Phoenix Suns


Suns ATS Point Spread

Over Game Totals

Against the Spread Pick

The Houston Rockets will be playing the second game of a back-to-back situation when they visit the Phoenix Suns on Friday. Houston is a team in transition, having dealt Clint Capela while acquiring Robert Covington in a four-team trade prior to Thursday’s deadline. The Rockets had lost two of their past three road games prior to facing the Lakers on Thursday. There are not a whole lot of great things to say about the Suns, but at least both Deandre Ayton and Devin Booker are healthy at the same time right now. The Rockets are 2-7 ATS in their last nine on the road, 5-14 ATS in their last 19 on the road against opponents with home winning percentages under .400, and 1-4 ATS in their last five playing on no days of rest. PHOENIX should be the play.

Over Under Pick

It is is safe to say that Houston will be playing fast and won’t be playing much interior defense given the team’s new look. A total of 264 points were scored in the previous head-to-head matchup this season. The over is 5-2 in the Rockets’ last seven overall. It is also 11-5 in the Suns’ last 16 against opponents with winning records. Additionally, the over is 13-6 in the last 19 meetings between the two teams and 6-1 in Houston’s last seven trips to Phoenix. Go with the OVER.
