Phoenix Suns Fantasy Spin
Devin Booker (right hamstring) said his hamstring felt "fine" after Monday's game and believes he will be able to play Wednesday vs. Utah. Booker sat out the final six minutes of Monday's loss to the Rockets after he grabbed at his hamstring and exited the game. He was seen on the bench with ice on his right hamstring. Afterward, Igor Kokoskov said that it was simply a cramp. Booker said it felt fine and sat out just because he didn't want it to worsen, and he's not even being listed on the injury report for Wednesday, so he should be fine.
Utah Jazz Fantasy Spin
Rudy Gobert accounted for ten points (3-of-8 FGs, 4-of-6 FTs), 13 rebounds, two blocked shots, one assist and one steal in 29 minutes Saturday vs. the Rockets. After dropping 25 points and 13 rebounds on the Hawks Friday night, Gobert had a tough night offensively in Utah’s loss to Houston. Saturday’s effort ended a run of four consecutive games in which the All-Star snub shot 50% or better from the field. Gobert and the Jazz will have the opportunity to bounce back Monday when they host the Suns, one of the NBA’s worst teams.
NBA Betting Trends
The Suns are just 2-5 at the betting window in their last seven games overall and have dropped nine of their last 13 games against the spread when playing on one day of rest.
The Jazz have a 12-3-1 record against the number in their last 16 games following an ATS loss in their previous game.
The Suns’ record and current 11-game losing streak speak for themselves, but this is still too many points to lay for bettors. Phoenix has actually been profitable on the road over its last 13 games, covering the spread nine times over that span. The Jazz, meanwhile, are just 2-5-1 against the spread in their last eight hoe games and were blown out twice in their previous two games, once in Portland (132-105) as a 2.5-point favorite and once to the Rockets (125-98) as a 7-point home favorite. Despite their recent 10-game success, the Jazz are trending in the wrong direction to be laying 14.5 points in a potential letdown spot.
