SportsLine analyst Larry Hartstein has identified the right side to back in his analysis below. Hartstein is a blistering 60-33 on his last 93 ATS picks involving the Suns, a stretch that has made bettors more than $2400.
Milwaukee wasn't able to steal a game in Phoenix, but the Bucks found offensive answers in Game 2. Giannis Antetokounmpo was dominant in scoring 42 points, and the Bucks generated 1.15 points per possession without the benefit of efficient three-point shooting. Moreover, Milwaukee can reasonably expect more from Jrue Holiday and Khris Middleton, with Phoenix potentially due for shooting regression.
The Suns have been tremendous in the first two games of the series, scoring nearly 1.2 points per possession. Given that Milwaukee leads the 2021 NBA Playoffs in defensive rating, that is an incredibly impressive feat. In addition, Phoenix's top-tier defense has made strides and generated enough stops to put away back-to-back wins by double figures.
Hartstein has locked in confident picks for Suns vs. Bucks Game 3. We can tell you he's leaning Under the total, but he's isolated a critical X-factor that makes one side a MUST-BACK! You ABSOLUTELY need to see what it is before locking in any picks of your own.
