Phoenix Suns vs Portland Trail Blazers prediction

The Phoenix Suns should win this game by a lot, but they should've done a lot of things this season, and the bottom line is they've lost 6 of their last 9 games and are 10-15-1 ATS. The Suns are still down Bradley Beal, and they've failed to cover 8 of their last 10 games. The Portland Trail Blazers aren't winning games, either, but they've at least covered 6 of their last 10 games. Both struggling teams, but we're getting points with the Blazers, and they're at home. Cant lay chalk with the underachieving Suns. It's Portland or pass for me.
