We hit the Over on the Middleton rebounds prop in Game 4, but just barely. The line for that contest was set at 7.5 rebounds and he finished with eight. The line has been bumped up to 8.5 for Game 5, which I don’t like as much. Therefore, I’ll take the worse odds and go with this wager instead. He has recorded at least eight rebounds in four of his last six games and there should be more available rebounds in this contest with Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) likely out.
John Collins, Atlanta Hawks at Milwaukee Bucks
Under 1.5 Made Three-Pointers (-190)
Wager: 1 unit (win would pay 1.53 units)
Collins hasn’t done much from behind the arc lately, making one or no three-pointers in nine of his last 10 games. He only averaged 2.8 three-point attempts per game during that stretch, which comes on the heels of him averaging 3.3 attempts per game during the regular season. With his lack of attempts, I’ll take a chance on the Under.
