The Phoenix Suns NBA odds are favored in Game 1 for a reason and that main reason circles around the fact that Bucks superstar, Giannis Antetokounmpo, is listed as doubtful to suit up as he still deals with a knee injury he suffered in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Looking back to how these two matched up during the regular season, the Suns took full advantage of the Bucks at their best having won both regular-season games. Not to mention, Game 1 is on the Suns home court and the Suns have the fourth-best home record in the league at 27-9. That being said, bettors can and should play it safe betting on the Suns in Game 1.

Getting into the spread, a 6-point advantage might seem like a pretty hefty one considering that in both meetings between them in the regular season came down to 1-point decision, however, without Antetokounmpo on the floor, the Suns might be able to capitalize on this and cover the spread.

Looking at different spread trends for this Game 1 matchup, the Suns have done a nice job against the spread against the Bucks as they have gone 6-1 ATS in their last seven meetings. The Bucks have also gone 2-6 against the spread when going in as a road team underdog in their last eight games.

As for the game total, the Over has crushed recently between the two teams and for both teams individually. In the last four meetings between the Suns and Bucks, the Over has gone 4-0. Also, in the last five meetings between the two in Phoenix, it has gone 4-1.

Individually, the Suns have seen the Over hit more often than not including their last two games, and are also the fourth-best team with the Over going 48-39-1 up until this point in the season. The Bucks have also gone 2-0 with the Over in their last two games and are the sixth-best team in the league with the Over going 47-41-1 with the Over. With that, bettors should be clinging to the Over by all means.
