of the five contests. Green does have two games over this mark, and if he stays away from taking 3-point attempts (0-for-11 in the Finals), he may have a better chance to hit this number. Boston’s defense is daring him to shoot in many scenarios, and he hasn’t been able to make them pay all that often. With a title on the line in this game, Green could be a bit more aggressive, and even though bettors shouldn’t expect him to go for a ton, the wager is only for 8. He has been shooting in the past two games — 13 total shots — and with the Celtics focused on Stephen Curry, Green will have openings for tear drop shots in the lane and other opportunities. Lastly, the NBA Player Prop Tool for Stokastic has Green projected for 8.3 points, which is relatively high for him.

Andrew Wiggins O/U 17.5 Points
If the Warriors win tonight, there is a strong case for Andrew Wiggins to be the Finals MVP based on the first five games. Not only has he hounded Tatum on the defensive end of the floor an awful lot, but the other aspects of his game have blossomed at the best possible time for Golden State. In his first Finals appearance, he’s averaging 18.4 points, 9.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists, and he’s played exceptional basketball in the past two games. Wiggins has poured in 43 total pints, snagged 29 rebounds and has taken a total of 40 shot attempts. Golden State needs him to continue to play at arguably the highest level he ever has, and he’s turned into one of the most important scoring options on the floor. The Stokastic NBA Prop Tool has Wiggins projected for almost 19 points and the expected win rate from OddsShopper has him at 58%, a wonderful combo.
