Phoenix Suns vs Brooklyn Nets betting tips and predictions for Saturday’s NBATV game. The win streak has reached 15 games in a row for the Phoenix Suns, but now they’ll be tested as they head to Brooklyn to take on the Nets. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.
Last time the Suns lost a game was October 27th against the Sacramento Kings, since then they’ve won 15 in a row and are just 2 wins away from a perfect month of November. Last night’s win at Madison Square Garden over the Knicks was impressive as Phoenix shot 55% from the floor in the 118-97 triumph. Devin Booker led the way with 32 points, while Chris Paul added 14 points plus 10 assists and Deandre Ayton had 14 and 13 rebounds. It was the Suns 7th straight road win, but they head to Brooklyn tonight where they’ve won just once in their last 6 visits. Bettors haven’t been happy with the way Phoenix has covered lately, they are just 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games and against Eastern Conference teams they’ve covered the spread just twice in their last 6 outings.
Brooklyn is also on a 4-game win streak following their 123-104 win over the Boston Celtics two days ago. It was a well balanced attack as 3 players scored 20+points while the entire team shot 50% from the field and 40% from downtown. With the win the Nets have now lost only twice in the month of November and have beaten 11 of their last 13 opponents. Both Kevin Durant and James Harden have had minor injuries to deal with, but the most recent reports suggest both of them are good to go for tonight. Brooklyn currently ranks 6th in the NBA in defensive rating which is a good sign when you’re facing the 6th best rated offense. In their last 10 games vs the Suns they have 8 wins and have covered the spread 7 times.
All win streaks have to come to an end at some point and I have a feeling it’s time for Phoenix’s to end. They’ve played last night, which means the Nets have an extra day of rest in this one. The Suns have gone just 3-9 ATS in their last 12 vs Brooklyn and I just don’t see anyone on their roster being able to stop Kevin Durant. Chris Paul will also have his hands full dealing with Harden, I think Brooklyn has enough to win this one.

Both teams love to put the ball in the basket and we can see that in their recent scoring trends. For the Nets the over has cashed in 7 of their last 8 games, including 4 of their last 5 vs Western Conference opponents. It’s a similar story for the Suns as their last 5 games have all gone over the total, including 5 of their last 6 vs teams from the Atlantic Division. This team has been on a scoring tear ever since their win streak started. They play at the 4th fastest pace in the NBA and over their last 3 games are averaging 120.3 points per game. Brooklyn isn’t far behind with 118.3 per game and are coming off a huge night against the Boston Celtics where they scored 123 points. The last 10 meetings have averaged 224.1 points per game, so I think we could be in for a higher scoring affair here. Let’s back the over.
