The Phoenix Suns are averaging 101.5 points on 43.2 percent shooting and allowing 102 points on 38.9 percent shooting.

The Phoenix Suns are going to get the benefit of the doubt from oddsmakers, and it doesn't hurt they're at home with the rest advantage. The Jazz played last night. However, this is decent sized chalk for a Suns team that's still down Bradley Beal and likely Devin Booker. The Suns are without two of their three best players. The Utah Jazz aren't a bad basketball team, and they're coming off a nice win last night over the Clippers. I'll take a stab with the free points.
