The Golden State Warriors will look to take a 3-0 series lead over the Denver Nuggets on Thursday night. Golden State has been flat-out dominant in the first two games, and as a result FanDuel Sportsbook has the Warriors as 2.5-point road favorites in Game 3.

But a spread bet is far from the only way to wager on this game. Here are three of the best prop bets available on FanDuel Sportsbook for Game 3.

Warriors vs Nuggets Player Prop Bets Game 3

3. Jordan Poole - Points: Over 22.5 (-108)

We're not breaking news here or anything, but Jordan Poole is red hot right now. In his 20 games heading into the postseason, Poole averaged 25.4 PPG and scored 23 or more in 13 of those 20. He's followed that up by scoring 30 and 29 points through two playoff games, meaning he's cashed this prop in 15 of his last 22 outings. There's no reason to believe he's slowing down in Game 3.

2. Aaron Gordon - Points: Under 13.5 (+100)

Aaron Gordon is miscast as the Nuggets' third offensive option, a role he's in entirely due to injuries. But even with the increase in usage, the Warriors just seem to have Gordon's number. Gordon has yet to reach even 9 points through two games in this series and he failed to top 10 points in three regular-season games against Golden State. In total, Gordon is averaging 8.6 PPG in five appearances against the Warriors this year. This number coming in at even money is just the cherry on top.

1. Klay Thompson: 5+ Made Threes (+194)

At +194, this one is obviously a bit of a long shot. But few players get hot like Klay Thompson gets hot. And we're starting to see signs that the old Klay is back. While he's yet to show he's the elite defender he once was, his lightning-quick shot looks as deadly as ever. Klay was averaging 30.8 PPG in his final six games before the postseason, sinking 6.0 3-pointers on 13.3 attempts per game. He's looked dangerous in the postseason too, hitting 5 threes in Game 1 and shooting 3-of-8 from beyond the arc in Game 2. Getting essentially 2-to-1 odds on this prop is really tough to pass up, and it could be a great (albeit risky) leg to add to juice up some parlays.
