Phoenix Suns vs. Milwaukee Bucks Prediction
After one of the more entertaining and competitive Finals games to be played in some time, the Milwaukee Bucks now find themselves 48 minutes from their first title in a half century.
If you’re looking for reasons to bet them to take care of this thing at home, you don’t have to look far. For the playoffs, the Bucks are outscoring teams by 13.3 points per 100 possessions in Milwaukee, which is second only to the Brooklyn Nets and nearly double the next highest team.
There are a few reasons for the dominance. In their own building, Giannis & Co. get to the line 5.7 more times per game and hit their freebies at a significantly higher clip – something they overcame in Game 5, when they went just 9-for-17. Their star backcourt also brings it on a more consistent basis, with Kris Middleton and Jrue Holiday hitting 47 and 44 percent of their shots in Milwaukee, respectively, as opposed to 41 and 40 percent on the road.
Most of all, their defense comes alive. The Bucks give up just 100.3 points per 100 possessions in their own building, which is the best number in the postseason by over five points per 100. The Suns, meanwhile, have just the ninth best road offensive rating in the playoffs, and scored just 100 and 103 points in Games 3 and 4 in Milwaukee.
With Chris Paul simply not looking like himself since early on in this series, it’s impossible to think this goes any other way than a resounding Bucks win.
