Friday's NBA slate of Playoff games includes an exciting Game 6 showdown between theMemphis Grizzlies and Golden State Warriors. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Warriors as the 8-point home favorites over the Grizzlies.
Here's three of the best prop bets for the Grizzlies-Warriors game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Grizzlies vs Warriors Player Props
1. Tyus Jones - Points + Rebounds + Assists: Over 26.5 (-108)
Tyus Jones has been tasked with being the primary ball handler with Grizzlies star player Ja Morant out with a knee injury. He has stepped up in a big way over the last two games, averaging 20.0 points, 7.0 assists and 4.5 rebounds. Keep in mind he was able to cash the over on this prop bet despite playing in only 24 minutes of a blowout Game 5 win. Jones is in line to see upward of 40 minutes with Memphis' season on the line and is shooting well from beyond the arc (7-of-14 in Game 4 & 5). That is a recipe for success.
2. Draymond Green - Points + Rebounds + Assists: Under 22.5 (-108)
This number is too high considering the fact that Draymond Green has logged more than 22 points, rebounds and assists in a game only once during this series. That was when he balled out with 10 rebounds and 7 assists in Game 2. In the other four games, Green is averaging 4.5 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.3 assists. He has also failed to attempts more than four shots in any of those contests and is not a threat near the rim on offense. Without Green having almost any scoring upside, he will need close to 20 rebounds & assists to cash this over. That's a lot to ask of the 10-year pro.
3. Desmond Bane - Points: Under 19.5 Points (-122)
After what was an impressive first round for Desmond Bane, the Memphis guard has struggled to produce against a stout Warriors defense. The 23-year-old is averaging 11.8 points per game during this series and has only scored 20 or more points once (Game 5). Bane is also struggling to get to the free throw line and is shooting only 40.4% from the floor against Golden State. Bane looked much improved in Game 5, but being up by double-digits almost the entire game let him shoot freely without any pressure. That will not be the case at the Chase Center on Friday night.
