The Bucks and Celtics now play the best of three to see who advances to the Eastern Conference finals.
Boston is a 5.5-point favorite at home in Game 5 (PointsBet) and while we await tip-off, let’s take a look at some betting props to consider:
Betting Props to Consider
Giannis Antetokounmpo: Over 6.5 Assists (-125)
Giannis has gone over this total in three of four contests during this series with his only under coming in Game 4 where he had just five on a series-high 15 potential assists. There’s some risk of this becoming even more of a defensive battle than previous games, as teams typically clamp up each other more as a long, competitive series progresses. Still, this prop is one to consider.
Brook Lopez: Under 0.5 Assists (-136)
It’s a low bar to hit and Brook Lopez has only hit it once in this series (Game 3 in Milwaukee where he had two assists). He’s thrown 58 passes in the series and totaled just two potential assists with Boston’s defense stifling the ranging center. Taking into account how poorly he’s played on the road vs. home, this is one where I’ll play the numbers.
