NBA Playoff Player Prop Picks From Beyond the Arc: Bank On Grayson Allen and Pat Connaughton In Game 5

Today we are betting on a dynamic duo of shooters from the Milwaukee Bucks. While the Bulls are down Zach LaVine and likely Alex Caruso, they are forced into a tough spot in a win-or-go-home game tonight. The Bucks comfortably have the lead, but with their playoff experience, they know better than to take their foot off the pedal. If the Bulls can keep this game remotely close, it sets up to be a great environment for Player Props.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Chicago Bulls Picks

Grayson Allen Over 2.5 3PM +115 (Bet $110 to win $115)

Pat Connaughton Over 2.5 +3PM +220 (Bet $100 to Win $220) 

When Khris Middleton went out with injury, I said that I was going to bet both Allen and Connaughton 3+ 3PM every game for the rest of the series. While we may only be getting 1 more game of that, it was a success in game 1. Despite the Blowout, Grayson Allen absolutely showed out, scoring 27 points on 6-7 shooting from beyond the arc. Allen is traditionally a spot up shooter, and while hes shown he can excel in that role, we saw what he could do when more usage was given to him.

Pat Connaughton only ended up going 1-3 in the 28 minutes he played last game. While that's a below average performance, I think the blowout nature of the game killed his chances. He’s an opportunistic shooter, not someone that necessarily is looking for his own shot, and with a more competitive game script should get increased opportunity. Pat contributes a lot to the team and I’m projecting him for 30+ minutes, he should get 5-6 opportunities.
