The Phoenix Suns will host the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night matchup in one of the finals games of the night. The home team has won three straight while the visitors are looking to secure a sixth straight victory. How will Giannis Antetokounmpo fare against one of the best defenses in the league? We’ll go over some ideal picks on DraftKings Sportsbook centered around the game here.
Pick ATS: Bucks -4
Milwaukee has won five straight games by double digits and is healthy for the most part heading into this matchup. Jrue Holiday has been ruled out because of COVID-19 health and safety protocols, but Phoenix’s backcourt is also spread thin. Chris Paul is questionable to play because of hamstring soreness, and Cameron Payne has been ruled out because of a right foot sprain. Dario Saric is also out while Jae Crowder is questionable, and that’s not ideal for a team that needs bodies to throw at one of the most dominant post finishers in the league. The Bucks have two reliable All-Stars to deploy against the Suns. Devin Booker will have to have another above-average performance to prevent this from being a blowout.
Player Prop: Khris Middleton U32.5 points, assists and rebounds (+115)
Middleton had a ceiling game in his last outing but fell below this mark in the six games that proceeded Monday’s game against the Denver Nuggets. He’ll draw a matchup from an elite 3-and-D in Mikal Bridges, so I wouldn’t bank on him lighting it up and exceeding expectations in back-to-back games.
