The Milwaukee Bucks have the chance to eliminate the Atlanta Hawks in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Saturday. The injury status on hobbled stars Giannis Antetokounmpo and Trae Young will once again shape how this game plays out.
Here's three of the best prop bets for Bucks-Hawks Game 6, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Bucks vs Hawks Game 6 Player Props
1. Khris Middleton - Rebounds: Over 8.5 (-138)
It appears likely that Antetokounmpo will be sidelined in Game 6, making Khris Middleton the team's No. 1 option once again. Middleton thrived under that burden with an all-around performance in Game 5, racking up 26 points, 13 rebounds and 8 assists. The two-time All-Star has made his presence felt on the boards during the playoffs, averaging 8.3 rebounds over 16 contests. He's also hit double-digit rebounds in each potential elimination game this playoffs, so expect him to have another big night as the Bucks hope to punch their Finals ticket.
2. Kevin Huerter - Points: Under 12.5 (+100)
Kevin Huerter's production hasn't been the strongest this series. He's hit the under on this points total in three of the five games so far, and his series-high is just 15 points. Huerter is coming off of an 8-point night in Game 5 despite playing nearly 38 minutes, which is concerning that he couldn't produce despite the heavy playing time. Now his star point guard teammate may suit up in Game 6, which will limit any looks the third-year wing sees on Saturday. Huerter's lack of scoring success against Milwaukee sets up the over as a risk worth avoiding.
3. Jrue Holiday - Assists: Over 10.5 (+118)
Jrue Holiday is another Buck stepping up with Antetokounmpo sidelined. The 12-year veteran dropped 13 dimes in Game 5, his third double-digit assist night this series alone. Holiday is having obvious success exploiting Atlanta's defense with and without Antetokounmpo in the lineup, which is encouraging heading into Game 6. He should have a heightened playmaking role with the two-time MVP likely sitting once again, and his assist numbers thus far against the Hawks make the plus-money on the over here especially attractive.
