Stadium: Fiserv Forum (Milwaukee)
Game 6. The score in the series is 3-2.
The NBA season could be officially over this day. The Milwaukee Bucks lead the series against Phoenix 3-2 and, should they win the upcoming game at home, will celebrate their second championship title in history. But would the Suns agree? Let's pick a few options to bet on Game 6 of the final clash at once.
Milwaukee got a great lineup
After starting the series with two losses in a row, the Bucks not only took two more games at home but also beat Phoenix on their home court in Game 5. This was the most difficult and important win from a psychological point of view, which may allow the Bucks to formalize the championship title already at night.
The main players are well known and there is nothing new to say about them. Giannis Antetokounmpo, Chris Middleton, and Jrue Holiday are better than their opponents so far. However, there's still a step to go before the final victory. It looks like it will be the toughest game of their careers.
Phoenix needs a better defence
Phoenix will not be able to outplay the league's best offense in recent years. That's obvious already. Chris Paul is a genius, but Mike Budenholzer's offensive machine is better. The Bucks are ready to give it all to any opponent.
It turns out that it's vital for Phoenix to add to their defense. What worked in the first few games of the series, Monty Williams and others will have to revive it somehow. We'll see if they succeed. But it appears that the Suns deserve the seventh game one way or another.
Experts betting tips
This final series just can't end like that. Not only have Milwaukee and Chris Paul been going to the Finals for too long. The likelihood of Phoenix winning the upcoming game is very high. The confrontation is simply a must-win until Game 7. The betting odds are clearly skewed in the wrong direction here.

- A Phoenix win at odds of about 2.67;
