The Warriors are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 34-16-2 ATS in their last 52 games overall. The Suns are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 10-4-1 in Warriors last 15 overall. The over is 3-1-1 in Suns last 5 overall. The under is 20-7 in the last 27 meetings in Phoenix and 10-1 in the last 11 meetings.

It's very tempting to take the Golden State Warriors and the free points, a team that's been winning and covering machines all year. However, you can say the same thing about the Suns. The Warriors are missing key players due to injuries or COVID, and this is a spot where they need to be at full strength to like their chances. The Suns are about as healthy as you can get during this COVID outbreak. The Suns are also winning by an average of 17 points during this winning streak. Also, the home team has won and covered the last five meetings between these clubs. Give me the Suns and reasonable chalk.
