Game 5 of the NBA Finals is scheduled for Monday night in Golden State with the series tied at two games apiece.

NBA Finals odds have the Warriors as slight favorites to win the series at -150, while NBA betting lines have them as 3.5-point favorites Monday night.

While those are two popular bets to consider, do not forget about prop bets. Here are a few player props to look at for Game 5.

Stephen Curry Over 30.5 Points (-125)

How can you not bet the over with the way Steph Curry has been scoring of late? The two-time league MVP has put the Warriors on his back this series, averaging 34.3 points per game, highlighted by Friday’s masterful 43-point showing. Having topped his 30.5 points prop in three of the series’ four games, it’s difficult to envision Curry slowing down soon. Ride him while he’s hot.

Jayson Tatum Over 26.5 Points (-125)

Jayson Tatum had another rough shooting performance in Boston’s Game 4 loss, going 8-for-23 en route to an inefficient 23 points. However, the 24-year-old has responded well this postseason, averaging over 30 points in seven games following a loss.

While Tatum has bested this prop just once all series, he has proven capable of exploding at any given time, as evidenced by his seven games of 30 or more points during Boston’s playoff run. The three-time All-Star said he must shoot the ball better, and it’s reasonable to expect him to do so, given his track record.

Klay Thompson Over 3.5 Three-Pointers (-110)

Although he has struggled with consistency throughout these playoffs, there’s no denying Klay Thompson remains one of the game’s deadliest shooters. The 32-year-old has gone over his 3.5 three-pointers prop eight times this postseason, including two straight in this series (Games 3 and 4).

Entering Game 5, Thompson has a realistic shot of making it a third such effort, as volume has never been an issue. Besides, someone on the Warriors other than Curry must hit a three, right?
