The Milwaukee Bucks and Atlanta Hawks square off in Game 6 with Giannis Antetokounmpo out for the road team due to a knee injury. The Bucks will look to close out the series and advance to the NBA Finals while the Hawks try to send the series back to Milwaukee for Game 7.
Here are the most popular player props among bettors for Game 6.
Khris Middleton over 2.5 3-pointers (-113)
Middleton is expected to be the Bucks’ top scorer and offensive initiator with Antetokounmpo out. He took six three-pointers in Game 5, making two of them. The public is backing him to can one more triple in Game 6.
Khris Middleton over 6.5 assists (-127)
The guard had eight assists in Milwaukee’s Game 5 victory, largely due to Brook Lopez and Bobby Portis breaking out. Middleton is averaging 6.4 assists per game in the series, but he’s going to be expected to do more with Antetokounmpo out. This prop has a good chance of paying off.
Kevin Huerter over 12.5 points (-121)
Trae Young’s status for Game 6 is still in question, but there’s a good chance the guard plays after missing Games 4 and 5. Huerter is averaging 11.0 points per game, but he hasn’t shot the ball particularly well. A return to normal percentages would push him above this line.
Bogdan Bogdanovic over 17.5 points (-113)
Bogdanovic is emerging as arguably Atlanta’s second best player, putting up 13.6 points and 3.6 assists per game in the series. He’s scored 20 and 28 points in the last two games with Young out. Even if the the star guard returns, Bogdanovic will be expected to produce again in Game 6.
Brook Lopez over 15.5 points (-117)
Lopez exploded for 33 points in Game 5, but he was averaging 10.0 points per game entering the contest. With Antetokounmpo out, expect Lopez to continue to get touches. It’s going to be tough for him to replicate his Game 5 performance as the Hawks will try to contain him, especially in the paint.
