We’re coming off of an MLB loss with Konnor Pilkington and James Kaprielian. The latter hit, ending with 3 strikeouts. The former threw 5.2 innings, but he only recorded 2 strikeouts. It’s an extremely surprising rate, but it seemed relatively clear that the Cleveland Guardians wanted Pilkington to throw to contact and deeper into the game rather than chasing strikeouts.

2/2 Power Play – Golden State Warriors vs Boston Celtics
Robert Williams over 6.5 points
We hit the over on Robert Williams at 5.5 in his last game, and we’re going back to the well 1 point higher tonight. There’s always risk involved with Williams because he isn’t a massive part of the offense. With that being said, he takes high-percentage shots, and he only needs a few opportunities to hit at this number.
The Boston Celtics currently lead the series 2-1. Williams played 26 and 24 minutes, scoring 8 points in both wins. In their sole loss, the Celtics big man scored 2 points in only 14 minutes.
Williams is averaging 10.7 points per game at home this season, and he should see around 25 minutes tonight. It’s difficult to fully trust Williams, specifically at this number, because he’ll need to make 4 shots unless he hits a free throw.
Still, Williams comes with plenty of upside, and our SPF Predictor has him scoring roughly 10 points tonight.
Draymond Green over 7 points
Green is in a similar situation to Williams, although his minutes are more locked in. He doesn’t take a ton of shots, and he’s scored 2, 9, and 4 points in this series.
I don’t expect Green to take over this game by any stretch, but he’s a player that generally has the media on his mind. He’s taking quite a bit of heat for struggling in the Finals, and Green posted 9 points in Golden State’s only win thus far.
The Warriors big could see a few extra opportunities in this game, as he looks to force his scoring. Green has the ability to be an efficient scorer, although I’m not expecting that against the Boston Celtics defense.
This is a game that Golden State has to win, and Green is going to take quite a bit more heat if they lose and go down 3-1 in the series.
Although he isn’t a dominant scorer, the SPF Predictor projects Green around 10 points tonight.
Bet Robert Williams over 6.5 points and Draymond Green over 7 points to win 3x
