The Eastern Conference playoffs continue Monday between the Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat with Game 2. The spread and odds show the Bucks as a 5-point favorite at FanDuel Sportsbook. Milwaukee won Game 1 in overtime, 109-107, and the adjusted series odds show the Bucks as a -500 favorite.

But sports bettors are attracted to other popular prop bets as the playoffs and series continue.

Using props and odds from FanDuel Sportsbook, here are three player prop bets for Game 2 of the Heat-Bucks series.

1. Jimmy Butler - Under 23.5 Points (-108)

Jimmy Butler rarely sees a shot he doesn't like. The Heat guard took 22 shots in Game 1, but he made just four field goals. He's not a primary 3-point option for the Heat and scored seven of his 17 points from the free-throw line while playing more than 45 minutes. In the Heat's last seven road games, Butler has failed to score at least 20 points six times.

2. Trevor Ariza - Under 10.5 Points (-128)

The Bucks’ defensive scheme is built to make things tough around the rim with the help of 7-footer Brook Lopez and last season’s Defensive Player of the Year Giannis Antetokounmpo. The stats prove as much, as the Bucks out-scored the Heat 56-24 in the paint in Game 1 and limit opponents to the second-worst shooting percentage from inside the restricted area. Trevor Ariza took just eight shots and scored 8 points. He's a secondary scoring option at best and is not a good option to score more.

3. Tyler Herro - Over 10.5 Points (+100)

The Bucks allowed the most made threes (14.8 per game) on the third-most three-point attempts (38.6 per game) this season. Miami took 50 three pointers in Game 1 and made 20. Duncan Robinson and Tyler Herro take the most threes for the Heat and both can go off in Game 2. Take a shot on Herro, who hit just 2-of-10 field goals in Game 1 including 2-of-5 from long range while scoring just 10 points in 19 minutes. With a little positive regression, Herro would have a real shot to eclipse this total.
