Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks made a statement against the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. His 48 points and 11 assists led the way for the Hawks to steal one on the road. Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks better come back strong in Game 2 or they are going to be in trouble.

Oddsmakers have installed the Bucks as the favorite over the Hawks ahead of Game 2, but let’s turn our attention to our best player prop bet picks between these two teams.

Trae Young Over 30.5 Points (-102, FanDuel)

You would be crazy to bet against Trae Young in any way for this series. The third-year point guard has been a one-man wrecking crew in these playoffs. There’s no reason to doubt Young after he torched two of the best defenses in the NBA in the first round and Eastern Conference Semifinals.

The Bucks have a great defense featuring two First Team All-Defense selections (Jrue Holiday and Giannis Antetokounmpo), but even they look like they are going to have a tough time slowing Young down. The diminutive guard is playing much bigger than anyone thought he would in the playoffs. He’s averaging 30.5 points through 13 playoff games exactly.

Young has another chance to make a statement in these playoffs and cement his status as a true superstar. Again, we think it’s insane to bet against Young right now.

Giannis Antetokounmpo 34+ Points & Win (+130, DraftKings)

For all the love that Trae Young has gotten in these playoffs (and rightfully so), we might be overlooking Giannis Antetokounmpo. Sure, he had a couple of shaky moments in the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Nets, but he’s been stellar for the vast majority of these playoffs.

The Hawks are going big against Giannis with a healthy diet of John Collins and Clint Capela on defense, but that doesn’t seem to slow him down. We expect the Bucks to bounce back with a win to even the series. If that’s the case, Antetokounmpo will be a big reason for the win. Even though 34 points is a bit high, but he’s scored 34 or more points in five of his last eight games.

Trae Young Over 4.5 Turnovers (+115, BetMGM)

OK, we kind of lied about betting against Trae Young. BetMGM is offering plus-money on the over for Young’s turnovers in Game 2 and that is too enticing to pass up. It’s almost a given that Young will have a few turnovers. Anyone who handles the ball as much as he does is bound to turn it over here and there.

Although Young only recorded 5+ turnovers in one of his first 11 playoff games, he has given it away six times in each of his last two games. He might have a few turnovers, but he’s also going to score a boatload of points.
