Bucks props and futures odds
Basketball prop bets usually focus on player and team stats, while futures are about the season as a whole. Popular Bucks game props may include bets on the following:
- Giannis Antetokounmpo to score over or under 26.5 points.
- Jrue Holiday to record over or under 6.5 assists.
- Khris Middleton to hit five or more 3-point field goals.
And here are some examples of Bucks futures bets:
- The Bucks to win the Central Division, make the playoffs, win the Western Conference (go to the NBA Finals) or win the NBA Finals (NBA playoffs/Finals odds).
- Milwaukee to win over or under a certain number of regular-season games.
- Team scoring, rebounding and assist leaders.

- Jrue Holiday to win Most Improved Player.
- Bobby Portis to win Sixth Man of the Year.
You’ll book any Bucks futures bets at the odds at the time you place the bet. These odds can change throughout the year, but you lock your bet in when you place it. Most of the time, this means the earlier in the season, the better the betting odds.
Bucks Vegas odds vs. local odds
Since Las Vegas is the original home of legal sports betting in North America, you’ve probably heard people talking about Vegas odds before. These are the odds you would find at Las Vegas sportsbooks. These days, the odds on a typical Bucks game are the same or similar at Vegas sportsbooks as they are at online sportsbooks in Canada. Or at the very least, they start out that way. Odds can change, and a change in Vegas doesn’t necessarily mean that the same change will happen in Canada.
Sportsbook lines aim to draw an equal amount of betting on both sides of a wager. Sportsbooks make a profit from the vig that they factor into these odds, not whether one side or the other wins. That’s why, if there’s heavy betting on one side, sportsbooks will change the odds to try to attract more betting on the other side. Only the sportsbook that drew the big bet(s) will make that change, which is why you might end up with different Bucks odds in Vegas compared to places in Canada.
Because the Bucks have become such a favourite in parts of Canada, however, betting sites that may be active in the country — such as BetMGM Sportsbook and Caesars Sportsbook in Canada — may have to react more often than Vegas books would.

What is the Bucks logo and mascot?
Bango the Buck is the Bucks’ official mascot. His name comes from the word that longtime play-by-play announcer Eddie Doucette used whenever the Bucks hit a three. The team’s logo has long featured an image of a Buck with the Milwaukee Bucks name and traditional forest green colours.

Since 2015, the Bucks have had no fewer than 20 individuals and groups be part owners of the team. In 2014, billionaire businessman and hedge fund manager Marc Lasry became co-owner, leading the group that bought the Bucks from Herb Kohl for $550 million. Here are some other members:
- Craig Karmazin, CEO of the company that owns the team’s flagship radio station

- Best postseason run: The 1971 Bucks went 4-1, 4-1 and 4-0 through the playoffs to win the NBA title. The 2021 Bucks went 4-0, 4-3, 4-2 and 4-2 through the playoffs to win the title.
- Greatest player: The debate continues. It’s either Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the Bucks career leader in points per game, rebounds per game and blocks per game and a three-time MVP who was part of the 1971 title-winning team, or Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Bucks career leader in triple-doubles and a Defensive POY winner and two-time MVP who led the 2021 title winners. Abdul-Jabbar is a legend, but another ring as a Buck may give Giannis the edge, and he’s still in his prime.
