While Steph Curry is going to get most of the praise for his 2022 NBA Finals performance thus far, there are several Golden State Warriors players who have been quietly making large impacts against the Boston Celtics. Andrew Wiggins scored eight straight points in the first quarter on Friday and is tied for the team lead with an average of 8.5 rebounds per game in the series. Wiggins has scored in double figures in all four games, including a 17-point, 16-rebound double-double in Game 4.

His over-under for combined points and rebounds has been set at 24.5 for tonight's game at 9 p.m. ET in the latest 2022 NBA Finals prop odds at Caesars Sportsbook. Wiggins has gone over that total in three of the four games thus far, so should you be backing the over with your NBA Finals prop bets? Before betting any NBA props for Celtics vs. Warriors Game 5, you need to see the Warriors vs. Celtics prop predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

Top NBA player prop bets for Celtics vs. Warriors

After simulating Game 5 of Warriors vs. Celtics 10,000 times, the model projects Golden State shooting guard Klay Thompson to go under 19.5 points at -105 odds. He missed nearly 31 months of playing time due to leg injuries before finally returning to the court in January. Thompson has not been the same player that he was before the injuries.

He is not getting as much lift on his jump shots, resulting in many attempts clanging off the front of the rim. Thompson has been below 50 percent from the floor in every game this series and is now shooting 35.8 percent overall in the NBA Finals. He has gone under 19.5 points in seven of his last nine games, and the model expects that trend to continue on Monday night.
