NBA Finals Game 5 Betting Tips and Player Props

I live in Milwaukee so I’m trying very hard not to be biased when it comes to this series. Honestly, the Bucks make that very easy to do with some of their offensive possessions.

Just some of the most frustrating basketball without ball movement. There were points in game four when I was just ready to be put out of my misery, but they just kept defending and kept coming back. It was really impressive to see. Giannis, Middleton, and Booker from the Suns have all silenced any critics in this series. Anyone who still questions them should not be listened to. These are big time players on the biggest stage imaginable.

Tonight should be a lot of fun. Let’s make some bets.

Milwaukee Bucks at Phoenix Suns Betting Tips:

Game four really saw the referees swallowing their whistle and let them play. The game was very physical and that showed up in the box score with the lowest scoring game of the series. That should be the new normal going forward. The stars are playing heavy minutes and the stakes could not be higher.

I’m not going to make a pick on the winner. I think that the Suns could win this one to force the Bucks’ hand, but -4 seems like -20 here. I just think this one is going to be tight until the end and especially low scoring.

The under is the play. Just hope they don’t go to overtime.

Pick: Bet Under 219

Milwaukee Bucks at Phoenix Suns Player Props:

A secret of this series is that the Suns success is directly tied to how well Bridges has played. In the first two games he combined for 41 points. In the last two losses he combined for 11 points. That’s a huge difference.

The game plan has to involve getting him more open looks. Plus, the shots just have a way of falling when you are at home. I’m expecting a bounce back game from Bridges here.

Pick: Mikal Bridges Over 10.5 Points (-118)

Jrue Holiday has been a big part of the Bucks turnaround on the defensive end. He’s absolutely hounded Chris Paul and has been racking up the steals. He had no steals in game one, but has since had 2, 1, and 3. The series always gets more intense and defensive as it goes longer and he should hit this number here tonight.

Pick: Jrue Holiday At Least 2 Steals (-111)

I’m going to give you two tips here and you can decide which one you want to bet.

If you think Phoenix will win bet Deandre Ayton to have 13+ Total Rebounds and PHO to Win (+142): Ayton has two games with 17 rebounds in this series. One game where his minutes were down because of foul trouble and another game with 11 rebounds. He’s been quiet getting offensive rebounds which could be a point of emphasis to get the Suns more chances. That means his numbers go up. I have a hard time seeing the Suns winning without a big rebounding game by him.

If you think Milwaukee will win bet Khris Middleton to have 20+ Points and MIL to Win (+154): Middleton’s point totals for this series are 29, 11, 18, and 40. Two big ones, one that is almost there, and the quiet game. The 11 point game should come with an asterisk as that was a dominating night by Giannis so he wasn’t needed as much. I’m not sure we see another one of those monster games this series and expect his totals to be more in line with his averages.
