The Milwaukee Bucks will attempt to close out the 2021 NBA Finals with a fourth straight win over the Phoenix Suns, while the road team hopes to force a Game 7. Here are the most popular player props for Game 6 courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
Khris Middleton to score the most points (-180)
Middleton has been an explosive scorer for the Bucks, averaging 25.4 points per game in the series. He’s put up 40 and 29 in the last two contests and typically plays better at home than on the road. Game 6 is a chance for Middleton to cement his star status with a big offensive performance.
Devin Booker over 30.5 points (-134)
Booker had back-to-back 40+ point games in Games 4 and 5, but the Suns were on the losing end of both contests. There’s a thought the star guard might defer more to get teammates involved before getting more aggressive in late-game situations. The betting public does not see it that way and expects the scoring barrage to continue.
Jrue Holiday to score the most points (-167)
Holiday broke out in Game 5 after a dismal shooting performance in Game 4, going 12-20 for 27 points while also dishing 13 assists. His defense and passing are always going to be factors, but Holiday’s scoring is what makes him a star. It’s hard to see him topping Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo, but enough bettors are backing him on this prop.
Jrue Holiday under 19.5 points (-107)
It might be confusing for people to see this prop immediately after one having Holiday as the game’s top scorer, but that means a lot of bettors also don’t trust his offensive output. The guard has rarely been good consistently and Game 6 might get ugly given how Game 5 went. Holiday is averaging 17.6 points per game in the series, so this will be close.
P.J. Tucker over 4.5 points (-103)
Tucker is usually a non-factor on offense, tallying zero points in Milwaukee’s Game 4 win before adding three in a Game 5 victory. It’s hard to bank on the small forward having enough offensive opportunities to put up five or more points. This is an interesting prop for bettors to take given how Milwaukee’s “Big 3” is playing right now. Le’t see if Tucker can pay off on this prop for the public.
