The Atlanta Hawks look to take a 2-0 series lead over the Milwaukee Bucks when the sides meet in Game 2. The Hawks hope to pull off another road win on the back of Trae Young while the Bucks will attempt to level the series 1-1 before heading to Atlanta.
Here are some of our favorite player prop bets via DraftKings Sportsbook for Game 2 Friday night. We’ll add in the top 5 most bet on props via the public on DKSB when that info is provided.
Giannis Antetokounmpo to record a double-double (-800)
Antetokounmpo is averaging a double-double this season with 29.3 points and 13.5 rebounds per game. He’s also reached the double-double mark in every playoff game so far, making him a good candidate to pay off this prop bet. The value isn’t great, but this one is a near certainty.
Khris Middleton over 23.5 points (-118)
Middleton had a rough game in the series opener, going 6-23 from the floor and 0-9 from deep. Bettors are expecting Middleton to bounce back and the Bucks need him to step up to level the series. He’s averaging 22.6 points per game in the playoffs, but will likely shoot better from the floor. This prop should pay off.
Trae Young over 30.5 points (-113)
Young is on fire this postseason, but 30.5 is a big line given his ability to distribute the ball well. After going for 48 in Game 1, the Bucks will be determined to prevent Young from lighting them up again. This prop will be close.
Jrue Holiday over 19.5 points (-125)
Bettors are liking Holiday’s current form, but the guard has been extremely volatile in the playoffs. He’s only topped 30 points once (Game 1 vs. Atlanta) and has only topped 19 points twice. This is a risky prop bet.
Clint Capela under 13.5 points (-105)
Capela is averaging 10.5 points per game in the playoffs and gets the majority of his buckets on easy dunks and putbacks. He’s not going to be a dominant offensive option and won’t even many touches outside of his hustle plays. This prop bet has a good chance to hit.
