Suns vs Bucks Prediction

Suns to Win on Spread (-4)

The Phoenix Suns have won the first two games of the series in front of their fans, but they lost the next two games in Milwaukee. Since Game 5 will be played in Phoenix, our first Suns vs Bucks prediction is for the Suns to cover the spread and win the game by at least four points. Of course, it’s hard to predict the winner here since both teams are fighting hard to win the NBA title, but the Suns have been great at home in these playoffs.

Under 218.5 Total Points

These two teams have been playin the best defense in the playoffs so far and with each game in the series now being more important than ever, we don’t expect to see many points in this match. We have already seen this in Game 4 of the series, which ended with a total of 212 points. With that in mind, we expect Game 5 to end with fewer than 219 points, combined by both teams.

Devin Booker Over 28.5 Total Points

The young guard has been fantastic in these playoffs with an average of 27.1 points per game. His average is even a bit better in the NBA Finals since he averaged 27.5 points per game so far in the Suns vs Bucks series. In addition to this, Booker was unstoppable in Game 4 with 42 points and we expect him to continue his great performance in Game 5 by scoring at least 29 points.

Suns vs Bucks preview for Game 5 – Who will take the lead in the series?

With the Suns vs Bucks series being tied at 2-2, Game 5 of the series will be very important in deciding who will become the next NBA Champion. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at the teams:

Phoenix Suns

After winning the first two games in the series, the Suns failed to do anything in the two NBA Finals games played in Milwaukee. Now the series are coming back to Phoenix and the Suns have a chance to take the lead once again and come within one win from becoming the NBA champions for the first time in history. If the Suns can keep the home-court advantage until the end of the series, they will win the NBA title. The team is almost completely healthy, with Dario Saric being the only player on their injury list.

Milwaukee Bucks

The Bucks have shown incredible mental fortitude to tie the series after going down 0-2 in the 2021 NBA Finals. Now, the Bucks have the harder task of getting a win in an away game before the series comes back in Milwaukee for Game 6. In any case, the Bucks are still without Donte DiVincenzo who is out for the season, but the rest of the team is healthy and prepared to fight for a win in Game 5.
