Arguably the best game in the NBA on Wednesday night takes place in Denver with the Golden State Warriors and defending champion Denver Nuggets facing off.
With Jamal Murray (hamstring) likely out for the Nuggets, this could be an interesting game to bet in the prop market.
I’m focused on a pair of Warriors players – including superstar Steph Curry – for two of my plays, as well as one Nuggets player who has stepped up recently.

Warriors vs. Nuggets best NBA prop bets today
- Steph Curry OVER 4.5 3-Pointers Made
- Andrew Wiggins OVER 3.5 Rebounds
- Michael Porter Jr. OVER 25.5 Points, Rebounds and Assists
Steph Curry OVER 4.5 3-Pointers Made
It’s hard to be hotter than Curry has been to open this season. He’s averaging 30.9 points per game while shooting 53.0 percent from the field and 47.5 percent from 3.
Steph has made at least four 3-pointers in every game this season, clearing this prop on six occasions. He’s hit seven 3s in back-to-back games.
As long as Curry keeps taking a high volume of triples (12.4 per game this season), he’s going to clear this prop with how hot he’s been.
Andrew Wiggins OVER 3.5 Rebounds
Andrew Wiggins hasn’t looked like himself this season, but he’s starting to show some returns on the glass, grabbing five or more boards in three consecutive contests.
Denver is a good rebounding team (seventh in the NBA in rebounding percentage), but the Warriors will need everyone to rebound against Nikola Jokic and Aaron Gordon in this one. I’ll take a shot on Wiggins to pick up four or more boards in this one.
Michael Porter Jr. OVER 25.5 Points, Rebounds and Assists
Michael Porter Jr. has really stepped up with Murray ailing, and he’s easily cleared this prop in three straight games.
Here’s a look at MPJ’s PRA numbers in those matchups:
- 34 PRA – 22 points, nine rebounds, three assists
- 35 PRA – 27 points, six rebounds, two assists
- 34 PRA – 24 points, nine rebounds, one assist
The scoring has been key, but MPJ is also hitting the glass at a high rate recently. I think he can clear this prop against a Warriors team that can be prone to high-scoring affairs.
