The BetSided team is all in on player props for this NBA season, sharing our favorite and best prop bet picks each day during the year. 

The Golden State Warriors are looking to take a 3-0 lead on the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday in the Western Conference Finals, and they just might if the two player prop picks I have for tonight come true.

Best NBA Prop Bets Record to Date

Here are the plays I am eyeing for tonight’s slate with all odds via WynnBET:

  • Steph Curry to Hit 4+ 3-Pointers (-130)
  • Klay Thompson OVER 2.5 Assists (-120)

Steph Curry to Hit 4+ 3-Pointers (-130)

Even with the series shifting back to Dallas, I think it’s still time to back Steph Curry to stay hot from beyond the arc. 

Curry has made four or more shots from beyond the arc in six of his 13 playoff games this season, but he’s been consistently hovering around at least three treys per game. 

The big thing I love about this prop is the volume, as Curry is taking 10.5 shots from beyond the arc per game and averaging 3.9 made 3-pointers per game. With Dallas trying to hoist as many shots as it can from deep, don’t be shocked if Steph is the great equalizer tonight. 

Klay Thompson OVER 2.5 Assists (-120)

We haven’t seen Klay Thompson really light up the stat sheet in this series from a scoring perspective, but he’s been smart about his shots, averaging 15.0 points per game while shooting 56.5 percent from the field.

The other impressive part of Thompson’s game has been his willingness to get his teammates involved in this series, posting four and five assists in the first two games of the series.

Klay isn’t known for his playmaking, but the Warriors continue to find the open man with Dallas trying to blitz Steph Curry and Thompson.

Thompson has tallied three or more dimes in six of his last nine games, and he’s had just one game all postseason where he failed to notch an assist.

It may seem high at 2.5, but I think Klay continues to move the ball well against this Dallas defense that lacks any real rim protection.
