Best bets for the NBA Finals

It’s down to two. The Suns and Bucks will battle it out for the NBA championship. There are still plenty of betting opportunities, both for games and in futures. Who will emerge as the NBA champion?

Our analysts — Doug Kezirian (29-16 regular season, 1-2 play-in, 17-13 playoffs), Joe Fortenbaugh (14-14, 1-1, 17-18, André Snellings (61-42-1, 5-4, 77-67-2), Tyler Fulghum (24-30, 1-1, 26-15) and Anita Marks (24-17, 0-6, 36-31) — are here to give their best bets for the Finals.

Wednesday’s NBA Finals best bets

Game 4: Phoenix Suns at Milwaukee Bucks (-4, 220.5)

Suns lead series 2-1

Fortenbaugh: Game 3 featured an interesting discrepancy in free throws, as Milwaukee made 26 trips to the charity stripe (third-most in 20 playoff games) while Phoenix attempted just 16 free throws (sixth-fewest of 19 playoff games). I’m not floating a conspiracy theory, but I am suggesting that we won’t see a repeat of those statistics in Game 4. Further, Phoenix’s 3-point shooting in Game 3 checked-in at an abysmal 29 percent, good for the team’s fourth-worst shooting effort in 19 postseason appearances. I expect some positive regression on that front, especially when it comes to Devin Booker (3-for-14 from the field, 1-for-7 from deep). Remember, between the regular season and postseason, the Suns are an impressive 18-6 straight up and 17-7 against the spread this season.
