Milwaukee Bucks Betting

The Bucks dropped their last assignment against the Los Angeles Lakers but are expected to bounce back Sunday. Already assured of a playoff seat, the Bucks now focus on securing the best record this regular season. However, the Bucks could be missing Giannis Antetokounmpo against the Suns. Hence, it will be up to Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe to fill up the void. The Bucks are expected to come out with guns ablazing and compliment that with decent defense. Milwaukee his holding down opponents to 106.8 points per game.

Players to watch: G. Antetokounmpo PF 56 GP 56 GS 30.8 MIN 29.6 PTS 2.3 OR 11.5 DR 13.8 REB 5.8 AST 1 STL 1 BLK 3.7 TO 3 PF 1.6 AST/TO 31.84 PER

Phoenix Suns Betting

The Phoenix Suns continue to look for answers although Aron Baynes rose to the occasion last game. He surprised many when he went off for 37-points against the Portland Trail Blazers. Baynes will try to replicate that against the Bucks. Devin Booker remains the player to watch on offense with some other guys contributing too. Phoenix will have its work cut out trying to contain the offensive-minded Bucks. Limiting the opposition to just 113.5 points may not cut it, meaning more effort is needed.

Players to Watch: D. Booker SG 59 GP 59 GS 36.1 MIN 25.9 PTS 0.4 OR 3.7 DR 4.1 REB 6.4 AST 0.7 STL 0.2 BLK 3.9 TO 3 PF 1.6 AST/TO 19.74 PER
