Bucks vs Suns Game 3 Prop Bets: 2021 NBA Finals Game 3 Prop Betting Picks

The 2021 NBA Finals shifts to Milwaukee on Sunday with the Bucks looking to dig themselves out of an 0-2 series hole. If the Phoenix Suns can pull out the victory, they’ll have Chris Paul on the verge of his first NBA title. This exciting matchup also leaves us with plenty of wagering opportunities, so here are some props that could prove to be profitable.

Bucks vs. Suns Game 3 Player Prop Bets

Giannis Antetokounmpo Over 32.5 Points: -108 at BetRivers

After attempting 11 field goals and 12 free throws in Game 1, Giannis was much more aggressive in Game 2. Not only did he double his field-goal attempts with 22, but he also went to the line 18 times, pouring in 42 points in 40 minutes and showing no ill effects from his previous knee injury. The Bucks will need him to play a ton and continue to be aggressive as they look to hold serve at home, so expect another big scoring performance from the two-time MVP.

Khris Middleton Over 4.5 Assists: -148 at BetRivers

The main reason that the Bucks lost Game 2 with Giannis going off was that Middleton and Jrue Holiday went cold from the field. Middleton finished with 11 points, shooting just 5-for-16 from the floor. On the bright side, he did register eight assists, marking the 10th time in his last 12 games that he notched at least five assists. With the focus on getting Giannis the ball, Middleton has a favorable chance of dishing out at least five dimes in this contest as well.

P.J. Tucker Over 11.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists: -105 at BetMGM

Tucker logged 35 minutes in Game 2, finishing with 13 total points, rebounds, and assists. He’s now logged at least 32 minutes in four straight games and has tallied at least 12 combined points, rebounds, and assists in all four of those contests. With plenty of minutes likely coming his way again in Game 3, this is an appealing wager at these odds.

Jae Crowder Over 5.5 Rebounds: -150 at BetMGM

The Suns’ frontcourt is starting to get thin. Dario Saric suffered a torn ACL in Game 1 and Torrey Craig went down with a knee injury in Game 2. While Craig will have a couple of days to rest, Phoenix might have to rely even more heavily on Crowder if he can’t play. Crowder has recorded at least nine rebounds in both games of this series, so the potential for added playing time only makes this wager even more enticing.

NBA Finals Game 3 Prop Bets

Bucks First Quarter MoneyLine: -159 at BetRivers

Milwaukee won the first quarter of Game 2 but still ended up losing by 10 points. This is a must-win game for them, so expect Giannis and company to come out firing at home. There could also be a bit of an adjustment period for Phoenix in front of what should be a raucous Bucks crowd.

Bucks Winning Margin 1-5 Points: +400 on BetMGM

Even though Milwaukee lost both of the first two games by double-digits, they’ve certainly put up a fight. Giannis has powered through his knee injury and the Bucks have had success when they play small and deploy him at center. This game being played at home should help Milwaukee pull out the win, but expect Phoenix to at least keep things relatively close based on how well they’ve been playing this series.


Bucks vs Suns Prop Bet Picks To Keep An Eye On

If you want to take a chance on some long-shot wagers, here are a couple to consider.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo To Score First Field Goal of Game: +375 at BetRivers
  • Suns Winning Margin By 6-10 points: +500 at BetMGM
