San Antonio Spurs vs Phoenix Suns betting tips and predictions for Monday’s game in the NBA. It’ll be the 2nd meeting of the season between the San Antonio Spurs and Phoenix Suns as they clash at the Valley tonight. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.
San Antonio Spurs – the owners of the 2nd longest win streak currently in the NBA. How does that sound? Pretty remarkable if you ask me. San Antonio has had issues with consistency all season long, but now they’ve put together a 4-game win streak beating even the Golden State Warriors on the road the other night, something even the Suns couldn’t do. They face a tough challenge tonight though, but their fans will be optimistic ahead of this one as they’ve gone 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and have beaten the Suns 10 times in their last 11 visits to Phoenix. The average margin of victory during their 4-game win streak has been 14.2 points per game, something to think about before placing a bet on tonight’s game.
San Antonio Spurs
The winning streak is over and now it’s time for the Phoenix Suns to come back to reality. It was bound to end at some point, the Suns were able to stretch it to 18 games in a row which is a new franchise high. They lost by 22 points on the road at Golden State, not having Devin Booker really hurt them in that game as they managed only 96 points on 38% shooting from the field. Deandre Ayton was the lone bright spot with 23 points, but that was pretty much all he did the entire game. Phoenix will look to bounce back here, they haven’t been as productive when it comes to covering the spread though. Against Western Conference teams they are just 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games.
With Booker out the offense is definitely suffering for the Suns, at home this season they’ve gone just 6-6 in 12 games. Asking them to beat a team on a 4-game win streak by 8 points could be a bit too much. Let’s back the Spurs in this one.
Phoenix Suns – San Antonio Spurs Predictions & Odds
San Antonio +7.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds on bet365
San Antonio has held 3 of 4 opponents to under 100 points during their win streak and their road games tend to end under the total more often than not. This has happened 8 times in 11 road games this season, plus in 10 of their last 13 dating back to last season even. The last 3 head-to-head have all gone over, but circumstances have changed here with the Suns missing their top scorer and San Antonio playing quality defense at the moment. Phoenix games in December go under the total for some reason, this has happened in 6 of their last 7. Whenever they play on a Monday we see low scoring games, 7 of their last 9 played on this day have all gone under the total. I think they’ll have issues scoring on this San Antonio team tonight, they could very well finish under 100 points again without Booker. Let’s back the under.
