Nets stars Ben Simmons and Mikal Bridges could be poised for big games on the glass, and there is one Milwaukee star who is too good to pass up in the prop market on Monday.

Bucks vs. Nets best NBA prop bets today
- Ben Simmons OVER 15.5 Rebounds and Assists
- Mikal Bridges OVER 4.5 Rebounds
- Giannis Antetokounmpo OVER 25.5 Points
Ben Simmons OVER 15.5 Rebounds and Assists
Ben Simmons did not play in the Nets’ last game, but he’s been terrific at stuffing the stat sheet so far this season.
The former All-Star is averaging 7.4 points, 10.0 rebounds, and 7.2 assists per game for the Nets, clearing 15.5 rebounds and assists in four of his five games this season.
The one game he fell short? Simmons still finished with 15 rebounds and assists. The Bucks are 28th in the NBA in rebounding percentage this season, so I expect Simmons to have a big rebounding game tonight.
Mikal Bridges OVER 4.5 Rebounds
Sticking with the rebounding theme, Mikal Bridges has been great on the glass for the Nets, putting up 5.3 rebounds per game and grabbing at least six boards in four of his six games.
He should be able to hit the glass with relative ease against this Milwaukee team, and the Nets are down a couple of key players in Nic Claxton and Cam Johnson that should lead to more minutes – and rebound chances – for Bridges.
Giannis Antetokounmpo OVER 25.5 Points
This number has fallen too low for Giannis Antetokounmpo for me to avoid taking the OVER.
The Bucks superstar is still finding his way in this offense with Damian Lillard in the fold, taking just 10 shots in the team’s last game, but he’s still cleared this line twice this season.
Giannis averaged 31.1 points per game on 20.3 shots per game last season, but he’s seen his shots dip to 15.4 per game so far this season. He’s due for more looks, and with this prop sinking to 25.5, I think it’s the perfect time to take the OVER.
