Phoenix Suns have a 13-51 record (27-37 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the last place of the West.

In their last game they saw a seven-game losing streak end by losing on the road against the Jazz with a 111-115 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Giannis Antetokounmpo with 27.1 ppg, adding team highs both in dimes made with 6 and in boards grabbed with 12.6 per game.

Bucks are better in boards grabbed (49.1 to 40.1), in dimes made (26.2 to 23.9) and in turnovers committed (13.4 to 15.4).
