Tuesday's NBA schedule includes the TNT double-header starting with the Washington Wizards at Milwaukee Bucks at 7:30 p.m. EST. The Bucks (31-21) are a 11-point favorite over the Wizards (23-26), and the total has been bet up sharply to 229.5 on FanDuel Sportsbook.
The Wizards are playing tonight without leading scorer Bradley Beal (23.2 PPG), who has a sprained wrist.
Here's three of the best prop bets for the Wizards-Bucks game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Wizards vs Bucks Player Props
1. Giannis Antetokounmpo - Points: Over 30.5 (-108)
Antetokounmpo is third in NBA scoring with 28.8 points per game, and top-10 in rebounding with 11.2 per contest. The MVP candidate also chips-in 5.8 assists per game, and his MVP odds are now +410 in a tight four-player race. This is a great matchup for the Bucks star to explode, as Washington has moved their best defensive big man Gafford to more of a reserve role the past month. Thomas Bryant is picking up more minutes following his rehab from a torn ACL, and has played less than 10 games this season the past month. Over the last two weeks Washington's defensive efficiency rating is among the worst in the league. If you prefer an ever bigger scoring night from Giannis, play 35+ points scored at +220 odds.
2. First Quarter Winner / Match Winner - Bucks / Bucks (-190)
The Bucks 31 wins has them tied with the Bulls and Cavaliers on top; of the Central Division. Milwaukee concludes a 3-game home stand before heading West for four road games in six days. Having lost at Washington as a slight road favorite Nov. 7, the Bucks should come out with their best early. Instead of laying double-digits on the spread, or -670 on the Bucks moneyline for the game, bet the Bucks to win the first quarter and the game in a combo parlay. The defenseless Wizards are on a 0-5 straight up and against the spread (ATS) run allowing at least 109 points in five straight games.
3. Grayson Allen - 3+ Made Threes (+180)
Grayson Allen takes more three point shots (6.7 per game) than any Bucks player. He also is open more with teams focusing on Giannis, as Allen is tied for the NBA lead in taking the most wide-open 3-point shots at 4.6 per game. He made 3-of-8 against the Wizards back on Nov. 7, and no surprise if he takes at least that many tonight. Hitting nearly 40% from long range, Allen is a better bet and value to make at least three shots from beyond the arc at nearly 2/1 odds than over 1.5 three's at a -190 price.
