Looking for some NBA prop bets to wager on for Monday?

The Milwaukee Bucks won’t have Damian Lillard against the Utah Jazz, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t props to wager on in this game. 

The Jazz have a couple of players to target, including a guard who has played a lot of minutes, but may not be getting a ton of love in the prop game.

Let’s dive into three picks for this game, with Utah set as a major underdog: 

Jazz vs. Bucks best NBA prop bets 

  • John Collins OVER 5.5 rebounds
  • Khris Middleton OVER 19.5 points
  • Kris Dunn OVER 0.5 3-pointers made

John Collins OVER 5.5 rebounds

John Collins is averaging 7.8 rebounds per game this season, but he’s seen his prop number decrease with his minutes also taking a hit as of late. 

I think 5.5 rebounds is low enough to jump back on the Collins train, especially since he recently had a double-digit rebound game in just 21:55 against the Boston Celtics. 

Despite their size, the Bucks rank just 18th in the NBA in rebounding percentage. This is a favorable matchup for Collins, as the Jazz should try to play with more size to combat the Brook Lopez-Giannis Antetokounmpo lineups. 

Khris Middleton OVER 19.5 points

This is a Khris Middleton game if I’ve ever seen one, as the Jazz rank 23rd in the NBA in defensive rating and the Bucks will need more offense with Lillard out of action. 

Middleton was held to just 10 points in his last game, but he has five games with 20 or more points since Dec. 17. 

The former All-Star has taken a smaller role (partially due to injuries) this season, but I expect him to step up and fill the void from Lillard, who is taking 17.2 shots per game. 

Kris Dunn OVER 0.5 3-pointers made

This is a bit of a long shot, but I don’t mind it with Kris Dunn getting starts for the Utah Jazz as of late. 

Dunn is shooting 34.1 percent from 3-point range, and he’s started nine straight games for Utah.

He’s only taken 1.9 3-pointers per game over that stretch, but dating back to Dec. 6, he has seven games with a made 3 – attempting 2.0 shots per game. He’s worth a shot to make one from deep, as he’s attempted at least one 3 in every game over this nine-game stretch.
