Spread: Phoenix Suns +15
Phoenix Suns have a 11-45 record (24-32 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the last place of the West. They have lost 13 of their last 14 matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Jazz with an 88-116 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Devin Booker with 24.9 ppg, adding 3.8 boards and a team high 6.7 dimes per game. He is followed by TJ Warren with 18 ppg and 4 boards per game but he is out with an injury.
Golden State Warriors have a 38-15 record (24-28-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the first place of the West. They have won 13 of their last 14 matches and in their last game they won at home against the Spurs with a 142-101 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Stephen Curry with 28.9 ppg, adding 5.1 boards and 5.4 dimes per game. He is followed by Kevin Durant with 27.4 ppg, 6 dimes and a team high 7.1 boards per game.
Warriors have won both previous meetings against the Suns earlier this season (at home by 20 points and on the road by 23). Suns have a 7-21 home record, while the Warriors are 18-8 on the road. Warriors are better both offensively, scoring 119.1 ppg to Suns’ 105.9 and defensively, allowing 111.4 ppg to Suns’ 115.8. They have better percentages both in field goals (49.2% to 45.9%) and in 3-pointers (38.7% to 33.2%). Warriors are also better in dimes made (29.6 to 23.9), in turnovers committed (13.7 to 15.5) and in boards grabbed (46.6 to 39.8). Warriors are the absolute favorite and Vegas odds give them a -15 spread and expect them to beat the odds for an easy road win.
