The Phoenix Suns are averaging 111.6 points on 48 percent shooting and allowing 105.1 points on 43.7 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 23.2 points and 4.9 rebounds, while Deandre Ayton is averaging 16.5 points and 11.2 rebounds.

The Spurs are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Monday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Suns are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games following a ATS loss and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 2 days rest. The under is 12-3-2 in Spurs last 17 road games. The over is 6-2 in Suns last 8 home games. The Spurs are 4-1-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Phoenix.
The Phoenix Suns are going to be favored for obvious reasons, as they're arguably the best team in the league, and they win at home by an average of 7.9 points. However, the Spurs are showing signs of life out of nowhere, which includes winning their last five games by an average of 8.6 points. The Suns are still without Booker, and that makes them slightly less attractive in the big favorite role. The Spurs are capable of hanging around. I'll grab the points.
Randy’s Pick San Antonio Spurs +7.5
