Betting on the Phoenix Suns (-4.5)
Regular Season Record: 48-19
The Suns will look to get back on track after suffering a 123-110 road loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday. That’s Phoenix’s second loss in three games, as prior to that, they won against the New York Knicks at home last Friday and to the Atlanta Hawks on the road last Thursday. Although they have been shaky of late, the Suns remain as one of the most formidable teams in the NBA, thanks in large part to the leadership of Chris Paul and a stacked roster that has elevated its play while playing alongside the Point God. With Paul at the helm of the offense, the Suns could be looking at taking advantage of the Warriors’ frontcourt that’s currently not a strength of Golden State. Deandre Ayton, Frank Kaminsky, and Dario Saric can all score and pick their spots on offense as Paul weaves his magic.
The Suns are the best team in the NBA when it comes to covering the spread after a loss. They are 15-4 against the spread this season in games after suffering a defeat.
Betting on the Golden State Warriors (+4.5)
Regular Season Record: 35-33
The Warriors have a two-game win streak going for them, with both wins coming at the expense of the tanking Oklahoma City Thunder. Before taking on Phoenix, the Warriors will look to extend their unbeaten run to three games when they take on the Utah Jazz this Monday at home. The Warriors are just feeding off the craziness of Stephen Curry on the court. Curry has been a video game cheat code this season, and in the last two games, he’s scored 34 and 49 points, respectively. Over the last five games, the two-time league MVP has put up 38.2 points on 48 percent shooting from the field and 44.9 percent from behind the arc. He’s getting help from Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole, while Draymond Green provides playmaking help and defense for Golden State that is 13th in the league with 113.4 points per game — 13th in the NBA overall.
The Warriors are 3-2 against the spread in their last five games against Phoenix, dating back to 2019.
The Suns win, 114-111.
