Over 4.5 Rebounds (-102, FanDuel)
Although Stephen Curry has only eclipsed the NBA player props total of 4.5 rebounds once in his last four games played, he is still averaging 5.4 boards per game on the season. The fact that both the Warriors and Suns are among the top three defenses in terms of points allowed and opponent shooting percentages leads one to believe that there will be plenty of rebounding opportunities in this matchup. In a matchup between these teams in early December, Curry finished with five boards.
Bettors should be sure to check the OddsShopper Tool before placing this wager. At the time of writing, the favorable -102 odds are 18 cents better value than any other price in the market. Awesemo’s projections give this prop bet an expected ROI of 12%.

Over 30.5 Points (-106, FanDuel)
The first two times that the Warriors faced the Suns this season came during a poor shooting stretch for Stephen Curry. He has since gotten back on track in a big way. The NBA player props line of 30.5 points may seem absurdly high, but Curry has in fact scored no fewer than 30 in three straight games coming in. Of course, when making NBA betting picks on the greatest three-point shooter in history, one has to remember than points can pile up quickly.
While Awesemo’s projections don’t lend a huge edge on this wager, they do believe Curry will exceed the betting line 53% of the time. The fact that Golden State is likely to be without both Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole will lead to Curry having to take on more of a scoring load than he might with a full complement of teammates around him.
Under 5.5 Assists (-140, FanDuel)
On the season to date, Stephen Curry has averaged 5.9 assists per game. That mark sits nearly one-half of an assist higher than the Christmas Day NBA player props total of 5.5. However, with the Warriors dealing with key player absences like just about every other team, Curry may not be able to dish out as many helpers to teammates. Unfortunately, the NBA betting market appears to agree with Awesemo’s under prediction. Despite an exact projection of 5.20 assists leading to an expected win probability of 60%, the additional juice required to be the under saps the ROI on this wager. Fortunately, OddsShopper can help point bettors to optimal -140 odds. At that price point, this is still considered to be a positive ROI prop bet.
