Here's three of the best prop bets for Warriors-Celtics, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook
Warriors vs Celtics Player Props
1. Stephen Curry - Points: Under 28.5 (+100)
After a white-hot start to the 2021-22 NBA season, Stephen Curry has begun to "slow down" as of late. While his 22.6 points per game over his last eight outings are a lot better than what most players can do, it may make some question if he can hit the over on this prop. Considering how he's only hit 29 points once during the above eight-game stretch, it looks like the under is more likely. It's also important to note that the Celtics are surrendering the eighth-fewest points to point guards this season, so Curry could have a tough task in front of him.
2. Jayson Tatum - Rebounds: Over 8.5 (-128)
Jayson Tatum has been a beast in the paint this season, averaging a career-high 8.6 boards per game. Even though the Warriors are one of the best rebounding teams in the league, they're giving up the eighth-most rebounds to the small forward position. Additionally, Tatum has a good shot at hitting the over on this prop due to big men Al Horford, Grant Williams and Jabari Parker all being out of the lineup due to COVID-19. With all of their rebounds up for grabs, Boston will heavily rely on Tatum's paint presence tonight since he can play power forward as well. He also averaged 9.5 RPG in two games against Golden State last year.
3. Draymond Green - Assists: Under 7.5 (-128)
Draymond Green has continued being a great playmaker this season, averaging 7.3 assists per game. While that's close to the total on this prop, he's finished with eight or more helpers just once in his last five games. It certainly doesn't help that the Warriors have scored the fifth-fewest points in their last three outings, which means fewer assist opportunities for Green. The Celtics have held him to 4.9 APG in 18 career meetings as well — tied for the fifth-worst average he has against any team. While he's a more than talented passer, the over just doesn't appear to be in the cards for Green tonight.
