We go over each category and give predictions for DraftKings pool for Game 5 as the Phoenix Suns face the Milwaukee Bucks in 2021 NBA Finals.

Can Milwaukee upset Phoenix on the road in Game 5?

The Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks meet in Game 5 of the NBA Finals with the series tied 2-2. Both teams will be looking to grab the edge in this one and set up a clinching scenario in Game 6. The home team has won each contest so far.

Below is a look at a number of predictions ahead of Saturday night’s game for the Free $5K DraftKings Pools - Playoff Edition (MIL-PHX).

Bucks vs. Suns Game 5 pool picks

Which team will cover the spread? Suns -4.5 or Bucks +4.5

The home team has won every game and that team has covered the spread in every game. Take the Suns in this one.

How many total points will be scored? Over/under 218.5

Game 4 is the only total to go below this line. Both teams are scoring the ball well and if it wasn’t for a poor start, they would’ve hit the over in Game 4 as well. Take the over here in a high-scoring series.

Which team will score 15 points first?

The Suns are suddenly the team looking to find momentum after losing two straight games. The Bucks are on a roll and have actually gotten off to some good starts. However, Phoenix is the play here at home.

Which team will make more 3-pointers?

The teams tied in this category in Game 4, although the Bucks took more attempts than the Suns. Volume will almost always favor Milwaukee, but the Suns shot the ball well from deep at home. Take Phoenix in this category as well.

Will Khris Middleton and Devin Booker score more than 25 points?

Both players went big in Game 4 with Middleton tallying 40 points and Booker going for 42. Don’t expect similar numbers in Game 5, even though both stars are scoring the ball well. 25 points is a decent threshold and both teams are putting up points. Take both guards to hit this milestone.

Giannis Antetokounmpo points, rebounds and assists? Over/under 53.5

This number has gone up from 52.5 in previous pools. Antetokounmpo went under in Game 4 with 48 combined points, rebounds and assists but he also didn’t drop 40 points. The Greek Freak is always going to come close to this mark. Take the over, but it’ll be tight.

Devin Booker points, rebounds and assists? Over/under 38.5

Dont expect Booker to shatter this mark on points alone in Game 5, but the over is still the play. The Suns guard is back after his dismal Game 3 showing and will look to keep getting shots up in Game 5.

Which team will win the 4th quarter?

The Bucks won this category in Game 1 and 4. The Suns took Game 3. The teams tied in Game 2. Take Phoenix to win the final frame at home in a pivotal Game 5.
