NBA Betting Trends
The Suns are 5-1 against the spread in their last six road games, but 2-6 ATS in their last eight games when playing on 1 day of rest.
The Spurs are 9-21 against the spread in their last 30 home games and 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games as a home favorite.
The Spurs have won a pair of 2-point games in Phoenix already this season, both being offensive showdowns. San Antonio is playing pretty well on offense as of late and I think that will continue against the Suns tonight. Phoenix doesn’t do much defensively. The Suns just aren’t a defense I can trust on the road right now, especially against an opponent that can score like San Antonio can.
NBA Prediction: San Antonio Spurs -4.5
