Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Milwaukee Bucks Player Prop Pick: Bank on Bobby Portis Collecting Boards

It is Wednesday night, and that means we have a good NBA slate to jump into. The NBA plays were rolling last night until we missed the Hornets team total under by one basket, so we will start a new streak in tonight's game! I am going to be looking at a prop in a game between two of the best teams in the Eastern Conference to this point in the season. The Milwaukee Bucks will travel to Cleveland to take on the red-hot Cavaliers.

The Bucks are the defending NBA champions, and they are playing a team tonight many people had low expectations for in the Cavs. The ironic thing is that the Bucks are only a four-point favorite over this Cavs team tonight. If you told someone coming into the season, most would not believe you, but yet here we are talking about this Cavs team and the postseason. They also have had to deal with a lot of injuries during the year, including their best player Collin Sexton. The Bucks know a thing or two about the injury bug as well, dealing with several guys out of the lineup throughout the course of the season. The Bucks will have their three best players in the lineup tonight, with Jrue Holiday, Giannis, and Khris Middelton all set to go tonight.

Bobby Portis Over 8.5 Rebounds (-130) (Bet $130 to Win $100)

The pick I am turning to in this game is a player prop. We are going to be backing Bobby Portis, the Bucks acting center, to get over eight and a half rebounds in this game tonight. I am six for six betting on Portis this season, so I have the most confidence in his player props than perhaps anyone else in the NBA. This guy simply loves to rebound the basketball, and he's very good at doing it. I think we are getting a decent line here tonight, with this line sitting at 8.5.

Portis has been a machine against this number since he took over as the starting center for Brook Lopez. Portis has gone over this number seven of his last eight games and will get chances to clean up on the glass again tonight. The Cavs are also allowing some of the most rebounds in all of the NBA to opposing centers, and Jarrett Allen will be a game-time decision for this game. Allen is a good rebounder, but he will not be at one hundred percent if he goes tonight. I love the line we are getting on Portis for this matchup, and we will continue to roll tonight!
