Phoenix Suns vs Milwaukee Bucks (By: Miyagi)
The Bucks come from a rare loss, against Utah, which ended their 7-game winning streak. It was meant to be a tough game as Utah is playing great basketball on both ends recently and they had the momentum after their win against Denver on the road, yet, that game could have gone either way as the Bucks had the lead but a sloppy last quarter and especially their energy in the last 5 minutes cost them.
This will be the 5th straight game on the road for the Bucks, their 4th straight against a team from West and their 3rd game in 4 days, so, realistically speaking, the Bucks have some disadvantages here. Still, they have been great covering their lines on the road as their record is 15-9 ATS while they are also 12-2 ATS after a loss, which is the best record in the league, and shows how great they are at bouncing back in the best possible way.
The Bucks might have lost very few games this season but, when they do, they make sure to lose the most unexpected ones and I think they are the only top-5 team to have lost against the terrible Grizzlies, Suns, and Knicks.
The Suns have won 2 of their last 3 games and they come from that huge upset against the Lakers, yet that doesn't change the fact that they are one of the most inconsistent teams of the league and they have been hit or badly miss all season long. Statistically, the Suns are 14-17 ATS at home and 5-7 ATS after a win (yeah that happens too, occasionally).
The difference between those two teams is huge and there is no way the Bucks will underestimate the Suns again, so, I can see them going hard on their opponents early and crushing them while the difference should be at 20 points taking into consideration the possibility that the Bucks will decide to slow down at some point.
