Game 5 of the NBA Finals tips off tomorrow night between the Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors. With some time to think, let’s take a look at the best player props for tomorrow night.
Stephen Curry O/U 28.5 points -155: Over
Steph Curry has been absolutely phenomenal in the Finals thus far and there’s simply no other way to describe it. He’s averaging 34.3 ppg 6.3 rpg and 3.8 apg in the series. Game 4 saw Steph explode for 43 points as he carried the Warriors to a road victory expect another 30 piece from Steph Curry in Game 5 as he tries to take a series lead.
Jaylen Brown O/U 21.5 points -165: Over
Jaylen Brown’s offensive game has been pretty reliable throughout the playoffs. In the Finals Brown is averaging 22.3 ppg in the series. Brown usually catches fire in the 4th quarter of games when the Celtics need to make a comeback, and given that they’re playing on the road in Game 5 it present Jaylen with a perfect opportunity to score those points.
Andrew Wiggins O/U points 18.5 -140: Under
Wiggins has had a pretty average series in terms of scoring, as he’s averaged 16.5 points through four games. However he only reached the 20 point mark in Game 1, which is what he would have to reach in Game 5 for the over. Wiggins' offensive game helps the Warriors in a big way, but the Dubs have shown they don’t necessarily need him to score to win.
Draymond Green O/U assists 5.5 -165: Over
Draymonds scoring has been simply pathetic in this series, but his playmaking skills are almost always reliable. He’s averaged a miserable 4.3 ppg, but 5.8 assists in this Finals series. No matter how he performs, Draymond is a clear cut leader who is bound to bring the intensity. His defense and playmaking are the best parts of his game so expect the over on his assist total to hit tomorrow night.
Jayson Tatum O/U assists 5.5 -140: Over
Tatum has been streaky in terms of scoring, but a surprisingly good aspect of his game has been his playmaking. Tatum is averaging 7.8 apg in the series. Since his scoring is down a bit from double teams, Tatum has been looking to create for his teammates. Expect him to do that again in Game 5 to hit the over in assists.
Game 5 tips off tomorrow night at 9pm ET on ABC.
