The Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns meet Tuesday night for Game 6 of the NBA Finals with the home team looking to close out the series on a four-game winning streak. The Suns will attempt to take a game on the road and force Game 7. Here’s how the public is approaching Game 6 in Milwaukee.
Below is a look at the betting splits among bettors at DraftKings Sportsbook.
The Bucks are favored a -5, but the bettors are backing Phoenix after two close contests. 59 percent of the money and 64 percent of wagers are coming in on the Suns at +5. The underdogs are expected to keep things tight again in Game 6.
Most of the money is actually coming in on the under at 222, but bettors are still mostly taking the over with 59 percent of wagers. Three of the five games in the Finals have gone over this line and Game 3 was a triple away from going over. The over is more likely to occur, even though bettors are putting bigger bets on the under.
Bettors are mostly backing the Bucks (-200) to close out the series in six games, but those backing the Suns (+170) are putting in more money with 65 percent of the money coming in on Phoenix.
Update: We’ve seen some steady movement toward the under at 222, down 2 percent from yesterday. Most of the spread and moneyline action is on the Suns, to cover and force Game 7. Phoenix came close enough in the past two games and should have some urgency with the season on the line.
