The 2020-21 NBA Playoffs continue on Wednesday, June 23 with a highly anticipated Game 1 Eastern Conference Finals matchup between the Atlanta Hawks and Milwaukee Bucks.

Here's three of the best best player prop bets heading into Game 1, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Hawks vs Bucks Players Props

1. Clint Capela - Rebounds: Over 12.5 (-102)

Clint Capela averaged 10.3 rebounds per game in the Hawks' series against the Philadelphia 76ers, but he was also tasked with covering Joel Embiid. Capela's rebounding dropped given his tough matchup, but he should have no problem reaching this number tonight. Capela grabbed 13.4 rebounds per game in Atlanta's first-round matchup and benefits from not having a guard an All-Star at center any longer. The Hawks' big man also hit this number in both of the team's regular season games against the Bucks. Rely on Capela to get back to cleaning up on the boards.

2. Giannis Antetokounmpo - Points, Rebounds & Assists: Under 51.5 (-106)

It may seem wrong to fade one of the hottest players in the NBA right now, but this number is simply too high for Giannis Antetokounmpo to hit. In fact, he had more than 52.5 points, rebounds and assists just once in the Bucks' seven-game series against the Brooklyn Nets. While the two-time NBA MVP is averaging 28.8 points per game during the playoffs, he is not dishing out enough assists to cash the over on this prop. The Bucks' offensive leader is sure to have another massive series, but don't expect him to hit this number in Game 1 as each team tries to figure the other one out.

3. Trae Young - Assists: Over 9.5 (-110)

If NBA bettors learned anything from the Hawks' last playoff series, it is that Trae Young is not afraid to rack up assists by passing instead of taking heavily contested shots. The young point guard had at least 10 assists in five of the team's seven games against the 76ers and that trend continues tonight against the Bucks. Overall, he is averaging 10.4 assists per game during the postseason and has proven he will lean on his passing skills if he cannot get his shots to fall early in the game. Take a chance on this over.
