Best NBA Playoffs player prop bets for Bucks vs. Hawks Game 4: Holiday bounces back

Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo did most of the heavy lifting for Milwaukee in the Game 3 win and now the pressure is on Atlanta to even the series before going back on the road.

Game 4 tip-off is scheduled for 8.30pm ET and you can watch it live on TNT. We’ve picked out two of our best player prop bets for Tuesday’s clash, so let’s get into it.

Jrue Holiday Over 18.5 Points (-122)

After scoring 33 and 22 points in the first two games of the series, Holiday was a lot more focused on containing Trae Young in Game 3 which resulted in just 11 shots taken from the field and six points. The task of guarding him got a lot easier after Atlanta’s star injured his ankle while awkwardly stepping on the referee’s foot — an MRI revealed a bone bruise and he will not be at 100 percent in Game 4.

Holiday can once again focus on scoring the ball, he had five three-pointers made in the series opener which he followed up with three of them in Game 2. The Hawks don’t really have anyone to counter Holiday with — Bogdanovic is already limping as it is — so it should be a productive night for the UCLA product.

Khris Middleton Over 5.5 Assists (-105)

Middleton is coming off a red-hot performance in Game 3 in which he scored 38 points and led the Bucks to the win. His seven assists in that game went under the radar a bit after his fourth-quarter heroics. In the series, he’s averaging 6.3 assists per game and it’s also worth noting that he has had over 5.5 assists in four of his last seven games. In the Game 3 win, Milwaukee had 27 assists compared to just 20 by Atlanta. The Bucks play their best when they share the ball and everyone gets involved. I think they’ll use that same recipe in Game 4 which will lead them to a win and a commanding 3-1 lead.
