The Suns are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 12-3 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The Bucks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 4-0 in Suns last 4 overall. The over is 4-0 in Bucks last 4 overall. The Suns are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Milwaukee and 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The over is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings.
The Bucks should be the favorite, as you're going to get their best effort with them at home and being down 0-2 in the series. However, the Bucks role players are hard to trust, and they lost game 1 while shooting well from three and then lost game 2 while getting the game of Giannis' life. As I've said time and time again, the Suns have been the most consistent team throughout these playoffs and there's no reason to bet against them. I'm not turning down free points with the Suns.
