The Milwaukee Bucks and the Phoenix Suns duke it out at the PHX Arena on Wednesday night.
The Milwaukee Bucks have been on a tear lately as they've won seven of their past nine games and they will be looking to build on their current five-game win streak after routing the Nuggets in a 125-112 road win on Monday. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the team with 30 points, nine rebounds and three blocks, Khris Middleton added 29 points with 12 assists while Bryn Forbes chipped in with 15 points on six of nine shooting. As a team, the Bucks shot just 50 percent from the field and 16 of 40 from the 3-point line as they struggled to get going in the first half, before dominating the second half by 66-50 to win in a blowout.
Meanwhile, the Phoenix Suns have been in red-hot form as they've won six of their past seven games and they will be gunning for a fourth straight win after taking down the Cavaliers in a 119-113 home win on Monday. Devin Booker led the team with 36 points and eight assists on 14 of 27 shooting, Mikal Bridges added 22 points with five assists on eight of 10 shooting, E'Twaun Moore scored 17 points while DeAndre Ayton chipped in with 15 points, 16 rebounds and three blocks. As a team, the Suns shot 52 percent from the field and 11 of 24 from the 3-point line as they trailed by two points late in the fourth quarter before closing the game with a 5-0 run in the final 2:25 to escape with the narrow win.
Looking at the betting trends, the Bucks are 0-5 ATS in their last five games against a team above .600 and 5-0 ATS in their last five games overall. The Suns are 4-0 ATS in their last four home games, 15-4 ATS in their last 19 games against a team with a winning record and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall.
Head to head, the Bucks are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings overall.We're in for a good one as both teams are coming into this meeting with plenty of momentum.
However, both teams could be without their starting point guards as Jrue Holiday didn't even travel with the Bucks on this road trip, while Chris Paul could be out for the Suns with right hamstring soreness. I like the Suns in this spot if CP3 is able to suit up, but assuming he is rested, I'm taking the Bucks to stay hot with another win and cover here with the line so short.
