Game Lines: Who Will Win?

Thus far, the home team has won every game of the series and as the series heads back to Phoenix, it’s a trend online gambling sites expect to continue in Game 5.

Bucks vs Suns Moneyline Odds

  • Milwaukee Bucks +150
  • Phoenix Suns -170

The Suns have been winning through their efficiency on the offensive end of the floor. Throughout the playoffs, Phoenix’s true shooting percentage is 58.5% which has even improved in the finals, going up to 59.3%. Plus, the Suns are 35-11 at home this year while the Bucks have struggled on the road with just a 25-22 away record.

Phoenix typically responds well after a loss, holding a 19-7 record this year, although they have lost two in a row.

Player Prop Betting

Some of the best value on online sportsbooks can be found in player props, especially if someone is indecisive on which team will win the game. There are a couple of interesting prop bets worth noting for Game 5.

Giannis Antetokounmpo Pts + Reb + Ast

Giannis Antetokounmpo has been having an incredible series. He’s had multiple 40-point double-doubles and is averaging 32.3 points, 14.0 rebounds and 5.5 assists in the Finals.

However, his points + rebounds + assists (PRA) total is potentially set too high.

Giannis Antetokounmpo PRA Total

  • Over 53.5 -108
  • Under 53.5 -120

Antetokounmpo has hit this mark in just three of his 19 postseason games. The number is likely inflated due to the back-to-back 40-point double-doubles, but it’s proven that those were more outliers than an everyday occurrence.

Bobby Portis Three-Pointers Made

Bobby Portis has been a wildcard throughout the postseason. He’s logged 36 minutes in some games and 5 minutes in others.

However, he has consistently been able to knock down a three-pointer when on the floor. He’s done so in eight of his last 10 games.

Bobby Portis Three-Pointers Made Odds

  • Over 0.5 -115
  • Under 0.5 -115

Not only has he been making threes during this playoff run, but he’s averaged at least one three-pointer made per game for each of the past six seasons.

This year he shot 47.1% from behind the arc, by far the highest of his career and as long as he gets the minutes on the court, he should be able to knock down at least one deep ball.
