The Golden State Warriors regained home-court advantage in the 2022 NBA Finals with their win over the Boston Celtics on Friday night. They have won the third quarter in each of the first four games of the series, but they have only outscored Boston by a single point overall. Star point guard Steph Curry poured in 43 points in Game 4, knocking down seven 3-pointers in the process. His over-under for 3-pointers in Game 5 (9 p.m. ET, Monday) has been set at 5.5 in the latest NBA prop odds at Caesars Sportsbook.
Curry has gone over that total in three of the four games so far in the NBA Finals 2022, so should you be including that in your NBA Finals prop bets?

He is one of the best shooters in NBA history, but he has struggled mightily during this series. Thompson shot 6 of 14 from the field for 15 points in Game 1 before going 4 of 19 for 11 points in Game 2.
He struggled with consistency in the last two games as well, going 7 of 17 in both contests.
