NBA Finals Rematch Highlights a Busy Sports Betting Sunday

nba Mar 06, 2022

Sports fans and bettors will find an attractive 16-game menu in basketball and hockey this busy Sunday.

Eight games are on the NHL card, including several apparent mismatches (Kings-Sabres; Lightning-Blackhawks; Kraken-Hurricanes; Senators-Golden Knights).

Meanwhile, the eight games on the NBA board appear to be far more unpredictable.

Perhaps no game is more anticipated this weekend than the NBA Finals rematch.

Phoenix Suns (51-12) vs Milwaukee Bucks (36-25) takes place on Sunday, Mar. 6, with tip-off at 3:30 pm ET from Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, WI.

In last year's championship series, the Bucks won 4 games to 2, and swept all three contests played in Milwaukee.

The Suns are ranked #5th in offense and 6th in defense and the Bucks are ranked #4th in offense and #16th in defense. posts the odds here.

OPINION (courtesy of

Phoenix has been the NBA's best team for most of the season, but they will be tested over the next few games now that leading scorer Devin Booker has joined Chris Paul on the sidelines for health and safety protocols.

A month ago, a healthier Suns team whipped the Bucks by 24 points at home, but this looks to be an entirely different situation.

Accordingly, we look for a different outcome this time around. It's hard to bet against a great team like the Suns, yet with two of their best players off the court and the Bucks at home, we'll take them to win and cover the spread.
