Milwaukee Bucks vs. Chicago Bulls Player Prop Pick: Can You Count on Khris Middleton From Deep?

One thing they don't tell you in school is that Easter Sunday is a great day to gamble. For starters, Easter is always on a Sunday so it has the inside track to gambling greatness. I'm sure if we counted up all of the greatest days in gambling history, more of them happened on a Sunday than any other day. Nobody will dispute that unless they just like being wrong. On this particular Easter Sunday, we've got MLB and the NBA Playoffs. Not the play-in tournament but the real-deal playoffs. That's our target people. It almost feels like Christmas Day it's just we only have four games instead of five. Whatever. Four is enough. I'm going to lay low (probably not) on the first two games but you had better believe the Chicago Bulls vs Milwaukee Bucks game is going to get bet. It's at 6:30 pm ET so it's pretty much perfect. I can't wait.

Khris Middleton Over 2.5 Made Threes (+102) (Bet $100 to Win $102)

*Odds Available at FanDuel at Time of Publishing*

This one is at FanDuel but you can play it at DraftKings or BetMGM too. The only difference is both DraftKings and BetMGM are hanging +100. Still, you could do a lot worse for an animal like Middleton on a line like this. I would have expected -300 but here we are. We should probably take advantage.

Khris Middleton is the Rodney Dangerfield of the NBA. He gets no respect. It's sad really but it makes sense. Anytime you have an absolute freak like Giannis Antetokounmpo playing by your side, you tend to go unnoticed. Still, I think having Giannis out there helps Middleton. Especially in playoff games. The guy is a sniper that stands behind the three-point line but can't be given the proper attention because of the Greek Freak. It's perfect.

In the first 10 games of the playoffs last season, Middleton drained at least three three-pointers in eight of them. So we know he's a gamer. This is his time to shine. What's even better is he's in good form. Over his last three games he's drained three three-balls in all of them. In two of those games he failed to even play more than 28 minutes. It's like he's just waiting to drop threes all over the place every time he takes the floor.

All that is fine but what truly makes this the perfect bet is the fact that the Bucks are playing the Bulls. On the season, only three teams in the entire NBA allowed opponents to shoot a higher percentage of three-pointers than Chicago. We're talking 36.6% here people. That's crazy. In their last three games, they're allowing 43.5%. My god that's bad. One of those games was against the Bucks and Middleton went 3/10 from downtown. I bet he hits at least three again this evening.
