Player prop expert Gray Gutfreund has narrowed down his top NBA bet for Game 5 of the NBA Finals. He has his eyes set on Andrew Wiggins as the Warriors are set to battle the Boston Celtics in Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday night.

Golden State Warriors vs. Boston Celtics Player Prop Pick: Finding Value With Andrew Wiggins in Game 5

The Golden State Warriors pulled off an excellent Game 4 road win in the TD Garden on Friday night. Stephen Curry's marvelous 43-point performance was at the heart of the Warriors' success. But, Andrew Wiggins showed up in a major way and was clearly the second-best player for the Dubs on their way to even up the series at two wins apiece.

Wiggins scored 17 points and pulled down a career-high 16 rebounds in just over 43 minutes of action. The first-time all-star proved vitally important to Golden State's success, as the team got outscored by 10 points in only 4 minutes and 35 seconds with Wiggins off the floor. He should be locked into a massive role yet again on Monday night, which should open up some nice value on a few of his props.

3-Leg Andrew Wiggins Same Game Parlay (-129) (Bet $129 to win $100)

*Odds Available at FanDuel at Time of Publishing*

Leg 1: Andrew Wiggins 1+ Threes Made

Leg 2: Andrew Wiggins Under 21.5 Points

Andrew Wiggins has been ultra-consistent as a secondary scoring option for the Warriors. And, he's been even more consistent as a spot-up three-point shooter on several attempts per game. However, he's hardly exceeded the 20-point mark in the current iteration of this Golden State lineup.

The former Timberwolves forward has knocked down at least one three in 19 of 20 games this postseason, averaging 1.6 makes on 4.5 attempts. In the Finals, he's hit multiple threes in 3 of 4 games and is averaging 1.8 makes on 5.5 attempts. He's connected on 38.4% of his looks from downtown in 93 total games this season and should take four or five in Game 5 at the absolute minimum.

Meanwhile, Wiggs has scored more than 20 points in just one game this postseason. He's averaging 16.5 PPG in the Finals, which is right in line with his 15.5 PPG average in 41 games with both Steph and Klay Thompson in the lineup. Wiggins has made at least one three and scored fewer than 21.5 points in 36 of 41 games with the splash brothers.

Leg 3: Andrew Wiggins 4+ Rebounds

"Maple Jordan" is posting an incredible 8.5 RPG this series and has been active on the offensive glass, in addition to his aggressive defensive rebounding. So, as long as he continues to see 36+ minutes of action, this third and final leg shouldn't be a problem.

The Kansas product has 5+ rebounds in 18 of 20 games this postseason. He's averaged 7.3 RPG and 7.8 REB per 36 minutes. If we only look at games where Wiggins has played 36+ minutes this postseason, he's averaged 9.4 RPG across these 9 appearances.

And, the only two games where he couldn't reach the 4-rebound mark were in massive blowouts. In the Warriors-Grizzlies series, Wiggs played just 25 minutes in Game 3 and 19 minutes in Game 5 due to massive deficits. With a 3.5-point spread for Game 5, look for the Warriors' most important perimeter defender to see plenty of run on Monday night.

This play has an 80% hit rate this postseason and an 87% hit rate when Wiggins plays at least 30 minutes this postseason. With a pivotal Game 5 on tap, look for Andrew Wiggins to stay active enough for us to cash this one.
