Warriors PG Stephen Curry

THE PICK: Over 5.5 Rebounds (-115)

With Kevin Durant off the floor this season, Steph is averaging 6.2 rebounds per 36 minutes, 7% above his season average. And now down 2-1 with no end to KD’s tunnel-only appearances in sight, I’m not sure Steve Kerr can afford to sit Curry for even the five minutes he sat in Game 3.

The Warriors tend to clean up well after a loss in the playoffs. That combined with getting back Klay Thompson’s defensive prowess should force the Raptors into the misses that eluded them in Game 3, in which they shot 52%. Sharp money is also on the under, which is usually a good sign for the over on rebound props.

Curry has grabbed six-plus boards in five of his past seven games and six of his past 11; I think his odds are somewhere in the middle and would play this up to -145.

I usually throw a few more prop picks in the Action Network App throughout the night as I do more research and lineup news trickles in, so be sure to follow me there.
