NBA Finals Props: Jaylen Brown, Derrick White, Jordan Poole

There are only 12 players you can make a case to bet on for the rest of the 2022 NBA Finals.

The five starters for the Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors and their best bench scorers are the only ones to trust.

Both starting lineups received a majority of the minutes, while Derrick White and Jordan Poole are the only bench contributors that have been consistent enough to trust on player props.

Poole and White are both on my list of picks for Game 5 because they are vital to either side coming away with a win inside Chase Center.

Jaylen Brown is my favorite player from both lineups on Monday night. Brown's three-point prop sits at a nice price, and there is a special listed at DraftKings Sportsbook that goes hand-in-hand with the three-point prop.

NBA Finals Prop Picks

Overall Record: 48-54

Jaylen Brown Over 2.5 Threes (-120)

Jaylen Brown 3+ 1st Half Threes (+600)

Jaylen Brown To Hit Consecutive 3 Pointers (+1400)

We will know in the first half if Jaylen Brown will hit his three-point prop.

In Game 2, Brown knocked down a trio of triples in the half. He all four of his threes in Game 3 before halftime.

Brown has been a first-half dynamo from three-point range when he is hot, so it makes perfect sense to chase his first-half threes prop as well.

If you are betting Brown's three-point prop, the first-half special is worth a sprinkle because of the trend set in Games 2 and 3.

I'm also sprinkling on the Brown to hit consecutive three-pointers prop. He needs to score them back-to-back with no interruptions, but he has the chance to do that if the Celtics look to get him going in the first half.

Robert Williams Over 7.5 Rebounds (-125)

Robert Williams leads the Celtics in rebounds in the NBA Finals with 30.

He is third overall in the series behind Kevon Looney and Andrew Wiggins.

Williams is coming off a 12-rebound performance in Game 3 and he should easily reach that total again with the amount of three-point shots that have been flying in the series.

Williams pulled in eight or more rebounds in four of his last eight starts. Three of them came when he played more than 25 minutes.

As long as the minutes are there, which they were in Games 3 and 4, Williams should easily hit this prop.

Derrick White Over 1.5 Threes (-140)

Derrick White has been a vital part of the Celtics rotation over the last two series.

In fact, White recorded his second highest minutes total of the postseason in Game 4. He was on the floor for 35 minutes.

White is shooting at a 50 percent clip from three-point range in the NBA Finals and he hit multiple threes in five of the last six games.

White shot 7-for-12 from deep in Games 1 and 2 inside Chase Center. He should be on the floor for over 30 minutes again in Game 5 and will likely attempt the most threes off the Boston bench, which is why I feel comfortable laying the price on this prop.

Jordan Poole Over 12.5 Points (-110)

Jordan Poole reached double figures in each of the last three games.

Poole broke out in Game 2 with 17 points in Game 2. He scored 10 points in Game 3 and recorded 14 points in Game 4.

Poole's production off the bench is needed for the Warriors to properly support Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson to finally get an edge in the series.

Poole had over 12 field-goal attempts in each of the two games in which he had over 13 points in the series. I expect a similar volume on Monday with the series lead on the line.
