We’ve got ourselves a series now, as the Milwaukee Bucks won Game 4 of the NBA Finals and tied up the series against the Phoenix Suns. Many people thought this series was reaching an inevitable conclusion, with the Suns running away with it. That will certainly not be the case, as the city of Milwaukee got behind its team and willed them to a big victory. But now we turn our attention to our NBA Finals Prop Bets for Game 5.
Most NBA betting sites have the Bucks listed as -4.5 favorites and the game total at 220 points. Again, this is pretty much identical to what we saw in Game 3, on both the spread and total.
Continuing with the same theme in these NBA Finals, I will be pointing out the best prop bets for Game 5. Below, you’ll find a prop bet for each team, and a player prop bet from each team.
For picks on the moneyline, spread, or total, check out our top NBA picks between the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns.
NBA Finals Prop bets – Game 5
Milwaukee Bucks – Win by 1-10 Points (+230)
Something changed in this series, possibly the injuries to Torrey Craig and Dario Saric. Craig hasn’t been the same since his injury, and that’s been a detriment when it comes to defending The Greek. The Suns seem to be slowing down a bit, especially with CP3 having those notable struggles.
Phoenix Suns – Under 111.5 Team Total Points (-120)
As I just mentioned above, Paul’s struggles have really been something to think about. I know the Phoenix crowd will be jacked up for this game beyond all belief, but I doubt it’ll help them offensively. I do believe the Bucks will have a much better game plan defensively, and that’ll ultimately be the difference.
NBA Finals Player Prop Bets – Game 5
Chris Paul – Over 21.5 Points (-108)
This is a game where I can see CP3 being more of a facilitator rather than scoring. If his shot isn’t falling early, Paul is smart enough to know his weaknesses and make adjustments on the fly. Look for him to struggle early but still get others involved.
I’m never 100% confident in Giannis scoring the basketball, but he can certainly get himself involved in the game in other ways. This 39.5-number isn’t exactly all that tough to hit, so I’m confident that we’ll get there. This is the rubber-match Game 5 we’ve all been waiting for, so both teams will definitely bring their best defensively.
