To say that the NBA’s Conference Finals have been a runaway train has been an understatement. Even though Games Two and Three of the Eastern and Western Conference Finals have ended with cliffhangers, at the end of the day, the NBA sports betting world is already penciling in the Mavericks and the Celtics as the contestants for the NBA Finals. With both the Mavericks and the Celtics having taken a commanding 3-0 series leads, it’s time to figure out the decisive Game 4 bets on the top PA sports betting apps.

Boston Celtics vs. Indiana Pacers Best Bet: -7.5 | -110 at BetMGM Sportsbook

Of all the NBA teams, the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers have more NBA championships and NBA Finals appearances. Since the Bill Russell days in the 1950s, Bean Town has known nothing but championship success. And despite Indiana’s fierce Game Two and Game Three heroics, Jayson Tatum found a way to stand steadfast and hit the game-winning shots to put Boston one win away from reaching their 23rd NBA Finals appearance. What’s impressive is that this Celtics is proving to have a penchant for coming back from big deficits, and none was bigger than Game 3, in a game that the Pacers had to win.

So, the stage is set for the Celtics to go for the sweep. We can’t argue with BetMGM Sportsbook’s -300 odds for the Celtics to send the Pacers home packing for the summer. Because their backs are against the ropes, they look for the Pacers to claw, scratch, and make it a close game. So, in addition, you might want to hop on the Celtics winning the point spread at -7.5. Get a jump on your prop bets with Tatum having a monster game by scoring over 29 points at -125 odds.

Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Dallas Mavericks Best Bet: -3 | -108 at FanDuel Sportsbook

Despite being double-teamed and hand-cuffed for most of Games Two and Three, Luka Doncic made the shots that mattered the most, especially the game-winner in Game Two. After a slow start, Kyrie found his stride by hitting two clutch shots late in the fourth quarter to help the Mavericks take a throat-gripping 3-0 lead in the Western Conference Finals.

With Big D on the verge of making another NBA Finals appearance, the safe bet goes with FanDuel Sportsbook’s solid -146 moneyline bet. Because this series has been so close throughout, if you feel the Wolves will avoid the sweep, you can jump on FanDuel’s underdog moneyline wager of +124 odds. With so much pressure on Anthony Edwards to have a breakout game, win or lose, look for Edwards to score over 27 points and hit the -104 player prop bet. Very quietly, backup center Rudy Golbert has had a solid defensive series, so look for him to have over ten rebounds, especially on the offensive side, and make the -132 player prop bet.
