Marcus Smart Under 18.5 Points & Rebounds - 1.86 - 1.75/4 B365

Initially wanted to go for the points-line, but i like the extra room with rebounds here. Allows for a few more combos.

Bucks have done a spectacular job with closing down the paint this series (and last few years), which has made life harder for Smart. He can hit threepointers, but hes very inconsistent.

He had 18 points last game, but entered the 4th Q with only 9 points, and scored 5 quick points while Jaylen Brown was sitting with foul-issues. He also just feasted a few times on Grayson Allen. For me that was an anomaly from Smart, and not a consistent way of getting points.

Hes averaging 5.7 rebounds chances per game this series, and have had 1, 2 and 2 so far.

Slightly scary that the Bucks allow so many open 3s, but imo he would have to hit 3 to go over this line. Hes shot 1 for 6, 1 for 4 and 2 for 3 so far this series.
