The Warriors are favored by 4.5 over the Raptors and the over/under is 212.5, according to FanDuel. The number has moved from 5.5 and 213 respectively. The teams are 1-1 for the series and against the spread. The total in the first game was easily over while the second game was two points shy. The second game had several periods where both teams could not score.

The prop bets for scoring have Fred VanVleet at 11.5. This is an increase of two points from last game. VanVleet have went over in his last four playoffs games. Draymond Green is listed at 12.5. If Klay Thompson does not play, I would take Green over. He will get more shots.

FanDuel is offering a Step Curry vs. Kawhi Leonard prop. Curry is listed at -156 and Leonard’s odds are +122. I lean toward Kawhi.

The money line for the game is Warriors -205 and Raptors +165. The Warriors should win so a money line play is the lean.

Not knowing if Klay Thompson will play makes you hesitant to give the points with the Warriors. Kevin Durant is ruled out of Game 3. Expect more production of DeMarcus Cousins in points and rebounds. Kyle Lowry will play aggressive and score 13 or more. Look for Danny Green to get 10 points.

The game has a under look to it without Klay. If he can go, then go over 212.5. Wait until 30 minutes before the game and make your play.
