Game 5 of the 2022 NBA Finals takes place Monday in San Francisco as both the Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors look to grab a 3-2 edge in what is now a best-of-three series.

Here’s a look at the most popular player props among bettors for Monday’s game, with odds and insights courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Celtics vs. Warriors, 9:00 p.m. ET, ABC

UPDATE: We’ve got updated popular player prop bets from DraftKings Sportsbook and it’s largely the same guys with a few minor but important changes.

Bettors who were taking the under on Curry’s triples made prop have now switched to the over. Smart’s over on rebounds has now changed to an over on PRA at 24.5. The guard is averaging 24.8 PRA in this series, but had an anomaly with two points in Game 2 so he’s a strong bet to go over here. The over on Curry’s points, Tatum’s points and Thompson’s points remain on the chart.


With the line moving from 4.5 to 5.5 on Stephen Curry’s 3-pointers made prop, it’s surprising to see bettors take the under suddenly. Curry has made at least five triples in each game and has gone over 5.5 in three out of four. It’s also confusing when you consider the over on Curry’s points prop at 30.5 is the most popular play on the board.

Many bettors feel Jayson Tatum will have a strong outing, as the over on his points prop at 26.5 is on the list. Klay Thompson showed signs of life in Game 4, so the public might be thinking he’s due for more fireworks in a friendly home environment. Marcus Smart is averaging 4.5 rebounds per game and has gone over this mark in three of the four contests, so the over on his rebounding prop at 3.5 also makes sense.
