With that said, opposing Centers have feasted on the glass. Embiid had 15 rebounds, Bam had 8, Carter Jr had 12, and Vucevic had 23. So far this season, the Celtics have allowed the 5th most rebounds to the Center position. That creates an enticing night for Jarrett Allen props.
Allen’s front court mate, Evan Mobley, will have his hands full on the perimeter trying to keep up with Tatum. Allen should be able to stay in the paint often with the exception of a few times Horford stretches him to the arc. I think Allen has a shot at eye popping rebound numbers tonight.
Allen is averaging 11.5 rebounds a game so far this year and coming off a season high 16 rebounds vs the Magic. He ranks 6th in the league in rebounds per game, and 6th in the league rebound chances at 19.3 a game.
I am going to ladder Allen’s rebounds up to 16 in this matchup.
