Tom Stryker’s Free Basketball Play February 2nd


#540 MILWAUKEE (-) over Phoenix at 2:05 PM EST
In a feisty mood off Friday’s 127-115 home loss to Denver, Milwaukee will take its frustrations out against visiting Phoenix on Sunday afternoon. The Suns make the trek to Wisconsin off Friday’s 111-107 road loss at Oklahoma City and, on a 2-4 SU and ATS run in their last six games, Phoenix will be in serious trouble here. Let’s break down the numbers.

Finding motivation for this contest will be easy for the Bucks. According to the Team Stryker Database, Milwaukee is a surprising 0-2 SU and ATS in its last two games in this series and a ridiculous 15-42 SU and 20-36-1 ATS in its 57 overall. Thankfully, head coach Mike Budenholzer’s boys have been a serious force when coming off a straight up loss posting a sensational 30-4 SU and 25-9 ATS record in their last 34 tries. Provided both teams are rested in this situation, the Bucks improve to a lucrative 25-4 SU and 23-6 ATS including a stunning 23-2 SU and 21-4 ATS they take the court off exactly one blemish. With those three parameters live and Milwaukee priced between -3.5 and -13, this team trend explodes to a golden 16-0 SU and ATS!

This is a really poor wagering spot for Phoenix too. As a road dog grabbing +10 or more and running the floor against a foe that checks in off a straight up loss, the Suns own a dismal 3-46 SU and 18-29-2 ATS record in their last 49 battles. In this spot competing against a foe that holds a team won/loss percentage of .652 or better, Phoenix falls to an ugly 0-20 SU and 2-17-1 ATS. Also, when rested and fighting a foe that arrives off a SU and ATS loss, the Suns own a pitiful 20-62 SU and 31-49-2 ATS mark. As long as Phoenix is not off a blowout win of eight points or more, this team trend falls to a woeful 16-53 SU and 24-43-2 ATS.

Last year, the Suns were the only NBA team to knock off the Bucks in two meetings against one another. Phoenix will pay dearly for that here. Take Milwaukee. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
