Bucks vs. Hawks: The best player prop bets for Game 3

Will Trae Young and the Hawks pull ahead two games to one on Sunday night, or will Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks keep their momentum going? Let’s start finding out as we highlight our favorite three player prop bets for the evening.

John Collins Over/Under 25.5 pts, asts & rebs
John Collins has been a reliable source of production for the Hawks throughout the NBA playoffs. His poor showing in Game 2 was part of the reason why Atlanta was blown out, but bettors should not expect lightning to strike twice here.
Collins tallied 23 points and 15 rebounds in Game 1, easily surpassing this 25.5 plateau even with just one assist to his credit. It was the fifth time in six games that Collins had at least 26 points and rebounds combined. Look for him to bounce back in a big way on Sunday night.
Jrue Holiday Over/Under 20.5 pts
Jrue Holiday cleared the 20.5-point plateau in each of the first two games of this series, including a fantastic 33-point effort in defeat in Game 1. While conventional wisdom suggests he may struggle as he takes his show on the road, bettors would not be wise to bet against the Bucks’ point guard in this market.
Holiday averaged 19.1 points per game on the road during the regular season, compared to only 16.2 points per game at home. Combining this fact with his hot hand at the moment makes the Over too tempting to pass up on.
Kevin Huerter Over/Under 2.5 3-pointers made
Though the Under is juiced significantly, bettors have a right to be bearish about Kevin Huerter’s ability to sink at least three 3-pointers for the Hawks on Sunday night.
Huerter has gone seven straight games with two or fewer buckets from beyond the arc, shooting a modest 35% from long range in that span. He also doesn’t shoot in a high enough volume to justify taking the Over, even as he returns home.
