Here’s a look at the most popular player props for tonight’s game, with odds and insights courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
Warriors vs. Celtics, 9:00 p.m. ET, ABC
UPDATE: We’ve got new insights into how bettors are approaching player props for tonight’s contest. Take a look.
Curry’s prop is still at the top, while White’s prop is still on the board. Horford’s points prop is not here anymore, but he’s now backed on the under on turnovers. Tatum’s assist prop is a nice value play at plus money, but the most interesting change is Thompson’s points prop. Previously, the under was the play. Now it looks like bettors are thinking “Game 6 Klay” shows up in Game 3 Wednesday night.
Bettors expect the role players for Boston to perform well at home, which is why they are taking the over for Derrick White and Al Horford’s points total. Bettors also expect Klay Thompson to continue struggling from the floor, which is why the under on his points prop is featured in this list.
Stephen Curry’s prolific shooting has been on display this series and bettors expect that to continue. Curry going over 4.5 three-pointers is the most bet prop on DraftKings and this will likely continue to be the case until he has a bad game.
Jordan Poole scored 17 points in Game 2, so it’s interesting to see his combined points and rebounds prop for under 16.5 getting action. Poole doesn’t do much on the glass, so this is essentially a points prop at under 16.5
