Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry is riding what’s arguably the hottest scoring streak of his career in his age-33 season. He’s scored 30 or more points in 11 straight contests and dropped 49 to secure a win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday. Curry has a chance to continue building his MVP case and improve his chances to win the scoring title on Wednesday in his team’s matchup with the Washington Wizards. There’s no telling what he could put up against Washington.

Point Total: 35.5 — Over (-107), Under (-120)

Pts + Rebs + Asts Total: 46.5 — Over/Under (-113)

DraftKings Sportsbook has set the odds for Curry hitting over his 35.5 point total at -107. The under has more juice at -120. Curry hasn’t dropped below 32 points since March 17 and has scored more than 35 points in eight of his last 11 games. He’s scored at least 47 points in each of his last two outings. While the Wizards have one of the NBA’s worst defensive backcourts, they somehow managed to contain Curry earlier this month.
Curry tallied 32 points on a below-average 11-of-26 shooting against the Wizards seven games ago. He holds a narrow lead over Beal in the scoring title race, and Russell Westbrook is routinely averaging a double-double once again, so Curry will likely have to do a lot to match their production. The Wizards edged out the Dubs despite a cold shooting night from Beal last time around, but I can’t see Curry coming up short given how he’s played as of late. I’m setting the floor at 37 points for Curry, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he eclipsed 40 for the third game in a row.
Curry’s O6.5 made threes prop is more appealing than his point total for a few reasons. He’s made double-digit threes in four of his last five games and has made more than six threes in five of his last six outings. The Wizards are actually a middle-of-the-road team against the long ball, but Curry made five of his 13 attempts from range on a poor shooting night the last time he faced them. I’d smash the over here, as there’s a lot more value at +122.
Curry’s line for points assists and rebounds is set at -113 for the over and under. He’s done more than score during his latest hot streak and is averaging 6.2 rebounds and 4.4 assists per contest in April. Curry’s also averaging 40 points per game in April, so he’s almost certain to hit the over if he maintains his current scoring pace.
First field goal bets are often a crapshoot, but Curry is almost certainly taking the first shot if the Warriors get possession. If you feel like Kevon Looney has some special edge against Robin Lopez ahead of tip-off, there's no harm in betting on Curry. I wouldn’t bet a standard unit on something that so random.
