The stars are out Wednesday night in the Western Conference Finals when the Golden State Warriors host the Dallas Mavericks at 9 p.m. EST. 

Luka Doncic and Steph Curry will go toe-to-toe, and I have a player prop on Curry that you should consider playing tonight. 

Let’s get into some of the best value props offered at WynnBET for Game 1: 

Best Prop Bets for Mavericks vs. Warriors Game 1

  • Kevon Looney UNDER 7.5 Rebounds (-140)
  • Andrew Wiggins OVER 15.5 Points (-105)
  • Steph Curry OVER 27.5 Points (-105)

Kevon Looney UNDER 7.5 Rebounds (-140)

Warriors big man Kevon Looney had 22 rebounds in the team’s Game 6 win over the Memphis Grizzlies in the Western Conference semifinals, but don’t let that fool you into betting the over on his rebound prop in Game 1. 

Looney has cleared this number just twice in the playoffs, and the Warriors have gone away from him often with smaller lineups on the floor. The Mavericks are going to try and stretch the floor with shooters, which could lead to a lot of Draymond Green at center for Golden State. 

Looney is playing just 16.2 minutes per game and averaging 6.4 rebounds this postseason. Prior to the 22-rebound game, he was putting up just 4.8 boards per game. Fade him tonight. 

Andrew Wiggins OVER 15.5 Points (-105)

Andre Wiggins may be the X-Factor for the Warriors in this series, as the Mavericks will likely throw Reggie Bullock and Dorian Finney-Smith on Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. 

Wiggins cleared this number in five of the team’s six games against the Grizzlies, and he averaged 12.5 shots per game. If you take away his 19-minute showing in the team’s Game 5 loss, his numbers look even better. I think we're getting him at a discount in Game 1. 

Steph Curry OVER 27.5 Points (-105)

Speaking of discounts, can we really fade Curry at home in Game 1?

Steph missed this number in the Game 5 loss, but he has cleared 27.5 points in six playoff games and is averaging 26.9 points per game in the postseason. Remember, he started the Nuggets series coming off the bench, and yet still put up gaudy scoring numbers. 

The Mavericks have been really solid defensively in these playoffs, but Curry is a different beast. I think Golden State makes sure its lead dog gets going in Game 1.
