NBA Fantasy: Top PrizePicks Predictions for Bucks vs. Suns Finals Game 5 Tonight




Zach Brunner finds the best NBA fantasy PrizePicks prop predictions & expert picks for the Bucks vs. Suns Finals Game 5, July 17, 2021.

After tying the series in Game 4, the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns head back to Arizona for Game 5 tonight. With the series tied, it becomes a best-of-three series, with the Suns still holding homecourt advantage. This has proven to be huge, with the home team winning all four games. Switching venues has drastically impacted player performances, making DFS NBA picks and lineups a bit tricky. So if looking for a different way to play NBA fantasy contests today, PrizePicks could be a site that interests you.

PrizePicks NBA Fantasy: Bucks vs. Suns NBA Finals

It is important to note that, much like odds that update throughout the day, the player totals at PrizePicks are subject to change. So if you like these NBA picks below, it is wise to jump on them quickly.

Devin Booker: Over 28.5 Points

Devin Booker is coming off a terrific offensive game. While he didn’t hit a single shot from beyond the arc, he finished with a game-high 42 points. He has also played better on his home floor, putting up 30-plus points in three of his last five home games. After failing to show up in the fourth quarter of Game 4, Booker will likely come out of the gates strong yet again, and he should use the energy from the Phoenix crowd to maintain this aggressiveness throughout the entire game.

Jae Crowder: Over 2.5 Made 3s

We have seen Jae Crowder play his role beautifully during the NBA Finals. He is asked to grab rebounds, play defense and hit the open three-point shots. With the defense’s focus being places on Booker, Chris Paul and Deandre Ayton, Crowder will naturally see open jump shots. He has been knocking them down, hitting at least three shots from beyond the arc in each of the last three games and four of his last five games. It should only continue tonight, especially if Paul protects the ball and runs the offense a bit more efficiently.

Pat Connaughton: Over 1.5 Made 3s

While Pat Connaughton made not be the first name you think about to have confidence in tonight, this NBA fantasy prop is set very low. Offensively, all Connaughton does is shoot 3s. He has made two or more in each of the last five games. Connaughton has attempted four or more in each of these games, and seven-plus in half of the NBA Finals games. When he shoots this often, he doesn’t even need to be efficient for this prop to hit the over.
