Minty Bets previews the betting odds for Game 3 of the NBA Finals between the Suns and Bucks on Sunday July 11.
MINTY BETS: Game 3 of the NBA Finals is Sunday, July 11th. Phoenix leads the series 2-0. Milwaukee is a 4-point favorite, and the total is 221 and 1/2. Phoenix is 4 and 0 against the spread their last four games as road underdogs while Milwaukee is 4 and 1 against the spread in their last five games at home. I kept thinking they were going to be able to keep the first two games close in Phoenix, but I was sadly mistaken.
The Bucks were underdogs in those two meetings, but now they're back at home and 4-point favorites. Giannis had 42 points and 12 rebounds on Thursday night and picked up Middleton and Holiday's slack. The Greek Freak said himself that he knows what's at stake, and he has to protect home.
Although this is a drastic line move from 5-point dogs to 4-point favorites, I like the Bucks to cover as favorites. And I'm sensing a little regression from the Suns in this one. I'm going to put my trust in the Bucks one more time. Bet $1 on either the Suns or Bucks and win $10 for every 3-pointer your team scores. Just head over to betmgm.com/yahoospecial.
