Milwaukee Bucks vs Phoenix Suns: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

It’s a rematch of the 2021 NBA finals between the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns as the two team lock horns for the first time this regular season. The adjustment period for Doc Rivers as the new man in charge for Milwaukee is currently ongoing, we just saw his team blow a 19-point lead in a 123-108 loss at Utah over the weekend. The Bucks scored just 13 points in the 4th quarter and got outscored by 27 during the period, which is very uncharacteristic for a Giannis Antetokounmpo led team. On paper, the Suns are a much tougher opponent than the Jazz, however the Bucks have had the edge in head-to-head meetings winning 7 of the last 8 and covering the spread in 6 of those. There is concern Damian Lillard could miss this game, he is questionable with an ankle issue.

Phoenix comes back home after a 7-game road trip where they went 4-3 SU, winning 3 of their last 4 games. Bradley Beal had one of his best games of the season as he went for 43 points in Sunday’s 140-112 win over his former team the Wizards. The big 3 of the Suns has been clicking in January, they’re 10-3 SU over their last 13 games which isn’t quite as good as the Clippers, but still very much respectable. Coming into tonight’s game, the Suns will look to exploit the Bucks’ weaknesses in the paint – Milwaukee allows the 8th highest number of points per game from inside the paint. With the news of Brook Lopez potentially sitting out yet another game, that is really good news for the likes of Kevin Durant, Devin Booker and Bradley Beal. Phoenix is 9-3 SU in their last 12 games vs Eastern Conference opponents.

Phoenix Suns Point Spread Prediction

Phoenix Suns -3.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

With 3 losses in 4 games it’s really hard to back the Bucks here. ESPN’s matchup predictor is giving Phoenix a 71% chance to win tonight’s game, and for good reason. They’re the more in-form team here, plus if Lillard doesn’t play the Bucks might have issues keeping this game close. I’m backing the Suns to cover.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Phoenix Suns Total Points Prediction: Under 246.5

Washington’s defense was no match for the firepower of the Suns who put 140 points past them over the weekend. This will be a big test for Doc Rivers and his coaching staff, as they try to figure out how to improve the Achilles heel of the Bucks this season – their defense. We’ve seen improvements in the 4 games he’s taken charge of since getting the job, the under has cashed in all 4 of those and just 1 opponent has been able to crack the 120-point mark against them. I’m expecting that downward trend to continue here, especially if Lillard sits this one out. As spectacular as he is on offense, nobody can convince me he is a plus player on the defensive end at this point of his career. The Suns have been scoring in bunches during this hot streak they’ve been on, but even their games have trended towards the under with 8 of the last 11 cashing on that bet. At the Footprint Center they’re 1-4 on the O/U in their last 5 games, so tonight’s projected total of 246.5 points is a very ambitious one in my opinion. These two teams are averaging just 224.3 points per game in the last 10 meetings, the 3 most recent ones have seen the under cash twice. I’m sticking with that bet once again, back the under.
