The 2021-22 NBA season is in full swing. Monday's basketball action features a showdown between the Milwaukee Bucks and Atlanta Hawks.
Here's three of the best prop bets for Bucks-Hawks, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Bucks vs Hawks Player Props
1. Giannis Antetokounmpo - Points: Over 30.5 (-102)
Giannis Antetokounmpo is playing some of his best basketball of the season over recent weeks. The NBA MVP contender is averaging 32.3 points per game over his last 10 outings. Considering how Antetokounmpo hit the over for this prop seven times during that stretch, it's realistic that he could do it once more tonight. The Hawks are also losers of eight of their last 10 games and have given up the 11th-most points to power forwards this season. Unless his momentum comes to an abrupt stop, expect another big outing for Antetokounmpo.
2. Trae Young - Threes Made: Over 2.5 (-118)
It's no secret that Trae Young loves to shoot the ball from range, proven by his 7.4 three-point per game attempts this season. While the Bucks have a solid defense, they're surrendering the most threes made to point guards this season. Combine that with the fact that Young is averaging 2.7 made threes this season, it's looking like the perfect storm for him to hit the over. He also made eight shots from beyond the arc the first time he played Milwaukee this season, so only time will tell if he can have another noteworthy performance.
3. John Collins - Rebounds: Under 8.5 (-122)
When he puts his mind to it, John Collins can put up a double-double on any given night. Unfortunately, that hasn't been the case lately due to his rebound numbers dropping. Over his last seven games, Collins has averaged 6.7 rebounds — failing to hit the over in all but one of those outings. He only picked up six boards the last time these two teams met and will have to deal with Antetokounmpo — one of the NBA's best rebounders — throughout the night. Barring an unexpected performance, it seems likelier for Collins to hit the under here.
