Milwaukee Bucks vs Phoenix Suns: Prediction and Betting Suns
Milwaukee Bucks need to step up to secure their first win
The Bucks are chasing the series after falling behind by two games. Coach Budenholzer’s team tried all they can in the first two games to trouble the Suns but to no avail. Even a 100% healthy Giannis Antetokoumnpo’s efforts who scored 42 points and 12 rebounds, weren’t enough for the Bucks to steal a win in Phoenix.
The other Bucks members didn’t contribute enough. Khris Middleton scored 11 points and was 3-5 from the arc. Jrue Holiday had 17 points and seven assists. Budenholzer must urge his team to step up and play as they were without Giannis in the series against Atlanta. Probably the Bucks need to adopt a style of play in which they don’t rely too much on one player.
Bucks key stats
- The Bucks have an average of 109.5 points per game in the playoffs
- The field goal percentage of the Bucks is 45.9% in the playoffs
- The average three-point shots made by the Bucks is 31.7%
Phoenix Suns looking for a win in Milwaukee
The Phoenix Suns accomplished the first part of their mission in the finals winning both of the matches at the Phoenix Arena in front of their fans. Devin Booker led his team with 31 points making seven of his 12 shots from the arc in an incredible shooting display by the Suns shooting guard as he guided his team to a 2-0 lead in the series.
Chris Paul didn’t let Booker do all the work as he contributed with 23 points and seven assists himself. The Suns had an amazing shooting night from the arc with a 50% record hitting 20-40 shots from downtown. All the Suns have to do now is win their remaining two home games. Coach Monty Williams will try to get a win from the coming two matches which will definitely seal the deal for the Suns.
Suns Key Stats
- The Suns are scoring 109.9 points per game in the playoffs
- The average field goals by the Suns is 47.8 in the playoffs
- The average three-point shots made by the Suns is 37.9
Milwaukee Bucks vs Phoenix Suns Prediction
It is expected from the Bucks to make a comeback and win game three as the bookies are suggesting. The Bucks couldn’t handle the pressure at the Phoenix Arena but they will look to turn the tables when they host the Suns at the Fiserv Forum.
Major adjustments need to be done by coach Budenholzer though. He has to find a solution to the Suns’ pick-and-roll which they used so successfully in the first two games. Budenholzer needs to find a way for more of his players to get involved in scoring and not just rely on Giannis.
onty Williams on the other hand will keep his tactics and use the pace of Booker and Paul against the tall centers of the Suns who are not able to keep up. It will be tough for the Suns though as the pressure will be very high by the home crowd.
We think the Bucks can win this game if they adjust what we mentioned before. With an odd of 1.65 for the Bucks win at Vbet, we will back that.
