The 2021 NBA season is in full swing. Monday's basketball action features a west coast matchup between the Miami Heat and Golden State Warriors.
Here's three of the best prop bets for Heat-Warriors, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Heat vs Warriors Player Props
1. Stephen Curry - Points: Under 28.5 (-116)
While Stephen Curry has been in the NBA MVP discussion throughout the season, he's struggled to shoot the ball as of late. The 33-year-old has made just 27-of-61 field-goal attempts in his last three games and has shot worse than .400 in two of those contests. Things won't get any easier for him tonight as the Warriors face a Heat defense surrendering the fewest points to point guards this season (17.7 PPG). Even if Curry is capable of exploding at any given time, Miami's backcourt defense should give him a hard time reaching the over on this prop.
2. Draymond Green - Rebounds: Over 8.5 (+100)
Draymond Green makes his return to the starting lineup tonight following a two-game absence on the COVID-19 list. While the veteran power forward has been averaging an impressive 7.9 rebounds per game, the Heat have given up the second-fewest RPG this season (49.7). Nevertheless, most of Miami's frontcourt is hurt, which should give Green some extra opportunities to pick up boards. The Heat are also surrendering 11.4 RPG to power forwards (T-14th). Considering how Green's hit the over on this prop in six of his last 12 games, there's a decent chance of it happening again tonight.
3. Andrew Wiggins - Points: Under 18.5 (-110)
Andrew Wiggins has looked good over his last three games, averaging 24.3 PPG in that time. Nevertheless, he has a tough matchup against Jimmy Butler tonight, who's one of the better defenders in the league and last season's steals leader. It certainly doesn't help that Miami is good at defending small forwards in general, holding the position to 19.7 PPG (T-10th). Wiggins has also finished with the under on this prop in over half his games this season, meaning expectations should probably be tempered tonight.
