Friday's NBA slate of 2021-22 playoff games includes a showdown between the Milwaukee Bucks and Chicago Bulls. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Bucks as the 2.5-point road favorites over the Bulls.
Here are the three of the best prop bets for the Bucks-Bulls game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Bucks vs Bulls Player Props
1. DeMar DeRozan - Points: Over 29.5 (-110)
DeMar DeRozan shushed any doubters in Game 2 when he dropped 41 points on 16-of-31 shooting against the Bulls. With the Bulls returning home to the United Center, DeRozan has a great opportunity for another massive offensive performance. The 32-year-old has been stellar in Chicago lately, averaging 33.2 points in his last 16 home games. He hit the total in 10 of those appearances, which include 40- and 50-point efforts in two of his last five home contests. Add in the fact that he's finished with at least 40 points in two of his last three games against the Bucks and it's easy to see why bettors should like the over in this situation.
2. Giannis Antetokounmpo - Points + Rebounds: Under 49.5 (-122)
Giannis Antetokounmpo has been solid so far in this series, averaging 30 points and 17 rebounds in the first two contests. While he's capable of impressive numbers, expectations should be tempered on this combo prop. Antetokounmpo has only combined for at least 50 points and rebounds five times in his last 13 games. Game 2 was his first time accomplishing the feat since March 31. With momentum shifting in the Bulls' favor in Chicago, expect Antetokounmpo to hit the under here.
3. Nikola Vucevic - Rebounds: Over 11.5 (+104)
After struggling to gather boards to end the regular season, Nikola Vucevic has averaged an impressive 15 rebounds in the first two games of this series. Even though he's been battling against the likes of Antetokounmpo and Brook Lopez in the paint, Vucevic has managed to remain productive. At the end of the day, it seems like something has just clicked in Vucevic's mind and he's finally playing like the player the Bulls thought he was when they acquired him last season. With the hometown Chicago crowd giving him extra momentum, it could be another 12-plus-rebound game for Vucevic.
