The 2021-22 NBA season is in full swing. Saturday's basketball action features a showdown between the Brooklyn Nets and Golden State Warriors.
Here's three of the best prop bets for Nets-Warriors, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Nets vs Warriors Player Props
1. Stephen Curry - Points: Over 25.5 (-108)
Stephen Curry snapped out of his slump on Thursday with a 29-point effort against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The two-time NBA MVP said that he believes he solved his shooting issues, which is bad news for the rest of the NBA — including the Nets. Brooklyn is surrendering the second-most points to point guards this season. That bodes well for Curry's prospects to hit the over, especially considering how he's averaged 25.9 points per game in 20 previous meetings with the Nets. If his shooting slump is truly a thing of the past, it could be an explosive night for Curry.
2. James Harden - Threes Made: Under 2.5 (-180)
In theory, hitting at least a trio of three-pointers shouldn't be much of an issue for a player like James Harden. However, some factors suggest he'll finish with the under on this prop. For starters, he's hit the over just twice in his last 12 games. Secondly, Kyrie Irving is back in the lineup since this is a road game for Brooklyn. Harden averages 5.5 attempted threes whenever Irving has been in the lineup this year, which is below his season average of 7.0. Lastly, the Warriors have a great perimeter defense and are in the top 10 when it comes to limiting threes from shooting guards. While the Nets need Harden to have another big performance, it may not come from beyond the arc.
3. Kevon Looney - Rebounds: Under 8.5 (+104)
Kevon Looney has impressed Warriors fans in his first year as a full-time starter. His 7.2 rebounds per game this year are, by far, the best average of his career. With that being said, his rebounding numbers can fluctuate on any given night. Even though FanDuel Sportsbook is favoring the over here, Looney has finished with the under in over 70% of his games this season. He now faces a Nets team that's held opponents to just 45.7 RPG over their last three contests — second-fewest over that span. With a tough task ahead of the 25-year-old, bettors can get some nice value by taking the under.
