Bucks vs. Suns Game 6 Bets of the Day: 2021 NBA Finals Game 6 Best Bets
Jrue Holiday Over 33.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists (-105)
I’ve been playing this wager a lot recently. The Bucks signed Holiday to help defensively, but he can also do all of the little things. He’s capable of passing, shooting, and crashing the boards, as evidenced by his averages of 17.6 points, 9.0 assists, and 5.6 rebounds per game during this series.
Holiday is coming off a huge Game 5 that saw him post 27 points on 12-of-20 shooting along with 13 assists — both series highs for him. He’s also played extremely well at home throughout the playoffs, exceeding 20 points in five of his last six home games.
Holiday has also been playing a ton of minutes lately, averaging just under 41 minutes per game in this series. That’s helped him stuff the stat sheet even more and hit this over in two of his last three games. I’m expecting more big things from Holiday in Game 6.
Deandre Ayton Over 16.5 Points (-125)
Ayton has been a prominent scoring presence down low for Phoenix in this series, surpassing 18 points in three of the five games. He’s coming off 20 points in Game 5 and has logged heavy minutes throughout the Finals, exceeding 38 minutes four times — including just under 45 minutes in Game 5. Look for Ayton to stay on the court and approach 20 points again in Game 6.
Jrue Holiday To Record A Double-Double (+160)
As mentioned, Holiday is coming off a massive double-double in Game 5. He also narrowly missed a couple other double-doubles in this series, falling one assist shy in Games 1 and 3. Holiday’s only had two games this postseason where he failed to score at least 10 points, and he should continue to register high assists totals by feeding Giannis and Middleton. Factor in his hefty playing time, and I like his odds of notching another double-double in Game 6.
Under 222.5 Total Points (-110)
Game 5 was an offensive frenzy, and that’s how it’s gone with the Suns at home. The three games in Phoenix all ended with at least 223 points scored. Offense has been a little harder to come by in Milwaukee, however, as there were 220 total points scored in Game 3 and 212 points scored in Game 4. The added pressure of this game could also result in tighter defense and more missed shots than usual, so I’m betting the under here.
Milwaukee Bucks: Game 6 Keys To Victory
- Don’t Expect To Shoot Lights Out: The Bucks had a great offensive game plan against the Suns in Game 5, but Middleton and Holiday have been inconsistent throughout the postseason. Milwaukee can’t expect to shoot 57 percent from the field again in Game 6, so they’ll need to do the little things like they did in Game 4.
- The Big Three Need To Produce: Holiday and Middleton both stepped up in Game 5, taking the scoring pressure off Giannis and help the Bucks stage a massive comeback. If they play well again in Game 6, the Bucks will be very tough to beat.
- Win At Home (Again): The Bucks have been practically unbeatable at home in this postseason, going 9-1 at Fiserv Forum. Their home crowd has been electric and should be even more raucous with a chance to witness the city’s first NBA championship in 50 years. With the fans hanging on every play, Milwaukee just needs to keep it close.
Phoenix Suns: Game 6 Keys To Victory
- Limit Turnovers: The Suns had issues with turnovers in Games 3 and 4 in Milwaukee, so they’ll need to do a better job taking care of the ball in Game 6. After the last two games were decided by a handful of possessions, every turnover counts.
- Hold Onto Big Leads: The Suns have allowed the Bucks to come back from several big deficits in this series, costing them multiple wins in the process. This is unacceptable and obviously can’t happen in Game 6 in a win-or-go home scenario. Phoenix must keep its foot on the gas.
- Keep Feeding Booker: Booker has scored 40 or more points in his last two games, so the Suns should keep feeding the hot hand. He’s been lethal from all over the court and is their best shot creator, especially in crunch time.
