Suns vs. Bucks Prediction
Two teams that have already been eliminated from postseason contention will meet tonight in Milwaukee when the Bucks host the Suns at 8:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Bucks are now -6.5 to beat the Suns after opening as a 7-point home favorite. As for the total, the number opened at 209.5 but has been bet up a full two points to 211.5.
The Suns have been a good play for bettors in Milwaukee, covering in four of their last five road games versus the Bucks. The road team is also a perfect 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings between these two teams and Phoenix is a perfect 6-0 against the spread in its last six games coming off a loss.
The Bucks, however, have not been a strong play at home. They're 0-4 against the spread in their last four home games and are also 3-8 against the number in their last 11 home games versus a team with a losing road record. Milwaukee has also dropped five of its last seven games against the spread overall.
After having two days off, the Bucks could come out rusty tonight and let the Suns hang around. Brandon Knight was on fire on Monday while finishing with 30 points, two rebounds, five assists, one block and seven 3-pointers in a win over the Timberwolves. If he plays like that again tonight, then Phoenix will cover.
