Giannis Antetokounmpo Under 27.5 Points (-114, FanDuel)

When sorting the prop bets by expected win percentage, this is the prop that comes to the very top. OddsShopper gives this prop an 69% chance to go under and a 29% ROI, projecting Giannis Antetokounmpo for 24.2 points. There are a few reasons why the under looks good on this prop. First, Khris Middleton could be making his return to the Bucks lineup, meaning Antetokounmpo will not need to do everything for Milwaukee. Also, the Bucks are currently favored by 9.5 points. If this turns into a one-sided affair, expect Antetokounmpo to take a seat for the night a bit early, limiting his opportunities to score.

The Latest Sports Betting Content from Awesemo Odds

Bobby Portis Over 7.5 Rebounds (-110, Caesars)

With Brook Lopez still out tonight, Bobby Portis is one of the few players on the Bucks roster that has the size they need in this game. His minutes are also a bit safer than that of Antetokounmpo’s, as they are more likely to let Portis play a bit longer with the game out of hand. Regardless, he will see plenty of minutes yet again tonight, as he has totaled eight or more rebounds in five of his past seven games. Portis also grabbed eight rebounds in his only matchup with the Lakers last season. OddsShopper gives this prop a 68% chance to go over and a 30% ROI, projecting him for nine rebounds.

Jrue Holiday Under 16.5 Points (-110, Caesars)

Again, with Middleton listed as probably to make his return tonight, this will take scoring opportunities away from Jrue Holiday. This season Holiday has averaged 2.39 fewer points per 36 minutes when sharing the floor with Middleton. Add in the possibility of a blowout tonight, and there is plenty of reason to bet the under of this points prop. OddsShopper gives this prop a 62% chance to go under and an 18% ROI, projecting him for 15 points.
