Here's a look at some of the more prominent player props to place your bets on as the action shifts back to TD Garden.

Same-Game Parlay: Boston Celtics vs. Dallas Mavericks Game 5

Kyrie Irving Player Prop Today: UNDER 23.5 Points (-106)

Game 4 was a prime example of Kyrie Irving being able to contribute to a Dallas victory without needing to take over offensively and command a ton of shots. It was a group effort, of course, but Irving only finished with 21 points on 18 attempts to go along with four rebounds and six assists in a 38-point win over the Celtics on Friday. 

It was tied for his fewest attempts of the series, but was just the second time he's exceeded 20 points this round. It was also the second time Irving converted better than 50 percent from the field, as well, as he shot worse than 39 percent in each of the first two outings in Boston.

Putting up huge numbers at home is one thing, but the Mavericks' only hope of stealing another game from the opposition is Irving going scorched earth on the road when he's been doing anything but that. He missed all eight of his 3-point attempts in Games 1 and 2 and actually dropped more points in Game 3 (35) than he did in those two performances combined (28). 

Irving has only exceeded 23.5 points three out of a possible 11 times during these playoffs when suiting up away from the American Airlines Center. This is a generous prop from oddsmakers, but one you shouldn't be falling victim to. 

Derrick White Player Prop Today: OVER 19.5 PTS + AST (-115)

No one on Boston looked particularly great in Game 4. Only two players registered 14 or more points, and one of them was Sam Hauser off the bench. Derrick White had six points and all eight of his shots came from behind the arc, making two, so it was a box score to forget.

Taking that night completely out of the equation, White has otherwise been averaging 16.3 points and 3.7 dimes versus Dallas, beating the 19.5 points plus assists prop not only in the first three games of this series, but also in all games against the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference finals.

White is a far more efficient shooter in his own backyard, nailing 3.7 triples per game at 43.7 percent across 10 playoff matchups at home as opposed to three triples at 35.3 percent in eight on the road. An outburst from deep should get him close enough to connecting on this leg, with his assists getting him over the hump as White had finished with exactly 20 points and assists in five-straight contests prior to Game 4.

Jayson Tatum Player Prop Today: UNDER 27.5 Points (-122)

Tatum has gone over this number just once all series. He's shooting only 36% from the field, and other than that Game 3 explosion has yet to find his rhythm.

Alarmingly, he's missed a ton of easy layups at the hoop, and has looked out of sorts. On top of that, Boston have been so dominant, they don't need their seemingly best player to score 30 points to win the NBA Championship tonight. Tatum can focus on the fundamentals, be a playmaker and pick his spots. So I like his UNDER 27.5 Points in Game 5.

Jaylen Brown Player Prop Today: UNDER 30.5 Points + Rebounds (-102)

Game 5 of the NBA Finals has a chance to devolve into a blowout. Thus, I really like the UNDERS on Boston's star players props.

Brown has surpassed this number just once, in Game 3 versus the Mavericks. With a shared approach to scoring, and Brown grabbing just 5.5 rebounds per game this postseason, he's a great bet to go UNDER 30.5 points and rebounds again tonight.
