Milwaukee Bucks have a 53-10 record (36-27 against the spread) and are sitting on top of the whole NBA. They have lost two of their last three matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Lakers with a 103-113 score, not beating the odds. Giannis Antetokounmpo leads the team in scoring with 29.6 ppg, in rebounding with 13.7 and in assists made with 5.8 per game. Kris Middleton follows with 20.7 ppg, 4.1 assists and 6.3 rebounds per game.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Bucks won at home with a 129-108 score. Suns are 12-22 home, while the Bucks are 25-7 on the road. Bucks are better both offensively, scoring 118.8 ppg to Suns’ 112.2 and defensively, allowing 106.8 ppg to Suns’ 113.5. They also have better percentages both in field goals (47.8% to 46.4%) and in 3-pointers (35.6% to 35.1%). Both teams are very close in turnovers committed (15 to 15.1), while Bucks are better in rebounding (52 to 423) and Suns are only better in assists made (27.1 to 26). Bookmakers give the Bucks a -4.5 spread and expect them to beat the odds for the bounce-back win today.
