Best Bets For Warriors-Celtics NBA Finals Clash Thursday

Tonight is elimination game for the home team Boston Celtics, who find themselves as a four-point favorite.

The Celtics must perform at a high level if they hope to board a flight back to the West Coast to take on the Golden State Warriors in a deciding Game 7. 

In the five games played, the Warriors have been the far more consistent offensive team, scoring a team high of 108 points in the first game, a loss, but at least 100 points in the other four games. 

The Celtics have hardly been consistent, scoring a finals high of 120 points and a finals low of 88 points. 

I like the Warriors to win the game tonight and add their fourth title in the past eight seasons.

NBA Finals MVP Bet

The game Thursday in Boston presents several good NBA betting options.

One is the finals MVP award, which might end up going to the Warriors' Andrew Wiggins, pictured.

Wiggins has evolved into a superstar in the making, emerging as Stephen Curry’s sidekick on the offensive end and coming off back-to-back double-doubles. 

Wiggins has played tremendous defense, too, and his body of work is worthy for serious consideration as the recipient of the finals MVP award. 

Remember, MVP wagers are pizza money bets, as in $10 to $25.

At +1800 as offered at BetMGM, Wiggins represents a finals MVP long shot entering Game 6 tonight. 

If the Celtics force a Game 7 with a win tonight, with Curry having a second poor performance and Wiggins posting another double-double, the markets may drop the Wiggins MVP line down to +800. 

If Wiggins dominates in Game 7 at both ends, he would get a lot of voter consideration, even if he is not the high scorer in Game 7. It’s too hard to pass up a pizza money wager on Wiggins at +1800.

Game 6 Player Props

The following player prop bets are based on research since Game 1. These also are pizza money bets.

1. Stephen Curry Over 4.5 three pointers made, at -115 at BetMGM.

2. Jayson Tatum Under 42.5 points + assists + rebounds, at -115 at FanDuel Sportsbook.

3. Kevon Looney to record a double-double, at +1700 at FanDuel.

4. Stephen Curry Over 5.5 rebounds, at -106 at FanDuel.

5. Robert Williams III Over 10.5 rebounds + assists, at +104 at FanDuel.
