It appears the Milwaukee Bucks will be without star center Giannis Antetokounmpo in a pivotal Game 3 matchup against the Indiana Pacers on Friday. 

The Pacers packed a big bounce-back punch with a Game 2 victory at Fiser Forum earlier this week to tie the series at 1-1 as it moves to Gainbridge Fieldhouse. Indiana is a modest favorite in his matchup. Here are some prop bets to consider for Friday.

Best NBA prop bets today for Bucks vs. Pacers

  • Pascal Siakam OVER 26.5 points
  • Tyrese Haliburton UNDER 17.5 points
  • Khris Middleton UNDER 18.5 points

Pascal Siakam OVER 27.5 points 

This bet seems square given the series Siakam has had thus far, but the advantages he enjoyed during the first two games in Milwaukee will still be there in Indiana Friday night. Siakam has put up 36.5 points per game so far in this first-round battle and has combined to shoot 31-of-46 from the field, a blistering 64.6%. 

Siakam even stepped outside and knocked down three of his four 3-point attempts in Tuesday’s 125-108 victory over Milwaukee. The Bucks have already endured season-long struggles near the rim, ranking 19th in points in the paint allowed and 17th in defending two-point shots. Those problems are amplified without Antetokounmpo on the court and Siakam will be there to take advantage as the up-tempo Pacers stay on the attack against a Milwaukee defense that ranks 21st in the league in scoring.

Tyrese Haliburton UNDER 17.5 points

We’re expecting more of the same in Game 3 of this series, which suggests another slow night on the offensive end for Haliburton, who averages 20.1 points per game. Simply put, Haliburton’s opportunities just haven’t been there as the star guard has shot just 17 times combined in the first two games and hasn’t been effective. 

Haliburton has scored just 21 total points on 8-of-17 shooting with Patrick Beverly causing fits on the offensive end. Haliburton has been a key facilitator to the Pacers’ offense taking advantage of Giannis Antetokounmpo’s absence, turning in 20 assists over the first two games. 

Khris Middleton UNDER 18.5 points

Would’ve liked this bet with Middleton at 100%, but the veteran forward is dealing with an ankle injury and is officially listed as questionable for Game 3 after an ankle sprain. Middleton played 36 minutes in Game 2 and finished with just 15 points on 6-of-14 shooting. 

Middleton is averaging just 15.6 points per game on the road this season and has gone under this point total in five of his last six games, dating back to the final week of the regular season.
