When it comes to NBA betting in the NBA Finals, it’s not just NBA betting lines to bet on.
There are dozens of prop bets to choose from, including player props and game props.
Here are a few game prop bets to consider for Monday’s Game 5 between the Warriors and Celtics.
Winning Margin: Golden State 1-5 (+400)
Golden State is an outstanding 10-1 at home in the playoffs, the only blemish coming in Game 1 of this series, as Boston rallied furiously in the fourth quarter to post a 120-108 victory. Playing in front of their home crowd after an enormous win in Game 4, it’s hard not to like the Warriors in this one, bringing Boston’s unbeaten record after a playoff loss to an end.
While no game in this series has been decided by single-digits, the chances of this contest being close is still attractive. Celtics star forward Jayson Tatum has shown an impressive ability to bounce back after a tough game (8-for-23 shooting, six turnovers in Game 3), and the Celtics’ 8-3 road record in the playoffs must be respected. Take the Warriors with a margin of 1-5 points, recognizing the potential for Boston to cover.
Race to 30: Golden State (-139)
The race to 30 was tight in Game 4, with Jordan Poole’s 3-pointer just over two minutes into the second quarter winning it for the Warriors. Those who took the Celtics in this prop could not have been pleased to see their team go 0-for-4 with two turnovers to start the quarter while leading 28-27. Golden State, buoyed by their home crowd, is likely to get off to a good start, giving them the edge in a prop that is typically decided in the opening stanza.
