The NBA Finals could end Thursday night. It’s always a chilling proposition when the road team has its sights on ending the series. The crowd takes on a new energy, especially in a passionate city like Boston.

This Golden State Warriors core is no stranger to winning the Finals on the road. Two of the three times the modern-era Warriors won a championship, they did so in their opponents building. On top of that, both times Golden State has recently lost in the NBA Finals, the series was closed out in the Warriors’ arena.

Golden State will be more familiar with the energy of a close out game, yet Boston’s young guns and savvy vets should be ready for the challenge.

Here are my four favorite bets for this evening’s possible closeout game.

Warriors (+3.5)

Before the series, I took Golden State to win in six games and I’ll stay committed to that pick here. Boston’s offense, plagued by turnovers and inefficient interior shooting, doesn’t have the firepower to stick with the Warriors for an entire series.

The Boston crowd will do what it can to inject some life into their team, though that didn’t work in Game 4. Sometimes young teams tend to play tense in front of their own home crowd. If Golden State senses blood in the water early, Kerr and the seasoned Warriors will be ready to pounce on the young Celtics.

At worst, I expect a close game and will gladly take the four point spread.

Andrew Wiggins over 7.5 rebounds 

This number sits at an interesting crossroads after the last two games in this series. In Game 5, Wiggins nabbed 13 rebounds. In Game 4, he topped that with a season-high 16 boards. This recent rebounding barrage has come out of seemingly nowhere – Wiggins had only one double-digit rebound game during the entire regular season.

With increased playing time and an extra incentive under the pressure of playoff intensity, Wiggins has blossomed into a monster on the glass. He posted two double-digit rebound games against Memphis and two against Dallas in the Western Conference Finals. In his last 13 games, Wiggins is averaging 8.1 rebounds, but that number is being dragged down by just one rebound in the Warriors' 39-point loss to the Grizzlies.

I don’t know that his sudden transformation into Bill Russell in the box score continues, but I like Wiggins to at least hit this number.

Klay Thompson over 1.5 assists 

The Warriors sharpshooter is a historically great player, yet he’ll rarely be recognized in the annals of history for his passing or playmaking. Thompson, instead, will always be thought of for his long range shooting and defense.

Don’t discount, however, his chances to toss a few assists in a big game like this. He has topped 1.5 assists in 13 of his last 17 games. As a player with a penchant for exploding in Game 6 throughout his career, Thompson will have his eye on the basket, but plenty of Celtics flying his way as well. Within the flow of the Warriors offense, he should be able to toss two dimes.

Robert Williams under 8.5 points 

The Celtics’ center isn’t known for his scoring ability and does most of his damage on putbacks and “gimmes”. In this series, he’s averaging 7.0 points per game and he had just two points in the closing game of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Most importantly, he’s nursing a knee injury that the Celtics staff is hoping holds up throughout the rest of the NBA Finals. Williams has seen his game time fluctuate and he’s seen under 15 minutes of play in some recent playoff games. He’s played over 30 minutes the last two games, but still averaged just 8.5 points on those nights.

With the Celtics’ backs against the wall tonight, I would not be surprised to see some of Williams’ minutes siphoned off and re-directed to Al Horford.
