Milwaukee Bucks (-5)
The Bucks have taken full control of the Finals by winning three consecutive games to go up 3-2, and they can wrap up their first NBA title since 1971 with a victory at home on Tuesday night.
Milwaukee is a formidable 9-1 at home during the postseason, including 120-100 and 109-103 wins over Phoenix in this series.
Giannis Antetokounmpo has played at an incredibly high level since returning from a knee injury at the start of the Finals, Khris Middleton has chipped in with a couple of big performances and Jrue Holiday has done an excellent job of stifling Suns point guard Chris Paul.
The Suns have had a fantastic run, but they seem to have no answer for the Bucks’ size and physicality at this point and their season will likely end here.
Over 222 total points
Game 5 was the highest-scoring game of the Finals to date, with 242 total points scored, and this series has now averaged 224.6 points per game.
These were two of the league’s best offenses in the regular season and these games have been played at a high pace, so it’s worth backing the total to go over 222 points for the fourth time in this series.
Devin Booker over 30.5 points
With Chris Paul limited by the defense of Jrue Holiday, Booker has dominated the ball for the Suns and produced back-to-back 40-point games.
The star shooting guard has scored 31 points or more in three of the last four games so it’s worth taking the over here.
Brook Lopez over 11.5 points
Lopez was held to nine points in Game 5, but he’s still averaging 11.8 points per game in the Finals and 13.1 per game in the playoffs this season.
The Milwaukee big man has scored 14 points or more in four of the last seven games, including a 33-point night in Game 5 against the Atlanta Hawks.
