3 Best Prop Bets for Kings vs Warriors Game 3 on April 20 (Klay Thompson Stays Hot From Beyond the Arc)


Thursday's NBA Playoffs slate includes an exciting Game 3 showdown between the Sacramento Kings and Golden State Warriors. The Kings successfully defended home-court advantage with a 114-106 Game 2 victory on Monday and now head to San Francisco with a valuable 2-0 series lead.

Here are three of the best prop bets for Kings-Warriors Game 3, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Kings vs Warriors Game 3 Player Props

1. Klay Thompson - Made Threes: Over 4.5 (-128)

Klay Thompson has played well through the first two games of this series as he shot 5-of-14 from beyond the arc in Game 1 and shot 5-of-10 from three-point range in Game 2. There's a lot to like about his chances of keeping that success going in Game 3. Thompson averages over 5.0 more points per game and shoots nearly 3.0% better from long range when at home versus on the road this season. He has also averaged 5.4 made three-pointers across five games played without Draymond Green this year. Expect Thompson to take a ton of shots from deep against a Kings defense that ranks 25th in opponent three-point percentage (37.1%).

2. Kevin Huerter - Made Threes: Under 2.5 (-128)

Unlike Thompson, Kevin Huerter has done everything but be successful from long range in this series. The former Maryland standout is a dismal 2-of-14 from beyond the arc after being one of the Kings' best three-point shooters during the regular season. Huerter has now failed to make at least a trio of three-pointers in each of his last six games overall and is making an average of just 2.2 three-pointers when playing on the road this campaign (35.0% from three-point range). It wouldn't be surprising to see Huerter lose some playing time to another sharpshooter like Keegan Murray if he continues to struggle.

3. Andrew Wiggins - Rebounds: Over 6.5 (-111)

Someone is going to have to step up on the boards in Green's absence tonight considering the veteran had grabbed 13 rebounds through the first two games. Andrew Wiggins is the most logical candidate considering he tallied 10 boards in his lone game without Green on the floor this season (Feb. 2). Wiggins played a whopping 39 minutes in Game 2 and will likely see a similar workload tonight as he tries to get back into a groove following a two-month long absence from the team. The 28-year-old averages a solid 7.1 rebounds across 27 career playoff games, so he is worth trusting on Thursday.
