The 2020-21 NBA Playoffs continue on Tuesday, July 6 with a highly anticipated NBA Finals Game 1 matchup between the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns.

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

Bucks vs Suns Player Props

1. Khris Middleton - Points: Over 26.5 (-118)

Star player Giannis Antetokounmpo is listed as doubtful for Game 1 and that would be a major loss for this Bucks squad. However, that means there is an opportunity for wing Khris Middleton to step up and take over on the offensive end. The 29-year-old has been shooting well in the postseason and his coming off a 32-point performance in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Plus, he has proven he is not afraid to take on a leadership role when needed. As long as Middleton can hit some shots from behind the arc, he should have no trouble reaching this mark.

2. Devin Booker - Points: Under 28.5 (-116)

It's hard to fade one of the best young shooting guards in the league, but Devin Booker hasn't been quite right since injuring his nose in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals. Since that point, Booker has scored over 28.5 points just once, and that was mainly due to the fact that he had 11 free throw attempts in that outing. The 24-year-old now faces a much better defensive team and should continue to struggle shooting the basketball. Booker is capable of going off at any given moment, but don't rely on him to score over 28.5 points tonight.

3. P.J. Tucker - Rebounds: Over 6.5 (+114)

If Antetokounmpo is out for Game 1, no one receives a boost on the boards more than veteran forward P.J. Tucker. The 12-year pro has become a crucial part of this starting lineup and has played more than 30 minutes in seven of Milwaukee's last nine games. Tucker grabbed at least 7 rebounds in five of the team's six games against the Atlanta Hawks in the ECF. The Bucks need him to be strong in this series and there is no reason to believe he can't keep it going in Game 1 of the Finals.
