The NBA Finals are always full of surprises and this year doesn’t disappoint.
The Phoenix Suns are in their first Finals since 1993 and playing for their first championship. And the Bucks are looking to win the Finals for the first time since 1971.
Both teams have players who have been putting on magnificent performances and putting up record-setting stats. Which makes prop bets for Game 4 for the NBA Finals all that more interesting.
Game 4 Odds
After the Milwaukee Bucks won Game 3 on Sunday night, the series is now 2-1. The Suns are still the favorites to win the Finals, but sportsbook apps like DraftKings have the Bucks as a four-point favorite to win Game 4.
Spread: Bucks -4
Over/Under: Over 220.5
Moneyline: Bucks –186 Suns +155
Deandre Ayton – Points & Rebounds: Over 29.5
As for Game 4 of the NBA Finals, FanDuel has Deandre Ayton to score and rebound over 29.5. If Ayton can stay out of foul trouble and avoid the bench, he should be able to play his full average 40 minutes and will likely have over 29.5 combined points and rebounds. That is why the odds are in his favor at -102.
In Game 3, Ayton had 18 points and nine rebounds in just 24 minutes. And since he has been 20 for 31 from the floor this series, Ayton should hit the over easily.
Jae Crowder – Points: Over 10.5
Jae Crowder is the only player on both rosters that has experience in the NBA Finals. He played in the Finals last year for the Miami Heat when they lost to the Los Angeles Lakers.
Crowder has hit over 10.5 points in 37 out of 79 games this season and is shooting 45 percent from the field in the last five games.
Giannis Antetokounmpo – Points: Under 34.5
Even though Giannis is coming off of back-to-back 40 point games, he will still likely hit the under for this prop bet. He has under 35 points in 15 of his 18 playoff games, so unless he comes out hitting all of his free throws, this number is just too high. FanDuel has him at -110 to hit the under.
The Bucks know that they need to win Game 4 since they will be traveling back to Phoenix for Game 5 on Saturday. So we think Giannis will be focusing more on a team win than his personal stats.
