Game 7 tips off at 8 PM (Central) on TNT. The Warriors are 6.5-point favorites, as Chris Paul looms as a “Game Time Decision.” Bovada excluded Paul from the prop bets (perhaps wisely), so we will focus on Houston’s James Harden, only, and the three main (Scoring) superstars of the Golden State Warriors in our Game 7 player prop betting here at Maddux Sports.

Stephen Curry over/under 27.5 points
Stephen Curry scored 29 points in Game 6, as Klay Thompson was the major performer of the Splash Bros with 35-points. Curry is averaging 24.7 points per game in this series. He has scored 29, 22, and 28 the past three games, with a 35-point outburst preceding that in Game 3.
Will Curry have a night for the ages? Or will he be more pedestrian?
Golden State is becoming tougher to predict, given that we never know when it will simply ride the hot hands of Kevin Durant or Klay Thompson. While it is easy to envision Curry going atomic and dropping 30-plus, it is just as easy to imagine him allowing Thompson to do a lot of the work again. For that reason, we are calling a PUSH here.
Klay Thompson over/under 20.5 points
Klay Thompson has really heated up, but sometimes that is the case only for him to vanish just as quickly in the next game. But we don’t think that happens this time. Thompson has hit 13 of his last 21 threes, and while he might not absolutely blow up this game, 20.5 points is setting the bar low for a hot-shooting sharpshooter like Klay. We like the OVER.
Kevin Durant over/under 30 points
Kevin Durant might be the one to really show up in Game 7, but PJ Tucker has done a decent job on him defensively in this series. Durant had just 23 points in Game 6, and Andre Iguodala is sitting out Game 7, which hurts Durant’s prospects as he now will see more activity on the defensive end. But this is still Kevin Durant in a Game 7, with plenty to prove, both to his fans and his naysayers. We like the chances of Durant coming out for an incredibly huge game, as he and Thompson share the rock in a GSW win. OVER.
James Harden over/under 32.5 points
This seems like the Game 7 in which we see James Harden go absolutely bonkers and it still not be enough. Whether Paul plays or not, Harden is going to be extra-aggressive offensively, and even if he does not get the same number of whistles in the postseason, he has been hitting some incredibly tough shots. That, combined with the fact that the Rockets are defending its home court in this series’ final game, leads us to believe we see one of the truly historical performances from Harden all across the board, not just in scoring. OVER.
