The Indiana Pacers will try to settle the score with the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday, as we offer our best Pacers vs. Bucks player props for Game 2 based on the best NBA odds.

The third-seeded Milwaukee Bucks delivered the opening punch with a Game 1 win over the Indiana Pacers on Sunday. Those two meet again on Tuesday for Game 2, which tips off at 8:30 p.m. ET on NBA TV from the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wis.

The Bucks are the 1.5-point favorites across our best sports betting sites after Damian Lillard's 35 points in the first half carried Milwaukee to a 109-94 win and preserved their NBA championship odds. Can Lillard replicate his stellar performance on Tuesday, or will the Pacers will rise to the occasion?

Here are our best Pacers vs. Bucks player props and NBA picks for Tuesday (odds via our best NBA betting sites; pick confidence based on a 1-to-5-star scale).

Pacers vs. Bucks prop bet predictions for Tuesday

Damian Lillard Over 2.5 1Q assists ⭐⭐⭐⭐

With Antetokounmpo on the bench, Lillard took it upon himself to carry the load offensively in Game 1. I'd be shocked if he doesn't try to replicate that in Game 2 - and I'd be equally surprised if Indiana lets him.

That's why I love this first-quarter assists prop for Lillard, who had two dimes in the opening period Sunday even as he was busy scoring 20 points. If the Pacers try to hard-hedge or even double Lillard along the perimeter, he's too skilled of a passer to not make them pay from the jump.

Lillard is dealing as short as -290 to have at least two assists in the first quarter - which carries implied odds of 74.36% by our odds converter - but remains at +160 to finish with three, which would net a $16 profit on a $10 wager.

Best odds: +160 via bet365

Tyrese Haliburton Over 29.5 points + assists ⭐⭐⭐

It was a rough Game 1 for Haliburton, who scored just nine points with eight assists in his career playoff debut. That came as the entire Pacers lineup bricked open shots left and right and finished an uncharacteristic 8-for-38 from deep (21.1%).

I don't expect that to continue for the NBA's second-best unit by offensive rating (122.2). Similarly, Haliburton should return to form after averaging 27 points and 11 points in five games against the Bucks in the regular season.

If even a few shots fall that didn't in Game 1, Haliburton should be able to cash this prop, which would turn a $10 bet into a $19.80 return.

Khris Middleton Under 19.5 points ⭐⭐⭐

Middleton impressed in the box score Sunday with 23 points, his fourth 20-point game in his last nine playoff contests. But he scored 15 of those points after halftime when the game had been all but decided by Lillard's torrid first half.

The 32-year-old wing had quietly scored fewer than 20 points in five of his previous eight games without Antetokounmpo, though it seems our best sportsbooks are still buying into a big game from the 12th-year pro. I'd rather fade this total at these -104 odds, which return a $19.62 payout on a $10 bet.

Best odds: -104 via FanDuel
