Steph and Seth Curry already made NBA history as the first brothers to face one another in the same NBA Playoffs Conference Finals earlier this week, but now they're making sports betting history too.
Thanks to FanDuel Sportsbook, Thursday's Game 2 of the NBA Western Conference Finals between Steph Curry's Golden State Warriors and Seth Curry's Portland Trail Blazers allows Steph and Seth to double as the first pair of brothers you can bet on in the Conference Finals with a group of head-to-head prop bets available.
While Steph Curry has inarguably proven to be the better player compared to his little brother Seth, FanDuel Sportsbook's new set of Curry-brother prop bets brings the competitive balance between each brother's upcoming performance in Game 2 of the NBA Western Conference Finals much closer.
Given Steph is averaging 25.2 points per game (PPG) over his seven-year postseason career and Seth is averaging 5.2 PPG over his single-year, 13-game postseason career, it's not hard to see why the brothers have been boiled down to a different comparative metric from a betting perspective.
With Kevin Durant sidelined from Golden State's last two games due to a strained calf, Steph Curry has returned to the star that led this Warriors team to a title in 2015 before the addition KD.
Steph Curry has now averaged 6.0 assists per game (APG) over his last four contests, while his younger brother Seth has scored more than six points only once and averaged 3.25 points per game (PPG) over that same stretch.
Over the course of the entire 2018-19 NBA postseason thus far, Steph has averaged 5.2 APG, while Seth has averaged exactly 5.2 PPG. However, over each of the Curry brothers' last 10 games, respectively, Steph has finished with as many or more assists than Seth has totaled in points eight times.
In Tuesday night's Game 1 between the Warriors and Blazers, the Curry brothers combined for 36 total points. However, the two-time NBA MVP and three-time NBA champion, Steph, accounted for 33 of them.
