Game 1 of the NBA Finals was a roller coaster for Milwaukee Bucks fans. First, they were given a pleasant surprise of Giannis Antetokounmpo returning to the lineup. Then the Phoenix Suns completely dismantled them, possibly making many question if Giannis should have taken an extra night to rest. However, tonight is a new night and Game 2 could prove to be an important game in this series. For NBA betting tonight, the Bucks vs. Suns NBA betting picks preview will find the best NBA betting odds, give you some betting trends and show the best NBA picks and predictions available.

Bucks vs. Suns Betting Preview: NBA Finals Picks & Odds

Bucks vs. Suns Game Info

Milwaukee Bucks (46-26, 20-16 Away) vs. Phoenix Suns (51-21, 27-9 Home)
Date: Thursday, July 8, 2021
Time: 9 pm EST
Venue: Phoenix Suns Arena – Phoenix, Ariz.
Coverage: ABC

Game 1 started out competitive, though it still felt as though the Suns had a firm grasp on the game. They led by 4 points after the first quarter then extended that lead to 8 by halftime. However, the third quarter is what decided the game. Chris Paul scored 16 points in that period en route to 32 points in his NBA Finals debut. Paul picked on the Bucks’ defense all night long, with Milwaukee looking confused much too often. Some say basketball is half physical and half mental. The Suns were by far the smarter team on the floor, and they were plenty athletic as well.

Other notable performers were Deandre Ayton (22 points, 19 rebounds), Devin Booker (27 points), Khris Middleton (29 points) and Giannis (20 points, 17 rebounds).

For the Bucks to win tonight, they must make the defensive adjustments before and during the game. They must force Paul to make a decision then have the bodies in place to defend said decision. For the Suns, they need to make Milwaukee think defensively and continue to contest their shots. There is a reason why they are the NBA betting favorites.

Bucks vs. Suns NBA Betting Picks + Prediction

This game should play out much more competitively, like the first half in Game 1 was. It is unlikely that one team will fully take over and separate themselves. That being said, if one team does do that, it will be the Suns again. They have the homecourt advantage, the leadership advantage, they are better coached, have more scoring options off the bench and are just as talented as the Bucks.

They match up incredibly well, which is why they will fly to Milwaukee up 2-0.
