The 2021 NBA season is in full swing. Tuesday's basketball action features a primetime matchup between the Golden State Warriors and Brooklyn Nets.
Here's three of the best prop bets for Warriors-Nets, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Warriors vs Nets Player Props
1. Stephen Curry - Points: Under 30.5 (-114)
Stephen Curry has been hot as of late, averaging 34.8 points over his last four games. While that would put him at the over for this prop, he's facing a Nets defense that's one of the best in the league. Brooklyn has held opponents to just 100.7 PPG at home — fifth-best in the NBA. That doesn't necessarily bode well for Curry, who's played much better at the Chase Center than he has on the road this season (30.0 PPG at home vs 23.8 PPG away). The Nets have also held opposing point guards to a combined average of 21.0 points so far, which further points to Curry having a tough time hitting the over.
2. Kevin Durant - Rebounds: Over 8.5 (-114)
Kevin Durant is currently averaging 8.4 rebounds per game — a career-best if he stays on this pace. While the Warriors have held opponents to 51.5 rebounds per game (9th) so far, they haven't been successfully boxing out small forwards. SFs are averaging 10.7 RPG against Golden State, which is the third-highest average in the league. That's encouraging for Durant, who has six double-digit rebounding performances this season. He's also averaged 8.6 RPG in 32 meetings against his former team, so it seems likely that he can hit the over for this prop.
3. Jordan Poole - Threes Made: Under 2.5 (+116)
Jordan Poole has been having a breakout season for the Warriors, averaging career-highs in points (17.2) and threes made (2.5) per game. However, it won't be easy for him to hit the over on this prop. Opposing teams have hit just 31.0% of their three-point attempts (2nd) against the Nets, which has improved to 28.2% of their last three games. While Poole shot better from range this year, he's only hit the over for this prop once in his last five games. With Brooklyn surrendering just 10.6 threes per game (4th), it could be a long night for the third-year pro.
