Phoenix Suns vs San Antonio Spurs betting tips and predictions for Monday’s NBA game. The Phoenix Suns put their 12-game win streak on the line as they travel to San Antonio to take on the Spurs. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.
The month of November has been flawless for the Phoenix Suns, they’ve won 12 straight games and haven’t lost since October 28th when the Kings beat them. Their latest victim was the best defensive team in the NBA, but they had very little issues and beat the Nuggets 126-97 on their home floor. Cameron Johnson led the way with 22 points, Deandre Ayton added 21 of his own for the Suns who had a whopping 48 points in the opening 12 minutes. Facing the Spurs tonight will be an interesting challenge as they’ve struggled against them in recent meetings winning only 5 of the last 20 duels. It gets worse on the road where they’ve beaten San Antonio just 4 times in 20 games at the AT&T Center. If they want to get the win tonight they’ll have to do it without Frank Kaminsky who has been ruled out with a knee injury. Abdul Nader is also questionable for tonight.
San Antonio Spurs
San Antonio doesn’t have such issues with injuries this season, but they’ve struggled quite a bit by losing their last 4 games. All 4 losses came against teams from the Western Conference which isn’t a good sign if you’re trying to make the postseason. In the loss at Minnesota they shot just 41% from the field and a pedestrian 18% from three-point land. Those numbers will have to go up if they want to get anything out of tonight’s game. The Spurs home form has been up and down this season, they have just 2 wins in 6 games and they’ve covered the spread just once in their last 6 games overall. One interesting stat that pops up for this Spurs team is their record against Western Conference teams. They have just 1 win in their last 14 games against such opponents.
With the Suns rolling it’s hard to go against them here, even with all the struggles they’ve had in head-to-head meetings with the Spurs. Their leader Chris Paul attempted just 4 shots last night and they still won by 29 points against the best defensive team in the NBA. That speaks volumes and I think they get the job done fairly easily against the Spurs here. Back the Suns to cover.

The driving force behind this Phoenix Suns win streak has been their offense. They rank 3rd in the NBA right now in assist percentage with 63.4% of their baskets being assisted on. They have the 8th best offensive rating averaging 109.6 points per game and they are 5th in the league with a 53.8% effective field goal percentage. They are doing all this while playing the 4th fastest pace in the league, which is really impressive when you think about it. The Spurs also play at a fast pace, they are just one spot below the Suns averaging 101.3 possessions per game. In head-to-head meetings the last 2 of 3 games have gone over the total and the two teams are averaging 227.6 points in those games between them. The over has landed in 5 of the last 7 meetings and in 9 of 10 home games for the Spurs. I think this game has all the necessary ingredients for a high scoring outcome. Let’s back the over.
