Breaking down player prop bets for Hawks-Bucks Game 3

Here are the five player props bettors like for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

2021 NBA Playoffs - Atlanta Hawks v Milwaukee Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks and Atlanta Hawks square off in Game 3 to determine who will grab the lead in the Eastern conference finals. Trae Young pulled off the upset in Game 1, but Milwaukee’s “Big 3” of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday all delivered in a Game 2 blowout.

Here are the some player prop bets to look at for Sunday’s game. We’ll add in the most popular props on DraftKings Sportsbook for Game 3 later on.

Jrue Holiday over 20.5 points (-104)

Holiday is on fire right now, averaging 27.5 points per game in the series. He’s been a great distributor as well, but the Hawks are having trouble containing his scoring. The veteran point guard is showing why the Bucks gave up a big haul to add him in the offseason. Holiday should keep producing in Game 3.

Trae Young over 2.5 3-pointers (-152)

Young struggled in Game 2, but has hit three or more triples in eight out of 14 playoff games. He’s missed the target in the last contest, but Young is likely to deliver on this prop in Game 3.

John Collins over 9.5 rebounds (+100)

Collins also had a rough outing in Game 2, but he still tallied eight rebounds. He’s averaging 12.0 rebounds per game in the last six contests and has hit double-digit boards in six of the last eight contests. Clint Capela can impact this bet significantly but Collins has been pulling down enough rebounds to make this a worthwhile prop for bettors.
