Bookmaker has installed the Suns as a - 2 point favorite. 

Milwaukee Bucks Betting Preview

The Bucks (33-17) have been a great team this season and knowing the NBA is a long grind, teams will have some moments where they hit the skids and right now the Bucks are in the midst of a little hiccup, as they have dropped three of four and four out of six overall. 

Milwaukee has a deep and talented roster and they have some of the most versatile players in the league on the floor at the same time, including the face of the franchise in Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is averaging a monster 31.3 points per game to go along with 11.4 rebounds per contest. He is having an MVP-like season and believes that this team has the makings of another run to a title. 

Along with Antetokounmpo, is veteran point guard Damian Lillard who is netting around 24.9 points per game to go along with 4.2 boards per contest. He is a great player and has provided a nice spark to this offense. 

Phoenix Suns Betting Preview

The Suns (29-21) have not played up to the level they are accomstated to playing at. They are such a tricky team to follow and bet on, because you never know which Suns squad will show up. They have the depth and the talent to compete but they have always been a disappointing team over the last several years when it comes to winning when it counts. 

They have won 10 of 13 and in the process have been able to dig themselves out of an early season hole. However, they need to make that deep run into the playoffs, because they know their window for a championship is closing rapidly. 

Overall, they are still led by the face of the franchise in Kevin Durant, who is averaging around 27 a game and he is also doing a nice job of taking over games like he used to earlier in his prime. Guard Devin Booker has played well too, he is netting around 27 a game and look for him to push the pace and the tempo, pushing the ball up the floor.
