Wednesday's NBA slate of playoff games includes a Game 2 showdown between the Chicago Bulls and Milwaukee Bucks. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Bucks as a 10 point favorite over the Bulls with the total sitting at 224.5 points.

Here's three of the best prop bets for the Bulls-Bucks game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Bulls vs Bucks Game 2 Prop Bets

1. DeMar DeRozan - Points: Over 27.5 (-116)

DeMar DeRozan was shut down in Game 1, scoring just 18 points on 6-of-25 FG shooting. That will change in Game 2, as the star guard will continue shooting, but with adjustments should find more open looks. DeRozan scored 40 points against the Bucks on April 5 when we anticipated more shots and scoring, and also 29 against Milwaukee on March 4.

2. Khris Middleton - Points: Under 21.5 (-112)

Khris Middleton was limited to 11 points and made just 1-of-7 three-pointers in the Bucks' low-scoring 93-86 Game 1 win. In fact, he's now reached his scoring average (20.1 PPG) in just two of his last nine games. Middleton's overall production is down with both Giannis and Jrue Holiday on the floor, and drawing the Bulls' best defender in Alex Caruso makes it a tougher task to score more.

3. First Basket - DeMar DeRozan (+950)

This is a big price to take for a high-scoring player to score the first basket, which includes free throws as the first points/basket. DeRozan will be the player the Bulls most want to get into an early rhythm and count on as their lead scorer. At nearly 10/1 odds, this is worth the risk/reward on a popular prop for less than a full unit bet on FanDuel Sportsbook.
