The Milwaukee Bucks also need a win in order to snap a tough five-game losing streak.

The Suns are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest and 8-22 ATS in their last 30 road games. The Bucks are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Suns are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Milwaukee.
The Bucks have played their best ball on their home court. The Suns have had no luck on the road all year, which includes covers in just eight of their last 30 tries. Don't love decent chalk with a team on a five-game skid, but the Bucks should be able to win and cover in this spot.
