A back-and-forth Eastern Conference semifinal matchup between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Brooklyn Nets reaches what should be a riveting conclusion on Saturday night (8:30 p.m. ET, TNT) in Game 7!
We’ve scanned the multitude of available player props for this clash and come up with the three smartest sides to wager on. Without further ado, here are our favorite player props for Game 7 between the Bucks and Nets.
Sun, June 20 2021, 12:40 AM
Khris Middleton Over/Under 25.5 pts
Khris Middleton was a major contributor to the Bucks’ winning effort in Game 6, notching 38 points. It was the second time he eclipsed 30 points in this series, but both efforts occurred at Fiserv Forum. Prop bettors should be bearish on “Khash” as he returns to Barclays Center on Saturday night.
Middleton has averaged just 18.3 points per contest in Games 1, 2, and 5. He shot just 39.7% from the floor in those tilts, including a 6-for-21 mark (28.6 %) from beyond the arc. This has been a low-scoring series for the most part, and bettors should expect that trend to continue.
Kevin Durant Over 2.5 3-pointers
Kevin Durant has had to play some heroic basketball in this series following the injuries to Kyrie Irving and James Harden. With Irving out for Game 7 and Harden clearly at less than 100%, Durant’s point total has been set at a very ambitious 35.5. While that might just be a bridge too far, Durant fans should not be dissuaded from betting the Over on his fairly modest 3-point field goal line.
Durant should nail at least three shots from long distance in this one. He’s done that three times in this series, including his valiant 49-point effort in Game 5.
Giannis Antetokounmpo Over/Under 14.5 rebounds
In a win-or-go-home Game 7, Giannis should be crashing the boards and playing just about every minute. That should help Over bettors cash on this lofty rebound total for “The Greek Freak.”
Giannis pulled down 17 boards in Game 6, bringing his playoff rebound average per game to 13.7. But bettors should remember that the former MVP has averaged fewer than 38 minutes per game due to numerous blowout situations.
