3 Best Prop Bets for Bulls vs Bucks NBA Playoffs Game 5 on FanDuel Sportsbook (April 27)
Wednesday's NBA slate of Playoff games includes an exciting Game 5 showdown between the Chicago Bulls and Milwaukee Bucks. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Bucks as the 12-point home favorites over the Bulls.
Here's three of the best prop bets for the Bulls-Bucks game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Bulls vs Bucks Player Props
1. Giannis Antetokounmpo - Rebounds: Over 13.5 (-102)
Giannis Antetokounmpo's efforts on the boards during this series have been a big reason why the Bucks head into tonight up 3-1. He has posted at least 16 rebounds in three of the four games, including both home contests. The former NBA MVP is going to be motivated not to go back to Chicago and get the job done in front of the home fans. Not only that, but he is still facing a Bulls' defense that has allowed the third-highest defensive rebounding percentage in the NBA (79.8%). Chicago's inability to bring down offensive boards should allow for Giannis to feast once again.
2. DeMar DeRozan - Points: Under 29.5 (-106)
This one is tough. Without Alex Caruso and Zach LaVine available to play, DeMar DeRozan is going to do all he can to extend this series at least one more game. The only problem is that Milwaukee has been shutting him down one possession after another. DeRozan hit this over once in the series and it coincided with the only time he shot above 50.0% from the floor. Milwaukee allows the third-fewest points in the paint per game this season (43.1), which is causing DeRozan to focus solely on his mid-range game. The 32-year-old is in for a massive workload, but a 30-point game seems a bit out of reach.
3. Nikola Vucevic - Assists: Under 3.5 (-128)
It's interesting to see this number sit at 3.5 considering the fact that Nikola Vucevic hasn't posted 4 or more assists in a game since April 2. The Chicago big man will certainly have the ball in his hands more often without Caruso and LaVine, yet seeing him turn into a facilitator on offense would be surprising. The Bucks' ability to guard the rim is causing Vucevic to hang out by the perimeter more than usual. After all, he has attempted a total of 33 three-point attempts this series. The over would be the move here is Vucevic was in the paint ready to kick the ball out. That just hasn't been the case, though.
