The Suns hit the court for the second time in as many nights after falling 123-112 to Golden State on Monday, and have also lost four of their past eight home dates. The Bucks earned a 133-124 win in a chippy road date with the Sacramento Kings on Monday night, and have now claimed victory in 10 of their past 11 road contests.

The Bucks have improved to 2-point road favourites since opening at -1.5. Conversely, the total has dipped slightly since opening at 233, and is currently pegged at 232.5.

Bucks vs. Suns NBA Betting Odds

Tuesday night’s matchup at Footprint Center marks the second and final regular season meetings between these clubs. The Bucks eked out a narrow 104-101 win when they hosted Suns back on February 26, and have now won two straight in head-to-head regular season action. However, the Suns have topped Milwaukee in each of their past four matchups in the desert. Last month’s tilt in Milwaukee ended well under the projected total of 231.5, snapping a steady 6-0 run for the OVER, during which the Suns averaged an impressive 129.2.

Milwaukee Bucks

The Bucks received a huge lift from Giannis Antetokounmpo in Monday’s win. Sidelined by a wrist injury in the club’s three previous outings, the “Greek Freak” showed no ill effects from his recent ailment while racking up a game-high 46 points to go along with 12 rebounds in the win. The Bucks are now undefeated in 11 straight road contests with Giannis in the lineup. But despite climbing to the top of the NBA standings while winning 20 of their past 22 overall, the Bucks have struggled to reward loyal sports betting fans of late, covering the spread in just two of their past six contests, and have lost outright in their past three visits to Phoenix as betting chalk. Despite those worrisome trends, the Bucks have remained w reliable bet when playing in the back half of games played on consecutive nights, going 8-1 straight up this season while amassing a 7-0-2 against the spread record over that stretch.

Phoenix Suns

The Suns stumbled out of the gate on Monday night, and saw a second-half rally fall well short in Monday’s loss to Golden State. Phoenix spotted the Warriors a 22-point lead by the end of the first quarter, and their efforts to close the gap were stymied by a dismal performance from beyond the arc, where they went just 4-for-21 on the night. After enjoying consistent defensive performances during a preceding 4-1 run in which they limited opponents to just 105.2 points per game, the Suns have been lit up for 125.5 points per game during their current 0-2 slide. Devin Booker has continued to provide an offensive spark, tallying a team-high 32 points in Monday’s loss, and has now averaged 35.3 points and six assists in six outings this month. Deandre Ayton has also been steady under the bucket. The Suns big man drained 27 points to go along with 12 boards on Monday, and has now recorded double-doubles in 10 of 15 outings.
