Jrue Holiday over 11.5 rebounds + assists (-142)
Line available at FanDuel Sportsbook at time of publishing.
We’re 3-0 on this exact prop and line in the last two weeks and Holiday has another great matchup against the Chicago Bulls on the road. Away from Milwaukee, Holiday tends to score less but passes the ball more and grabs more rebounds. He averages 7.6 assists and 5.5 rebounds on the road and is over this line in 16 of 22 games. Holiday comes close to being blowout-proof which bodes well for anyone taking his over. He’s averaging 35 minutes in his last 10 games due to multiple injuries lingering to Bucks’ players like Bobby Portis, Pat Connaughton and even Khris Middleton, who is still only playing 22 minutes in 5 games this month. In games that he’s played at least 32 minutes, Holiday is over this line in 24 of 34 games and 13 of 18 on the road.
The Bulls are fresh off allowing the backcourt of Tyrese Haliburton and T.J. McConnell of the Indiana Pacers to dish out 15 assists on 28 opportunities last night. The game before that, former number 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz had a near triple-double with 10 rebounds and 9 assists.
Head coach Mike Budenholzer has a unique rotation for Holiday which presents him on multiple occasions on the court without Giannis Antetokounmpo and a chance to fully lead the offense. Look for the All-Star to continue to stuff the stat sheet and move us to 4-0 on backing him.
