Phoenix Suns Betting Preview
The Phoenix Suns look for their second home win to improve to 3-1 on the year. The Phoenix Suns have won 6 of their last 7 home games. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 109.7 points on 46.4 percent shooting and allowing 102.7 points on 40.6 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 32 points and 8 assists, while Kevin Durant is averaging 27.7 points and 8.7 rebounds. Eric Gordon is the third double-digit scorer and Josh Okogie is grabbing 4.7 rebounds. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 29.7 percent from beyond the arc and 83.8 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 24.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 49.3 rebounds per game.
I considered the San Antonio Spurs and the points because the Phoenix Suns are likely going to be without Bradley Beal and Booker again. However, the Spurs haven't played a lick of defense up to this point, and that's not ideal with the Suns on the other side. Even without two of their three best players, the Suns are still a capable offense. Also, the Suns are a top-5 defense in the league through 3 games. I have to lay the chalk with the Suns, as the Spurs arr a young team still figuring out how to play as a unit.
