Andrew Wiggins (GSW) Over 11.5 Points + Luka Doncic (DAL) Over 0.5 Steals (+100)
I rarely ever include money lines in these kinds of plays but man the Warriors have been dominant at home. Currently sporting an 8-0 home playoff record, the Warriors have won 6/8 games by a margin of 10+ points, making -7 a pretty tempting bet as well. The Warriors have the veteran playoff leadership to understand that they cant allow this series to go any longer, I’m expecting the Warriors A game tonight. Andrew Wiggins has been a huge part of Golden State's success this postseason, all we’ve heard from the Warriors this postseason was that they believed that Wiggins had an “extra gear” and he’s finally showing it.
Wiggins has 12+ Points in 4/4 games this series and 12 of 15 total playoff games. Wiggins averaged 17.2 points during the regular season, and is able to hit this number even on his off nights. Despite missing a couple easy layups last game, he still ended up with 13 points on a lackluster shooting performance. I expect Wiggins to continue to hunt mismatches against Luka and aggressively attack the rim. Legitimately my only worry here is Stephen Curry dominating going off for 40 points, but Wiggins still should be able to reach this number on limited volume.
Luka steal has been another player prop that's been very consistent for me this postseason. Doncic has 1+ steal in 10 straight playoff games and 12 of 14 total this postseason. Additionally, Luka also has 2+ steals in 9 of those games. While the Warriors aren't the most turnover prone team in the world, the 40+ minute workload he will continue to see should generate multiple steal opportunities. Gotta keep riding this one until the wheels fall off.
