Tuesday’s NBA Finals best bets

Game 1: Milwaukee Bucks at Phoenix Suns (-5.5, 218.5)

Fulghum: This NBA postseason has been an absolute war of attrition…and nobody has survived more capably than the Suns. The favorite in Game 1 of the Finals is 14-1 outright and 13-2 ATS over the last 15 postseasons, and confidence should only increase on the Phoenix side given Giannis Antetokounmpo’s tenuous health situation.
