The 2021 NBA season is in full swing. Wednesday's basketball action features a primetime matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and Milwaukee Bucks.

Here's three of the best prop bets for Knicks-Bucks, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Lakers vs Bucks Best Prop Bets

1. Talen Horton-Tucker - Points: Over 15.5 (-106)

Talen Horton-Tucker has acted as a spark plug for this Los Angeles Lakers team over the last two games. The third-year pro is putting up 22.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game during that span on an average of 32.0 minutes played. Horton-Tucker's volume alone gives this prop a great shot at cashing given he has shot the ball at least 14 times in both of his game played. Both of these squads rank within the top eight NBA teams in pace, which means there will be a lot of opportunities for Horton-Tucker to contribute on the offensive end. Ride the hot streak here and trust the young baller to score at least 16 points.

2. Giannis Antetokounmpo - Rebounds: Over 10.5 (-106)

The Milwaukee Bucks have been up-and-down all season and grabbing a win at home against the mighty Lakers would be a step in the right direction. A win likely means that Giannis Antetokounmpo steps up with a massive performance. Looking his rebounds prop is intriguing here. The Lakers are allowing the sixth-most opponent total rebounds per game (55.7) and don't have an answer for Giannis' size outside of Anthony Davis. The reigning NBA Finals MVP has posted at least 11 rebounds in three of his last four games and is a lock to see 35-plus minutes in this contest. Everything lines up for Antetokounmpo to dominate on the boards tonight.

3. Russell Westbrook - Points + Rebounds + Assists: Under 35.5 (-111)

This is tough because Russell Westbrook loves the spotlight and tends to have his best games in primetime matchups. However, this number is simply a bit too high. Westbrook has posted under 35.5 points, rebounds and assists in two of his last three games as he is beginning to struggle with his shot selections. The All-Star guard has shot just 13-for-30 (43.3%) over his last two games, which includes a 3-for-11 mark from 3-point range. It's hard to see Westbrook hitting the over on this prop unless he is able to drive the ball and rack up points in the paint. Back the under here as Westbrook may focus on dishing out the ball more than anything on Wednesday night.
