NBA Finals Game 1 Parlay: Our Best Props in Dallas Mavericks vs. Boston Celtics

The NBA Finals have officially arrived! The Dallas Mavericks and Boston Celtics throw down to see who will be crowns champion and hoist the Larry O'Brien Trophy.

Meanwhile, we're locking in a +465 parlay for this series opener.

We're making this SGP because DraftKings is continuing their daily No-Sweat Same Game parlay token for every day of the NBA Playoffs, meaning if we lose, we get our bet back as a bonus! You might have a no-sweat token available on FanDuel as well, but we're getting the best odds at DraftKings.

As mentioned, we are looking at Game 1 matchup of the NBA Finals featuring the Dallas Mavericks vs. Boston Celtics with a parlay that clocks in at +465.

You can find numerous props with an edgeas well as prop projections for 20 players with Dimers Pro, so if you're not keen on this parlay, you're sure to find a value play that's right for you.

Leg 1: Jayson Tatum Over 5.5 Assists (-115)

We'll start off with an assists prop on a player known more for his scoring and rebounding ability. Jayson Tatum gets a projection of 6.8 assists tonight against the Mavericks, clearing his line of 5.5 according to our model. Tatum cleared this in five of nine games over the past playoff series. He's averaged 9.8 potential assists in the postseason, the second-most out of all players remaining, save for Luka Doncic. With Jaylen Brown taking over in games and Kristaps Porzingis returning, Tatum should have plenty of assist opportunities.

Leg 2: Luka Doncic Over 8.5 Assists (-120)

Speaking of the guy with the most potential assists in the playoffs, Luka Doncic to put up at least 9 dimes is our second leg. Only Nikola Jokic averaged a higher potential assists output than Luka's 15.1 per game and by just .4. The main man gets a 10.3 projection from our model in the series opener, and he's cleared this in 12 of 17 games this postseason. He gets a 60.4% probability to go over, presenting a 6.9% edge on this as a single wager as well. For the Mavs to have a chance, they'll need to lean on Luka and let him do what he does best as the maestro of this offense.

Leg 3: Kristaps Porzingis Over 15.5 Points (-120)

Closing out our parlay is the anticipated return of the Celtics big man, Kristaps Porzingis. He hasn't played since he went down with a calf strain in Game 4 of the playoff opener against the Heat. He was a pivotal piece of the Celtics this year, averaging 20.1 PPG during the regular season. That's precisely where he's projected by our model tonight, with a solid 59.2% probability of going over, offering a 6.8% edge against the best odds available for this as a singles play.

Dimers' Expert NBA Picks and Predictions

As well as being your best source for NBA predictions, Dimers also has the latest NBA news, NBA predictions for every game, weekly NBA best bets, and NBA props and NBA trends.

Can I bet on NBA with Dimers?

No. There’s no NBA bet slip on our site because we don’t take any NBA bets ourselves. We’re the friend who gives you the best NBA picks and predictions then tells you where and how to get the best NBA sign up offers at the sportsbooks, so you can throw your NBA bets down. That’s it!

When you click on one of our buttons or links in our NBA content, you’re whisked away to DraftKings, BetMGM, FanDuel, or one of the many other sportsbooks we work with.

Once you get there, you can join up to score a welcome bonus (up to $200!), and then get those NBA bets down for yourself, but you’re betting on the NBA with them, not us. Since you are never betting anything directly with us, we don’t have access to your personal information or sensitive financial info like credit card numbers.

It also means that despite our best efforts to confirm that a sports betting site still has that awesome NBA sign up offer available, the best ones often disappear just as quickly as they appeared. We always take these offers down once we know they’re no longer available. We take our responsibility to provide up to date NBA information very seriously.

Finally, Responsible Gambling is extremely important to us, so please remember that NBA betting should be seen as a form of entertainment - adding to your enjoyment while watching from the couch - not a side hustle or second income stream.

If Dimers doesn't take NBA bets, then how do you make money?

Whenever you join a sportsbook mentioned in our NBA picks and predictions across the website, or use one of our promo codes, we get a small commission for referring you. Don’t worry, though, this doesn’t affect you in any way at all. That’s a fee the sportsbook pays us as a thank-you for sending another NBA bettor their way.

We’re always happy to help our readers troubleshoot any problems. Start with our About Us or Contact Us and if that doesn’t work for you, then you can always send us an email at We’ll do our best to help you figure it out.
