Phoenix Suns vs Milwaukee Bucks: Prediction and Betting Tips

02:00, Jul 18 2021
Phoenix Suns vs Milwaukee Bucks prediction for Sunday’s game five of the NBA finals at the Phoenix Suns Arena in Phoenix. After both the Suns and the Bucks won two of the games on home court, the series is now back to Phoenix for game five. Read on for our free prediction and betting tips.

Phoenix Suns to use their home fans to lead the series

The Phoenix Suns haven’t won more than two games in their previous two appearances in the NBA finals. The Suns were very close to break that deadlock and win their third game of the series as they were leading by seven points at the end of the third quarter.

Devin Booker scored 42 points but was benched by coach Monty Williams after he committed his fifth foul in the last minute of the third quarter. Chris Paul had a very quiet game with just ten points and seven assists.  As the series moves back to Phoenix, the Suns will make their best to take advantage of their home court, something they fought for all season.

Suns Key Stats

  • The Suns are committing 12 turnovers per match in the Finals 
  • The free throw percentage by the Suns is 85% in the Finals
  • 20 assists per game are the Suns average in the Finals

The first part of the job done for the Milwaukee Bucks

The Bucks did their job in their two home games and registered two wins which kept them in the series. They now must travel to Phoenix and come back with a win and get the home-court advantage to their side. Giannis Antetokoumnpo and Khris Middleton took turns to lead their team in games three and four.

It was Middleton’s turn in game four who was the best scorer with 42 points. He scored ten straight points in the final two minutes outsourcing the Suns 10-4 and guided his team to a crucial victory in the series. Giannis on the other hand had a great defensive game grabbing 14 rebounds and three steals and two block shots. 

Bucks Key Stats

  • The Bucks have 6.7 block shots per game in the Finals
  • The number of turnovers per match by the Bucks is 8.1
  • The number of rebounds per game by the Bucks is 47

Phoenix Suns vs Milwaukee Bucks Prediction 

The Suns will have to find back the form they were in during the first two games of the series. So far playing at home court proved to be a key factor in the series as no team could win a match on the road.

It has been a tough series with both teams giving everything they got. It may come down to very small details to decide the winner of the series. If Booker keeps on playing the same way he did in game four and Chris Paul helps with over 20 points, the Suns could take the lead.

Coach Budenholzer will make sure not to fall in the same traps they did in games one and two when Booker and Paul used the pick and roll to play 1v1 on the Bucks’ tall guys who were too slow to guard them.

Anything is possible from now on in this series. Coaches Williams and Budenholzer know each other’s teams very well and used their tactics in the best possible fashion to grab wins. Now it’s all up to a standout player who can have an impact on the game in money time.

We will go with the total points scored in the game and predict that it will be a low one.
