Celtics vs. Warriors Game 6: Top NBA Finals Prop Odds & Picks for Thursday, June 16 (2022)

Jun 16, 2022 - 10:51 AM

Could Game 6 be the final game of the NBA season?

The Boston Celtics head home for Game 6, trailing the Golden State Warriors, 3-2, in the NBA Finals. A Warriors’ win would complete the NBA season, giving the Warriors their fourth championship with their core of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green.

However, if the Celtics win, at home, in Game 6, Boston would force a Game 7 in Golden State for the 2022 NBA Title. Here are some player props to consider for the do-or-die game for Boston on Thursday:

DraftKings NBA Playoffs

Celtics vs. Warriors: Klay Thompson Over 3.5 Three-pointers 

Despite Steph Curry and Andrew Wiggins going 0-for-15 from downtown combined, Klay Thompson helped the Warriors from deep, hitting 5-of-11 from downtown in Game 5.

Thompson has four three-pointers in each of his last three games while shooting at least 10 threes per game. If he’s going to take 10 threes again, we need him to nail four of them and hit them at 40%. He’s shooting 35.9% in the Finals and had one game where he went 1-for-8, which is the outlier and the reason why he’s not hitting 40% from downtown.

Therefore, I like Thompson to nail at least four three-pointers again in Game 6.

Bet: Klay Thompson Over 3.5 Three-pointers (-142 via FanDuel)  

Celtics vs. Warriors: Andrew Wiggins Over 7.5 Rebounds

Andrew Wiggins was likely told to be more aggressive on the glass. He has 29 rebounds in his last two games and has been the x-factor for the Warriors, helping lead them into Game 6 with a 3-2 advantage. When he’s dominant on the offensive end and grabbing a ton of rebounds, the Warriors have more success.

Wiggins is averaging 9.4 rebounds per game in the NBA Finals and is coming off two straight games where he played 43 minutes per night. Wiggins has stayed out of foul trouble and rarely says anything throughout the game. Wiggins, who was once labeled a bust, will do whatever he can to get his first NBA Championship. If that means grabbing eight boards, he’ll do it.

Bet: Andrew Wiggins Over 7.5 Rebounds (-132 via FanDuel)

Celtics vs. Warriors: Jayson Tatum Over 42.5 Points, Rebounds, Assists

I’m going all-in on Jayson Tatum. In a do-or-die game, Tatum is going to have to step up. Tatum is averaging 23.2 points per game along with 7.6 rebounds and seven assists per game in the NBA Finals. Those averages turn in about 38 points, rebounds, and assists. But in a must-win situation, Tatum should be able to add more points to the box score.

I think Tatum goes for 30 points in Game 6 at home, with the entire season on the line. He’ll also be more active on the glass. He’s now added 10 or more rebounds in the last two games. Therefore, if he’s earning 30 or more points and 10 or more rebounds, he’ll easily get over this 42.5 marker with three assists, as he’s averaging seven assists per game.

Bet: Jayson Tatum Over 42.5 Points, Rebounds, Assists (-113 via FanDuel)
