The Brooklyn Nets and the Milwaukee Bucks meet for the first time this season. Milwaukee has dominated this matchup since Durant has gotten to Brooklyn. The Bucks are 5-1 against the Nets, making tonight feel like a big game for Brooklyn.
All the stars will be out tonight, as we get the Greek Freak vs. Kevin Durant. I have a prop on Durant for the night, but let’s check out my other two favorite props for this game.
Best Prop Bets For Bucks-Nets
- Kevin Durant OVER 29.5 Points (-106)
- Jrue Holiday OVER 7.5 Assists (-104)
- Grayson Allen OVER 2.5 Threes (+132)
Kevin Durant OVER 29.5 Points (-106)
Durant is averaging 32 points per game this season and has already cleared this line twice. Since he’s gotten to Brooklyn, he’s averaged 31.8 points on 49% from the field. With the lack of defense the Nets play, Durant scoring at volume is the only way they can win tonight. The Bucks’ best option is to put Jrue Holiday on Durant, but even then Durant has an eight inch height advantage. Scoring 30 tonight is light work for him.
Jrue Holiday OVER 7.5 Assists (-104)
Trusting Holiday as a scorer is hard to do, but I love his assist prop tonight. At 7.5, which is under his average of 9 per game, we’re getting serious value.
There’s going to be a lot of possessions in this game and the Bucks are extremely reliant on Holiday’s ability to distribute the ball and make plays for his teammates. At plus money and a lower line, I like this.
Grayson Allen OVER 2.5 Threes
Allen has hit this mark in both games this season, and is set up to do it again. He’s taking a good amount of threes per game to where I can trust in the volume despite him only shooting 31% from downtown. Also – and I don’t mean to sound like a broken record but – the Nets can’t play defense. They were giving up wide open threes left and right to the Grizzlies. If Giannis Antetokounmpo is aggressive and forces the defense to collapse, there will be plenty open looks for Allen.
