NBA Championship Preview and Predictions - Warriors vs. Raptors

There are any number of ways to bet on Game 3. The Warriors are currently favored by six points on the pointspread and the total line has been set at 213 points. Betting the moneyline straight-up favors Golden State at -250 with the odds on Toronto set at +210.

For adventurous bettors looking for a bigger return, there are a pair of scoring props with some lucrative returns for anyone that can make the right predictions.

2019 NBA Finals Game 3 Margin of Victory

The Raptors won the series opener 118-109 as slight 1.5-point home favorites. Following the nine-point win, they lost the next game 109-104 as 2.5-point favorites at home. The total went OVER 212.5 points in Game 1 and its ended as a PUSH on 213 points in Sunday’s loss.

The best odds on the board for the margin of victory in Game 3 favor the Warriors in a rout by 22 points or more at +550. The next best odds are set at +650 that Golden State wins this game by one to three points.

If you are going with Toronto to win Game 3 SU, the best odds on the margin are +850 that it wins by one to three points. The longest odds for any team are +5000 that the Raptors cruise to a 19 to 21 point win.

This type of prop is the ultimate teaser since there are odds posted for any number of options in three-point increments. This makes cashing a ticket all the more difficult given just how quickly any lead could change in the closing minutes if not seconds of the game. The best strategy is to first determine which team will win. Next, you need to decide if the game will remain close or turn into a blowout. Those two factors can begin the process of narrowing things down.

One big factor for Wednesday is Golden State’s injury situation. Kevin Durant remains out of the lineup and Klay Thompson is listed as questionable. A smaller factor is the loss of center Kevon Looney for the remainder of the series. This could open the door for a SU play on Toronto.

If you bump the Raptors’ margin of victory up to four to six points the odds jump to +1100, which is the sweet spot for me in this prop.

2019 NBA Finals Game 3 Total Points Scored

The total for Game 3 is set at 213 points, but the best odds on the board for this prop are +365 for UNDER 196 or OVER 232 points. The odds for the total points scored that is the closest to the actual betting line are +600 for 212 to 216 points. Seeing how Game 2 ended as a PUSH, this could be the best way to go.

Two factors that could keep the scoring low on Wednesday night is Toronto’s defensive blueprint for winning Game 1 and Golden State’s injury situation. Thompson is averaging 19.5 point a game in the postseason and he has scored a combined 46 points in the first two games of this series. Any hamstring injury is unpredictable even if he can go on Wednesday night.

I am stretching the odds in this prop to +850 that the total points scored falls between 202 to 206.
