Here's three of the best prop bets for the Bucks-Bulls game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Bucks vs Bulls Player Props
1. Bobby Portis - 3+ Made Threes (+188)
Two games back, Bucks forward Bobby Portis nailed four 3-pointers to cash a big underdog prop. The big man made an amazing eight 3-pointers the previous game, and he's taken at least seven long-range shots in each of the Bucks' last four games. The Bulls' perimeter defense is among the worst in the league, allowing 36.4% on 3-point shots including nearly 40% over their last three games. Like the last winner, rather than lay heavy odds (-180) for Porter to make 2-or-more 3-pointers, take the big plus price that he'll sink at least three.
2. DeMar DeRozan - Points: Over 28.5 (-116)
DeMar DeRozen has cooled off a bit since the All-Star break when he became the first player in NBA history to score 35-plus points while shooting better than 50% from the field in seven consecutive games. But he's the go-to-guy tonight as a top-five scorer in the league in a meaningful division clash. DeRozen scored 35 points against the Bucks without making a 3-pointer in their only meeting this season, a 94-90 Bucks win Jan. 21. The Bucks and Bulls are both top five in offensive efficiency, and DeRozen is going to take more than 20 shots tonight. He's hitting a solid 54.6% FG over his last eight games including a 61.8% true shooting percentage..
3. Khris Middleton - Made Threes: Over 2.5 (-112)
Khris Middleton's scoring floor is about as reliable as it gets, as he's consistently near his scoring average of 19.6 points. He also takes the most 3-ponters per game (6.5) on the Bucks, and has a solid shot to make at least three 3's for the fourth straight game against the Bulls' poor perimeter defense.
