Celtics vs Warriors Game 1 Odds:
The 2022 NBA Finals Game 1 will tipoff this Thursday Night between the Boston Celtics vs Golden State Warriors and I’m ready to crush the books with these Expert NBA Picks, Predictions, and Player Prop Bets.
The NBA odds have the Warriors as a -3.5 point favorite against the spread and -160 on the moneyline. The latest over/under is sitting at 212.5 total points.
The betting public is loving Golden State as the home favorite in this one and they currently has 79% of their money behind the Warriors.
The public is also leaning heavily towards Golden State winning the NBA Championship because the daily futures odds just keep moving higher and higher. On the DraftKings Sportsbook, the latest odds have the Warriors as a -150 favorite to win the NBA Championship while the Celtics are a +130 underdog.
These two teams split the series 1-1 during the regular season. Back in March, Boston got the big 110-88 road win. Then way back in December, Golden State got the 111-107 road victory.
Celtics vs Warriors Game 1 Preview:
For Golden State, Stephen Curry has averaged 29.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.3 assists in the last 4 games he’s played against Boston.
For the Celtics, Jayson Tatum has averaged 31.0 points, 9.8 rebounds and 4 assists in the last 4 games he’s played against the Warriors.
Now let’s get into these NBA Finals Game 1 Player Props. My First prop bet is behind Draymond Green to go over the 5.5 assists at the -140 price.
Then my Second Player Prop is on Steph Curry. This is the one I’m personally doubling down, so to get free access to this prop, all you have to do is click here.
On Wednesday, the Celtics coach said that Robert Williams and Marcus Smart will both be listed as questionable for Game 1. As you probably already know, but Marcus Smart is the 2022 Defensive Player of The Year and the glue for this team. Even though they are 2-1 this NBA Playoffs without him on the floor, I think they’’ll need him healthy enough to play for any chance to win a ring this year.
In the 18 games the Celtics have played this postseason, they have the second best defense, that’s only giving up an average of 101 points per game, but offensively they’ve just been sub par, scoring an average of 107 points per game.
The Celtics are 6-1 straight up in their last 7 games against the Warriors. Boston is an impressive 12-1 against the spread in their last 13 games on the road.
Steve Kerr said on Wednesday that Otto Porter Jr., Gary Payton, and Andre Iguodala participated but will remain questionable for Game 1.
In the 16 games the Warriors have played this postseason, they’ve had the top offense that’s scoring an average of 114.5 points per game while giving up an average of 109 points per game on defense.
The Warriors are 5-1 against the spread in their last 6 games and the total has gone under in 11 of Golden State’s last 13 games against Boston.
