Suns vs. Bucks Prediction: NBA Finals Game 6 FanDuel Same Game Parlay Picks
Man, my Game 5 FanDuel Same Game Parlay felt so good. I just needed the Suns to win and it would have cashed at odds over +1000. We hit Giannis Antetokounmpo under 13.5 rebounds, Giannis Antetokounmpo under 0.5 3-pointers made and Chris Paul over 8.5 assists. It was just that pesky Suns -4 bet that got in the way of cashing out.
But, this time around, the NBA Finals head back to Milwaukee and the Bucks have a good chance to close out their first NBA title since the 1970s. There are a few markets that I love for this potentially deciding game that I’ll be including in my FanDuel Same Game Parlay.

Leg 1: Phoenix Suns +5 @ -114
Let me just get this out of the way. I think the Bucks will win this game, taking home the NBA Finals in six games. Giannis Antetokounmpo will win MVP and we can stop hearing about how he isn’t a true superstar, which is one of the more ridiculous takes in sports. But, five points is a lot to lay against this Suns team.
During the regular season, the Phoenix Suns had the second best record against the spread in the entire NBA. Chris Paul will be the best leader on the floor come Tuesday night and he’s not going to let his team go into Milwaukee and get blown out in his first ever trip to the NBA Finals.
I thought the Suns would win this series originally, but they seem destined to lose after squandering their 2-0 series lead. Give me a Bucks one-possession win here as the NBA title returns to Milwaukee for the first time in almost 50 years.
Leg 2: Giannis Antetokounmpo Under 13.5 Rebounds @ -134
This one hit so easily in Game 5 that I couldn’t just let it sit there and not take it. I’m not sure where we’re getting this 13.5 number from, but it’s a lot to ask from any player. Giannis is averaging 12.8 rebounds per game this post season. He averaged 11 rebounds per game in the regular season and has had more than 14 rebounds just once this NBA Finals.
Like I said, Giannis Antetokounmpo will win NBA Finals MVP. He impacts the game a ton of different ways and rebounding is one of them. But, 13.5 is too many to be setting for his total, especially with guys like Deandre Ayton and Brook Lopez on the court to clean up the boards.
Leg 3: Devin Booker Over 30.5 Points @ -110
Devin Booker has had one bad game this NBA Finals and it came in Game 3 when he scored just 10 points on 3-14 shooting. But, outher than that, Booker has been on fire. Excluding Game 3, Devin Booker is averaging 35 points per game in the NBA Finals. Even if you include his down Game 3, he’s averaging 30 points per game. Booker has scored at least 40 points in each of the last two games in this series. The Bucks have made it obvious that they’d rather slow down Chris Paul and Deandre Ayton than give extra attention to Booker. So, we’re going to ride this prop and watch as Booker lights it up once again.
Leg 4: Bucks Over 113.5 Points @ -110
This total is pretty much right on the number, but I’m counting on the Bucks and Giannis Antetokounmpo to play even better than they already have with an NBA championship on the line.
The Bucks are averaging 113 points per game during the NBA Finals, but they’ve broken the 120-point mark twice in their last three games, of which they’ve won all three. Milwaukee’s arena is going to be absolutely bumping on Tuesday night. Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday have been playing great and will continue that with the series on the line. My prediction is something like 118-115 as the winning score for Milwaukee. Similar to what we saw in Game 5.
