Game 3 of the 2022 NBA Finals will take place Wednesday night with the Golden State Warriors heading to the East coast to take on the Boston Celtics. The series is tied 1-1, which makes this contest the most pivotal one yet. Here's a look at how the public is betting this game, with odds and insights courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
The Warriors are getting most of the action agains the spread at +3.5. 61 percent of all bets are backing Golden State, accounting for 55 percent of the money coming in. This is surprising considering the Celtics have yet to lose back-to-back games this postseason and are returning home after two games in the Bay Area.
62 percent of bettors are taking the over at 212, despite the last game going under. The expectation might be that role players will play better at home, which favors Marcus Smart, Derrick White and Al Horford. That trio helped the Celtics win Game 1 and push the total over, so that could be the thinking here.
