The 2022 NBA Finals moves to Boston for Game 3 on Wednesday, June 8, and the series between the Celtics and Warriors is now a tossup. FanDuel Sportsbook has both teams -110 to win the series, and Boston is a -3.5 point favorite in Game 3 with a total of 213.

But beyond the spread and total, FanDuel bettors are enjoying prop bets and player props. Check out some of the best prop bets on the Celtics in Game 3, and read below for props to consider on the Golden State Warriors.

Best Warriors Prop Bets

1. Klay Thompson - Points: Under 18.5 (-108)

Thompson struggled in Game 2 with just 11 points on 4-of-19 shooting including 1-of-8 from three point land. He was put on the bench for much of the 3rd quarter. That followed a 15 point performance in Game 1. The Celtics superior defense has allowed the lowest frequency of open 3-pointers over the course of the playoffs (29%). Thompson will have to make more contested shots with Jaylen Brown and rotating perimeter defenders making it tough on Thompson again back in Boston.

2. Draymond Green - Alternate Rebounds: Over 8.5 (+154)

Green's Game 3 rebounds is set at 7.5 (Over -102). Let's go for a bigger score and look for the Warriors top rebounder to respond after picking up 11 boards in Game 1 but 5 rebounds in Game 2 on fewer minutes. Green averages just over 7 rebounds per game this season and in the playoffs. "I wouldn't be able to live with myself if I'm going on about my summer and we lost the NBA Finals because we couldn't meet force with force," Green said Tuesday ahead of Game 3. Aggressive play and effort expected inside and on the glass.

3. Steph Curry - Assists: Over 5.5 (+104)

Curry has scored 34 and 29 points the first two games, and his points total is set at 28.5 in Game 3. Let's look for the floor leader to be pressured more and dish to his teammates. I'd also suggest even a bigger score and bet over 6.5 assists at +182 odds. Curry had 9, 8 and 11 assists in the Western Conference finals last three games before dishing out 4 and 5 assists in the first two games of the NBA Finals.
