The Milwaukee Bucks travel to face the Miami Heat in a rematch of last year’s NBA playoffs matchup, and we have you covered with Bucks vs. Heat NBA player props based on the best NBA odds.
After losing to the Miami Heat in the first round of last year’s NBA postseason, the Milwaukee Bucks are back for vengeance on Tuesday in an all-important matchup for seeding in the NBA In-Season Tournament.
Injuries will likely play a key role in Tuesday’s outcome, as the Heat will be without Tyler Herro (ankle) and could be missing Jimmy Butler (ankle), Bam Adebayo (hip), and Duncan Robinson (thumb), among others.
The Bucks could also be without Khris Middleton (Achilles), who missed Milwaukee’s epic comeback win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday and is uncertain to play on Tuesday.
To complement our NBA player props and best bets for Tuesday, here are our best Bucks vs. Heat NBA player props and NBA picks (odds via our
best NBA betting sites; pick confidence based on a 1-to-5-star scale).
Bucks vs. Heat NBA player props
Giannis Antetokounmpo Over 30.5 points (-113 via FanDuel) ⭐⭐⭐⭐
In a game riddled with injuries on both sides, Antetokounmpo is sure to carry the load for the Bucks in their final game of group play for the NBA In-Season Tournament.
Milwaukee can secure a perfect 4-0 record in Group B and clinch a spot in the knockout round with a win Tuesday, having already won seven of its last eight games ahead of this playoff rematch with the budding rival Heat.
Antetokounmpo has done much of the heavy lifting in that stretch. The two-time MVP is averaging 33.4 points on 61.5% shooting over his last five games, and he’s scored at least 31 points in four of those five games and seven of his last nine contests.
With Middleton iffy, Antetokounmpo should again carry the torch offensively against a Heat defense that won’t be at full strength even if Butler and Adebayo do suit up. This prop is dealing anywhere from -115 to -130 on the Over elsewhere, so getting -113 odds at FanDuel is the icing on the cake for this bet.

I had to do a double-take when I first saw this line on Adebayo, who ranks ninth in rebounds per game (10.4) and has been a beast on the boards in recent weeks — when he plays, at least.
That’s really the main concern with this prop and the only reason it doesn’t get a five-star endorsement. Adebayo missed Saturday’s loss in Brooklyn with a hip injury, though he was a full participant in practice Monday and should be among the only key players starting for Miami.
If he does, expect him to attack the glass with reckless abandon. The All-Star center has grabbed at least 11 boards in seven of his last nine games, and he posted 17 rebounds in his last start with Butler sidelined.
Adebayo has finished with at least 11 rebounds in five of his last six games vs. Milwaukee, and he’s easily worth a 50/50 wager to do it again.
