Milwaukee Bucks vs. Boston Celtics Player Prop Prediction: Bank on Jrue Holiday to Get Buckets in Game 6

There is one thing that's true in almost every aspect of life. More is better. I was reminded of this phenomenon when I was looking at my gambling card for the night. I thought to myself, "more would probably be better here John." I agreed with myself which is why you're reading this article. Lucky for us, the second I opened the FanDuel app, I realized what bet needed to be added to this card. It is one I've been riding all week and there really isn't a reason to stop now. We're talking about a guy that is probably going to shoot the ball 20+ times tonight. Why would we not take his point total over? The man is playing at home too. Feels right.

Here is our player prop pick prediction and odds for Friday's game between the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Boston Celtics Prediction

Jrue Holiday Over 21.5 Points Alt Line (+112) (Bet $100 to Win $112)

*Odds Available at FanDuel at Time of Publishing*

Once again we find ourselves at FanDuel for this one. I love a good alt line and they are the alt line kings. DraftKings has what I am guessing is their version of the alt line but it requires you to bet Jrue Holiday 35+ points for +1400. Could that happen? I guess, but why not just play the lotto? Feels like it's a better deal.

I've been talking about Jrue Holiday all week. The guy is so much more than just a cool first name though. One look at his Twitter bio and you know he's legit. It's a quote by Francis Chan and it goes like this, "Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don't really matter." Honestly, I don't even know what that means. Sounds like a knock on video games but it's hard to tell. Still, one thing is for sure, Jrue is a thinking man which means he's smart.

Holiday has to be smart enough to know that 21.5 points are pretty low for his point total given the volume that he's seen in this series. Everyone knew that he would be taking more shots with Khris Middleton out but this is ridiculous. The guy has taken 20+ shots in every game in this series. He's taken at least 22 in the last three games including one where he took 30 attempts from the floor.

The Bucks know that they have to win tonight or they are in a world of trouble. If they lose they have to go back to Boston for Game 7 which nobody really wants to do. I don't know if they win tonight because of that but they should keep it close. If that happens, Holiday should stay on the floor for 40+ minutes, leading to 20+ shots again. He has yet to shoot his season average from the floor in this series so if he does that we're gold. If not, then we need to rely on free throws (which he hasn't missed even one in this series) and three-pointers. Any way you look at it, the line should be -120 or more on this number. This is a good bet.
