The Suns are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Nuggets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Suns last 6 overall. The over is 4-0 in Nuggets last 4 overall. The Suns are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Denver and 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Phoenix Suns in the underdog role is attractive, but they spent a lot of energy last night to come back against the Timberwolves, and Denver is the worst place in the league to play on the end of back to backs due to the altitude. The Denver Nuggets haven't been great against the number this season, and they haven't been strangers to weird losses, so I wouldn't talk you off the ledge if chasing the value of the Suns here. However, this is a rough schedule spot for the road team. I'd lean Nuggets if forced to pick this contest.
