Betting NBA Finals Game 3

  • Moneyline: Bucks -175
  • Moneyline: Suns +155
  • Spread: Bucks -4
  • Totals: O/U 222

Looking at how the first two games went, betting fans may be looking at these odds as the perfect way to cash in on longshot betting.

Phoenix has been on fire throughout the postseason, and Milwaukee has so far shown no answer for stopping them, as Phoenix held control of both games throughout.

Phoenix has also dominated the spread, currently sitting 4-0 ATS as an underdog, 4-0 ATS after allowing 100 points, and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games.

Even if NBA betting fans don’t expect them to win, at least taking the Suns to cover the spread has so far been a successful wager.

Still, however, Milwaukee has a few things going for them that possibly explains why sportsbooks are showing as much confidence in the Bucks.

For starters, Giannis Antetokounmpo has been in MVP form so far in the series, posting a historical 42-point performance where he dropped 20 pts in a single quarter, the most in 20 seasons.

Giannis’s performance could light a fire in the rest of his team which simply did not show up in Game 2.

Khris Middleton shot an abysmal 5 for 16 from the field and hit only one three-pointer off of six attempts for just 11 total points. Jrue Holiday fared no better, shooting 7 for 21 to score 17 points.

The pair struggled to support their Super Star, with Middleton, in particular, having a +/- of -15 when he was on the floor.

If Middleton, Holiday, and the rest of the role players on the team hit some shots to go along with Giannis’s big game, the Bucks may have been able to take the win.

Both players tend to play better when at home, so sports betting fans are expecting the Bucks to perform much better and take the win. Taking them to cover the spread could net even bigger returns if Milwaukee dominates.

For betting fans who are on the fence on both teams, betting on the totals could net big wins at USA online sportsbooks.

Both teams have been on a roll with scoring, in these playoffs. The Suns have hit the over in their last four games and the Bucks are 4-0 with hitting the over when their opponent scores 100 points or more.

This may be an easy wager to cash in on while betting on the NBA Finals.
