In Game 1 of the NBA Finals, the Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors will face off on ABC at 9:00 p.m. ET. While we have seen Golden State numerous times in the Finals lately, Boston is making its first NBA Finals appearance since 2010.
Below, we'll take a look at some of the best player prop bets for Game 1 on Thursday night. All odds are courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
Draymond Green over 5.5 assists (-140)
Golden State is great in series openers at home. To win this game, the Warriors will need Green to facilitate for their scorers. He will always do whatever the Warriors need him to do for a win, and that usually means setting up others offensively. In the final two games of the last series, Green went over this total and I expect him to do so again tonight.
