NBA Finals same game parlay (+1127 odds): Milwaukee Bucks vs. Phoenix Suns Game 2

NBA Finals same game parlay (+1127 odds): Milwaukee Bucks vs. Phoenix Suns Game 2

The Phoenix Suns held serve in Game 1 and are now up 1-0 in the NBA Finals for the first time since 1993. They have a chance to take full control of the series on Thursday as they host the Milwaukee Bucks for Game 2.

Tipoff is scheduled for 9pm ET on ABC, and our same game parlay is available below!

Chris Paul Over 22.5 Points (+100)

Giannis Antetokounmpo Over 11.5 Rebounds (-138)

Khris Middleton Over 25.5 Points (-122)

Jrue Holiday Over 9.5 Assists (+112)

Parlay odds: +1127

Chris Paul Over 22.5 Points (+100)

Paul has been playing a lot of minutes as of late, in fact he’s gone 35+ minutes in seven straight games which is a lot for a 36-year-old player. However, he has delivered on the offensive end scoring 41 and 32 points in his last two games against the Clippers and Bucks. Paul has been especially proficient from the three-point line connecting on 11 of 15 attempts in those two games. His mid-range game has also been fantastic, he’s scored on 14 of his 19 attempts in the win over Denver. It’s his moment to shine and Paul has not disappointed. Let’s back him again to score at least 23 points in Game 2.

Giannis Antetokounmpo Over 11.5 Rebounds (-138)

Despite the hyperextended knee there were plenty of positive signs from Antetokounmpo in the Game 1 loss. He took only 11 shots on the night and finished with 20 points, struggling from the free-throw line. However, he was very active on the defensive end grabbing 15 rebounds to go along with two on the offensive side of the ball. The Greek Freak also had a highlight play with a chase-down block, but is clearly still bothered by his knee injury and is taking it easier on the offensive end. His average for the postseason is 12.9 rebounds per game, so the total of 11.5 for Game 2 seems very doable.

Khris Middleton Over 25.5 Points (-122)

With Antetokounmpo being a bit limited on offense due to his injury, Middleton needs to step up and be the primary scoring option for the Bucks. That has worked in the previous three games as he scored 26, 32, and 29 points in two wins against the Hawks and the Game 1 loss at Phoenix. His efficiency was solid on Tuesday, he took 26 shots in that game and drained five threes in the process. I expect him to take a similar amount of shots, maybe even more if the Bucks push the tempo in Game 2 a bit more. He has gone over his point total in four of his last five games.

Jrue Holiday Over 9.5 Assists (+112)

The Suns did a great job on him in Game 1 holding Holiday to just 4-for-14 shots and only 10 points scored. He did manage to get his assists though finishing the game with nine of them. Over his last five games he is averaging 10.4 assists and is the primary ball handler for the Bucks in this series. Holiday also logged 40 or more minutes in three straight games and in seven of his last 10 in the postseason. We expect a lot more from the Bucks’ offense in Game 2; Holiday will be the key for them if they want to go over their Game 1 total.
