Milwaukee 123 @ Phoenix 119 | 07/18 | 1:00 AM UTC

Milwaukee +155

WIN

ANALYSIS: Phoenix goes home knotted up at 2 in the series, but you have to believe the Suns know they let Game 4 slip through the cracks. Now all the pressure is on Phoenix to win this game and protect its home court. I believe the difference in this game will be Jrue Holiday, who finally plays better offensively as the Bucks take control of the series. Fear the deer.

+306 3-1 IN LAST 4 MIL ML PICKS

Milwaukee 108 @ Phoenix 118 | 07/09 | 1:00 AM UTC

Milwaukee +4.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Milwaukee will make defensive adjustments in Game 2 after falling by 13 points in the series opener, especially limiting Brook Lopez’s playing time. Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo was moving better than we all expected in his return from a knee injury, and he will be even sharper in Game 2. The points are huge. Take all of them!

+80 3-2 IN LAST 5 MIL ATS PICKS

Milwaukee 105 @ Phoenix 118 | 07/07 | 1:00 AM UTC

Milwaukee +5.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Suns have not played since June 30th. I do not view that as a great thing. Think about the last three games the Bucks have lost over the last month and what it took to beat Milwaukee in those games. In one game Giannis Antetokounmpo went down, in another Kevin Durant had 49 points and in the other game Trae Young had 48. I think the Bucks are lacking respect in this spot. This is way, way too many points. Fear The Deer.

+80 3-2 IN LAST 5 MIL ATS PICKS

Denver 105 @ Phoenix 122 | 06/08 | 2:00 AM UTC

Denver +5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: This has a Phoenix letdown written all over it. Deandre Ayton vs. Nikola Jokic will be the matchup to watch, but I still give the major edge to the Nuggets.

+470 8-3-1 IN LAST 12 DEN ATS PICKS

Milwaukee 86 @ Brooklyn 125 | 06/07 | 11:30 PM UTC

Milwaukee -115

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Bucks lost the Game One three-point battle by 27 points. The Nets made nine more threes. Milwaukee cannot shoot 6 of 30 from three-point range again. I love Milwaukee in this spot. It's hammer time.
