There are dozens, maybe hundreds, of options when it comes to NBA betting for the NBA Finals.
Most will focus on NBA betting lines, but prop bets are also worth considering.
Here are a few to consider for Thursday’s Game 6 between the Warriors and Celtics.
Jayson Tatum Over 27.5 points (-120)
The Celtics’ tough Game 5 loss overshadowed an outstanding performance from Jayson Tatum. The Celtics forward scored 27 points on 10 of 20 shooting, including 5 of 9 from 3-point range.
Expect the star to see the ball early and often in this must-have contest.
Career in Game 6s
Jayson Tatum: 27.7 PTS, 48.3% FG
Klay Thompson: 20.7 PTS, 44.6% FG
Maybe we should be saying "Game 6 Tatum."

Stephen Curry Under 28.5 points (-110)
There are specific scenarios that support taking the under that don’t rely on Stephen Curry having another miserable shooting night. The Celtics could be comfortably ahead in the fourth quarter, and Curry is forced to fight again in the finale, all the more likely given that he continues to play through an ankle injury.
The star guard embarrassed this recommendation in Game 4. Still, the over appears even more challenging to beat this time with the Celtics fighting for their lives at home and a more human performance expected from Curry.
Andrew Wiggins Over 7.5 rebounds (-149)
Andrew Wiggins has obliterated his rebound prop in the past two games, so this looks too good to pass up. He is playing a ton of minutes and riding the momentum of back-to-back standout performances.
Matched up against Tatum, staying out of foul trouble will be critical, but that aside, Wiggins appears poised to surpass this prop once again.
