The Brooklyn Nets look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 110.1 points on 44.4 percent shooting and allowing 112.1 points on 44.3 percent shooting. Kyrie Irving is averaging 28.3 points and 6.5 assists while Spencer Dinwiddie is averaging 21.4 points and 3.3 rebounds.

The Suns are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Monday games, 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games as a road underdog and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games as an underdog. The Nets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Monday games and 5-14 ATS in their last 19 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Suns last 5 overall. The over is 5-2 in Nets last 7 overall. The under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Brooklyn.
The Phoenix Suns have played some of their best basketball on the road where they've won four of their last six and are 14-9 ATS on the season. The Brooklyn Nets aren't winning games and shouldn't be favorites with the news of Kyrie being out for at least another week. There's not a lot of teams in this league I'm running to the window to lay chalk with the Nets without their best two players. Give me the Suns and the free bucket in a game they should win outright.
