The Phoenix Suns need a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 113 points on 46.3 percent shooting and allowing 113.5 points on 47.2 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 27.1 points and 6.4 assists while Kelly Oubre Jr. is averaging 18.5 points and 6.6 rebounds. Deandre Ayton is the third double-digit scorer and Ricky Rubio is dishing 8.8 assists. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 34.6 percent from beyond the arc and 81.4 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 36.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.6 rebounds per game. The Phoenix Suns have won four of their last five road games.
The Milwaukee Bucks look to stay hot after winning 14 of their last 16 games. The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 119.9 points on 48.3 percent shooting and allowing 107.5 points on 41.2 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 30 points and 13 rebounds while Khris Middleton is averaging 20.2 points and 5.8 rebounds. Eric Bledsoe is the third double-digit scorer and Brook Lopez is grabbing 4.6 rebounds. The Milwaukee Bucks are shooting 36.1 percent from beyond the arc and 73.1 percent from the free throw line. The Milwaukee Bucks are allowing 36.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 51.5 rebounds per game. The Milwaukee Bucks have won five of their last six home games.
The Suns are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Sunday games and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Bucks are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 Sunday games. The under is 4-1 in Suns last 5 overall. The over is 5-1 in Bucks last 6 home games. The Suns are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Milwaukee and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The under is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings in Milwaukee and 8-2 in the last 10 meetings.
I fade and bash the Phoenix Suns often due to the respect they get from oddsmakers, but they're actually decent in the underdog role and have covered 14 of their 26 road games this season. The Milwaukee Bucks continue to pile up the wins, but they've failed to cover five of their last seven home games and are just 10-15 ATS as a double-digit favorite. The Suns also beat the Bucks twice last year and were double-digit underdogs in both meetings. Give me the points.
