The Milwaukee Bucks return home on Tuesday with a chance to close out the Phoenix Suns and win the 2021 NBA Finals. Let’s dive into the prop bets that are available for what might be the final game of the season and highlight some that could prove to be profitable.
Bucks vs Suns Game 6 Prop Bets: 2021 NBA Finals Game 6 Prop Betting Picks
Bucks vs. Suns Game 6 Player Prop Bets
Giannis Antetokounmpo To Score Bucks’ First Field Goal (+225)
Since this could be our final game to wager on, let’s take a chance on some wagers with juicy plus odds. Giannis has been stellar throughout this series and has scored at least 32 points in three of the last four games. Milwaukee’s home crowd should be roaring at the start of this game and Giannis is the most dominant scoring option on the Bucks, so I’ll take a chance on him to score the team’s first field goal of the contest.
Devin Booker To Score Suns’ First Field Goal (+240)
It’s a bit surprising that Booker isn’t the favorite to score the first field goal for Phoenix, which is Deandre Ayton at +190. Booker is coming off of back-to-back games with at least 40 points and has averaged 24.2 field-goal attempts per game in this series. With the Suns in a must-win scenario, look for Booker to come out firing early as he tries to keep their title hopes alive.
Jae Crowder Over 17.5 Points + Rebounds (-115)
Crowder has logged heavy minutes in this series with Dario Šarić (knee) out, averaging 36.5 minutes per game and exceeding 39 minutes in Games 4 and 5. The extra playing time has helped his counting stats, as he’s registered at least five rebounds in every game of this series and has scored 10+ points in four straight. He’s hit this over in three of his last four games, so there’s a good chance he does so again in Game 6.
Khris Middleton Over 4.5 Assists (-160)
Middleton has barely come off the floor in this series, averaging just under 43 minutes per game. That’s helped him record at least four assists in every game and at least five in three of the last four contests. Middleton has been running an excellent two-man game with Giannis, creating major problems for Phoenix on the pick-and-roll. Given how often Middleton has the ball in his hands and his hefty dosage of playing time, taking the over here could be the way to go.
NBA Finals Game 6 Prop Bets
Bucks Under 30.5 First Quarter Points (-225)
The Bucks haven’t exactly come out of the gate firing in this series, scoring 29 points or less in every first quarter this series and averaging just 24.2 points per game in the first quarter. They’ve started the last couple of games particularly slowly, scoring just 41 first-quarter points in the last two games combined.
While the home crowd should provide Milwaukee with plenty of energy, Phoenix will likely be playing with heightened intensity on the defensive end right from the start. That could lead to another low-scoring first quarter for the Bucks, who have scored 26 points or less in the first quarter four times in this series.
Second Half (incl. OT) Most Points Scored (-150)
More points have been scored in the second half in four of the five games in this series. The only reason it didn’t happen again in Game 5 was that both teams had their highest-scoring quarter of the game in the first half. Given Milwaukee’s penchant for slow starts (see above), look for the trend of higher-scoring second halves to resume in Game 6.
