We have a standalone game on Sunday night in the NBA, and there are plenty of prop bets to consider for the Milwaukee Bucks’ matchup with the New Orleans Pelicans.
I have picks for players on both teams, including an under-the-radar rebound prop for Pelicans wing Herb Jones.
Here’s the breakdown for each play as well as the latest odds:
Pelicans vs. Bucks best NBA prop bets
- Giannis Antetokounmpo OVER 31.5 Points
- Herb Jones OVER 3.5 Rebounds
- Grayson Allen OVER 1.5 3-Pointers Made
Giannis Antetokounmpo OVER 31.5 Points
Since returning from a knee injury, Giannis Antetokounmpo has really been scoring the ball at a high clip.
Giannis put up 29 points in 27 minutes his first game back, 33 in 31 minutes and then 41 in 34 minutes across the three games since he came back.
The Pelicans have been struggling, losing seven straight games, and they don’t have a great matchup for Giannis (not that anyone does). With Bobby Portis out, Giannis is going to be relied on even more to score down low for the Bucks.
I think he goes over this prop for the third time in four games.
Herb Jones OVER 3.5 Rebounds
Herb Jones is another player that is coming back from injury, and he’s looked good in his first five matchups back with his minutes increasing with each game.
Jones only missed this rebound total in one matchup, his first game back where he played just 19 minutes.
Both of these teams are top-five in the NBA in rebounding percentage, and I expect Jones to have a big role again tonight with Brandon Ingram’s status up in the air since this is the second night of a back-to-back for New Orleans.
Grayson Allen OVER 1.5 3-Pointers Made
Grayson Allen has shot the ball well all season for the Bucks, posting a 3-point percentage of 40.2 percent.
He’s hit multiple 3-pointers in eight of his last 11 games, yet the books keep hanging his line at 1.5 3-pointers made.
The Bucks rely on Allen a lot from beyond the arc, as he’s averaging nearly five 3-point attempts per game this season. I’ll go OVER on this prop for him while he’s hot.
