The Phoenix Suns look like an excellent home dog when they host the shorthanded Milwaukee Bucks Wednesday night. Milwaukee has lost back-to-back games, and here it will have to do without both center John Henson who underwent an eye procedure and forward Mirza Teletovic had arthroscopic knee surgery on Tuesday.
This will be Eric Bledsoe’s first game against his former team, and don’t expect a warm welcome at Talking Stick Resort Arena. The home town crowd will no doubt be pumped up to help the Suns win, particularly after Bledsoe’s behavior before leaving the organization.
Phoenix has recorded consecutive victories (against the Lakers and the Bulls) and averaged 117 points over its last three contests. Pretty, pretty good numbers.
The Suns are just 4-7 at home this season, but the Bucks are often overrated as road favorites going 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of less than .400. We can also note that the Bucks took a 99-88 beating by Washington their last time out and they’re just 2-6-1 ATS in their last nine games following a double-digit loss at home.
My free pick is on Phoenix Suns.
