The Golden State Warriors and Brooklyn Nets face off on Wednesday night, and the Warriors are down several key players in this game.
That’s led to the Nets being set as major favorites, so the more interesting way to wager on this game may come by taking some prop bets.
Here are three that I’m considering for this primetime matchup:
Warriors vs. Nets Best NBA Prop Bets
- Jordan Poole OVER 27.5 Points
- Kevin Durant OVER 27.5 Points
- Yuta Wantanabe OVER 2.5 Rebounds
Jordan Poole OVER 27.5 Points
Jordan Poole is the only good thing the Warriors have going right now, and he’s going to be the focus of the offense with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Andrew Wiggins all out in this game.
Poole finished with 26 points last night against the New York Knicks, and he’s cleared it in each of his two other games since Curry went down with a shoulder injury.
Without Steph this season (six games), Poole is averaging 30.0 points and 4.7 assists per game. He should have a big game for the Warriors regardless of the score tonight.
Kevin Durant OVER 27.5 Points
Kevin Durant is on a tear right now, scoring 28 or more points in six straight games and eight of his last 10 heading into this matchup.
The Warriors have the No. 29 defensive rating in the NBA on the road, and with Wiggins out, Durant should dominate whoever Golden State tries to throw at him.
The only concern would be if the Nets get up by a ton early, but then again, the Warriors gave up 132 points to the Knicks on Tuesday night. KD may not need four quarters to clear this line.
Yuta Wantanabe OVER 2.5 Rebounds
This is another prop that is available at DraftKings, and it’s a sneaky one for Wantanabe who has become a solid piece in Brooklyn’s rotation.
The forward has cleared 2.5 boards in three of his last four games, and he’s taking on a Golden State team that is 23rd in the league in rebounding percentage.
With so many key players out for Golden State, there should be plenty of defensive boards to go around for the entire Nets team.
