Warriors vs Nuggets Game 5 Player Props

Bones Hyland, Nuggets: UNDER 10.5 Points (-115)

WAGER: 1 Unit

Bones Hyland has not taken more than 10 field goals once all series. He’s hit over 10.5 points twice, but given that he’s taking around 7-8 shots per game, it is tough to back on him to crack 10.5 points even with half of them coming from three-point range.

Fade Bones and make this your NBA bet of the day.

Nikola Jokic & Draymond Green OVER 20.5 Total Rebounds (-170)

WAGER: 3 Units

This is as close to a lock as you can get.

Jokic and Draymond Green have combined for 21+ rebounds just once this series, but Jokic could crack this number on his own in any given game. He is going to play 40+ minutes tonight if need be, and Green is reportedly in consideration to start at center.



If the Warriors really go small-ball, this is happening without a doubt.

Warriors vs Nuggets Game 5 Game Props

Warriors: OVER 117.5 Points (-110)

WAGER: 1 Unit

The Warriors have gone over this number in every single game thus far and are going back home to finish the job against a certifiably weaker opponent. This line is actually more favorable than Under 117.5 points (-120) which may seem fishy, but the only logical explanation is exhaustion after leaving Denver’s elevation.

This game is not a back-to-back, and their “death lineup” should be fully capable of coming up with enough points regardless of the outcome.


PREVIOUSLY: Warriors vs Nuggets Game 4 Props

The first-round series between the Golden State Warriors and Denver Nuggets is about as star-studded as they come.

On one hand, you have Stephen Curry, a two-time league MVP who is widely considered to be the greatest shooter in NBA history. On the other is Nikola Jokic, the reigning MVP and a likely candidate to win it again this season.

With these great players and more in this series, it’s excellent for prop betting. You can always rely on stars to shine the brightest in the postseason, and that’s what they’ve done through three games.

Here are our favorite prop bets for Game 4 between the Warriors and Nuggets.

Warriors vs Nuggets Game 4 Player Props

Jordan Poole, Warriors: OVER 22.5 Points (-110)

WAGER: 1 Unit

Rather than focusing on well-known stars for our first player prop, we’re going to examine an emerging one. That’s Warriors guard Jordan Poole, who leads the team in scoring through Game 3. The 22-year-old has burst onto the scene in his first NBA Playoffs appearance, averaging 28.7 points per game and shooting 59.1% from deep.

Poole’s points prop has been set at 22.5, which feels like a steal considering he’s scored at least 27 points in each game of this series.

He’ll continue to see the same kind of shot volume, so as long as he can stay hot from outside, this mark should be well within reach. Back Poole to crush the Over with your NBA bet of the day.

Nikola Jokic, Nuggets: OVER 52.5 Points + Assists + Rebounds (-105)

WAGER: 1 Unit

This is a huge total, but if there’s anybody who can hit it, it’s Jokic. The 27-year-old big is a stat-stuffer extraordinaire, and in his most recent performance, he would’ve hit the Over on this prop with his points and rebounds alone.

So far in this series, Jokic is averaging 29.3 points, 13 rebounds, and 5 assists per game. Those numbers fall a tad short of the total we’re aiming for with this prop, but he’s proven that he’s more than capable of clearing the bar.

Facing a potential sweep, look for Jokic to step up and do everything he can to extend this series to at least a fifth game.

Warriors vs Nuggets Game 4 Game Props

Warriors 1H Moneyline (-150)

WAGER: 1 Unit

One reason why the Warriors have been so successful in this series thus far has to do with the way they’ve started games. Golden State has won the first half in all three games, and they’ve looked particularly strong in the second quarter.

Unless they suddenly go cold, I have a hard time seeing how they’ll fail to go into the break with a lead. Denver simply doesn’t have the firepower to keep up with them as currently constructed.


PREVIOUSLY: Warriors-Nuggets Game 3 Props

Parlaying Game 2 went well but not well enough. Hitting on Stephen Curry’s Points+Rebounds+Assists Over was a rush and covered for missing Jordan Poole’s Under and Denver winning by a 6+ point margin.

Nevertheless, we ride into Nuggets-Warriors Game 3 with more bets at our fingertips and an edge to gain after a wonky Game 2 that saw Jokic ejected mid-game. Let us take advantage of these peculiar lines and win some cold hard cash!

Warriors vs Nuggets Game 3 Player Props

Draymond Green: OVER 22.5 Points+Rebounds+Assists (-120)

WAGER: 2 Units

Green is going to hit this if the game is in any way competitive. He cleared it well in Game 1 by amassing 27 on just 7 totals shots in 29 minutes and fell short with just 15 on 5 shots in 30 minutes in Game 2.

Presume this game is closer than a double-digit blow-out and it is easy to see the player who averaged over 22.5 Points+Rebounds+Assists throughout the regular season crossing the line in Game 3.

Kevon Looney: OVER 4.5 Rebounds (+100)

WAGER: 1 Unit

Looney recorded 7 rebounds in Game 1 then just 1 in Game 2. He has not played more than 15 minutes in either match and shouldn’t play much tonight but 4.5 rebounds is easy to cross for a player who averaged 7.3 in 21.1 minutes per game during the regular season.

In each of the Warriors’ four matchups with Denver prior to the playoffs, Looney crossed the mark of 4.5 rebounds albeit, in more minutes per game than he is seeing now. Looney’s low minutes in the first two games have him fresh in case they need to play him more and in this past game, he wasn’t necessary after Jokic’s ejection.

All-in-all, half of the rebounds necessary can realistically come in one possession. Low double-digit minutes are more than enough to hit here.

Warriors vs Nuggets Game 3 Game Props

Denver Nuggets or Golden State Warriors Win by 1-5 Points (+190)

WAGER: 2 Units

This is as favorable a bet as they come. You receive a 10-point spread outcome on a game where the line is just 2.5 points.

While I have Denver +2.5 in my Nuggets-Warriors Game 3 predictions, this bet would be preferred given that the expectation should be that this game winds up close presuming that the reigning MVP actually stays on the court for the fourth quarter. Golden State has blown out Denver early on at home but with the Nuggets’ home-court advantage and fresh legs, this one should win up a nailbiter.


PREVIOUS GAME 2 PROPS

Game 2 of the matchup between the Golden State Warriors and Denver Nuggets is soon underway, and we at The Game Day have the perfect player props to win big. Game 1 was essentially a blowout as the Warriors took a 20-point lead into the fourth quarter and held on to take a 1-0 series lead, but will that be the case in Game 2?

Warriors vs Nuggets Game 2 Player Props

Stephen Curry, Warriors: OVER 28.5 Points+Rebounds+Assists (-125)

WAGER: 2 Units

Stephen Curry came off of the bench in Game 1 yet still played 22 minutes and took 13 shots. It is clear that the team is comfortable enough after his extended absence to give him some solid run, and that should only increase in Game 2 which should be much closer.

Curry tallied 23 points, rebounds, and assists in Game 1, which was just under his game total of 23.5. It should be expected that he crushes the line of 28.5 as his usage increases, and hopefully, he makes a higher percentage of his looks.

Jordan Poole, Warriors: UNDER 2.5 Threes (+105)

WAGER: 1 Unit

Jordan Poole went 9-for-13 from the field and 5-for-7 from three-point range in Game 1. My hunch is that the Nuggets make it more of a priority to stop Poole while forcing Andrew Wiggins to take more than 11 shots and potentially lose the game with his poor decision-making.

Poole is talented enough to hit this Over easily, but if the attention is drawn to him, he’s savvy enough to pass out of trouble. Also, Curry will be taking more shots this game, making it less of a priority to have the ball in Poole’s hands.

Warriors vs Nuggets Game 2 Game Props

Denver Nuggets Win by 6 or More Points (+410)

WAGER: 0.5 Units

The Warriors crushed the Nuggets in Game 1, but that relied on a bad Nikola Jokic game where he shot below 50% on 25 attempts. He went 0-for-4 from three, and he should also attempt much more than just two free-throw attempts.

This game is screaming for a bounce-back performance for the reigning MVP, and it is likely that the Warriors do not repeat such an efficient offensive attack.


PREVIOUS GAME 1 PROPS

The Golden State Warriors and Denver Nuggets meet up in the first game of their playoff matchup with healthy rosters on both sides. Stephen Curry will be activated and add his unique talent back to a Warriors roster desperate for its star point guard.

Denver has their 2022 roster ready to go but will not be returning core, injured pieces Jamal Murray or Michael Porter Jr. at any point in this postseason. This lack of an ace in the hole will likely prevent them from advancing too far in this series, but anything could happen.

Which players will shine in this Western Conference showdown? Let’s explore some of the best Warriors vs Nuggets prop bets for this game.

All NBA gameday odds are provided by Caesars Sportsbook and current as of Saturday, April 16, 6 p.m. ET.

Warriors vs Nuggets Game 1 Player Props

Stephen Curry, Warriors: OVER 2.5 Turnovers (+150)

WAGER: 1 Unit

Curry averages 3.1 turnovers per game for his career and 3.2 per game this season. While his minutes may be limited in the first game back from his foot injury, Curry should still play around 25-30, which will be enough to hit this Over.

Rust should be expected in his first game back to full-speed action one way or another, whether it be his shot or how well he sees passing lanes.

This bet runs the risk of Curry re-injuring himself mid-game (much like any Curry Over), but he says it is a matter of pain tolerance at this point and if anything, the injury might cause more issues in future games if aggravated.

Given the potential that Curry takes some time to adjust, this is our NBA bet of the day.

Will Barton, Nuggets: OVER 2.5 Threes (+105)

WAGER: 2 Units

Plus-money on a player who in 32.1 minutes per game averaged 2.2 threes? Take that. Will Barton should play nearly 40 minutes this game given his versatility as a swingman who can guard multiple positions and score from all over the court.



Barton’s shooting will be needed in what should be a high-scoring game, and especially while Nikola Jokic is off the court. Barton attempted 6.1 threes per game during the regular season, and it would not be a surprise if he attempted double-digits in the first game of this series.

Warriors vs Nuggets Game 1 Game Props

Overtime: Yes (+1200)

WAGER: 0.25 Units

While overtime is unlikely, (+1200) is a juicy line for a game which could end up quite close. The margin of victory for either team should be within five points if this game given that they are evenly matched across their strengths and weaknesses.

Denver can attack Golden State’s lack of size, while Golden State can unleash a Curry-led offense that is almost impossible to stop from the perimeter. This battle of offensive titans should be close.
