Sunday's NBA slate of 2021-22 playoff games includes a showdown between the Golden State Warriors and Denver Nuggets. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Warriors as the 4.5-point road favorites over the Nuggets.
Here are the three of the best prop bets for the Warriors-Nuggets game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Warriors vs Nuggets Player Props
1. Nikola Jokic - Rebounds: Over 14.5 (-110)
Finishing with 15-plus rebounds is tough work for most players, but it's another day in the office for Nikola Jokic. The NBA MVP candidate had an impressive 18-rebound performance in Game 3 and will look to keep the momentum rolling on Sunday. The good news is that Jokic has hit the over on this prop in four of his last seven games against the Warriors. Furthermore, he's finished with at least 15 rebounds in six of his last nine games this season, averaging 15.7 RPG over that span. With the Nuggets needing a win to keep their playoff hopes alive, look for Jokic to prove why he's one of the best in the world at what he does.
2. Klay Thompson - 5+ Threes Made (+170)
Although Klay Thompson was solid with 26 points in Game 3, the highlight was the fact that he finished the game with a whopping six three-pointers. Thompson has proved throughout his career that he's one of the best sharpshooters in history, giving him a good chance of making good on this prop. At least five threes seem like a lot of work, however, Thompson has accomplished that feat in eight of his last 11 outings, averaging 5.3 three-pointers made over that span. The Nuggets have done a poor job of defending the Warriors on the perimeter so far this series, opening the door for Thompson to provide bettors with some nice value here.
3. Andrew Wiggins - Points: Over 13.5 (-122)
Andrew Wiggins had an underwhelming performance in Game 3, finishing with nine points despite playing over 28 minutes. The 27-year-old All-Star can play better than that and should bounce back on Sunday by hitting the over on this prop. Wiggins has recorded at least 14 points in 13 of his last 19 games, averaging 15.6 PPG. He's also hit the over in six of his last 10 games against the Nuggets. With the Warriors looking to send the Nuggets packing, look for Wiggins to step it up.
