Betting on the Phoenix Suns (+5)
Regular Season Record: 51-21
For the first time in the series, Chris Paul and the Suns find their backs against the wall. After going up 2-0 in the 2021 NBA Finals, it all looked as though Phoenix was on its way to a sweep, but that changed when the series shifted to Milwaukee and now the Suns are out to fight for the extension of their title hopes. Despite their 123-119 loss in Game 5 at home, the Suns should remain confident in Paul and Devin Booker. Those two have been constant thorns in the side of Milwaukee, especially the latter, who dropped 40 points on 17/33 shooting in Game 5. Booker is averaging 30.0 points on 47.1 percent shooting from the field in the series. Meanwhile, Paul recovered from a poor Game 4 performance by scoring 21 points to go with 11 assists in Game 5.
The Suns are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games as the underdog. They are also 20-8 against the spread in their last 28 games after failing to cover in the previous contest.
Betting on the Milwaukee Bucks (-5)
Regular Season Record: 46-26
Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks are feeling it. They have a shot at closing the series and winning the franchise’s first NBA title in 50 years this Tuesday in front of their home crowd. Milwaukee finally solved their woes in the Suns’ territory in Game 5, thanks in large part to the collective effort of their Big Three. Antetokounmpo had 32 points, nine rebounds, and six assists, while Khris Middleton scored 29 points. Jrue Holiday perhaps played the biggest of them all, with 27 points, 13 assists, and an array of huge defensive plays in Game 5. His ability to wreak havoc on the defensive end of the floor will be so crucial for the Bucks in Game 6, as they look to stop the Suns from gaining any momentum early and keep Phoenix from making quality baskets in the clutch.
The Bucks are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games at home. They are also 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games overall.
The Suns win, 110-107.
