Celtics vs. Warriors Game 6 Player Prop Pick
Andrew Wiggins 6+ Rebounds, Stephen Curry 4+ AST & 1+ STL -120 (Bet $120 to win $100)
Andrew Wiggins has absolutely dominated on the boards over the last couple of games. While the Warriors don't have the traditional size to be a strong rebounding team, is clear coach Kerr has lit a fire under guys like Andrew Wiggins to make up for that fact. Wiggins is averaging 7.6 rebounds over the course of the postseason and is playing more minutes than almost anyone else in this series. Wiggins is averaging 9.8 rebounds this series so far and has now put up 13 and 16 rebounds in back-to-back performances. His aggressive perimeter defense, consistent scoring, and activity on the boards has resulted in 40+ minutes in three straight games, I’m expecting Wiggins to continue to stand out as one of the most important players on this Warriors team.
While it's easy to appreciate everything Wiggins has done, this team wouldn't be here without the efforts of Stephen Curry. While Curry’s scoring will always be the most reported fact, he’s been filling up the stat sheet in multiple ways. Curry averaged 6.3 assists per game during the regular season, and that's stayed consistent with 5.8 during the postseason. Curry has 4+ assists in 20 of 21 postseason games, and this is a very attainable number given the 35+ minute workload he’s in store for. Even if Curry gets off to a fast start in the scoring department, I’m confident in coach Udoka making the necessary halftime decision to get the ball out of his hands and rack up those late-game assists.
Finally let's talk about the Stephen Curry steal prop, something that has been very profitable this postseason. Curry has 10 steals in five games this series, with 2+ steals in four of those five games. Curry isn't traditionally known for his defensive presence, but he’s been very pesky in these passing lanes constantly making good reads and creating transition points. Curry has 1+ steal in 11 of his last 14 games, I expect him to continue to grab steals in what could be the final game of the season.
