The Suns are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Trail Blazers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Suns last 4 overall. The over is 7-1 in Trail Blazers last 8 Tuesday games. The Suns are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings.

The Phoenix Suns may be banged up and on the end of a back to back, but they continue to win and cover numbers, and it's going to take more than one loss to knock me off the bandwagon. The Portland Trail Blazers have Lillard back, but they didn't look good against the Timberwolves, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 17.2 points. The Trail Blazers are a mess right now, with or without their best player back on the court. I'll lay the bucket.
