It’s the 2nd and final regular season meeting between the 2021 NBA Finalists as the Phoenix Suns head to Milwaukee for a date with the Bucks. We have an early tip-off here at 1 pm ET on ABC, I’ve done a Same Game Parlay to spice things up a little.

Don’t forget to head over to our NBA Picks page for selections on the spread and total for Sunday’s games.

Let’s dive into my SGP bet now!

Bradley Beal Over 1.5 Made Threes (-128)

Giannis Antetokounmpo to Score 30+ Points (-155)

Jusuf Nurkic to Record 14+ Rebounds (+135)

Same Game Parlay odds: +486

Bradley Beal over 1.5 made threes (-128)

Beal’s efficiency has gone up significantly over the past 8 games. He’s at 52.1% from the field and a really good 44.1% from downtown in those games, while averaging 20 points a night. He didn’t have to do much against the Hornets in the 107-96 win on Friday, so he should have plenty of energy left in the tank for today’s match-up with Damian Lillard. I really fancy his chances of knocking down a couple of threes against Lillard who isn’t really known to be an elite defender. Beal has the size advantage so he can pretty much just shoot over him here. As a team the Bucks have really struggled to contain opponents’ three-point shooting lately, they’re allowing 40.2% made threes over their last 3 outings. Beal has enough experience to find his spots here and knock down a couple of shots.

Giannis Antetokounmpo to score 30+ points (-155)

Giannis is aiming to score 30+ points for the 4th consecutive game here. He’s averaging 30.9 per contest over his last 9 outings, on spectacular efficiency numbers both from the field (61.4%) and from three-point land (44.4%). Getting 30 against Kevin Durant will be a challenge, but it’s one Giannis is more than happy to take on. In the last 5 meetings between the two superstars the Greek Freak is at 35.6 points per game and he’s failed to clear this number only once during that stretch. In the first meeting of the season he dropped 34 on KD, but the Bucks weren’t able to get the win. With revenge on his mind and his superstar teammate Damian Lillard struggling to score, Giannis will look to take over the offensive responsibilities here.

Jusuf Nurkic to record 14+ rebounds (+135)

The Bosnian beast has been doing work on both ends lately, he’s averaging 15.9 rebounds per game in the month of March which is by far his most productive month of the season so far. He recorded a rare 20 rebound game in back-to-back outings against the Celtics and Hornets, in a span of just 2 days. He’s doing all this by averaging just 28 minutes per game, which makes it all that more impressive. Entering the game against the Bucks, he’s on a 5-game streak of double-digit rebounds against them, he finished the first meeting of the season with 10 rebounds about a month ago. That number should go up here, other than Giannis I can’t really see the likes of Brook Lopez or Bobby Portis giving him issues on the boards. Milwaukee allow opponents to get at least 51.7 rebounds per game this season, ranking in the bottom tier of the NBA. Fingers crossed Nurk is able to capitalize on that.
