NBA Finals Game 5 same game parlay (+1190 odds): Milwaukee Bucks vs. Phoenix Suns

NBA Finals Game 5 same game parlay (+1190 odds): Milwaukee Bucks vs. Phoenix Suns

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a series on our hands. The Bucks and Suns are now tied at 2-2 heading into Game 5 on Saturday, with both teams desperate to move one win away from the NBA Championship. Will Milwaukee make it three wins in a row, or can Phoenix get back on track and regain the lead at home?

Tip-off is scheduled for 9.00pm ET with the game airing live on ABC, and we have picked out four of our best bets and put them together in a same game parlay. Find it below!

Deandre Ayton over 12.5 rebounds (-112)

Chris Paul over 8.5 assists (-120)

Jae Crowder over 11.5 points (-104)

Giannis Antetokounmpo over 33.5 points (-108)

Parlay Odds: +1190

This same game parlay pays at nearly 12/1 with FanDuel Sportsbook. As you can see, we like the Suns’ players to get it done in their respective props, while Giannis Antetokounmpo can once again explode and have a big game for the Bucks. Let’s break it all down.

Deandre Ayton Over 12.5 Rebounds (-112)

Ayton has been reliable when it comes to rebounding this entire postseason run — he’s currently averaging 12.2 per game. I think the up-tempo style of play we’ll see in Game 5 from both teams will benefit him similarly to the series opener in which he had 19 rebounds. He’s coming off just six points scored in Game 4, but he was very active on the boards, finishing with 17, and making a big impact on the game for Phoenix. If the Suns do indeed play smaller, Ayton can still play 30+ minutes and his primary objective will be guarding Giannis and cleaning the glass.

Chris Paul Over 8.5 Assists (-120)

Game 4 was a big disappointment for CP3, he finished with five turnovers and had one of them in the closing minutes of the game with the Suns being down 2 points. His handle didn’t look right all night long and now it’s time for him to have a bounce back game. Twice already in this series he has gone Over 8.5 assists, playing in front of the home fans and being the motor of this team I think he could get double-digit dimes this time around. Booker has finally woken up offensively, so expect him to put up a ton of shots and Paul to feed him the entire game.

Jae Crowder Over 11.5 Points (-104)

He really stepped up his production in the two games on the road scoring 18 and 15 points. Game 3 was especially impressive as he went 6-for-7 from three-point line. Wednesday’s game was a bit different, he drained three shots from distance and went 6-for-7 from the charity stripe. Over the course of the current postseason run he has gone over 2.5 made threes 11 times, so he will definitely get his 6.5 attempts on Saturday night. With the Bucks focusing mainly on shutting down Booker and Paul, I think Crowder has a solid chance for another solid output in Game 5.

Giannis Antetokounmpo Over 33.5 Points (-108)

Giannis didn’t have to do as much offensively in Game 4 as we’re accustomed to seeing from him — Khris Middleton carried the load and scored 40 on Wednesday. With the series now going back to Phoenix, the Bucks cannot rely on Middleton as he simply hasn’t been consistently reliable this postseason. The Greek Freak on the other hand has already had two 40+ point performances in these Finals, one of them at Phoenix. The Suns are trying to build a wall and stop him, but that has not worked well so far. Giannis is making over 70 percent of his two-point shots and I think we’ll see yet another big scoring game from him in Game 5.
