Milwaukee Bucks vs. Phoenix Suns CashBet Wagering Analysis

On this occasion, the online sportsbook handle will split evenly.  Gamblers will constantly monitor the injury status of Milwaukee superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo.  The Greek Freak was out for the Bucks final two games in the Eastern Conference Final.  But if Milwaukee is to beat the Suns, they must have Giannis in the lineup.  Giannis was the 2019 and 2020 NBA Most Valuable Player.  And the man that transformed, if not saved, the Bucks franchise.  Causal gamblers will not back Milwaukee without Giannis.

Milwaukee Makes Bucks When it Matters Most

Late on, the Bucks have covered six of their previous eight games.  Three of their last five stayed under the Betting on NBA total.  Milwaukee is coming Game 5 and 6 wins over the Atlanta Hawks to advance to the Finals.  Giannis was hurt in a Game 4 loss and remained out of the lineup.  His status is questionable at the start of the 2021 NBA Finals.

So far in the 2021 NBA Playoffs, Giannis leads the Bucks with 28.2 points, 12.7 rebounds, and 5.2 assists per game.  Milwaukee was able to cover for Giannis in Games 5 and 6 vs. a lesser Atlanta team.  Phoenix will provide a much tougher test.  Especially if Giannis can’t answer the bell.

Forward Khris Middleton picked up the slack when the Greek Freak was out.  Middleton is averaging 23.4 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per contest.  Most important of all, Middleton scored 32 points in Atlanta for the Game 6 clincher.

Guard Jrue Holiday was acquired to serve as the Bucks offensive quarterback.  While Holiday’s regular season was uninspiring, the playoffs have been impressive.  To illustrate, Holiday is averaging 17.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 8.4 assists per playoff game.

Rising Suns Set Phoenix Ablaze

Phoenix eliminated the Clippers in six games to make the 2021 NBA Finals.  Specifically, the Suns took full advantage of the Clippers’ best player, Kawhi Leonard, being out with injury.  Phoenix has covered 10 of their most recent 13 pro basketball betting playoff matchups.  While three of their last five went under the total.

Namely, Devin Booker has emerged as a new NBA superstar in the playoffs.  So far, the Phoenix guard leads with 27 points and 6.4 rebounds per contest.  Booker has proven to be one of the most valuable assets in basketball betting.

In this situation, the status of Giannis is of paramount importance.  Even if the Greek Freak makes it back to the hardwood, just how effective can he play?  Counter to that is a Phoenix team with surging NBA gambling momentum.  Further, the Suns’ best player, Devin Booker, is healthy.
