On the backs of Draymond Green’s absence — and with two of the league’s most high-powered offenses — Game 3 between the Kings and Warriors is tied for the highest over/under in NBA postseason history.
The consensus market price for Kings vs. Warriors’ total is 240.5, including a market-best price vig of -110 at BetMGM.
Two other playoff games have reached these heights — each of these contests took place this side of the 2020s, when high tempo and transition three-pointers became the absolute norm.
The first instance was in the 2021 Eastern Conference play-in game between the Wizards and Pacers. The game finished 142 Wizards, 115 Pacers for a total of 257 points.
The second took place in Game 2 of a 2022 Western Conference first round series between the Grizzlies and Timberwolves, which went under by 20.5 points.
Overall, in NBA playoff games with a total at 230 points or higher, the under has gone 27-15 (64%). Had you wagered $100 on each of those unders, you’d be up $954. Of course, toggle that up or down based on your unit sizing. A $500 per game bettor would have been up $4,770 just by slamming these high totals.
