3 Best Prop Bets for Bucks vs Heat Game 3 on April 22 (Jimmy Butler Erupts on Home Floor)
By Tyler Maher
After splitting their first two games in Milwaukee, the Bucks and Heat head to Miami for Game 3 of their first-round playoff series on Saturday. This will be a pivotal game to see which team can take the lead in this series, especially after the first two games were both decided by similarly large margins.
Here are three of the best prop bets for Bucks-Heat Game 3, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Bucks vs Heat Game 3 Player Props
1. Jimmy Butler - Player Points: Over 28.5 (-113)
Butler averaged significantly more points at home (24.2) than he did on the road (21.6) this season, so expect him to flourish at FTX Arena today. He's already torched the Bucks for 60 points over the first two games combined on an efficient 23-for-39 shooting. He also managed to score 25 points in Game 2 despite only attempting 12 field goals, but look for him to be more aggressive with his shot in Game 3 after firing up 27 shots in the series opener. Butler knows he'll have to be at his best for Miami to win this game, especially if Giannis suits up, and will play accordingly.
2. Khris Middleton - Player Points: Under 19.5 (-115)
Middleton has been pretty boom-or-bust lately, which has already been on display in this series. After lighting up the Heat for 33 points in Game 1, he scored just 16 points in Game 2 while struggling with his shot (6-for-16). So which version of Middleton will show up for Game 3? No one knows for sure, but taking the Under on his points prop seems like a good idea. The veteran wing has gone under 19.5 points in four of his last five games and six of his last eight. If Giannis plays, back the Under here.
3. Player Rebounds - Bam Adebayo: Under 9.5 (-130)
Adebayo hasn't been much of a factor on the glass in this series with 14 rebounds over the first two games combined. He's now gone under 9.5 boards in five straight games and has reached double digits only four times over his last 23 games combined. That's a pretty big sample size (over a quarter of a season) where he's averaged just 7.1 RPG, so bank on the Under happening again.
