It's hard to bet against the Phoenix Suns, who have been winning and covering machines dating back to the bubble. The Oklahoma City Thunder are also on the end of a back to back, which doesn't help their case. With that said, OKC has had tons of covering success on the road, and they've quietly won three straight games. The Thunder are a young team where confidence is everything and this is a look ahead spot for the Suns with the Warriors on deck for a Christmas showdown. Lot of points here. Give me the Thunder and the boatload of free buckets.
