The NBA Finals have not disappointed, as the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics have traded wins through the first four games of the series. 

That brings us to tonight’s pivotal Game 5, where the Warriors are 3.5-point favorites at WynnBET

I’ve got three picks to make on this game, including my pick on the spread:

  • Draymond Green UNDER 21.5 Points, Rebounds Assists (-120)
  • Steph Curry OVER 30.5 Points (-120)
  • Boston Celtics +3.5 vs. Golden State Warriors (-110)

Draymond Green UNDER 21.5 Points, Rebounds Assists (-120)

Draymond Green has been brutal in this series, and he’s failed to hit 21.5 PRA in any of the first four games. 

Green came close in Game 4 with two points, nine rebounds and eight assists, but he’s scored just 17 points in the entire series, seriously limiting his ceiling with this prop. 

I’ll fade Draymond again with his offensive game seriously lacking against Boston. 

Steph Curry OVER 30.5 Points (-120)

Is there any other bet to make on Steph Curry?

The Warriors superstar is averaging 34.3 points per game in this series, and he’s scored 34, 29, 31 and 43 points in the first four games in this series. Steph is also shooting 50.0 percent from the field and 49.0 percent from beyond the arc. 

Absolute money. He’s going to get plenty of shots (because Golden State has to jump on his back) in Game 5 and should be able to clear this again. 

Boston Celtics vs. Golden State Warriors: Celtics +3.5 (-110)

I won’t fade this Celtics after a loss, as they are a perfect 7-0 straight up and against the spread this postseason. 

The Warriors may win this game at home, but I think it will be close regardless, especially after how tight Game 4 was in Boston. 

Grabbing Boston to keep this game within a possession seems like the smart play here, especially since they could win this straight up.
