3 Best Prop Bets for Celtics vs Bucks NBA Playoffs Game 4 on FanDuel Sportsbook (May 9)
Monday's NBA slate of Playoff games includes an exciting Game 4 showdown between the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Bucks as the 1-point home favorites over the Celtics.
Here's three of the best prop bets for the Celtics-Bucks game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.
Celtics vs Bucks Player Props
1. Al Horford - Rebounds: Over 9.5 (+108)
People may see that Al Horford has been guarding Giannis for most of this series and want to back away from betting any overs on his prop bets. It has helped his rebounding numbers out tremendously, though. Guarding Anteokounmpo has positioned Horford under the rim on almost every shot and it has led to the 35-year-old posting double-digit boards in all three games of this series. Milwaukee also allowed the seventh-most rebounds to opposing power forwards during the regular season and that trend has continued into the playoffs. Horford is in line to see 35-plus minutes again, so back him to have a big rebounding performance.
2. Giannis Antetokounmpo - Points + Rebound: Over 43.5 (-120)
Giannis Antetokounmpo woke up with a massive game on Saturday afternoon as he dropped 42 and 12 rebounds in a crucial win. He found ways to get to the rim and either make contested layups or get to the free throw line. Keep in mind Giannis averages 31.5 points to go along with 12.5 rebounds at home this season, which soars above his averages on the road. The fact that Antetokounmpo is putting up more than 12 rebounds a night during the playoffs means he only needs to score around 30 points to cash the over. That's certainly doable for the reigning NBA Finals MVP.
3. Brook Lopez - Mades Threes: Under 0.5 (-108)
This one could get sweaty down the stretch, but it's worth noting that Brook Lopez has yet to drain a three-pointer in this series (0-for-2). More importantly, he hasn't even attempted a shot beyond the arc since Game 1. Lopez is on the court to use his size in order to grab rebounds and make offensive putbacks. He is shooting 29.4% from three-point range during the playoffs and has regularly been guarded by a standout defender in Robert Williams. None of this bodes well for his chances of making an impact from long range in Game 4. Taking the risk of losing on one bucket is worth it in this case.
